There’s a lot of information, webinars, tips, and ideas coming our way right now. Some is helpful, some is overwhelming, and a lot of it is just noise. I wanted to share some of the articles, podcasts, and resources I’ve found to be most helpful! Peruse if you’d like, delete if you’re feeling overwhelmed!
And speaking of being helpful, I’d really like to hear from you what would be most helpful for you during this time. Would you be willing to take this short survey? I’ll use that information to craft my upcoming content, webinars, and services. Thank you so much!
