In planning your cash, we propose our 3 P’s: Preserve, Prepare, and Prosper. - Pinky Poe

No one really knows how this will all fall out. But what we know for sure is that this crisis is not the first. There was the Great depression, 2 world wars, an oil crisis, multiple financial crises, and many more in the past century.

More importantly, we know this will not be the last.  With ecological disasters happening more and more, this is definitely not the last disruption we will be experiencing.

And in all those times of crisis, through all the ups and downs, many companies survived.

There’s the 100 year club, all, as the name says, at least a hundred years old -- General Electric and Coca Cola, founded in 1892, 128 years old. Smuckers, those jams we all love, Target, UPS, Nikon, they are all over 100 years old.

The survivors, we will find as we go through our own crisis, will find a way to pivot their businesses, find new opportunities, and manage their cash, weather the crisis, and emerge even stronger.
