When the 6 day lockdown ended in 3 days - what were you thinking and feeling?
Wendy Perry
23:39
I had so many more jobs to get done
Emma
23:50
Interestingly I had pivoted to temporarily make and sell facemasks. Then, they were no longer mandatory...
Wendy Perry
23:52
Enjoyed the peace and quiet getting things done around the house

I thought - well done Adelaide! but I'm still quarantining because I for takeaway 😅
Graeme Crook

Hesitant as I didn't believe that the authorities really had a good handle of things
Wendy Perry
24:28
Felt for many of those businesses who had to throw out products and shut their doors

I work from home any way. For some of my clients I was still maintaining their websites. For another client they had time to get content to me for their new website.I felt for retail businesses and food businesses.

I had planned to create some new things for my business in the 6 days and haven’t had the chance to do the things yet
Graeme Crook
27:24
As I have mostly worked from home for the past 5 1/2 years I really have not had an issue throughout the whole pandemic

For me, it was about putting the reality into perspective. I was very reflective about what I could control vs. what I could not and then adapted accordingly always keeping the long term goals in my focus. I reevaluate each day.
Wendy Perry
27:36
What happened with your customers?
Wendy Perry
27:58
We went ahead and cancelled a number of events
Wendy Perry

What did you need to do?

Real estate agents are saying sales of property is Adelaide have significantly increased
Emma
28:58
I had not launched yet, early launch meant a different target group of customers, than originally intended. I bit the bullet and launched.

Yes housing, rental and buying property seems to be challenging in terms of stock on the market
Graeme Crook

Having relied on short-term contracts for paid work while developing my business, the lack of opportunity and the increased competition for anything has greatly reduced my earnings

I had to pivot from live events to online services, and consulting

I found keeping up to date really hard. Especially since I don't have the radio or news on when I'm working.

My largest market was meant to be on all weekend, but was cancelled last week. I set up a pop-up shop for customers, but as there was only a day or so’s notice most people didn’t find out in time I had the pop-up shop. At least the 1 customer is happy!

also I applied for a few grants, and got a couple 🎉

As a zoologist, I have been involved with viruses for over forty years in many forms. What we had in SA was not a Second Wave, merely a blip.
Heather Falckh

Interesting about some businesses needing to wind up. What are the main considerations in deciding to wind up (other than financial)?
Heather Falckh
43:46
Mask sales will depend on demand. We have a friend making masks who was flooded with requests on Wed - she sold all her spare stock and spent the next few days madly trying to fill orders. Hopefully we don't have another public health scare but if we do, you can position to be ahead of the curve

My daughter in Geelong has been very busy since the lockdown in Victoria as people have had much more time to look at where they are and where they want to be

I did some volunteer work for a Church - surveyed a sample of congregational members and finalised the report in the last few days. Interesting improvement ideas. Church doesn't suit most "younger" people in our society now and Churches have known this for a long time. The pandemic is hastening a complete re-think about what worship and developing faith can be.

@luana The market that might be on this weekend is at the Estonian Hall. A Baltic Market, but they haven’t advertised at all.
Suzanne Phillips
52:53
Thank you @Penny. I can’t wait to photograph you too! I even have a fun seasonal background if you want something different! ;)
Luana Audio

I heard on the radio QLD people have to go into quarantine if they come here.
