Coronavirus (COVID-19) Resources

I have spent my lifetime in the military—as a child of a veteran, the mother of a veteran, and I am a veteran of the U.S. Air Force myself. I know the lessons we learn in the military. As the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) sweeps across the country, temporarily shuttering businesses and devastating the economy, I want us to call on these learnings. Remember the chaos you had to manage?  Today it may seem that there is so much chaos you don’t know what to do.  When there was chaos in the military, we learned to stop, pause, look at the chaos from all sides and then take action.  How many times did you not have the supplies you needed?  Many times, it happened, we had to find a way to make it work.  We learned to adapt to all situations, discipline, structure, and sense of camaraderie you felt in the military.  Do not forget how we had each other’s back “Got Your 6” this situation is no different, we will be there for each other, remember the lessons you learned they are what makes us great business leaders and owners and will get us through this.

If you are a veteran or military business owner in New England, please let us know if you need assistance.  Also, if you have any tips for other business owners you would like to share. 

We are in a time where there are unknowns, and we have a lot to figure out.  We want to be able to help our businesses as we have many resources. I don’t know that we can help everyone, but we would like to see how we can work together to manage problems.
