Leading Through Crisis
Business women don’t have it easy these days. COVID-19 crisis is impacting the economy nationally and globally and many of us are now juggling family and household responsibilities without having normal support systems like schools, activities and play dates in place. Adding the responsibility of running and maintaining a business is only possible if we decide to focus on the RIGHT priorities.
Moderated by Silvia Pencak, three certified WBEs came together for a panel discussion on how to innovate, adapt and even thrive during this time of business upheaval. Join Katie Tingley (The Tingley Advantage), Kim Ades (Frame of Mind Coaching), and Ann Gomez (Clear Concept Inc.) for frank, constructive and engaging conversation.
Join us to…
- Connect with like-minded leaders and business owners who face similar challenges and obstacles
- Move from feeling overwhelmed to being effective in the midst of disruptions and juggling work and life without traditional support systems
- Get inspired to remain creative and proactive in the midst of crisis
- Step up your game to become a game changer and inspire others to be and do more
- And much more

RESOURCE #4: Journaling Service
Today, we are inviting you to join our journaling service for free… so that you can share how you are doing. We have created a unique journaling environment dedicated entirely to you. Share with us how you are coping, how your family is doing and what challenges or perhaps what growth opportunities you are facing. You will be able to journal privately and/or share your journals with the rest of this Journaling Community. You will be able to comment on the journals of other community members and allow others to comment on yours. Our team of FOM-Certified Coaches are also in the group, participating as members.
We invite you to share your thoughts, your feelings, your fears, your hopes, and your experiences. We invite you to reach out if you need support and we invite you to step up and support others in the community if they need it. This is an important time in history where connection is crucial. We invite you to connect.
Beyond anything, we really want to make it clear that our doors and our resources are open to each and every one of you.
