Getting out of the water—but treading water is a close second!
Simply floating in water might look easy, but it’s actually pretty difficult if you don’t have a flotation device, and treading water is an essential safety skill for anyone who plans on spending time on or near the water. People who teach swimming will tell you the main ingredient is staying calm and practising essential skills that keep you floating there no matter what is happening around you.
If you can survive the initial riptide this virus has had in affecting businesses the next thing you need to do is to be able to simply float. There is legislation to stop landlords throwing you out of your premises, most finance companies are looking to put your loans on hold, many staff have been accepting of the rationality of their employers and the Australian Taxation Office has been exceptional when Your Business Angels has approached them to put tax debt and agreements aside often for considerable periods.
If you can stop panicking and get out of the rip now is the time to float. Keep working, keep banking money and paying your current bills and moving forward working in week type compartments.
Winston Churchill at the height of the bombing on London during the Second World War, when he didn’t have any answers for what was happening to his country he just said “keep bunkering on”which meant keep plodding on because slowly but surely you put the plans together in your business to move forward.
There is never time for panic, those who are going to keep their heads will keep their business.
