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 lock down 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 16, listen in as I plead my case with American Express to do more for small business who are hurting right now. Like many small business owners, I rely on my American Express lines of credit to keep my supply chain open and to help manage cash flow. With revenues down more than 50%, servicing the debt on my Amex has become impossible, and I'm in a tight spot with both Amex and my vendors. Listen in here.
