Currently, the spread of coronavirus has impacted many businesses, especially in larger cities like Chicago where it has led many to temporarily close. While a large number of businesses have already reopened, the effects of COVID-19 will continue to be felt long after resuming activity.
Jeremy Greenberg, the founder of 97 Switch in Chicago, was recently featured on the Restarting America podcast. In the podcast episode, Greenberg discusses how the current health pandemic has affected his company and how they are adapting to new circumstances. One aspect that Greenberg is striving to implement at 97 Switch during this time is self-improvement. “We’re working on ourselves. We’re starting with me,” said Greenberg. “We’re starting with our employees. We want them to be able to execute the best we can for the clients we’re currently working with and then also help propel our company forward.”
Greenberg shares a positive message, one that portrays all of the good that will come to those who persevere. “I really believe that the people who stay the strongest will be able to have some really great rewards on the other side of this thing,” he said.
Greenberg gives advice to other business owners—he says to enjoy the ride.“My recommendation is to hold on, strap in and enjoy the ride because this is a ride that we will tell stories about for a long time,” he said. “I look forward to the day on which we will be joking about these moments. This is part of our journey.”
