The past year has taught business owners a lot about leadership, innovation, flexibility and teamwork. We came to understand that business as usual can change in an instant, so we need to be able to adapt quickly. We found that technology is a great tool that can open doors if we open our minds to all the possibilities. And, we learned that with the right people, we have what we need to innovate and win despite the obstacles we face.
While some of our local favorite businesses did not survive, there is a lot of resilience within the small business community. Some businesses thrived in the chaos and uncertainty that was 2020. Others struggled but made it through and are now applying the lessons learned to rebuild their business better in 2021.
