Overcoming Adversity & Adapting

Overcoming Adversity & Adapting

March 31, 2020

On this episode, Liz and Vince get candid and discuss the brutal realities of the current pandemic on their respective businesses. They explain the unexpected reason they are optimistic and excited for the future and also offer advice for those feeling lost and discouraged during this worldwide crisis. 

Offering two different perspectives, Liz’s food blog, The Lemon Bowl, is the busiest it’s ever been in 10 years due to everyone cooking around the clock while home under quarantine. Simultaneously, Liz is now juggling homeschooling her two young boys giving her less time to manage her growing business. 

On the other hand, Vince’s restaurant, Irie Kitchen, has been forced to change their business model to takeout and delivery only, almost overnight. 

Topics discussed in this episode include:

  • How to turn fear and sadness into positive energy
  • The importance of adapting instead of getting discouraged
  • How the virus has brought people closer together in their communities
  • Becoming offensive in situations like this and not getting defensive
