Humans are awesome!

There is no denying it, we are living in a challenging time and things do appear dark.
From the view point  of this great city of ours, you are witnessing a complete failure of federal leadership, gross incompetence on many levels, excessive greed by banks and large cooperations sucking up small business loans ( the irony!) , failure to pay out unemployment to deserving people… the list goes on.
Oh yeah, there is also a deadly disease out there. Details, details..


But then there is the other side which I shall loosely call the private sector.
From our end as a small company that struggles mightily at the moment, we have been overwhelmed by the support we received.
I shall list some examples in no particular order
  1. People from all over the world checking in on us with heartfelt messages
  2. Donations coming in from Australia to Alaska to ” keep the videos going, you guys stuff is awesome” Some even with a note ” I know its not much but I was laid off myself.” What do you say to that?
  3. Existing clients switching to virtual sessions  ( you still get the dry germanic humor!)
  4. We got the opportunity to design workouts and diets for those stuck at home
  5. Books and workouts being purchased.
  6. A gentleman reaching out along the lines ” I can help you with your app.” Being a jaded New Yorker, I immediately checked if my credit card was compromised.. but then the unthinkable happened: he came through! We will have an app soon!
So yes, the overall picture is not pretty but look for the rays of sunshine. They are there!
