A recent broad-ranging interview of prominent Bondi entrepreneur Rebecca Veksler in Sporteluxe, How Rebecca Veksler Created A Sustainable Glassware Empire, delves into the story behind her success and in particular how she has dealt with the impact of the pandemic.
Although the team isn’t working from office space at this moment, we haven’t lost momentum or connection, we still hold weekly WIFLE sessions (What I Feel Like Expressing). Catch up as much as we can, keeping social distancing rules and speak 24/7 via all the technologies. I have an incredible team of women working in the SoL Business. There is nothing that can stop us from keeping motivated and positive!
Most business owners know that running your own business is basically a game of Russian Roulette, you never know what can happen at any moment, which is why it’s so important to have a solution based mindset and to learn to turn stress into the positive challenge, or growth. It is very important to be able to adapt and innovate in each moment. You need to find the balance between, planning and being able to improvise as required. So my advice is to really focus on your own mental health, your own personal development, and if you are being forced to have some quiet time in your business, use it to fix all the problems you never have time for.
Fix the system processes, logistics, marketing plans, business plans. Fix it all! Take a big focus on business development and personal development. This ensures you and your business are COVID-19 proof, as they say. Sometimes these little pauses are blessings to major developments and even bigger success. That’s what we have been doing at SoL.
