I’ve watched disaster movies, read about the Spanish flu and the Black Death, but never in a million years did I expect to experience a pandemic myself. Do you feel the same way?
It hit me on February 27th when I arrived in the US. I read about the first confirmed death in the United States and the first confirmed case in Iceland. It became clear to me: We are having a worldwide pandemic and everyone is going to be affected in one way or another.
My first reaction was to go to CVS and buy a small hand sanitizer bottle. Two days later I wanted to buy more bottles but hand sanitizer was sold out all over the United States. That’s how fast the world changed - in just 2 days.
In this episode of the Sigrun Show, I share how I’m adjusting to the new normal, what decisions I took for my business in the last 7 weeks and how challenging times like these always bring new opportunities with them.
I also talk about how Iceland became the best case study for how to respond to a pandemic and how service-based online business is booming right now. Are you wondering what opportunities are out there for you during this crisis? Then this episode is for you.
