1) The faster you pivot, the faster you’ll succeed

This pandemic will change a lot of industries. The first one? Your local store (restaurant, fashion etc). Why? First, some of these businesses weren’t profitable in the first place. And they’ll end up closing. Second, some of the landlords aren’t deferring or forgiving their tenants rent (key lesson? Always have cash on hand. And try to save up more than six months rent) And third, the inability to pivot to an online store (eg: bars changing into grocery delivery services).

Take notes when you read this article. Think about your situation. Do you have  the ability to pivot or change?

From the grocery clerk and cashier, trucker delivering your food, warehouse team making sure your package is on it’s way to you all the way to the doctors and nurses):
