What's happening to our businesses today during this pandemic is a lot like what happened to me when I got that double brain injury a few years ago. So when I spoke with Mandy Balak in the green room, this is how I explained it to her.
Project Lemons-to-Lemonade is actually just to bring hope honestly. When I came up with the idea, I was thinking, oh my goodness, this is just like my brain injury.
I remember thinking that the only way I turned things around for me was when I finally started to have hope… because there was a while where I couldn’t read, my eyes weren’t working, I couldn’t remember stuff, and I couldn't talk properly.
After everything went down on March 15, 2020, I thought about all those entrepreneurs and medium-sized business owners who were impacted the most. They’re the ones who hire a ton of people.
So I thought, I need to do something, and I’m really big on building communities. I thought I would reach out to all the people I’ve met over the last 10 - 20 years and ask them to share their knowledge.
So one of the things that I did when I had the two brain injuries was that I started teaching, because it just makes me feel so good to help.
The idea is to share as much knowledge and teach as much as we can because we need to work together, and we need to help each other.6 months ago
