During a trying time like the COVID-19 pandemic, we were all met with shock, discomfort, sadness, anxiety, and uncertainty. I am no exception. My anxiety flared with all the concerns of family, friends, and humanity.
It can be difficult to talk about the positive things during a crisis, as I feel (along with all of you I'm sure) that it can feel like its not the right time. Out of respect for the brave doctors, nurses and medical staff who are fighting this battle. Out of respect for those suffering a loss during a pandemic.
A crisis such as a pandemic has its butterfly effect. And one of these effects being, many businesses will struggle. Our economy will struggle.
As we power on and try to keep the world moving, we find comfort in happy moments and supporting each other through various ways of connecting. A week ago ELLE UK published an article online which supports 100 independent businesses. 100 business which could use a little support during the COVID - 19 pandemic. It is the small independent businesses that pave the way for new endeavors and inspiration to others to pursue a dream of starting a business themselves.
I am beyond honored to be named alongside 99 other amazing independent designers/businesses, which were chosen to be highlighted. I am proud of LEON NORD. My deepest gratitude to ELLE UK for sharing the love with small business owners and helping us shine some light.
