Too many ideas, not nearly enough time
As a small business owner having to close during Covid-19, I have to pivot and change. I have been busy training on how to do video’s and learning how to provide interactive virtual classes. I am a teacher/instructor. One of the things I teach is technology to seniors. It is important that I have an interactive way to show them how to use their cell phones and tablets. In the age of Covid-19 (and beyond), it is more important than ever that seniors are comfortable with using technology.
Learning how to Pivot
I am trying to figure out how to do what I see others doing. How did they get that survey to pop up? How are they doing getting that double screen? What is that piece of equipment? Do I need to have a headset? Questions, questions and more questions. But I have found some good education programs, and I am working through getting the equipment I need. I have applied for funding opportunities through the Northern Ontario Recovery Program www.nohfc.ca to help cover off some of the costs. I am hoping to be up and running by the end of November with my first videos. Keep an eye on www.sumthing.ca starting December.
Having to change is a good thing
So, for all of you entrepreneurs out there who have had to pivot to make your business work during Covid-19, congratulations. I know some of you have made changes you never would have made without it and will continue those changes on beyond Covid-19. There is always a positive to every negative. Stay well, keep a positive outlook and take some time to get outside and rake those leaves! It will be snowing here before we know it.
