Best of 2018: What to Focus on in a Crisis

By Rebecca Plant

Boardrooms and Bedrooms with Rebecca and Edward Plant

Welcome to our FIRST episode for 2019! I hope wherever this finds you in the world, you’re feeling rested, relaxed and ready to absolutely ramp up your results.

Over the next three weeks, I’m going to be revisiting our most popular podcasts from 2018, our first year on air, starting with the show that Ed and I recorded back in September when we spoke about ‘What to Focus on in a Crisis’.

While that might sound like a bit of a downer to kick of the year, I promise you it’s actually one of the best places to start.

This episode made the ‘Best of 2018’ list thanks to an email which I received from Rochelle, who has a business with her husband that generates 7 figures a year and a healthy five-figure profit each month.

When she heard What to Focus on First in a Crisis what she realised how long she and her husband had actually been in a crisis!

Crisis, as defined in the dictionary, is a time of intense difficulty or danger — when you feel unsafe, overwhelmed, or life just feels hard.

Rochelle reached out after listening to the show and we were able to set her on a path that transformed her relationship, team and communication.

For me, that all makes this episode worthy of another run.

So, today you’ll hear about:

  • The tell-tale signs you’re in an ongoing crisis (perhaps without realising).
  • The issues you’ll face in your business if you do not move out of crisis QUICKLY.
  • My own story of overcoming the crisis of a nervous breakdown.
  • The role your kids can play in challenging times.
  • The three things you need to turn toward in times of intense difficulty.

This one is close to home for me, having experienced some challenging periods of really strong emotion — times when I didn’t feel like I could get a breath, or that the world was caving in on me.  I hope if you ever feel at all like this, that you reach out like I did, and like Rochelle did, and get help.

Got questions?

Is there a question you have around how to grow your together business, communicate better, or maybe set things up so they are built for a couple-preneur and not a solo? Whatever it is, reach out through email to us via [email protected] or through the Facebook Group for Couples in Business.
