Sons chronicled how growers that proved themselves capable of meeting local communities' nutritional needs have so far fared well during the pandemic compared to other industries such as education and commercial real estate. Self-sustainable growers, including those that eschew the use of non-renewable energy, don't further pollute the environment, and are fiscally responsible, tend to have done the best.Strategies for Creating a Successful Business VentureOther knowledge imparted by Sons in other pieces published on the Entrepreneur site center around how to prioritize employee safety following the Covid-19 pandemic. She suggests that employers need to spend time learning more about what it will take for employees to feel comfortable operating in a traditional workplace once again. Sons pointed to preliminary research that suggests that workers would at the very least expect their employers to have a sound "disinfecting plan" in place. She also has written another piece discussing all things Meta (the new Facebook), accessible at Entrepreneur.com/article/399687.This social media platform is slated to be an "immersive internet experience" that blends augmented reality, social media, and other nuanced technological advances to reenvision how people interact virtually. Many metaverse supporters view the interaction opportunities that this new platform offers as providing consumers with safe alternatives to keep the learning and sharing process going when in-person communication isn't possible due to this pandemic or future ones that are likely to emerge. Another article that Sons wrote detailed how a cryptocurrency conglomerate recently formed and raised over $40 million to purchase a rare version of the U.S. Constitution. Sons pointed out that the processes (namely collective organizing) that unfolded leading up to this purchase could serve as a model for other important initiatives. Although it may seem like none of these topics are closely related to what the nursery does, they are. Enhanced cross-communication, collective organizing, and strategies for successfully running a business, including implementing a Covid-19 disinfectant protocol, are all things that have impacted how a company like ours has remained self-sufficient and will continue to evolve in the future.TN Nursery's CEO Aims To Empower Other Horticulturalists, and Business Owners Sons are on the Forbes Council and a member of the Newsweek Expert Forum.
