Sorry to hear that SC. Wishing you the best and don’t be scared. Things will get better. Just give it some time.

I am about to start business now. On the contrary I think it’s the best time to start. What. Kind of b did you start ?

Just curious why did you keep the SC title at your new company? Wishing you the best in these tough times.
