3:30 PM ET – Mike Lindell, CEO and Founder of My Pillow and Tyler Merritt, CEO and Founder of Nine Line Apparel, talk about what they are doing to help in the wake of this virus as business owners.
Minnesota-based company MyPillow is joining the effort to supply health care workers with the protective gear they need amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
CEO Mike Lindell says about 75% of MyPillow’s production will now be making cotton face masks for health care workers. He says about 90% of the company’s sewers will be working on the masks.
Covid-19 has affected nearly every person, business, and industry in the world. Once fear has set in, crime will likely begin to increase. Desperation will oftentimes encourage law-abiding citizens to make both unhealthy and unethical decisions.
It’s times like these that we turn to leadership for encouragement in staying positive, overcoming fear, and making conscious decisions to be a positive influence for change.
In our very own backyard of Savannah, GA we are already seeing the local economy divested by layoffs. The cancellation of our St Patrick’s day festivities will undoubtedly lead to financial hardships for hundreds of businesses that are reliant on the increased holiday revenue. While fear has encouraged everyone to hoard supplies, barricade themselves inside, and socially “distance” themselves from the world, we need to take a different approach.
