Good News! – December 2020

Good News! – December 2020

Back in August 2009 B.C. (Before Covid), deep in the trough of the Great Recession and weary of the daily barrage of “Everything’s going wrong and the world is about to end!” we began this monthly roundup of what was still going right. Today, Covid-19 has created a new kind of uncertainty — but with a critical difference: everyone is susceptible this time around. No “best practices” or management jujitsu will stop the virus, only slow its spread (or so we hope), until widespread vaccine availability (we hope). So, in addition to our regular roundup of business growth and change, we’ve added a special section on how businesses are coping with the coronavirus. Sorry, it’s not all good news right now… but you knew that.

Here’s your chance to follow the leaders, every third Tuesday of the month!

And if you’re not doing it already, send us your good news here!
