So, this world, huh. It seems a little strange and to be quite honest, inappropriate, to talk about marketing when so much of the world is dealing with a pandemic. Instead of writing about straight-up marketing in the coming issues, I’ll aim to just write… I won’t promise it’ll always be about marketing. I hope you stick with me.
Since my last issue send, San Francisco (where I live) has gotten increasingly severe in its restrictions and guidelines regarding COVID-19. I went to the store a few times to stock up on goods. Today is day 2 of three weeks of the mandatory shelter-in-place order. I have seen my friends close their cafes, friends get laid off, friends lose all of their income, and friends deal with working from home.
I don’t want to say that we’ll get through this together because in reality, some of us won’t. Instead, I hope you’re all doing the best you can, supporting those around you if you’re able, and that you’re taking all the steps to flatten the curve. 💜
