Three months ago – like many of you that I know, the bottom dropped out of my world when COVID 19 hit! Cancellations came pouring in overnight and I felt like I was staring down the barrel of a shotgun. There seemed no obvious solution – certainly not an immediate one.
My initial response was to fall apart in a puddle filled with tears of self-pity. But everyone was so consumed with their own pain and shock – that my sad place just became sad AND lonely.
Then that age-old survivor instinct kicked in. With a family to support, bills to pay, a business to run and a mortgage to service – I got up to fight one day at a time.
I did not give myself time to think, plan or analyse – just simply to DO. I had invested everything I have in this business that I wholeheartedly believe in. (I have nearly lost it twice. Once due to illness and once due to plain bad luck.) I was not about to go down this path again. My goal was to continue the high energy, high impact and highly interactive training that my clients love. I just had to find a new way to do it. And so, I did.
And here it is. My Virtual Leadership Learning Series
You can find it HERE https://jacquiperkins.com.au/leadership/
It is a combination of entertaining, engaging videos, supported with coaching worksheets, resources and tools – which allows you to work at your own pace, in your own space.
I would love you to share this series with anyone in your personal or professional network that you believe will benefit from it AND if your feel you need a little more support – there is a “HELP ME JACQUI” button on the website – which will flick me an email – to arrange some customised coaching.
And like all good stories – there is usually a happy ending. I am glad to say I am not going to disappoint. While I was busy “DOING” and not “DWELLING” – momentum kicked in and the work has literally been pouring in. I am grateful to God for his mercy he has shown me and the spirit of perseverance that my parents have blessed me with. And I cannot leave out the MOTH – Man of the House – George – who has tirelessly kept the wheels in motion so that I could dedicate myself to this next challenge in our lives.
