Maintaining Small Business Goals

Please join us on Friday, March 27th at 12:00 PM CST for our 2nd of our 16-week series, How to Thrive in the New Normal. 

You can view all Thriving in the New Normal broadcasts at, or Select Dealer, > Training Resources and look for the Thriving in the New Normal logo.

During session 1, we covered the importance of developing a plan:

Have a plan

Initiate an adaptable business continuity plan and communicate that plan. Things to consider in your plan:

  • Solutions you can provide
  • Communication strategies
  • Tools necessary to properly diagnose problems in-person and virtually
  • In-person and remote selling strategies
  • Payment solutions
  • Customer retention strategy
  • Brand messaging

In session 2, we will cover the tools and resources available to you to help you thrive in a new normal by embracing the term virtual.  

Virtual – (vir·tu·al) Can be used to describe anything that exists in effect, but not in fact; it is often used to describe things created in a computer or online world.
