Common Challenges in Crises

In a crisis, a lot of information comes our way. In some cases it overloads, and necessary information is hard to find. Challenges to small business owners include:

  • Transitioning to online sales and service delivery
  • Understanding government assistance and loan programs
  • Dealing with forced business closure
  • Productivity: working from home
  • Strategic planning/marketing at uncertain times
  • Pivoting and adapting: how your business moves forward
  • Dealing with employee issues

Webinars: Coping and Adapting

Ask experts and network with other business owners. Every Wednesday, Extension will be hosting the statewide online webinar, “Coping with COVID-19.” This open forum encourages questions to instructors and guest experts (bankers, consultants). Webinars will be conducted in English in the morning and Spanish in the afternoon. While we are advised to stay home, this is a chance to stay connected. Register and find resources on Extension’s business development page.
