A few months ago, we started looking at small businesses within the Towne Advisory circle that are doing great things to help their businesses survive during this COVID-19 crisis. Recently, we talked to Tony Quintong, the owner of Securieon Group.
Securieon is a company designed to deal with times just like the ones we’re facing now. It offers insightful tactics and implementations for founders and investors experiencing pivotal points in their company’s growth. Whether it’s leadership alignment or sustainable and scalable revenue growth, Securieon is there to help its customers succeed.
Tony recognized early on that COVID-19 was changing his marketplace. He pivoted his business to focus on business owners facing the difficult question of whether to stick it out or find an exit strategy.
Over the years, Tony has learned that tough times are what precipitate action with business owners. When they feel both an emotional and compelling financial pain, they start to evaluate their lives and business very seriously. As a child, we would play a game and ask for a do-over. An opportunity to learn from a mistake and re-enter the game with a new strategy. Today, COVID-19 presents an opportunity for a “do-over” where business owners can analyze their past mistakes and embrace a new approach to survive. Securieon was there to help them through that.
When he looks at the current business landscape, Tony believes social distancing is here to stay. He thinks there will be a lot less emphasis on in-person meetings for the next three to five years and his company is adjusting accordingly. They’re building and leveraging their technology and being more strategic on the time spent.
His advice for business owners is, you MUST empathize, connect, and lead with a renewed purpose.
“People need hope combined with strategy and decisive leadership,” said Tony. “Life is full of challenges and perplexing situations. In our line of work, you gotta love jigsaw puzzles! Founders need our expertise and years of experience to guide them through the process of fitting the right pieces together for their next move.”
We’re very excited to see our list of featured businesses growing! It’s nice to see so many businesses in the Towne Advisory circle innovating to survive and thrive.
