You are not alone

We live in uncertain times. If you don’t know when you’re going to get a job, or your business is faltering, or you’ve lost your job, it’s very natural to be anxious, worried and afraid.

We just want to say, ‘you are not alone’. At, we are really concerned about the impact that recent upheavals are going to create on people’s lives, and want to create a support structure.

One part of the support structure is to be armed with knowledge. This blog is where we’ll share knowledge that will make your struggle a little easier.

If you have something to share that can help others, please reach out and contribute.
