“The decline you may be experiencing right now in your business has nothing to do with your skillset… it’s not that people don’t see the value in what you offer.”

- CJ


Times are tough… but you are tougher! 2022 has brought us new levels of inflation and some very difficult decisions to make. But even as business may be slowing at this time, you have to power to make changes, pivot, or push your way through the tough times. You are RESILIENT — after all, you made it through 2020.


The changes in the economy may have led you to lose some clients (I’ll be honest here, this has happened to me too) and you may be starting to feel discouraged. But the state of the economy doesn’t reflect your worth. Your skillset is every bit as valuable as it was before, you just need to take a step back, reevaluate, and make some shifts to the way you run your business.


In this episode, I share not only the four questions you NEED to ask yourself whenever your business begins to slow down, but I share my OWN struggles with the challenges of 2022.


In this episode of The Shine to FIVE™ Method with CJ, you’ll discover: 

  • How to figure out whether you’ve placed yourself and your side-biz in a box — and how to get back out of it
  • What you need to work out in order to pivot in a way that keeps your side-biz RELEVANT 
  • How to expand your business and create new revenue streams during slow periods
