It’s no secret that the past few weeks have been challenging for all of us. While making major structural, financial, and cultural changes in each of your businesses, you’re defining a “new normal” every single day.
But let’s be real; Quarantining is boring.
It’s hard to adapt from a fast-paced business concept to readjusting to this “new normal.” Still, it’s inspiring to see how various businesses and industries are evolving through this crisis.
So here is a challenge for you: How can you be creative in the coming weeks with your business practices? Some of you will make some major adjustments. You may have to take chances and try things that you never thought you would do. Some of you may have to rethink what your business can provide online.
Or - you may have to start selling off your toilet paper and hand sanitizer stash!
Maybe staying at home will push you out of your comfort zone.

That’s what pivoting is all about.
Listen, I know marketing doesn’t sleep. So, as we enter another week of social distancing, I wanted to take a moment to reassure you that I’m committed to promoting and supporting our local businesses.
I want to share a few communication updates with you that will hopefully make our work together go even smoother:
Please send all updates, requests, and questions to firstname.lastname@example.org. So we can continue to make updates regularly in a timely manner.
Online Meetings can still be scheduled via conference call or virtual meetings to discuss and review any updates and changes with your business.
Certain advertisements, especially Facebook, are not guaranteed approval due to the COVID-19 restrictions. So ads may take 3-4 days before they’re approved.
With negatives associated with COVID-19, there’s still a silver lining for business owners: it’s forcing every one of us to think outside the box. Who knows? Maybe the changes will be temporary and, in a few months, you’ll be back to business as usual.
Or maybe you’ll find a new, better way of doing things that will change your business forever.
Let’s continue to support each other because we are in this together!
