Two weeks ago, our CEO Allan Martinson sent an email to everyone who has signed up for Xolo. We also published it on our blog. He wanted to know how Xolopreneurs around the world are managing during these difficult times.
He received hundreds of replies. As these are tough times for everyone, we braced for doom and gloom.
Indeed, we got responses from some clients who were personally affected by the crisis, had lost their revenues or were living in the epicentres of the pandemic. Our hearts and minds are with you, and we are trying to help with what we can.
About one quarter of the respondents reported significant impact on their business. Another quarter said there has been no impact or even a positive impact. The majority was somewhere in between.
What was the most amazing was the overall positive spirit of the responses. About two-thirds of the Xolopreneurs who responded sent us very optimistic emails, including many of those who were in a very dire situation. People were full of fighting spirit and tended to see opportinities rather than problems.
Below, we have put together some quotes from those emails. Reading them was a heart-warming exercise. People like you make us believe that we will emerge from this crisis stronger. Thank you so much!
Allan's final question asked for tips that might be useful for other Xolopreneuers, but we'll be saving them for another blog post.
