If You’re Struggling Try And Take Some Positive Action Every Day
Stone Payton: [00:00:00] And we are back with Business RadioX Pro Tips. Lee Kantor and Stone Payton here with you this afternoon. Lee, I know some folks are really struggling out there from time to time. What advice, if any, can we offer the person who has been recently laid off?
Lee Kantor: [00:00:17] Yeah, if you’ve been recently laid off, I’m sorry, number one. Number two, try to take action every day. That’s a really important part of this process. Everybody has been laid off, but your phone’s not going to ring by itself. It just doesn’t happen. You have to take action every day in order for people to respond to you. And hopefully, you had a plan ahead of time for this eventuality because everybody’s gone through this. So, if you thought you were bulletproof, this is a new world. Nobody’s bulletproof anymore. So, it’s important to take action.
Lee Kantor: [00:00:54] And some of the actions you can take is you have to decide what your next step is going to be. Are you going to consult? Are you going to get another job? Are you going to buy a business? Are you going to buy a franchise? What are you going to do? And once you make that decision, then start telling people and socializing this, you know. Tell your close friends in your network what you’re up to, “This is what I’m up to. This is what I need. I need clients that do this,” or “I’d like to get into this kind of business.” Ask them for business. Start at your close friends first, and then go out further and further with your contacts in your network.
Lee Kantor: [00:01:30] But it’s important to take action every day, have a plan and then just relentlessly execute it until you’ve achieved success. But start with your closest friends, work out to your personal network, and then eventually get to LinkedIn and just keep going. Don’t give up.
