Our world has abruptly changed. Collectively and individually we are all feeling it. Extraordinary times invite deepening of mutual care and community collaboration.
As we brave the unknown territory, we will benefit from new tools along with reinventing old ones to assist in our journey. Win-win barter is an attractive, time-tested tool in a cash-crunched economy. At the same time, the greater the diversity of tools in our toolkits, the easier we can all thrive together, stay resilient, and use our unique abilities to help others.
To multiply the ways in which you flourish in this new reality, we have put together a resource list of 40 nuggets, including various resource hubs, for your entrepreneurial mind, body, emotions, heart, spirit, plus tools to protect your money.
We are making this into a “living list”. As you share your nuggets with us, we will add more resources for the community. Thank you for all your contributions!
