Are you sure you have everything?


Those six simple words, “Are you sure you have everything?” harken back to an earlier time — two months ago — when people still went places. Parents would shout it from doorsteps as their kids rushed off to school. It was sure to come up when saying goodbye at the airport. Even yawning hosts would mumble it as they showed guests the door. “Are you sure you have everything?”

We may not be traveling or socializing these days, but it’s still a valid question, especially for business owners and those responsible for their organization’s future. As the world begins to slowly emerge from the grip of the pandemic, are you sure you have everything you need to succeed?

We can each start by asking the tough questions specific to our own industry. How do I convince customers that it’s safe to return to my restaurants? What is the best way to establish a new practice area now that my law firm’s main concentration is on pause? With three major funding sources lost, where does my not-for-profit turn for support?

This is the time to make sure you have what you need to answer those questions in a way that will move your business forward. As Long Island’s leading public relations marketing firm, Epoch 5 can help.
