A Special Coronavirus Message to Our Friends from Positively Outrageous Service!!!
“A bend in the road is not the end of the road… Unless you fail to make the turn.”
Like many of you, Michael and I are rethinking our business strategies in this time of turmoil, turbulence and trouble. We are revamping some of programs and delivery mechanisms to preserve, protect and pivot our clients’ profitability, market share and competitive edge.
The Coronavirus pandemic has changed our business in that we are currently not meeting face-to-face or delivering our content live. We are making the “turn” to appropriately navigate the bend in the road. But this is also a time to not just hunker down and be defensive but to reach out to help others in need. Not all will successfully navigate the sharp bend in the road.
“So, first of all, let me assert my firm belief that the only thing we have to fear is…fear itself — nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance. In every dark hour of our national life a leadership of frankness and of vigor has met with that understanding and support of the people themselves which is essential to victory.”
Franklin Delano Roosevelt, 32nd President, Inaugration Speech, March 1933.
We trust it brings hope, a smile, and a ray of sunshine into the world we now must defend, rebuild or redirect.
Andrew, Michael and Scott
