Episode 77: The Shit Has Hit The Fan…What Now? How We’re Adapting & Shifting Our Business During This Time & Resources To Help Support You

In this episode of The Maker’s Collective Podcast we talk about, well, the shit hitting the fan. The COVID-19 pandemic has hit fast and hard and we’re all left trying to process, cope, and manage. We know how fortunate and privileged we are to still have work and to have safe homes to live in, so we also know that in this time it’s important for us to go back to our roots as a company. We need to be heart-centered, giving more than ever before. We need to listen and create a space for our community to feel safe to share and ask for whatever help looks like for them. 

Here are some of the resources we have available, some that the government has released, and some from members of our community:
