No matter what side of the COVID-19 debate you fall on politically, it is essential to remember that we are in this thing together. We’re all bound by these ever-changing government mandates, social interaction expectations, and telecommuting requirements for our work.
You may have had to switch careers or adapt to new job responsibilities in the past few months. The uncertainty of unemployment compensation increases, stimulus funding, and vaccine research are enough to place lots of stress and grief on us all.
Hopefully, this update finds you and your family safe and well. We’re following the current set of best practices, ensuring that everyone limits their exposure while networking while continuing our Zoom meetings.
What Can You Expect for the Future?
With news that reinfections are occurring with COVID-19, we need to develop short- and long-term plans to adapt to changing circumstances. We don’t want to be caught off-guard should governments decide to shut down businesses again to prevent a second wave of the coronavirus.
That means members are working with each other to create community supports that meet our basic needs during times of trouble. We’re a resilient people, coming together each year to fight the battles that uncertain economics can provide.
Even when our economy was booming, some business owners were getting left behind. Our goal is to ensure that it doesn’t happen in the future with our ongoing meetings.
How Can We Help?
Although we live in a modern technological era, the way we approach business opportunities is firmly rooted in traditional relationships. You might send an email confirmation instead of shaking on an agreement, but the principle remains the same.
As a business owner, your word is your bond. When you build relationships with other companies and new customers, that foundation is what gets you through the difficult times that come.
Every business faces challenges that threaten to eliminate opportunities. Our active association brings people together from all stages of life and their career to provide mentoring, consulting, and referrals.
When we are together, this shared stage allows all of us to grow and prosper. It’s the very definition of the phrase, “A rising tide lifts all boats.”
