Helping you navigate through this crisis

A message from Bill Rock, the president of MLR Media

As COVID-19 continues to spread around the world with devastating effects, first and foremost, we are focusing on the health, safety and wellbeing of our employees, families, customers and communities. As you know, we at MLR Media are a family business, and we recognize the dual challenges of keeping both the business and the family functioning well. The former requires a focus on customers, constant employee communication and vigilant management of cash; the latter requires compassionate understanding of family needs, issues and requirements.

Family Business Magazine remains committed to providing information, guidance and tools to help you navigate through this crisis. To that end, we are taking the following actions:

  • We will be fielding additional surveys and creating reports based on the results to help you better understand how family businesses are managing the crisis and planning beyond. 
  • And most importantly, we — like you — are maintaining a reasoned perspective. We know that this crisis will pass, and that we’ll be resilient and resolute in our mutual recovery. We remain very grateful for your support and committed to helping you through this crisis and beyond.

Best, 
Bill
