During the recession, it was hard to keep the wheels on. While there were many months I didn't get paid, my employees always did, and we made it through. We have emerged stronger and more streamlined, ready to embrace the new market.
Our physical office (which is quite nice) is located in Cool Springs, but we are a VERY tech-savvy and virtual-supported company. Our employees can work effectively from anywhere. We use video conferencing, hosted software, low-paper use (mostly imaged) systems, and our employees use a top hosted VoIP phone system, allowing them to be "in office" from any location.
