How did you handle the pandemic? Did your business model change?

Pandemic was a complete shock that no one was prepared for. We closed on our new 60,000 SQ FT building for YDS headquarters on March 6, 2020, one week before the World pandemic began. We were so looking forward to a fantastic season with a plan to tremendously expand our business. The challenge to survive physically and emotionally was almost unbearable.

We believed the pandemic made us stronger, more endurable and creative as professionals.
