June 16 - Revitalizing Your Business Opportunities with Jackie B Peterson 

The long-term changes to business that are the result of the Corona Virus Pandemic are beginning to take form. We are seeing businesses go virtual, a tremendous rise in e-commerce over in person business and we are also seeing a slow and cautious re-opening of restaurants, retail stores and even personal service businesses.

In this hour, we are going to talk about several examples of specific businesses and how they have changed, how they operate to account for the “new normal” and learn what changes everyone has made to adapt to current circumstances. We will discuss:

  • What has been your experience?
  • Of the changes you have seen, which ones do you think will be permanent?
  • How are you adapting to the new normal?
  • Have you been able to make changes that have helped you recover financially? Or are you one of the winners whose business is better than ever?

The goal of this discussion is to share real stories, and from those stories our member experiences, observations and wisdom, helping us each to chart a course of action into a very different future than we first envisioned for 2020.

Facilitator Jackie B Peterson is owner of Better, Smarter, Richer a consulting company focused on helping solopreneurs create fulfilling businesses that support their lives. Jackie is also a part time business advisor and instructor for the Portland Community College Small Business Development Center.
