Steps small businesses can take now to survive Covid-19 lockdown

I have always had a healthy respect for small business owners and entrepreneurs. Whether they started their businesses out of a dire need for employment or had a vision and just went for it and created a livelihood for themselves‚ I think it is very brave‚ and their hard work and perseverance deserves admiration.

We find ourselves in unprecedented times. Apart from the social impairments we are experiencing by not being able to have contact with our family and friends‚ our working lives also had to adjust drastically to adopt to specifications in order to flatten the curve.

For small businesses‚ this lockdown and the subsequent restrictions placed on businesses have a monumental impact. However‚ entrepreneurs are known for their determination‚ perseverance‚ creativity and tenacity. These traits are exactly what is needed in times like these.

Some of the most important aspects to focus on are ensuring you keep costs to a minimum while trying to find new‚ creative ways to keep your operation running.

While doing this‚ you also need to strategise and be forward thinking about how your business can recover and be even stronger in the future‚ and‚ above all‚ remain ethical and take care of your employees and customers.
