Change doesn't happen overnight. It's a long game.
When you started your business, you had a problem to solve and a mission to accomplish. Remember this:
- Your customers need you more than ever
- The problem you solve still exists
- Use your voice for good
- Support others
- Your work matters

Remind yourself of your why.

Let that be the thing that motivates you each day.
