Now SenseMaker Project Story or Micro-Narrative
My Personsal experience after losing 100% of my small Fitness business, I intially started to shutdown and feel slightly depressed. After about 2 weeks of just sitting around the house doing nothing (except trying to apply for unemployment). and not going out. I knew that I could not continue on this path. I started reaching out to my contracted business partners offering to partner together to conduct online classes, with them as the financial supporter. At that time, I was familiar with ZOOM platform, but had not never created or hosted an event or meeting myself. I took time to get more familiar with the tool (as I knew it would need to become my new best friend).I invited some friends to take a TEST class to give constructive feedback and my new online business was birthed. I learned that Covid 19, although challenging, but not a hopeless time and that it is an opportunity for some to reinvent themselves virtually, if only for during Covid season!
