We are living in extraordinary and very challenging times.
The coronavirus pandemic is creating widespread panic and lots of uncertainty and stress for people, companies and economies. This really is a crisis situation.
At times like this, business leaders have an incredible responsibility. Our decisions and actions impact a lot of people… our family, our employees, our clients and our community.
Although most of you know me as someone who helps companies to create game-changing international strategies, I’m no stranger to crisis.
What many of you won’t know is that I worked in Iraq between 2006 and 2010, helping the US and British governments to get the country back on its feet.
It was intense.
I worked in almost total lockdown for four years and when I did go out, I wore body armour and had an armed security detail with me. It was like living in a four-star gaol. I was rocketed, I was bombed, I lost five colleagues in a kidnapping. Four of them never came back.
And everyday I had to solve problems that no one had ever seen and come up with solutions that worked.
Most of the challenges I faced at work in Iraq were not things that I had ever had to deal with before. No one had.
We had to figure out how to deliver billions of dollars in programs, support and advice to businesses and government when there was no electricity, no landline and often no ability for us to physically meet the people we were supposed to be helping. Back then, Zoom and Facetime didn’t even exist. It was tough.
I understand that what many of you are going through right now is one of the most uncertain and stressful situations you’ve ever faced.
I want to reassure you. You will come through this. And you’ll do a lot better if you stay calm, you stay positive, and take bold, decisive action. This is not the time to let Covid-19 derail your business. Even if you’re in a sector that has been shut down, now is the time to focus forward.
My team and I have been looking for ways that we can make a real impact and help businesses who have taken a hit to survive and thrive during the crisis. And we’ve come up with something that we believe will deliver real, immediate value to any business that needs help right now.
You can book a session with me or one of our advisors whenever you need help with challenges you’re facing. Whether it’s around mindset, surviving lockdown, working remotely, managing cashflow, boosting sales, keeping your team motivated and momentum flowing, we’ve got you covered.
Because we know this crisis may last for a while, we’re making our time available for the next year.
We usually charge between $42,000 and $120,000 to work with business owners 1:1 over the course of a year, but because these are extraordinary times, they call for an extraordinary response.
You'll get an email from me with a link to my calendar so we can have our first Zoom session.
Your first session is 30 minutes to make sure the package is right for you. We’ll come up with a custom plan to help you ensure your business survives and thrives during the lockdown. And if, on that first call, either of us feels it's not a perfect fit, I'll refund your money right away - no risk!
At the end of our call, and each call thereafter, we'll agree on "action steps" that will move you forward and keep you accountable. After each call, I'll send you a recording of the call, confirmation of your action steps, and a link to schedule your next call.
Once your action steps are complete, you can schedule your next 15-minute call. For example, have your session on a Wednesday, do your action steps right after the call, and you can schedule your next call that very same day. Truly unlimited support!
