We certainly find ourselves in an interesting time of uncertainty – collectively as a country and world. 

None of us predicted this, and none of us have experienced anything like it, but we get to choose how we’re going to react and respond as entrepreneurs to it all.

While we can’t control what’s going on around us, we can control the thinking that’s going to create our future.

As I’ve been thinking about what we need as entrepreneurs through this time and season, one anchoring thought kept coming to me: RISE Together

In today’s episode of the Epic Success Podcast, I’m sharing Part 1 of a series from the Rise Together Panel -Top Online Entrepreneurs Speak Out virtual event that I hosted last week. Nine incredible 7-figure entrepreneurs grounded in their faith shared what they are doing in their businesses, lives, and families to RISE above the current circumstances and thrive.

This week on Part 1 of the series, you will hear from: Jennifer Allwood, Rachel McMichael, and myself.  Each of us breaks down what’s working, what’s not, and how we are pivoting. 

We are in this together. We will RISE together. Grab your pen and paper –  here’s Part 1!

The biggest take-aways from today’s episode are:

  • “In this moment, you and I get to step into the biggest and best versions of ourselves.” Dr. Shannon Irvine

You get to use this time to actively choose the thoughts that create the success that you want instead of the fear that is actually present in our hearts and minds right now. I really want to encourage you to lean in hard to the best version of you and use this time to become that. Listen in as I give actionable steps for you to take today to rise, pivot, and start. [10:08]

  • “In terms of the entrepreneurs that I serve, I’m really encouraging them to pivot where they can.” Jennifer Allwood

Jennifer Allwood shared very honestly and vulnerably how this pandemic has impacted her personally in her home. In business she has pivoted her live event and book tour to be virtual and create connections in a creative way. She encourages us all to shift and serve. [32:23]

  • “This is an opportunity if we will take it as one.” Rachel McMichael

Rachel McMichael is reassessing the pillars of her life: business, family, health, and faith through the lens of stewardship not scarcity. She gives so many practical, actionable steps you can take to audit your life and business then establish processes and systems to help you through this season of change. [38:34]

Rise. Pivot. Start.
