Stop Selling and Start Serving

We have a long, hard road ahead to recover from COVID-19. It is staggering how quickly our world has changed over these past 3 months as we all fight to survive a global pandemic. The threat is real and the amount of fear and uncertainty that has infiltrated our daily lives in ways we had never expected and clearly there is more to come. In the same breath, I am inspired by the sense of humanity, kindness, and community that has surfaced. While the way we function as a society will never be the same, we have an opportunity to rethink and redefine who we are and what we build for the “what’s next.”
