Staying Present For Your Business When Facing the Unknown

I got the call at 1:37 in the afternoon last week.

It was from my Dad.

He was calling from his mobile and something was wrong, I could feel it.

You are stuck, and it feels thick and heavy.

I see you.

I know how hard it can feel sometimes to come up with something compelling to write about.
