Title: How to Love your Business and Reconnect in your Daily Grind

Forbes recently shared the results from The Capital One Business Survey of U.S. small business owners (total annual revenues less than $20 million) surveyed November 17-21, 2021:

  • 42% of small business owners, and 62% of minority business owners, have reported recently experiencing burnout.
  • The SBA reports that 81% of small businesses have no employees.

Burnout affects mental well-being, physical health, and work-life balance, not to mention your productivity and business profitability. Whether you have employees or not, it’s easy to get stuck in the daily grind and lose your passion for your business. How can you snap out of it so your business can grow? We’ll share various marketing strategies to reconnect you with your business, help you work on your business, and remember the importance of the daily grind.

3 Takeaways:

  1. How to face obstacles that are draining your energy
  2. A framework to create purpose-driven marketing strategies
  3. How to reconnect and stay connected to your business
