In light of the recent deaths of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor (and so many more before them), our society is now at an inflection point that cannot, and should not, be denied. Before any social posting or usual content sharing can go on, I feel compelled to express that Healthy Women Leaders stands for 100% equality for Black people everywhere. We stand for the Black Lives Matter movement.
Unlike our generation’s biggest challenges of the past, including 9/11 and the 2008 financial crisis, COVID-19 has required us to look in the mirror and evaluate the strength and resilience of our own bodies. This pandemic made our vulnerability to the world’s biggest problem very personal because it questioned whether our physical habits are putting our bodies in the optimal position to survive.
It is no surprise the travel industry was one of the hardest hit industries in the pandemic we are all facing. Since February I have found myself spending a lot more time re-booking clients’ dream trips to next year than creating new ones. We have all had to shift, pivot and get creative to keep our lives and businesses going. It feels like we've gone backwards from thriving to surviving.
