Another week of lockdown: some with harder rules, while other communities are opening up. Here is some Friday inspiration for you.
How are you doing this week? For some of us, extended lockdowns and uncertainty, for others, a relaxation of the rules. Some of us spend our lives in endless zoom meetings, some caring for friends and family. Life is speeding by and tediously slow simultaneously. All we know is, we wish we were drinking rosé in Nyon these days. Have a great weekend, we’ll be adding new consultation events early next week. Keep connected everyone!
Some interesting links from around the web:
