2020 started with protests in Hong Kong, then bushfires in Australia. In the US, we had impeachment hearings and an over 1000 point drop in the stock market. Then came COVID and shutdown/quarantine, which sent millions of workers into a long work-from-home (with children “e-learning”) experiment.
That was just the first quarter.
Since then, we’ve been through further roiling financial markets, the most significant drop in employment in US history, record low oil prices, worldwide anti-racism demonstrations, and we’ve still got a Presidential Election coming.
If you are having a hard time forecasting where your business is headed or even figuring out how to measure progress toward your goals; you are not alone.
