How My Subscription Boxes Got Ran Over – And I’m Not Mad About It! | Episode 28Jul 28, 2021
No matter how hard we try, no matter how much we think about and plan for every possibility, something is going to go wrong. Don’t worry! It happens to all of us at one point or another.
Being a business owner means that you need to be ready for when the worst happens because how you deal with that situation can mean the difference between really stretching those problem-solving skills and becoming completely derailed.
Don’t Let it Break You, Let it Make You
The truth is that things are going to happen that are out of your control. My story this week about my boxes being scattered all across the road is definitely one of those situations. Murphy’s law has a way of striking when you’re least expecting, so we as business owners need to be ready to pick up the pieces and move forward.
The important thing to remember is that this is your business. You built it from the ground up, and nothing is going to keep you from being successful. But you’re not in this alone!
Don’t let the unexpected break you, let it make you and show you what you really are capable of. - Sarah Williams
One thing I love about the group we have, all of us subscription box owners, is to be able to fall back on each other to help us through those times when the problems seem overwhelming.
If you need help, don’t be afraid to ask for help.
Take that time to breathe in and calm your nerves, because we all need that sometimes, but use it to right yourself and clear your head for the task in front of you. Don’t let the unexpected break you, let it make you and show you what you really are capable of.
