Positively West Virginia
COVID-19 – Special Edition – Andy Kniceley


Show notes:

Normally each week, on this podcast, we interview West Virginia business leaders and share their success stories.
For the next few days – who knows how long that will be – we’re going to bring you daily special edition broadcasts specifically and intentionally around this basic question:  What can West Virginia businesses do – right now – to survive this current COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic situation we’re all facing today?
When we first started this podcast project in 2017, we wanted to inspire people and equip people in West Virginia with examples of real-life entrepreneurs and businesses who built businesses in West Virginia.
So, this new urgent situation that we all find ourselves in –  falls right in line with our mission of Positively West Virginia.
Every weekday, we will be bringing you these business briefings to help business owners and business leaders – especially small businesses – practical ideas to use today.  Right now.
