Sally “Sabrina you’ve been building your MadeComfy business into a global empire since 2015, I’m sure you’ve come across many challenges upon your entrepreneurial journey! Would you mind sharing your top 3 tips with us as to how you embrace challenges?”
1. Keep composure and stay calm
"When you are facing challenges, it is crucial to keep centered, calm and in control.
Being calm will allow you to have the clarity you need to make the best quality decisions and to build confidence around your stakeholders.
Doing meditation has helped me to sleep, keep calm and focused when I am facing challenges, I think in those moments our minds need to be sharp."
2. Identify what the best possible outcome is and what steps you need to take to get there
"I identify the best result; I keep my focus on following the actions to get there, having a positive mindset, and I put all my energy into making this happen."
3. Identify what the worst-case scenario is and what actions you can take to mitigate risk
"I am in the process of mapping out the possible alternatives; I also take into account what is the worst-case scenario and what are the actions that need to be taken at some point if this eventuates to lower the cost of failure.
It is crucial to be positive and avoid negativity, and it is essential to consider different scenarios to be prepared."
