Episode Note

Today, I sit down with Lesa, a fellow EOS Implementer, as we go over what it feels like being on the frontlines during the ongoing COVID pandemic and trying to help businesses survive and stay in control. We ponder over the surprisingly good things that have come out of this crisis and how it has pushed companies to be better versions of their current selves and things we wish companies would keep doing when we slowly go back to normalcy.
