As the holiday season quickly falls upon us, our typical routines can often be disrupted by unexpected emergencies, additional stressors, and curveballs in the form of unannounced house guests or sudden bouts of illness. On today’s episode, Matt and Garrett discuss how these challenges can affect our professional and personal lives alike, and what we can do to keep our businesses on track through these inevitable ups and downs.
Our hosts acknowledge the importance of communicating with your loved ones about what you do and how it affects your business, setting clear boundaries around your work, and why we should always expect the unexpected. They caution against taking an all-or-nothing approach to your business, share why planning ahead is so critical to success, and encourage listeners to embrace the fact that life happens – both the good and the bad. When we can adapt and lean into the unpredictable nature of this industry, we can deal with disruptions efficiently, leaving more time to enjoy life’s other joys wholeheartedly. Today’s incredible episode shows us that with the right mindset and plan, not only can we navigate through any storm that life throws our way, but we can also thrive during it.

“Prepare yourself for these moments by doing all the things that are keeping your business running, so that when the unexpected happens, you’re prepared to solve, resolve, or amplify.”
“You can change your energy around that as life is happening.”
“Lean into it, knowing that with the right mindset and plan, you can navigate any storm that life throws your way.”
“You need to have a plan. When this stuff happens, what do we do? Because I don’t think shutting it off is the answer, and usually shutting it off means we never had a plan to begin with.”
“If we have good and clear communication, we can manage expectations.”
“The minute you accept it, the minute you start moving forward and being able to solve, resolve, or amplify – sometimes it could be a really good life thing that shows up.”
