In the midst of this COVID-19 pandemic, many businesses are faced with having to close their doors in the spirit of not further spreading this terrible virus that is devastating to us globally.
This morning I was listening to Good Morning America (GMA) as a part of my normal routine (I know, life is anything but normal right now), & one of my favs – Rachel Hollis – was on streaming live from her home, along with her husband, and had some great advice that I felt was worth filling your in-box with today.

There are many different types of business ownership. A business owner can be a passive owner, meaning that they have made the financial investment in the business but rely on a general manager to fully manage it. Or there is semi-passive ownership.

Finally, there are owner-operators who make the financial investment and work in the business day-in-and-day-out managing all aspects of its operations and having a daily presence. This is how Michelle & I have run Burst. As owner-operators.
