FINDING HOPE: THE PERSONAL PURPOSE PROCESS. Is your business struggling and you don't know what to do next? It is very understandable as we are going through things now that have never happened before. The first thing to know is that things have changed so waiting for things to return to how they were before is not a good strategy. The second thing is that many new opportunities are available as a result of this change - no matter what type of business you have. New opportunities will require changes to your business, but it is more important that ever to keep your business centered on what is most important. This is the WHY - the purpose. And it is key that your business's purpose is aligned with your personal purpose.

Examine the differences from the perspective of an executive, Keith Okano, who led successful pivots for two different organizations, first to combat growing competition, and then during the Great Depression (2007 – 2009). The COVID-19 pandemic then struck and knocked over the entire table sending the game pieces all over the place. If your first reaction was like most, to scramble to pick up the game pieces with the goal of setting them up like they were before – know this is likely not the right plan of action for you and your business. The world is changing and you need to get to where it is going, not where it was.
