This month’s newsletter is full of helpful tools and resources to assist you in getting your workshop off the ground in the wake of the Covid-19 lockdown.

Here it is: Lockdown Level 3. It’s a moment that many have been waiting for, ushering in not only greater personal freedoms, but also the ability to get back to work and start generating more income.

Of course, this has been a major concern for most of us during the coronavirus lockdown. The financial stress has come at a time when there are many other worries on our minds, from how to remain healthy to how to survive the unnatural state of self-isolation. 

In this month’s newsletter, we do our best to help you deal with all of these issues. We have practical advice on how to handle stress, how to save your business money, how to upskill your employees and audit your business to ensure you’re able to improve efficiency and offer a superior service. We’ve also included information on industry and association developments.

The initial shock of the pandemic is still with us, and its effects are certain to last a while longer. But our attitude in overcoming the challenges these present is key. We can either choose to allow them to become giant obstacles, or we can learn from this experience and use the teachings to help us become more competent, and more competitive, than ever.

Stay safe.

Pieter Niemand, MIWA National Director
