There is no doubt that Covid-19 has decimated or severely damaged many SMEs worldwide. Is your business one of them? Or, has your business survived relatively unscathed? Perhaps it has even boomed? If your business falls into either of the latter two categories, have you thought about reaching out and helping those businesses which haven’t done so well?
One thing that’s obvious to successful business owners is that to get ahead, you must be connected and enrich the lives of others in some way or other. Goodness knows – countless charities sorely need support. But why not help other businesses that are struggling because of Covid-19? By doing that, they will undoubtedly be grateful and pay it forward as they begin to grow again. Everyone wins.
There are various ways that you can help businesses to recover – sponsorship, providing referrals, giving free advice in areas of expertise, practical help with business plans, and so on.
By reaching out, connecting, and supporting, you will not only be enriching the lives of others but your own too.
