Beate Chelette in Starting to Know Podcast

In this episode with Ishu Singh, Beate shared how leadership skills can help you bring more impact to your business. Listen to the episode here.

Are you going to let 2020 turn your story into a tragedy? Or are you ready to reclaim the narrative?

The way I see it, there are two ways to look at life: as a victim under a pile of bad results… or as an opportunist, ready to channel adversity into possibility. If you’re reading this, then I suspect you’re the latter…maybe you just need a reminder.

Covid-19 has been here for much longer than we anticipated, and many of us are stuck not knowing what’s going to happen with our businesses. Through years of experience – and surviving 7 disasters in my career – I’ve learned that there is a cadence to businesses recovery during a crisis.

When something dire happens – whether it’s a fire, flood, earthquake, tsunami, terrorist attack, or the economic depression that often follows disasters – everything stops working as it should and all hell breaks loose temporarily. Businesses adapt or they fail, and we all adjust to the new normal.

However, Covid-19 has thrust us all into a prolonged sort of purgatory… At first, a few weeks of SIP was a novel break. Then, the government cut checks and it made us all worry a little less for a little while. Some even made more money on unemployment than they did with full-time jobs.

Now, it’s past the 9-month mark and we’ve all gotten a little complacent. Here’s my advice, based on surviving 7 disasters:

If you’re still waiting for the world to go back to normal, then you are going to fail. Consider this a very serious wakeup call and start making changes NOW.

It’s easy to entertain the thought that this happened to you undeservedly. You’ve done nothing wrong – so the government should fix it for you!

However, considering the state our government is currently in, that is hardly a strategy I would recommend…

Rather, I want you to ask yourself some questions right now:

  • Is what I’m doing working?
  • Do I feel stuck in a loop?
  • Will my business succeed if things continue as they are?

Chances are good you may not like your answers, and you would not be alone. The reality for many business owners and leaders is sobering! But things are what they are… and we must come to terms with the world we are living in.

I know it sounds difficult, the less you focus on what matters right now, the faster and harder you are driving into no man’s land – and it only gets worse in that direction… Trust me. This is my 8th disaster. The solution is to take a step back and examine the weak points of your life, business, or career.


Lucky for you, I offer a complimentary program with your Inevitable Recovery in mind – you can sign up right here.

Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Identify what’s wrong.
  2. Identify what you want.
  3. Kickstart your momentum and commitment.
  4. Find the opportunity.
  5. Reclaim your urgency.

The Inevitable Recovery is my tried and trusted method for building business resilience, and it’s based on my experience with recovery during a crisis. If you haven’t signed up yet – then go do so now.

If you already have completed the free portion, I encourage you to sign up for the Intentional Implementer to help you CREATE A FORWARD MOMENTUM.

Every single person has blind spots, attachments, and stories we tell ourselves – myself included! I bet you have wondered many times why your competitors are killing it when they’re not even as good as you! What are they doing differently?

I’ll tell you what it is: It’s the clarity of their goal and the relentless pursuit of it. If your old story, your old programming keeps popping up telling you to stop – and it ALWAYS does – you simply cannot get ahead.

This is the reason I created the Intentional Implementer. It is the type of Accountability Mastermind that will keep you tapped into your urgency, commitment, and momentum every single week.

I’m sure a number of reasons you can’t commit just sprang into your mind:  it’s going to be too much, it’s not the right time, you’re too busy…but, the truth is, you make time for what matters. Your results demonstrate where you are and how well you are doing.

I am not judging – I am here to help you if you want to break this cycle.

One of the Intentional Implementer members, Douglas Hill, sent me a card telling me he took my advice (begrudgingly and way too late) and yet he still managed to make twenty sales.

This can be you too. But only if you commit to yourself. Not to me. Not the group.

You must commit to breaking the cycle of up and down – the hoping for the calls to come in, the open rates to get better, for social media to finally show some fruits of your hard labor.

In your heart of hearts though… you know it is you. It’s how you think about it that got you here, how you plan for your business, the accumulation of perceived mistakes and setbacks.

And it’s time for you to break this cycle with The Intentional Implementer.

Rather than another “get in, get out and be done” program, this is a weekly dose of positive reinforcement designed to keep you focused and help you make incremental changes.

We will cover a wide range of topics, including:

  • How am I changing what’s on my website?
  • How am I going to talk to people again?
  • How do I pick up the phone again?
  • How do I show up strong?
  • How do I have a smile on my face?
  • How do I believe I have what people offer right now?
  • How do I make a positive contribution?
  • Where do I start with business development?
  • What’s a good LinkedIn Strategy and what exactly should I say to people when I reach out?

This is going to help you get out of that cycle of bad results. It will make you show up for yourself and your clients, feel empowered rather than helpless, and make an impact.

You will also have access to the Intentional Implementer VAULT which is the perfect DIY Disaster-Proofing option for those of you who prefer to work at your own pace. The Vault includes every single episode that we have covered in the Intentional Implementer. Momentum, drive, and success are all there for you – you just have to commit to making a change.

Only if your pain of staying where you are is greater than the fear of changing will you succeed. You MUST be clear in your heart and your mind that you simply cannot continue like this. If you’re ready, then sign up today and find out in 20-minute bite-size episodes:

  • How do you write emails?
  • What email headlines are opening?
  • How do you stay in a positive mindset?
  • How do you utilize social media to grow your business?
  • How do you do proper outreach?
  • How do you fill your pipeline?
  • How do you get in, you know again that mindset to really move forward and persuade people that you are the right choice?

Don’t let Covid-19 and 2020 kill your business for good. Don’t go without a fight. This is your opportunity to make a meaningful change in your life and business.

My goal is not to convince you, but to share what I know and to give you all the learnings I gleaned from making it through disaster after disaster – all by myself as a single mom and immigrant. I went from $135,000 in debt to becoming a self-made millionaire.

You can do it too – the difference is you don’t need to do it alone. I am here for you. The information is here for you. You can have it. I am cheering you on no matter what. But you have to say yes to yourself.
