Yes, I know, everyone is talking about it – in fact, Deb & Jess have both done videos on ‘how to deal with this as a handmade business owner’.
This is not that. This is a debrief.
In this episode, we open up about how COVID-19 is impacting our lives (there have some BIG changes for some of us, not so much for others).
This isn’t so much an advice episode as it is a ‘we’re all in this together’ episode – discussing how life will be different going forward, and how we’re going to cope with that.
Our biggest agreement was on the need to put away long-term plans right now, and just focus on today.
We’re thinking of you, and we hope you’re all safe and well!
~ Jess, Mik & Deb
