Episode Ten: Surviving Covid-19, Why Businesses Fail, and Using this time Wisely
There's an elephant in the room that's hard to address - this pandemic has taken lives, jobs, and shut the doors of businesses - many of which won't open again. In this episode we discuss some of the reasons why startups/new businesses often fail (besides pandemics), some things to work on, and getting through it together. We have not by any means figured all of this out but we know that by working collaboratively within our own team, our clients, and our community that we can build a company that thrives and helps others to do the same.
