Make plans

Stop comparing

McInnes advises resisting the urge to compare how you or your business has coped throughout the pandemic to how others have. Everyone’s experience of a crisis is different, and we all overcome struggles in our own way.

Practice self-care

According to McInnes, the time for self-care is right now. He advises that no matter what responsibilities you are trying to juggle amidst the pandemic, taking time to put your mental health first will always be time well spent.

Adapt

McInnes shares that the ability to adapt to any situation is a priceless tool for an entrepreneur to have. He says that learning to adapt amidst the chaos of the pandemic will only aid you in the future.

Retrain

McInnes isn’t suggesting leaving your current profession to retrain in a new one. He advises using the extra downtime the pandemic has created to build up your skills in a practice that can complement your profession.

The pandemic has created many obstacles, but Jesse McInnes believes that there are silver linings that can lead to finding success amidst the pandemic.
