Community Care

Resources to legally protect your community + biz.

We’re In This TogeTher

All of us at #TeamBeingBoss are committed to providing you with the support you need to create and grow your dream business(es). That means we show up to provide resources and facilitate boss conversations all about business. But being boss is about more than doing the work in your business. It’s also about crafting your dream life and community with self-care and intentional actions.

The recent Supreme Court decision impacts our entire Community in one way or another and we understand that it’s hard to stay focused when things feel this overwhelming. In addition to taking some extra time to process and rest, we find that actions, whether big or small, can help to alleviate feelings of stress and anxiety. Plus, those actions can really add up to create the kind of change you want to see.

This is also a reminder that behind the scenes there have been some updates to laws and policies that may affect your business(es). It’s important to stay informed in the ever-changing landscape of entrepreneurship and small business. As Emily said in episode 285, “If you want to show up and do business, you have to cover yourself legally.”

This week’s links contain important resources to help you take care of your business and your community in whatever way you currently need or that feels right for you. And remember, we’ve got your back, boss.
