E13: Running Your Local Business During Covid-19


Covid-19 has us doing things we never planned this week that can leave us feeling overwhelmed. 


We’re looking at what is happening over the next several weeks and what that means to us as individual Americans, humans, and local business owners, along with the impact we’ll have on our small or large audiences. We are also thinking about the right things to say at this time.  

After much contemplation, I wanted to share what is in my heart and what matters most to me in these uncertain times to give you comfort and direction as a local business owner. I’ve got lots of great resources for you in this show so you can sustain as much as possible, your kindness, impact and empathy on your community during uncertain times. Helping each other is so important.


In episode 13 of Small Stage, Big Impact we discuss:  


  • [6:20] How to handle your upcoming scheduled events 
  • [7:11] Variables to consider and questions to ask in regard to your scheduled events so you don’t waste time and money
