  • You should NOT feel bad about continuing to grow your business during this time.
  • It’s important to not look at this time as business owners as a time to hide, but a time to show up MORE.
  • We all benefit when more money is exchanged, and it’s counter productive to hide.
  • You have a choice: you can continue to focus on the lack, or you can look for the opportunity.

  • Focus on what YOU can control.
  • Don’t let external circumstances stop you from showing up in your business.

    • The Economic Injury Grant 
    • The Payroll Protection Program
  • Your mindset during this time is HUGE.
