Recovery Strategies Staying Positive
To quote Winston Churchill, business owners are optimists because they "saw the opportunity in every crisis." It's difficult to understand why someone would want to establish a business without putting everything on the line: their money, their time, and their pride. #ThinkWithNiche
On the other hand, the pandemic has had an impact. Many people's vitality has been sapped by lockdowns, problems with government programmes, constantly changing legislation, and personnel shortages.
What can you do to regain your positive attitude? Optimism may be maintained in a variety of ways: Keep an eye on the latest trends. The NFIB's confidence index increased for the first time since November 2020 in June 2021. Everything appears to be progressing.

Keep your eyes on the prize:- If your company is still operating, there is reason to be optimistic. Things may be a lot worse than they are today. During the Great Recession, 170,000 firms closed their doors, according to estimates (2008 to 2010). More than 7.5 percent of businesses close each year, regardless of economic conditions. However, in comparison to the Great Recession, the number of enterprises that "exited" as a result of COVID-19 was considerably fewer than projected by the Federal Reserve, which estimated that 200,000 firms "exited" (a nice euphemism for closing down) during the pandemic. The number of shutdowns varied greatly per industry, according to the Federal Reserve. Closings of barbershops and nail salons, for example, were more common than normal. According to the Federal Reserve, a phrase used to characterise this occurrence, just a percentage of the 200,000 closures surpassed historical averages.
