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 25, from May 1, I'm feeling better than yesterday because I slept right through my alarm this morning! I'm getting a bit frustrated that I haven't been able to make more progress on the company's goals in Q2, but I resolve to keep moving forward, never giving up. I don't know if this is true, but someone told me once that the Samurai Warriors only wore armor on the front of their bodies because retreat was simply not an option. I'm adopting the Samurai mentality - always moving forward despite any obstacle, bump in the road, hiccup, or challenge we may run into.
