The strength of an organization is not in how they perform when things are going well but how they perform when things are not going well. I don’t have to tell you that we’re in the part of things not going so well, you know that. As board members, and as people who are dedicated to the success of downtown, we are all in a little bit of a panic and we understand that. Most of us are trying multiple methods to keep businesses afloat.
But I do want to encourage you, we’re here to help. At this point we’re all becoming experts in what’s working and what’s not working for our business. I think it would behoove everyone if you could just share with us what’s working for you and whats not. Where you’re finding success, what’s bringing you hope or income or value? What your strategy is for when we’re given the a-okay to reopen again? Then we can share it with the full group, helping each other further develop our action plans.
Sending a check-in email once a week or so could take about 5-10 minutes, but may end up coming back to you with ideas from what other businesses are doing, or could help your neighbor pay their rent. To me 5 min is worth it, hopefully it’s worth it to you too.
