From CNBC, here are some of the best tips from the article:
- Lower your expectations for what’s going to happen
- People are scared. That means not all your customers may feel comfortable returning.
- Don’t put any specific targets in place because you don’t know what it’s going to be like….
- Obviously, you’re going to have social distancing, and [it] may be very hard to be profitable if you’re expecting people to come to your store somewhere.
- Keep your overhead low. Try and keep the best employees around you because you’re gonna need them one day.
- Lower your expectations and stay lean and mean and don’t spend money on stuff you don’t need.
- This is a time to really practice being thrifty.
And my favorite:
- People are still out of their [minds] worried about this virus, and they’re going to take a long time to forget about it. So, you have to stay alive for that day.
