By now, we are all well aware of the impact of the coronavirus. Things are changing rapidly, on a daily, if not hourly, basis. First off, let’s not panic! But let’s also recognize that it may get a little rough and rocky for a while. No one knows for how long, but in the meantime, stay informed, review facts, verify information and then take action accordingly.
Depending on where you live and your operating business environment, you may not be impacted at all, or you may only experience some small inconveniences. Some small business owners, though, may find themselves having to rethink how they do business for a few weeks, or longer. As I said, no one knows.
Below, I have listed a few points for you to consider to help you plan for all contingencies:
1. Stay in tune with your local authorities regarding the risk factor based on where you live and also on your personal situation in terms of health, vulnerability, etc.
2. Gather information from your local, State and Federal governments so you can make the most informed and safe decisions.
3. Follow recommended protocols for contact with other people. In the United States, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has published this document, titled Protect yourself and your community from getting and spreading respiratory illnesses like coronavirus disease 2019.
4. Consider your business model and how you deliver services, so get remote- or virtual- friendly wherever possible. In other words, make use of technology to sustain your business services during these uncertain times. Here are some options:
If you run group classes and work in a small enclosed area, consider taking classes on the road where you can manage your exposure and proximity to people.
Consider conducting virtual lessons via webcam so you can continue to coach and provide feedback to clients. Coaching can be done on a one-to-one basis or in small groups. Software such as GoToMeeting, Skype, Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Hangouts Meet, and even Facebook Messenger can be used. These all give you the ability to work remotely while interacting both audibly and visibly with clients.
