Is your business pandemic proof?

We are living through some interesting times, the pandemic has changed the way we work and interact. Whether you are a business owner, a consultant, or an employee I always say it’s important to have more than one stream of income, its best to have multiple streams of income so if/when one dries up or slows you can still comfortably survive. Someone who knows a lot about this is Lisa Newton, a serial entrepreneur, author, and course creator who started her first business with £150 and is now an award-winning serial entrepreneur. Lisa share’s her story as well as some tips for entrepreneurs! You can watch it on Youtube or listen to the podcast link below.
