Small Business Survival

Jan 8, 2021 - PropelBizworks Social

The restrictions we are still seeing on businesses have me saddened. Many have already closed their doors forever. Many are struggling and just days away from doing the same.

If they hadn’t already, many small businesses owners have had to learn to shift their thinking, adopt new strategies, and implement marketing and service tactics that they may never have. It is the great hustle to remain relevant and open for business, even if it means delivering in new ways.

Have you seen businesses embrace a new way of operating? I’ve been studying and keeping my eyes open, but I’d love to hear about what you’ve observed. Share an experience you’ve had with a small business you support or have watched in the comments below.

And while Oregon continues to mandate closures and strong restrictions, know that I’m praying for all the independent shops, artisans, craftspeople, and visionaries out there and I’m supporting you as you navigate each day and decision with strength and determination.

    Praying for all of that, for us, for you, and every business contact that reads this encouragement.

      Thank you! I know all small businesses appreciate prayers during this time, especially!
