Episode #44, Coronavirus Fallout and Silver Linings, with Don Riling

Don Riling, owner of Olympic Hot Tub, joins Megan on the podcast to talk about COVID-19 and how it is impacting his Seattle business. Riling had to close all of his stores after the state issued a stay-home mandate, which meant laying off 16 people. Riling shares the techniques he’s using to continue to get hot tub sales despite his physical locations being closed and how he’s personally coping with the hardship.
