Has your business been affected by the fires? These resources can help

In January 2019, I wrote the most difficult Flying Solo article I’d ever written.

In January 2020, there are difficult times again, this time experienced by thousands of people in Australia. Bushfires are burning our country, wreaking havoc in a multitude of ways. Fire fighters and other first responders (for both people and animals) are working tirelessly amidst extreme conditions and bone-aching exhaustion. Thousands of residents have been displaced, many have lost their homes, some have lost their lives. Millions of animals have perished, whole habitats have been scorched. 

It’s a sombre start to the New Year, the new decade. 

If you are directly or indirectly affected by the fires, I’m so sorry. I’m thinking of you. 

Aside from sharing thoughts, here are some links that may assist.
