Wow.

I don’t have to say it, but we are all feeling it right now.

I keep asking myself, “How did we get here?”

Like everyone right now, I understand that everything is scary, challenging and uncertain.

Trust me, I am right there with you.

With everything changing so rapidly and so many people feeling displaced and scared, I want to share some of things I’ve found that can help you prepare what is likely to happen after the quarantine is lifted.

Businesses will change.

Life will change.

How we interact with each other will change.
