Will Your Business Be Ready After COVID-19?

by Steve Houston               

With everything that's going on around us, it's easy to feel a bit fearful, and perhaps rightfully so. Lives have been turned upside down almost overnight by something we can't even see, people are dying, and the uncertainties of both today and tomorrow just add more fuel to our uneasiness.

It helps to remember, though, that we've been through trials like this before. Each one tested our resolve in painful ways, yet we've always emerged on the other side and gone on to become even stronger than ever.

Strangely enough, though, this particular foe has actually given many of us a very valuable gift - the gift of time.

Time to be with our families. Time to take a break from the daily grind. Time to heal, and time to pray. Time to reflect, to catch our collective breath, to better appreciate what we have today. Time to plan for tomorrow.

Because, yes, tomorrow IS coming. It's anyone's guess when and how the recovery begins, but I think it's safe to say it WILL happen, probably in fits and starts across many different business and geographic sectors, and then steadily picking up steam as the economy gets back on track.

Will your business be ready to get back into the game when it's time?

What should you be doing today to prepare it for that eventuality?

Business owners who take advantage of this time to make adjustments and invest in their companies will have a huge head start when things eventually start settling down into our new normal.

Since I'm a "glass half full" kind of person, I see this as an opportunity for each of us to turn this crisis into our own personal and professional renewal.

I hope you do too.

Stay healthy, stay positive - and get ready.

PS.  I enjoy a good rousing speech as much as anyone, so I'll leave you with 2 of my favorites from popular movies you may remember:
