If you’re reading this post, I’m sending you a virtual hug. I see you, I feel you, I’m with you—riding this shaky wave. This past month has been a whirlwind. It has injected fear, anxiety, and stress (to name a few) into the hearts of small business owners everywhere. But that fear, anxiety, and stress? It’s not welcome around here, friend. We are resilient. YOU are resilient.
The small business territory intrinsically comes with its own set of challenges that we as entrepreneurs take on—that’s a certainty and for many of us, that risk is welcomed because the reward is sweeter. But the current challenges we’re faced with have been sharp, abrupt and unexpected. So, how do we navigate in the days and weeks ahead? How do we embody resilience? We lean on one another, we show up for one another, we show love and support and we put one. foot. in. front. of. the. other. Thankfully, we’re surrounded by some incredibly talented women who have shared the most helpful resources and we couldn’t dare keep them to ourselves. Take a peek below! If you have any additional resources that have been helpful to you, please share in the comments—you might be able to help even just one person.
