What it Means to Show Up Long Game Style

THE LONG GAME Episode 2 Showing Up with Sandra Scaiano

Showing up. What does that mean to you? Today I’m breaking it down. This was recorded during the Coronavirus stay-at-home period. Showing up has never been more important.

Showing up emotionally.

Owning a small business is all about community. Showing up and connecting helps all of us. Facebook groups are just one way to be part of (or lead) a community.

You don’t have to know everything. Hold the space for your audience, they’ll know that you really understand and truly care. I outline 3 additional ways you can show up.

Showing up physically.

I know we can’t go to big events right now, but letting people see you matters. When it was possible, I went to an event to support someone in my community. I wanted her to know I was there for her.

Networking has always been important and that’s not changing. We may meet new people differently for a while but it will always make an impact. There’s an energy to connecting at an event or heading out to a special place for inspiration.

Don’t tell me where your priorities are. Show me where you spend your money and I’ll tell you what they are. 

James W. Frick

Showing up mentally.

Being present. In the here and now. I break down on how I show up in my business and I consider this the fun part! Being all in makes a huge impact. You can borrow this strategy for yourself.

Doing my work is a big part of showing up. I’m on my own and it matters. How do you show up? Will your clients know that you’ve shown up? How are you showing up right now?

I’ve got 13 ideas that you can borrow. Here are a few to get you started:

  • Offer a digital product that supports physical sales
  • Bring the product to your clients
  • Repackage your products into kits that give people something fun to do
  • Doing good by doing work or donating to a favorite charity
  • Create your own group on Facebook
  • Offer a webinar or a series teaching something valuable for your audience
  • Repurpose, repackage to reach more people

What I’m Loving Right Now:

We’re all cooking more these days and it is fun to get the kids involved. Our new favorite thing: Waffle Tots! Delicious and fun.
