Note: Make sure your financial projections support taking on additional debt and you have accounted for repayments.
For example: Consider offering online classes, family-style to-go meals, or delivery services for a fee. Be sure to think about opportunities to use existing resources (such as machinery, personnel, or processes) in new ways!
Tip: Reach out to businesses that sell complimentary products or services and already offer delivery to see if you can collaborate.
For example: Make sure your sick leave policies are current, flexible, and non-punitive and accommodate sick employees staying home to care for themselves, their children, or other family members.
Tip: Address items such as sanitation practices and safe distancing guidelines.
