CoronaBytes: Getting to the "New Normal"

To provide current, relevant and valuable insights on the changing consumer, business and cultural landscape due to COVID-19, especially as it relates to "the new normal" (coming out of this!)

A little bit of background and context about me and CoronaTV: I am a 5-time author and my latest book is titled, "Built to Suck: The Inevitable Demise of the Corporation...and how to save it?" (www.builttosuck) which if you think about it, has become pretty prophetic as we look at entire businesses and business models being directly affected.

I started CoronaTV with a vision of helping as many people as I could (through consistent insights, advice and support.) This includes you :) How? Well, I'm thinking that every two weeks as we wrap up a question, I will share some of these insights through my various channels, but specifically an episode of CoronaTV and who knows, maybe you'll be guests on my show! For now, check out coronaTV.show and make sure you subscribe.

Stay safe everyone!
