Planting Seeds of Support, Collaboration During Intense Times

Are you being proactive during this time and reaching out to business colleagues via phone, text or email to just check in? 
I'm working on planting seeds with current and potential business colleagues. I'm also reaching out to businesses that I made a connection within the past year or so to see if we might be a good fit for new concepts. I've scored some opportunities that are a win-win for both businesses.
I'm also sending out emails to my retailers, not to ask for an order, but to check in and say hello hope you and your family are healthy and okay. People appreciate it.
Either way, your customers and other businesses will remember how you chose to communicate and navigate this challenging time, even if it was just a phone call to check in.
If you are not, tune into the whys. It is understandable that not every entrepreneur is ready to "move forward." There is a lot of sadness and grief being released. There is also a huge energetic "pause" being experienced by many that could be a "freeze fear." This is not a judgement, instead a checking in of where you are energetically.
It would be helpful for others to hear what you are doing in your business. I look forward to reading your comments.
