Life on the Edge: An Entrepreneur’s Story of Survival during COVID-19
Life on the Edge is my story about surviving COVID-19 as an entrepreneur and small business owner outside of Philadelphia. I started documenting the happenings of each day about two weeks into lockdown so that when I look back on this time I will be able to remember it for exactly what it is.
My goal with Life on the Edge is to provide an inside look into a small business struggling to survive, my first major crisis as a leader, and ultimately the process of saving a small company during a global disaster. I hope that by sharing my experience I might help other entrepreneurs and business owners during this time.
In Episode 15, I discuss the challenge of being a leader both at home and at work during the pandemic and just how stressful that can be. Just as our business lives have been thrown into complete chaos, so have our home lives; we've been forced to make changes to the way we operate at home in order to stay safe and prevent the spread of the disease. These changes take us out of our routines, which throws me off, and I get stressed out when one of the balls drops.
And just like that, everything turns around when some good news comes in...check it out!
