How do you see your business evolving due to the changing times?
March of 2020 brought many changes to the ways our firm interfaces and collaborates as a team and with our clients. When the workforce became largely remote, and businesses had to adjust their operations, leveraging technology became even more critical.
Janover established the infrastructure and adopted key technology solutions prior to COVID-19. The firm continually evaluates innovative solutions to not only improve the efficiency of the firm’s operations but to better service our clients.
As our clients faced unique challenges throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the professionals at Janover quickly responded by creating a CARES Act/COVID-19 task force to advise and help clients navigate programs, including PPP and ERC.
Our firm consulted with businesses and provided guidance to help them claim benefits to meet their cash flow, maintain their workforce and handle other critical challenges.
What advice would you give other business owners?
Be proactive, prepare as much as possible, and rely on others for things outside your core business so you can focus on evolving and growing your business. While you can’t anticipate all challenges, staying on top of industry trends and issues and being ready to pivot can better position your business for the future.
Find a network of professionals to support your business and partner with them to handle your various needs, whether that be tax and accounting, legal, banking, etc.
