4 Things To Do During Self Isolation
By JoAnn Lombardi, VR Business Brokers/Mergers & Acquisitions, President
As everyone is aware, the recent outbreak of COVID-19 has caused changes in our social behavior, our economy, and our perceptions. This means limited personal interactions, a slower economy, and a great deal of hardship. So what can your business be doing in these uncertain times? Here are some ideas.
Virtual Meetings
If you don't already have a go to virtual meeting solution, find one. A simple Google search will give you some options or read the article in Today's Business Owner at: https://www.vrbusinessbrokrs.com/overview/Corporate-Overview/Today-s-Business-Owner%C2%AE-2020-Archive/March-2020.html for more ideas. Virtual meetings are a great idea now and will continue to be in the future.
Connect With Your Clients
Now is a great time to connect with your email list, including past and future clients, Let them know any precautions you are taking, if you open, and update them on the local situation. You may also want to let them know about programs being offered via the SBA or other government agencies that may provide them some benefit.
Get On Social Media
With many people stuck at home, social media is the place to be. Post, share, and comment to get exposure. Use a service such as HootSuite.com to manage multiple platforms.
If your business is experiencing a slow down as many are, take the opportunity to evaluate your marketing efforts. Look back at past successes and failures and determine which marketing avenues have provided the biggest "bang for your buck". Digging through the data may provide some valuable insight into future marketing decisions.

Distressed Investing — COVID-19 Virtual Roundtable
COVID-19 virtual roundtable focused on distressed investing. Nine Axial members, including lenders, family offices, private equity firms, and advisors came together on Zoom to discuss how deals are progressing (or not) in a very uncertain environment. How soon will we see an uptick in distressed activity? Are there ways lower middle market firms can get creative and find opportunities in the recession? What are the biggest deal stoppers — obvious and not — and will firms get around them? 
Watch the video. Based on your feedback, we’ve also uploaded the audio of the roundtable to a streaming service; find the link below.
