104 - Isolation & Your Voices

Updated: May 19


In This Episode…

We feel all the feelings as the challenges weigh on us as individuals. We listen to your Voice Memos and answer a question regarding job cancellations and how to handle cancellation fees with a direct-to-client project. We discuss the AICP Guidelines as industry standards. We also cover the CA and NYC "Safer at Home" mandate, and why it's different from "Shelter in Place" or "Lockdown". AdAge sent an e-blast that announced they are lifting the pay wall on their Coronavirus related updates, plus 3x live updated blogs with important industry information. Freelancers' Union president, Rafeal Espinal posted a blog about his plea to NY State Officials to include freelancers in their financial relief packages. Christian discusses volunteer opportunities with the NYC Medical Reserve Corps. Lawrence offers some at-home entertainment.
