Managing and growing a business is a challenge for every entrepreneur. How can that happen in a global pandemic? By staying nimble and pivoting where necessary. Hear first-hand lessons from leaders like Jason Ray, CEO and founder of Paperless Parts, a cloud-based platform that streamlines the quoting process for manufacturing; Sue Fuller, co-founder of The Oliver Thomas, maker of fully washable handbags; and Manasi Gangan, founder and president of the Nested Bean, a sleepwear company that produces weighted swaddling and sleeping bags for babies. The episode closes with independent footwear consultant Larry Reins weighing in on whether fashion will see permanent changes.
