09 Apr FE: In the Pink
There’s something in the way I wanna cry
That makes me think we’ll make it out alive
So come on and show me how we’re good
I think that we could do some good, mhm…~Pink
We’re keeping it real here as we go through a range of life changes and challenges during these weeks at home. It’s OK to pause and take a deep breath…to unplug and deal with things day-to-day. There’s a lot of noise out there when you start listening to all the comments about being bored. What if we found our own ways to shine through this noise?
I am still working about 50 hours per week with a paid B2B culinary client. I recently named their resource center (Spark Central and the portal Spark Hub). They have been able to refocus many of their marketing tools to work well for their internal team. Sure, many of the trade shows in the food industry are postponed. In fact, the NRA (restaurant) show was postponed because the largest convention center in the U.S. was repurposed as a COVID-19 field hospital with 500 beds now in place (McCormick Place in Chicago, IL).
Put practical advice in play
Invest in yourself for 30 minutes and think about how you could shift your skills to be effective now and in the springtime. Journaling is a great stress reliver. Have your play book from some of our earlier blogs?

“This book certainly teaches you how to do that. It’s reminiscent of Deepak Chopra, but more pragmatic. A message similar to Tony Robbins, but more specific and high-brow…”
What if we listened to some of those getting better?
Pink said a huge thank you to the medical staff all over and even added that they are the real heroes. ‘THANK YOU to all of our healthcare professionals and everyone in the world who are working so hard to protect our loved ones. You are our heroes! These next two weeks are crucial: please stay home. Please. Stay. Home,’ Pink shared on Instagram.
Pink even mentioned the amount as well as the name of the hospital that she is making a donation to. She wrote, ‘In an effort to support the healthcare professionals who are battling on the frontlines every day, I am donating $500,000 to the Temple University Hospital Emergency Fund in Philadelphia in honor of my mother, Judy Moore, who worked there for 18 years in the Cardiomyopathy and Heart Transplant Center. Additionally, I am donating $500,000 to the City of Los Angeles Mayor’s Emergency COVID-19 Crisis Fund.’
“It is an absolute travesty and failure of our government to not make testing more widely accessible. This illness is serious and real. People need to know that the illness affects the young and old, healthy and unhealthy, rich and poor, and we must make testing free and more widely accessible to protect our children, our families, our friends and our communities….” ~Pink
