Keeping Your Business Growing During a Pandemic or Times of Personal Struggle with Christa Mastrangelo Joyce

Being an entrepreneur is both a blessing and a curse when something big happens in your personal life that demands your attention.

It’s a blessing because you’re the boss, and you can take the time to tend to things. And it’s a curse, because when you’re not there, business slows way down or even stops.

Now, enter a global pandemic…

Maybe you own a brick and mortar business and are wondering how you can quickly shift your business online and still serve your community.

Christa Mastrangelo Joyce has been there, and today she’s sharing her story with us. Christa is a yoga teacher and entrepreneur, who successfully pivoted her brick and mortar businesses to online within 24 hours.

In this episode, Christa explores the scariest part of transitioning her business during the pandemic and what it brought up for her. Christa also shares the biggest gift she received from the transition.

We talk about tips or lessons for women entrepreneurs who are worried about being in business right now, or who are also pivoting from a brick and mortar business to a virtual space, and are experiencing anxiety.
