There’s a lot happening in the world right now and this week, I have been talking to so many online business owners like you about how the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic has been affecting your life and your business.
Here in the US, many of our schools and local businesses are closed. We’ve seen shortages of toilet-paper and hand-sanitizer, and the economy has reacted swiftly to the ever-growing uncertainty.
And I’ve heard from so many of you about how this has affected you… from cancelled travel arrangements… to cancelled bookings… to trying to navigate how to work while the kids are home… and keep yourself and your family protected…
Here at McMichael Consulting LLC, we have been taking things very seriously and are shifting things both for our team and our customers.
And I want you to know that I am here for you!
Here’s how we’re supporting our family, our team, and our customers over the next several weeks:
For my family, my team, and our local community:
We are staying home.
While most of our work is done virtually, we do have in-person meetings from time to time. These in-person connections are stopping for the foreseeable future. I have cancelled all travel plans for the next two months, and have purchased enough food (and toilet paper) to keep my family comfortable for a few weeks (without going overboard, as there are so many others who are more susceptible to the virus and who need to stock up so they can go into complete isolation for their safety)
We are also washing our hands frequently and using hand sanitizers in the limited instances we may need to leave the home.
We are also using this extra time while the kids are out of school to connect with them and be present with them, while also working to increase the level of service for our customers and clients in the Business with Impact Society.
I know we can agree that there is no better time to own an online business, and the impact we can make during moments like this can change the world.
So I am going to show up, serve well, and continue to support the economy and give generously to our clients, our church, and our community.
Making the Business with Impact Society more accessible to YOU:
Many of you know that we keep the doors to the Business with Impact Society closed (and only open them a few times a year).
But now more than ever, we want you to have the community and support that you need, so for the next few weeks, we’ve decided to re-open the doors to The Society and make the Society even more accessible for those of you who have questions and need support.
And to make it even more accessible, we’ve created a $7 for 7 day trial offer into The Society — where you’ll get access to everything our members get (including our amazing community, live Q&A calls, and of course our core training) for just $7.
To make this totally risk-free and be in total service to what your business needs, you can choose to cancel within the first 7 days, or continue at our crazy-low (cancel any-time) price of just $39/month.
All of the details about this will be sent out, or you can go to rachelmcmichael.com/society.
Upgrading the Business with Impact Society experience for our existing customers (more support + more collaboration at no extra cost):
For our Business with Impact Society members — for the next 30 days, we will be adding additional Q&A calls – so instead of our twice monthly calls, we will be having a WEEKLY Q&A to offer you the additional support and coaching your business needs.
We are also going to provide additional opportunities for our members to be featured, and will be putting together a list of Society Members and their offerings to share with our audiences.
We already know that women support women, we all thrive — and unity during difficult times is the BEST way to support our fellow online business owners.
Providing you with the BEST resources on what to do in the coming weeks (with a 5-part series this week on The Business with Impact Podcast):
This week, on The Business with Impact Podcast, we’re cancelling our regularly scheduled programming to bring you a five-part series answering your most pressing questions on how to navigate this season in your business, with your family, and with your customers.
I’ll be sharing both what our family and what some of the leading experts in the Online Business world are doing to prepare for the next few weeks.
Each day, we’ll cover a variety of topics related to the COVID-19 in the areas of:
- Online Business
- Your Home & Family
- Your Finances
- Maintaining Your Health
