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 30, I close out the week feeling really good about the progress we've made so far on our priorities for this quarter. These priorities, or goals, are what I believe is keeping us focused and maintaining a positive attitude. Our own mental outlook just may be the determining factor in whether we survive this crisis, and assuming we do, whether we limp back to life or take off like a bat out of hell. It is my job, as the leader, to make sure that company survives and thrives in a post-pandemic world, so I will do whatever it takes to keep my team positive, upbeat, and energized.
