Friday, June 2nd is National Donut Day! The origins of National Donut Day are traced to the Salvation Army’s involvement in World War I. Volunteers were dispatched to the frontlines with the mission of providing comforting meals for the troops. They realized that donuts were an effective way to provide food while navigating dire circumstances. These brave volunteers would later be known as “donut lassies.” Whether you eat donuts or not, how do you determine “dire” circumstances in your business? What signs tell you that it’s time to re-strategize? What do you do to take care of your employees? Does “time to make the donuts” resonate with how you feel on some mornings? Grab a coffee or tea, and a donut, and let’s discuss! Register to join CEI Women’s Business Center Biz Fit Zoom June 2nd from 8-9 am.
