We talked to Khadijah Adams about Girl Get That Money and the effects of COVID-19.
First of all, how are you and your family doing in these COVID-19 times?
Khadijah Adams: My family and I are doing great and staying positive and prepared. We had a few bumps in the road, with a couple of family members diagnosed with COVID-19. However, they were blessed to have survived it and are back with their families and back at work.
Tell us about you, your career, how you founded Khadijah Adams.
Khadijah Adams: I launched Girl Get That Money, a business empowerment coaching and consultancy company, on May 1, 2020, during the pandemic. I’m happy to have been blessed to be of service to other entrepreneurs by helping them convert from traditional work habits into working from home and creating new work habits to help them thrive during this pandemic.
How does Khadijah Adams innovate?
Khadijah Adams: I have worked from home since 1997, so there was no real changes for me. However, I have been able to help others create their environment at home to allow them to work effectively.
How the coronavirus pandemic affects your business, and how are you coping?
Khadijah Adams: Many of my clients have found themselves in financial stress, and of course, this rolls downhill and affects their entire team. Unfortunately, I fall into that category. So I decided to start working with my clients on a sliding scale and really meeting them where they are; instead of placing their services on hold, I literally lowered their monthly rates in order to accommodate them, so they are able to keep their doors open.
Did you have to make difficult choices, and what are the lessons learned?
Khadijah Adams: As a public speaker, I had to cancel all air travel because my speaking engagements were canceled for the rest of the year. The lesson that I learned is to stay prepared for unforeseen occurrences. It also taught me to get serious about my savings account.
How do you deal with stress and anxiety, how do you project yourself and Khadijah Adams in the future?
Khadijah Adams: During this pandemic, I’ve increased my walks from 3 times a week to once per day, 7 days a week. As it relates to my company, I’m taking this opportunity to prepare my company for success by establishing new relationships with companies and individuals that I can collaborate with once this pandemic has subsided.
Who are your competitors? And how do you plan to stay in the game?
Khadijah Adams: We all have competitors in business. The key to staying in the game is staying in your lane by not comparing yourself to others and finding your own niche that makes you substantially different from the rest.
Your final thoughts?
Khadijah Adams: It’s not what happens to you; it’s how you handle it when it happens. This pandemic is happening, so let’s take this time to get closer to family and friends, read some inspirational books, including the Bible, lose that weight that we’ve been wanting to lose, create a vision board, or write that book you’ve always wanted to write. Take positive steps and fill your days and nights leaning towards your goals. Finally, stay focused and don’t get caught up in all the hype. Understand that this time has been given to us for a reason, take advantage of it by using it for healing and not hurting.
