Coronavirus and Politics

Some politicians are using Coronavirus to sell their name and gain popularity. It is very unfortunate. It is a time to unite and help each other. I do not like any business trying to make money by using Coronavirus.

It is a time to save lives. Not sell the name or make money.

It I snot much but we are buying lunch from local restaurants. That are doing their best stay business. We thank them for that.

Business Owner’s Minds

You started your own business. You grew your business. You took care of all of the problems. You hire the people you need. You let go of the people you do not need. You have to weather all of the ups and downs. So now, you are facing a new challenge (you always do). Do you want to go out and ask for someone who has never spend a minute at your company to tell you what to do? I don’t think so. I am sure we can find the solution within our company.

In short, this is how most entrepreneurs think, and most of the time you are correct. You do not need someone outside to tell you what to do because you are not the same as other companies. Things that worked for one company may not necessarily work for you. You have different products, services, and style of business.

So how do you hire someone to help you? The answer is very simple, you hire someone when your business is doing well. You hire someone to streamline what you do or tackle new business opportunities. Not when you are having problems. Don’t think a Superman will come and solve all of your problems. That is your job.

Washington State ... Stay Home Order

Governor Inslee Governor Inslee
March 23, 20201On March 23, 2020, Governor Inslee issued an Executive Order directing all residents immediately to heed current State public health directives to stay home, except as needed to maintain continuity of operations of essential critical infrastructure sectors and additional sectors as the State Public Health Officer may designate as critical to protect health and well-being of all Washingtonians.

In accordance with this order, the Governor has designated the following list of “Essential Critical Infrastructure Workers” to help state, local, tribal, and industry partners as they work to protect communities, while ensuring continuity of functions critical to public health and safety, as well as economic and national security.

So, the question is, "Is PSPinc an Essential Critical Infrastructure Work?"


Sector Profile

The Communications Sector provides products and services that support the efficient operation of today’s global information-based society. Communication networks enable people around the world to contact one another, access information instantly, and communicate from remote areas. This involves creating a link between a sender (including voice signals) and one or more recipients using technology (e.g., a telephone system or the Internet) to transmit information from one location to another.Technologies are changing at a rapid pace, increasing the number of products, services, service providers, and communication options. The national communications architecture is a complex collection of networks that are owned and operated by individual service providers. Many of thisMarch 23, 20209sector’s products and services are foundational or necessary for the operations and services provided by other critical infrastructure sectors. The nature of communication networks involve both physical infrastructure (buildings, switches, towers, antennas, etc.) and cyber infrastructure (routing and switching software, operational support systems, user applications, etc.), representing a holistic challenge to address the entire physical-cyber infrastructure.

The IT Sector provides products and services that support the efficient operation of today’s global information-based society and are integral to the operations and services provided by other critical infrastructure Sectors. The IT Sector is comprised of small and medium businesses, as well as large multinational companies. Unlike many critical infrastructure Sectors composed of finite and easily identifiable physical assets, the IT Sector is a functions-based Sector that comprises not only physical assets but also virtual systems and networks that enable key capabilities and services in both the public and private sectors.
