A Clear Reminder

March 20, 2020

Since my update last week, COVID-19 has almost completely shut down the industry I work in during the 9-5. Starting Thursday afternoon, one-by-one virtually every ski resort in the country announced they would be closing for at least a week, but usually for the season.

And with those closures came a lot of uncertainty.

Will layoffs eventually have to happen if resorts can’t open again soon? Will hours get cut back? I have no idea what the answer is, but I know one thing: I’m less concerned that I would have been a few years ago.

Why? Well, there are a lot of reasons. But one of them, without a doubt, is SendView. This project has given me three things:

  • Confidence: that I have the skills to create revenue completely on my own
  • Income: we have a little coming in, so it’d be there if needed
  • Hope: it’d give me something to put my energy into rather than just worry

I hope we can pull through as a company and industry. I believe we can. But regardless of what happens in the short or long term, this little side-project – along with my savings, simple lifestyle, and a few other smart moves we’ve made – has given me a really comforting mental boost during a really strange time.

Hi, I'm Gregg.

I'm a SaaS marketer and maker.


Never heard of me? All good, these days I don't chase influence as much as I do balance. By day I run marketing for Inntopia and evenings see me building SendView or tinkering on games, but my happy place is playing in the mountains with my family.
