Hey friends,
Popping in out-of-season with a special message for you during these uncertain times. COVID-19 has thrown us for a bit of a loop but WE are well positioned to deal with it. YOU are capable of rising to this challenge.

As entrepreneurs, we are capable of rising to this challenge and weathering this storm. We will do it better if we do it together and support each other. You are inherently up for a challenge - being an entrepreneur requires it! I know you have the creativity, drive, and determination to move through this.

I also want to remind you that the value of what you do is unchanged. Your work is still needed, wanted and valuable. Are things a little mixed up right now? Yes. Are people sorting out a new normal? Yes. Are you still allowed to market your product and not feel guilty doing so? Also yes.

Keep showing up, people are still looking for you.

It will not do anyone any good for you to recoil at this time. Keep showing up. If you can continue to do your work - do it.  

Let’s all give each other grace and understanding at this time. We are all going to work through this in a different way. For some, this is an opportunity to lean into business even more, and if that is how you are feeling now, we are here to support you.
