When I left my corporate job in 2016 to go out on my own and start companies, I knew it would be a roller coaster and there would be pitfalls along the way.  That being said, I don’t think anything could have prepared us for what we are up against as an industry, country and world.  To say it is unprecedented is an understatement and it is certainly something that will define our world for years to come. 

When I look around my own little world, it has changed dramatically, and I’m sure everybody else’s has as well.  I have a wife that had to close her dental practice and lay off her employees.  I have 2 young kids that are now remote learning and have a new teacher called Mom.  I’m playing my best version of the lunch lady when the kids are hungry, and IT support for their Zoom meetings and virtual play dates.  I have my business partners spread out all over the country and I have no idea when I will get to see them in person again. 

All these life changes are temporary and small in the scale of what others are experiencing. They are especially small in relation to what our industry is going through.  I’m seeing first-hand the impact that this virus is having on our clients, friends, and business partners… and it is staggering.  As I’m sure many would agree, I wish I could do more to help.  I will continue to answer the call for whatever I can do to help the industry, my friends, and clients in this space. 

One of the things that I was thinking about the other night was our StatimRx solution and the benefits that it has right here and now during this pandemic.  One of my concerns about bringing this message to market was my concern that it may appear somewhat self-serving during a time of need and crisis.  That being said, our solution is more important now than it has ever been. 

Now, more than ever, it is critical that we get the right med to the right patient, at the right time.  That is StatimRx’s calling and it is what we do every single day.  The last thing we ever want to be is a roadblock or a second thought for you when you need to secure an emergency prescription or when you need a delivery made.  That is how we built StatimRx. 

This company was completely self-funded by a group of industry veterans (and friends) who saw an opportunity to solve complex problems in the marketplace. You will not find a more dedicated group of professionals to help you during this unprecedented time. 

Eventually this storm will pass and I for one can’t wait for that day!  In the meantime, we will continue to partner with our clients and build StatimRx and our other companies to serve the industry we love.  In the meantime, I hope everyone embraces this chaos as best you can and make the best out of family dinners together, homeschooling your kiddos, working on home projects and just making the best out of the worst. 

Be safe and be well!
