Ep 047 - Finding The Hidden Opportunities During Crisis
Finding Hidden Opportunities
Was 2020 the worst year of your life? You may have lost someone due to the pandemic or even gotten sick yourself, or perhaps you suffered financial setbacks or a bit of depression from all the isolation. However, even in crisis comes a wealth of opportunity for any entrepreneur willing to take it.
This week Travis Jennings, co-founder and CEO of Gaia Flooring, returns to the show. Because he manufactures his product in China, he was among the first in the U.S. to get financially hit when the outbreak happened there. The virus nearly put a halt to his production before making its presence fully known in the U.S.
So how did he pivot during this uncertain time? What opportunities did he find to expand his business and continue to grow? Travis has been working hard to make sure his business survives and thrives throughout this ordeal, and he has a wealth of experiences from inside the trenches when it comes to this topic.
Travis Jennings is a millennial entrepreneur, co-founder, and CEO of Gaia Flooring. His company produces quality, safe, and healthy wholesale flooring products without cutting corners or compromising in the process. For Travis, every step matters and he believes it can and should be done in luxurious and environmentally-friendly ways.
