August 12 at #KBtribechat – Retrain your Brain!

Hosted by Irene Williams.

Anybody feel like this year is one long Groundhog Day experiment?

There’s no denying we’re facing uniquely challenging times. No one is exempt from the unexpected circumstances of this year. It’s one for the books, and most of us are probably ready for these books to be closed forever, please-and-thank-you!

When we originally scheduled this KBTribeChat session on “How to Retrain Your Brain,” we had no idea what would the days ahead would hold. Back then, we knew that busy kitchen & bath designers and biz people would benefit from a chat about how mindset strategies can positively impact both professional and personal lives. Now, the topic seems more relevant than ever!

For this chat, we’re going to get into some ‘real talk.’ We’ll trade notes on how we’re doing and what perspectives we have as this year progresses. And we’ll share practical ways to “mind our brains” on an ongoing basis, so that we can be more resilient and able to move forward—even when the unexpected occurs.

Irene Williams will be on hand to guide the discussion. After more than a decade as an independent business owner working with brands in our industry, Irene realized the most valuable lessons gained in entrepreneurship related to core life skills and mindset that translate to all areas of life. She’s created online courses to help others learn the same things, as well.

The goal of this chat is to not only empathize with each other professionally and personally, but also to crowd-source real-life insights and ideas to grow, learn, and improve through it all—even the unexpected.

Our KBtribechat Questions:

Q1.
How’re you faring? Share where you’re at personally, professionally—the good and not-so-good.

Q2.
What do you wish you’d had in place/already conquered prior to the surprise of 2020? (i.e. – better organization, an established workout routine, more web-based biz solutions, etc.)

Q3.
What pivots/changes have you made this year? Any new biz strategies, mindset shifts, reprioritizing?

Q4.
Still working from home? Offer your tips for being productive, staying connected.

Q5.
What are your best lessons learned or skills acquired this year? What will you carry with you into the future?
