One of the most amusing aspects of the Covid-19 shutdown has been the consistent scarcity of toilet paper. In the 50+ years I’ve been alive, I can’t ever remember the shelves in the paper aisle at the grocery store standing bare week after week for months, and the dairy section having limited stock on a regular basis.

Transforming your team to digital environments: necessity or optional?

While it is no new news for anyone in the world, the COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way that business is being done – for better or for worse. Both sides of the coin are being discussed by business owners around the globe – how for some businesses, the virtual environment has enabled their businesses, while for others, it has hurt them drastically.
