No matter what’s going on in your corner of the world, I want you to know that I’m sending you love.

No matter how this global situation has affected you and your family, I want you to know that I’m thinking of you and our entire community.

Mike and I are committed to showing up in a way that contributes to this being a healing experience for all of us.

So, we recorded a new episode of The Kate & Mike Show for you where we shared:

  • How we’re navigating self-isolation (including some missteps and how we’re learning from them)
  • Five specific tips for tending to your nervous system during this time so you can signal your body to rest, restore, and heal instead of activate fight, flight, or freeze
  • Six steps to take stock of what’s happening and pivot your business in an effective, helpful way
  • Why giving away all of your stuff for free may or may not be the best thing to do right now as a business owner
  • The way we’re staying informed without freaking out
  • One perspective on this unprecedented time that’s bringing us a lot of peace and solace

If you need some healing thoughts during this uncertain time, this episode is for you.
