  • Communicate changes in work schedules to your customers, employees and business partners like suppliers.  Consider  opening a bit earlier and closing sooner to allow both customers and employees to have more time to get home, and if you do, make sure you get that message out across various channels Call some of your main customers, or communicate through WhatsApp or social media.  
  • Tap into delivery services for your products. Your customers may not get time to visit your shop since they are also busy managing work, family and household needs, and  looking our for their health. Provide an option of delivering your products to their workplaces or homes where it is safe to do so.  
  • If you can, think about having employees come in to work in shifts. Have all or some of them work from home and support them to adjust to their new working environment. Consider providing them with work tools such as internet to facilitate their work and also communication. 
  • Get active on social media. People are spending more time on the internet than ever, so there is a growing opportunity to reach new and existing customers through this channel. Here are a few tips to kick start your social media marketing

Has it been tough to separate work and home life since the start of the pandemic? Here are tips for small business owners to create healthy boundaries.

 

Since the pandemic started, small businesses have dealt with ongoing disruptions in business activities caused by lockdowns and other preventative measures. For many, operations have gone virtual, which can lead to being online 24/7. These changes have made it hard for many business owners to set boundaries between work and personal life, which is key to a successful business and a sense of well-being.  

Here are a few tips to help you set healthy boundaries, which can help keep you energized, motivated, and productive.  

  • If you are working from a shop or other location, take time to reflect on your way to and from your business. Many business owners have begun walking to and from home to avoid transportation issues and crowding. Use this time well by asking yourself what went well for the day, thinking about any challenges you faced and how you responded to them and planning something to look forward to. This quick reflection can help you stay on top of your business activities, maintain a positive mindset, and avoid worrying about work when you are home.  
  • If you are working from home, set office hours—schedule breaks for meals and a quick break from your computer or phone. Stretch or take a short walk once every hour or two. These steps can make you less vulnerable to distractions, eliminating wasted time. Exercise and regular meals are also important to a productive mindset.  
  • Home offices have become inevitable for many, and unfortunately, can lead to feeling like work is taking over your home. To avoid this, create a designated space in your home to work. A small table or desk in a specific spot used just for work can create this sense of physical distance, making it easier to return to your personal life when the work day is done. It will also send a signal to your family that you are working and minimize the likelihood that you are disrupted. 

While none of these tips will solve the challenges of achieving a good work-life balance on their own, they are a strong place to start. Let us know how they work for you via this email musakacheche@consumercentrix.ch.

Experiencing stress? Try this quick breathing exercise!

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought challenges in all aspects of our lives. As a small business owner, you may be used to the stress and uncertainty that come from running an enterprise. The pandemic has added new challenges to this, and many of us are feeling the effects.

At the SME Response Clinic, we are offering a few tools for dealing with stress and uncertainty. The first is a short exercise that may help – less than five minutes, it is free, can be done anywhere, and does not require any special tools or know-how.

The short exercise involves focusing on your breath, which is a proven way to lower stress in the body. Below is a simple guide:

  • Find a comfortable place to lie or sit down. Gently close your eyes and take two or three deep breaths. Breathe in through the nose and out through the mouth.
  • Allow the breath to return to its natural rhythm and feel the body’s weight press down where you are sitting or laying down.
  • Notice how the body feels. Starting at the top of the head, think about how your body feels from head to toe. Do you feel peaceful? Are you moving around a lot? Are you comfortable? Are you uncomfortable?
  • As you breathe in and out, allow thoughts to come and go. If you become distracted by a thought, return the attention to how your body feels.
  • After a few minutes, slowly open the eyes again.

It may seem simple, but breathing exercises like these are known to help in challenging times. They can give you a short break from your sense of stress or feelings of uncertainty, which can in turn help you to think more clearly and make better decisions for yourself, your family, and your business.

Building resilience for your small business through challenging times

As Rwanda faces an uptick in COVID-19 infections and the government mandates new measures aimed at preventing a third wave, the SME Response Clinic wants to take a moment to recognize the challenges you face as a small business owner. Entrepreneurs like you have come so far in navigating the unchartered waters of a truly unprecedented health and economic crisis, but new developments indicate that there is further yet to go.

Micro-, small- and medium-enterprises (MSMEs) make up 97% of businesses in the country, contributing to 55% of total GDP and employing over 40% of Rwanda’s population (Microsave Report, 2017). The start and stop of operations for many if not most businesses over the past year and a half has had a tremendous impact on the economy but also importantly on the financial health of individual entrepreneurs like you and, importantly, your families. In addition to and often caused by the significant negative economic impact resulting from the pandemic, we are all struggling with challenges that affect our wellbeing. Increased levels of stress and anxiety make our day-to-day even tougher. Studies of entrepreneurs in Rwanda (as well as globally) undertaken in recent months indicate that business owners are facing high levels of anxiety caused by uncertainty about the future.

This uncertainty is not surprising as you work to navigate new and rapidly evolving regulations, make changes to your business operations to work to stay afloat, and manage relationships with your suppliers and customers remotely rather than face-to-face. You do all of this while working to ensure your families are healthy and safe.

Since our launch in May 2020, the SME Response Clinic has sought to provide you with updates and tips relevant to managing your business through the various challenges that have arisen and continue to arise as a result of the pandemic. Now, we want to offer you the opportunity to also focus on yourself so that you can in turn better manage your business, positively impacting your family, your employees, and your community at large.

Over the next few months, we will be providing simple tools to support you in building business resilience. These will include short videos, articles, and audio recordings that you can use to manage stress and maintain a positive outlook in the months ahead.
