The COVID-19 crisis took us all by surprise. Small business owners have had to come up with real solutions for keeping themselves afloat, maintaining and assisting their current client base, and adjusting to non-traditional working conditions. The shifts and pivots made now will certainly impact a company’s future. And now that ‘business as usual' doesn't exist, how do women in business use this opportunity to change their perspective and pivot to profit?
