What a difference a year makes! A year ago today we announced that we were closing our doors until April 3rd. Little did we know we would remain closed until May 15.
We relied upon all of our mental toughness skills to survive the unknown and unknowable of the developing global pandemic. We could never have predicted how this would challenge us and provide a robust opportunity to develop into better humans, better business owners. better spouses, better friends and better leaders. Thanks COVID, you gave us an opportunity to become better!
