Well I trust everyone had a nice forced break at home working at 60-70% pace because now is where the real fun starts.
After probably a little more alcohol during the weeks than normal and feeling like you're in the movie groundhog day, it’s no wonder people might feel like they are sleepwalking. Slowly we are starting to wake now and as this unusual event slows we will kick back into doing some business.
However the next month for any business is going to be critical. My questions to you all is, what are you going to do to recoup the lost business and start building your business again from where it was? It's been a strange time and no doubt people have been affected by the virus going around along with some unfortunately losing their lives, but nothing is going to affect this country more than the economy and how long it will take to get back on track.
It's up to the thousands of business owners to start to take stock and think about recovery and growth..Today!
The reason I say it needs to be done ASAP is because the numbers are inverting based on up to date figures and it's only a matter of time before the whole place starts to kick start back to normal life over time albeit with social distancing still in place. Being on the front foot will offer two things. Firstly, you will be ready to service clients before your competition when it all opens again.
Second, you have thought through how you are going to base your recovery and growth. Even if it's not the same business plan you had in January, which is irrelevant going forward. The ‘Now’ is about getting back up and on your feet and being the best you can be.
It's for your business and for this great country that all businesses that can keep going, do keep on going, until we are back to where we were in January. This is the greatest country in the world and the people that drive the economy are the most resilient and tough to get through whatever is thrown at them, those people are all the SME business owners that won't let this push them over, but will only make them hungrier to drive to new heights over time.
