How the coronavirus pandemic affects your business, and how are you coping?

The outbreak of coronavirus disease-20191 (COVID-19) has severely affected national and global economies. Various enterprises are facing different issues with a certain degree of losses. A key factor of business success relies on risk management, and pandemics carry a huge amount of risk.

We tried to cope up with the Risk through Risk management planning which involves identifying risks, assessing the impact of risks and developing strategies to manage risks to your business.

What specific tools, software, and management skills are you using to navigate this crisis and stress?

We are using Digital Tools for communications, ERP and Social Media Platforms to remain connected.

Who are your competitors? And how do you plan to stay in the game?

I believe in Ed Tech no one is competitor and everyone is working towards a common goal of improvement and capacity building, so I never take them as competitor rather as a motivator.

Your final thoughts?

We are living in a world which moves with the speed of light and such requires a modern innovative approach to all aspects of life.

Education systems and environments where we spend most of our time do not always allow us to acquire the skills required to persuade others to do business with us, find our business ideas, dream customers, and profitable markets.

We haven't been even taught that the more value we create for others, the more we get from life. Even worse, most entrepreneurs spend tens of thousands of dollars on starting a business that ends up being nothing more than a glorified logo, website, or storefront that doesn't actually do anything.
