☝🏼 this. Seriously. Also, how to manage internal status updates and team comms. What’s most efficient and productive for associates and partners? Does any of this need to change with everyone working remotely, since a lot of this was communicated by email previously anyhow? I don’t have answers but my team (and others I’m sure) is struggling with this.

Fish Friends, what are the foods and recipes that you've started adopting in the COVID world? I'll start with my super easy flatbread pizza, improvised due to laziness and a lack of yeast and baking materials available. 2 cups of flour and a half cup of water. Add a pinch of salt and a drizzle of olive oil and knead. Then you just roll it out as thin as possible and add whatever you want! Anything! Bacon? Onions? Peppers? Mozzarella? Chuck the whole thing in a 500F oven for like 18-22 min.

How do you deal with back pain?
