    084: Being Self-Employed During the Pandemic

    084: Being Self-Employed During the Pandemic

    As a self-employed entrepreneur going through this pandemic married to another self-employed entrepreneur, I’m hoping to help others in the same situation whether through just encouragement, advice or even camaraderie as right now things are so uncertain and unpredictable.
    Before I give my suggestions for getting through this time, I have to first say that I don’t have all the answers. If you would have asked me to share this a few weeks ago, I couldn't have because I hadn’t yet processed what we were going through. 
    But now in this episode, am sharing my own personal journey through this time as well as five things I’ve done and learned as to in hopes it can help you too!
