We set the stage for examining how the business world in general will change in what will be the post-pandemic environment to come (and yes, it will!). We believe that it is critical that companies across the board, from the largest corporations to small, local businesses develop strategies to succeed in the post-pandemic environment.
We are all living today through what history will undoubtedly look upon as nothing less than a watershed event.

After a long day, it can be tough to find time or energy to get dinner on the table – so take advantage of your slow cooker and let it do all of the work for you. A few minutes of morning prep time are all you need for a rich, satisfying dinner that’s ready to serve the moment you walk through the door.
