in March of 2020 it all changed. the townies were still living in the mountains of snowmageddon when the pandemic took hold.
setting up a sidewalk shop, teaching yoga online, and delivery to the door became the new normal for our companies, and community response played and continues to play a huge role in helping these companies survive the COVID-19 sideeffects.
there was mindset switch.
at guide the good, we zeroed in on minding our business - paying attention to what local companies were doing, understanding how local ecosystems work, and how they contribute to the community. choosing local became important like never before.
going local and being vocal was the word on the street - literally!
what's next? more surprises, no doubt! as we write this wrap-up, it seems like June 2020 has brought us more sunny days that the entire summer some years. let's hope the weather holds, and continue to #mindourbusiness as we get to explore this magnificent and make our way through the summer of 2020.
