  • This thing is going to be here for a while; we’re not going to have vibrant economic activity anytime soon. So you have to think long term in terms of preserving your resources.
  • Use the limited resources that you have, in a way that’s economical for you. This will help others and also help your long term survival.

  • Adversity breeds resilience. It’s during these tough times that we have to rise to the challenge to develop our offerings and grow.
  • As a business owner, make sure every day you are working towards capitalizing on the opportunities available and continue to serve your clients.
