Like so many others across the world, I have felt the pinch of lockdown and the general uncertainty surrounding COVID-19. My day job is working
Over the last few weeks, business during Coronavirus has become a bit of a balancing act. Bring enough customers in – but not too many. Be flexible about methods of payment – but cash is risky. Network with as many people as you can – but maybe keep it online.
Many of us are feeling uncertain about where to go with our businesses now; with questions about impending local lockdowns on everybody’s mind, it is difficult to know how to prepare for the next few months. Even the basics are thrown into question… How do we navigate holiday time with employees, and what are our rights as employers? (Rachel Collins – Page 35). And should we be future-proofing our businesses (SWIG – Page 25 ) in case of another national lockdown?
But equally, none of us are alone in this. And that’s why it is so important to keep sharing our stories, our learned experience, and our resilience, and to learn from others who have already made these difficult decisions.
