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 24 of Life on the Edge, recorded on April 30, 2020, I'm completely wiped out from working so hard this week. I'm up before 5am each day, and working until 9 or 10 at night is taking it out of me. It's simply not possible to maintain that kind of pace, as there's just not enough recovery time. This level of exhaustion makes it difficult to stay focused, as well as makes it hard to stay level headed and even keeled. Obviously, this is a unique time we are in, and I know this is only temporary, but man I'm looking forward to the weekend!
