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 31, from May 11, I talk about the things I'm excited for in the week ahead. I'm keeping my team focused and engaged despite disappointing news from Governor Wolf (PA) extending the stay-at-home order. Life as we know will continue for at least another month, but that is outside of our control, and we must put our time, attention, and energy on the things we can control - those things that are right in front of us. That is the mindset we must maintain in order to come out of this pandemic positioned for success.
