I've watched the devastation that cleaning companies face due to the COVID-19 pandemic. I've listened to all sides of the quarantine argument and I'll tell you this... when Corona hits your loved ones and you get a gut punch, your perspective changes. It's one thing to feel the pain of the financial strain and only hear of the health strain many face from Corona. It's an entirely different thing to feel the pain of a loved one fighting for their life in the hospital with the disease. That was me this week. And it's my mom. Not to mention, my step dad and 2 of my sisters have tested positive and been through torture. I am not advocating that we keep our country in lock down forever, but I am so much more empathetic to those that have dealt with this virus on a human level and understand what they've been going through. Please take a moment and be thankful that you're only problem is financial compared to what others are dealing with.
At the end of this episode, I shared a great quote from my Grandma Shellie (from You Eat With Your Eyes). When I asked her if she was staying safe, her answer rocked me.
"Kenny, I don't practice social distancing. I practice physical distancing. We need to stay connected socially. That's the way I'm built."
I think we all need a little dose of that!
"Helping cleaning professionals make the impact they were meant to make."
