At this moment in time, we are filled with gratitude for the many people we've come to know through our work as a source of empowerment and connection for today's payments professionals. When faced with the challenges today presents, not just to our sector, but the world, the people we have the pleasure of doing business with remind us what a difference each of us can make by doing one positive thing at a time. By focusing on taking realistic steps that make sense to our individual situations, collectively, we can accomplish a great deal.
This issue's lead article shares another segment of insights from members of The Green Sheet Advisory Board about what they are doing for their own businesses, their merchants and their communities to adapt and thrive during the COVID-19 pandemic. We hope their thoughts will resonate with you and encourage you to take actions that make sense for now and for the post-pandemic future.
We also hope you'll find useful nuggets of wisdom in the articles from our contributing writers. Issues and topics they explore include how the innovators' mindset of many fintechs led to their ability to effectively provide immediate help to their customers and partners when businesses needed to adapt quickly to changing conditions due to the pandemic; innovations occurring in the restaurant POS sector in response to mandatory suspension of dine-in service in many locales; and the logic and behind focusing on 90-day goals rather than annual goals. And if you're looking for an additional boost, check out this issue's Inspiration, and get cracking on crafting your unique company or professional story.
