Is Your Company Prepared for the Unexpected?
Originally published in the Kitsap Business Journal, January 26, 2022.
How are you dealing with VUCA?

This is an acronym you should become familiar with if you are tasked with protecting the assets and financial statement of your company. That includes small business owners, CEOs, COOs, and a whole bunch of people interested in the continuation of the company they work for.

VUCA stands for Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity. 
These four categories can be destructive to company goals and healthy bottom lines for all businesses. In my experience, far too few business leaders invest time in considering VUCA as part of their goal-setting and strategic planning.


WA Hospitality Hosts Restaurant Roundtable with Senator Cantwell
Last week, Senator Maria Cantwell held a roundtable with restaurant owners from across the state advocating for additional funding for the Restaurant Revitalization Fund (RRF). Washington Hospitality Association President & CEO Anthony Anton moderated the discussion.

The RRF program administered $28.6 billion last year. However, one-third — or 170,000 eligible restaurants — did not receive RRF grants. The estimated need is $43 billion to fund unmet applications stuck in the queue.

In Washington, 7,236 eateries submitted applications for a total requested amount of more than $2 billion. Just 3,247 (44.9%) requests were approved.
