In this time of social distancing and lockdown along with the rise of remote work and Zoom sessions, we can’t forget another pandemic….




As most of you are aware, we are in a time where just about everyone in the world is connected to a device. Whether it’s a cell phone, laptop, desktop, tablet, or other device, most of us find it easier to send a quick message to someone rather than speak to them face to face (and that was before the pandemic!)


Deep down, we know that this is not how communication is supposed to be.
