A Trying Time for Business Families
Second, find ways to support these businesses in whichever way you can. If you’re financially able, support temporarily closed businesses by buying gift cards, which puts money directly in the business’s pocket during a time when they may be trying to survive with zero revenue. If your favorite restaurant is closed, see if they’ll accept reservations for down the road when they anticipate to be open again--this commitment might just be the “light at the end of the tunnel” they need to maintain hope! And of course, share info with your friends and family about what can be done to support their favorite businesses.
Lastly, if you’re a business owner or are part of a family business, consider using this time to reinvest in what makes your business succeed. Use the extra time you have to determine ways to improve your leadership, best practices, and plan for life post-Covid-19. Make time to connect with your community, and support others in whatever capacity you are able. Remember: We are all in this together.
