My sanitizer was so successful that there was too much demand for what we had. The solution was to pivot again, and get some outside help. With business schools closed, the students were able to help me with producing the sanitizer. The warehouses I sold to could help me produce on a much larger scale. We were able to produce 64 gallons of sanitizer at the same time, and demand could finally be met.
When schools reopened and sanitizers became much easier to make, I decided to sell my companies. I now help other businesses to think, pivot and grow as we did. During these difficult times for myself and my businesses, the solution was always to pivot. If your business is struggling, find out what people need and how you can pivot your business to expand or change as the world does.
