How to Cope During COVID-19 Quarantine

This blog post was originally supposed to be about Our Easter Outfit Picks but our Nation came under attack by a nasty virus that has literally shut everything down. In Louisiana, restaurants are only available for drive-through, schools and non-essential businesses are closed until further notice.

I am struggling and worried if my business can survive this shutdown. I am worried about my business, friends, and family. I am worried about other boutique owners. I am told that as a business owner that I shouldn't express my fear but encourage people to buy. I don't agree with that. I do agree that I should promote positivity, love, and self-care to get through this trying time. It is ok to show your concern because others have that same fear. It is ok to go stir crazy because you and your sweet blessings have been home for two weeks and cannot go anywhere. I reached out to Christy Pennison to help us navigate during this time.

There were days filled with tears and wonder, “How am I going to keep my store open if I can’t meet my daily goals?”
