How COVID-19 Changed the Entrepreneurial World

Some of us are sick of hearing about coronavirus, while some of us are working around the clock to stay informed and ensure we are up to date with the latest practices and laws.

It doesn’t matter which category you sit in, there is one fact we can’t deny. Coronavirus is here, it’s happening, and it’s changed the way entrepreneurs and business owners operate – maybe forever.

You may remember a post I published a little while ago covering the essential skills of an engineer entrepreneur. I mentioned creativity and problem solving. As some stores are being forced to shut their doors and stricter guidelines are coming into place, getting creative and solving problems has never been more important.

Some new skills that need to be added to that list in the face of COVID-19, or any pandemic, are resilience and the ability to adapt. We are now required to do business in different ways, and continue to make money as for some entrepreneurs, their business is their only income stream.

How Australian businesses are affected by Coronavirus

As an engineer, I am considered an essential service provider. This means I haven’t had any restrictions implemented in Australia. I am still allowed to operate my business.

However, government regulations aren’t the only thing that are impacting businesses. The concerns of the public, customers and clients are something we all need to take into consideration. The safety of our staff and anyone entering our premises should now be a priority for everyone – even more so than before.

How I am moving through the tough times and turmoil of Coronavirus

I have implemented many changes into my business since the arrival of Covid-19. As entrepreneurs, we have to be flexible and move through the times.

I created a new work safe statement for my team, and I conduct jobs with gloves and a face mask, as well as careful sanitation procedures.

I have also enforced my own restrictions on the office. Below are some images that I have on display around my workspace. Hopefully, you can take some inspiration from this for your own work environment.
