“This is certainly a difficult
time for all of us, both person-
ally and professionally. The
good news is this is the time
to shine, to be present, to
and to show
than I typical-
ly work during the fourth quar-
ter; however, I am so glad that
I can be the calm in my clients’
storm. This, too, shall pass!”

“During this strange and unique moment in history, allof us are hunkered down inside our homes, challengedby accepting, managing and dealing with the newnorms. A necessary shift must take place in order for usto focus on our mental, spiritual, and physical health.
“I designed ‘The Stress-Reduction Break’ to teach
and inspire positive, peaceful, and meaningful mo-
ments in our daily routines so we are unencumbered
by toxic anxiety. Through short conversations and guided meditation,
we learn to pause mentally and refresh. These sessions were originally
designed for my remote employer and employee teams; however, I decided
to revitalize the sessions to align with the current energy of the world at
large—mind, body and spirit—at a time when it is most needed and offer
them to nonprofit organizations, corporate companies, remote employees,
friends, family and my own team members to instill the spirit of courage,
unity, and support through this difficult pandemic. The goal for each ses-
sion is to decrease worries and angst and to guide listeners to a place of
peace and comfort, while offering important wellness advice.”

“Right now, thesimple things areespecially meaningful. Humor hasbeen a bright spot,and sharing a laughis a way to instantly connect. I’vealso tried to share honest, positivefeedback with others. A simple compliment can brighten a day and rightnow, I’m constantly reminded howimportant and valuable my relationships are. I want them to know that.”

“Amidst the obvious tragedy of this pandemic, Iam honestly more grateful than ever. This globalexperience has forced me to stop and smell theroses, as they say. To come face to face with thereality of what truly matters, and what does not.
To engage with my clients and their employeeson a much deeper level. To appreciate simplepleasures like a hug, a social event, a restaurant experience, a full paycheck, plenty of essential supplies, etc.
And, ironically, I’ve reconnected with so many fellow humans, andmy own inner spirit. It’s almost like I needed this peace and quiet toreset, recharge and reignite on a soul level. So, while I join the globein mourning the tremendous loss of life and prosperity, I am lookingforward with great enthusiasm to the other side of this thing.”
“The big thing that I feel we need to do right now for our clients is just be there forthem. Their worlds have been turned upside down and many are struggling to stayafloat. They are also getting bombarded with information from every corner of theearth. We try to be their ‘one source’ of correct and concise information.
“As with many agencies, we have placed a COVID- 19 tab on our website for futurereference. We are supporting our clients by gathering the information they need for theSBA loans and moving quickly when requests come in. As always, we are trying to takethe day-to-day burden off of the HR staff so they can focus on other business matters.
“Not sure we are doing anything that is rocket science, just trying to supporteach client in the manner that they need. For those we have not heard from, I have reached out one-on-one, toensure that they are doing OK. It’s going to be a rough go, but together, we can make it through.”
