When the first lockdown hit this country, Kiwi tech firm Joy Business Academy lost a monthly revenue stream of a million dollars, overnight.
At the same time, CEO James Coddington had 46 staff wanting to know if they still had a job.
So what did he do?
He went to the bank and asked for a million dollars to cover their wages for six months.
What happened next is the amazing story of what his staff then did for him.
Joy Business Academy CEO James Coddington joined Heather du Plessis-Allan on Bosses Rebuilding to discuss his story.
