From Record Executive to Master Networker, this Guy Explains How Great Crises Can Create Great Opportunities! – 203

We’re in the middle of a global pandemic. The first thing on many people’s minds is how to make money. If you’re an entrepreneur with a passion for helping others, you might also feel a responsibility to create jobs for others less fortunate.

That’s certainly the case if you’re Phil Leahy, Tim’s guest today on the AM/PM Podcast.

Phil tells the story of surviving bankruptcy and pivoting towards e-commerce. Now, he, like many of us, is financially suffering the effects of COVID-19. But, instead of complaining, he and his small (company) team have rolled up their sleeves and are helping supply front-line workers with the tools to get their jobs done.
