In today’s environment, it’s imperative that we focus our thoughts and efforts when it comes to running a business. With the pandemic changing business operations almost weekly, it’s beyond hard to keep every day routines and procedures running smoothly.
When it comes to how many small businesses have failed during the pandemic, no one is sure because the data is scarce. However, the data that is available is concerning. According to Yelp, out of the 80,000 small companies KNOWN to have permanently closed from March through July, the majority of them were local.
As concerning as that is, 64% of small businesses polled by CNBC say they COULD survive another year under current conditions.
That is why we must buckle down and focus. We don’t want your business to be a part of a negative statistic from this pandemic. We want you to rise above this mayhem. To help inspire successful energy we’ve found a few quotes to dive you:
