Frances reveals many personal aspects in this podcast episode. She outlines the silver linings that occurred for her during hard lockdown in Melbourne due to Covid 19, and the effect it’s had on her life and her studio. A very personal story.  For those renovating or building on 2021, she outlines a myriad of free resources available to boost your knowledge over the holiday season, in preparation for 2021. Finally, she also outlines plans for 2021, to assist her community (you) even more.    SHOWNOTES:  Silver Lining to Covid-19  When Melbourne went to a hard lockdown, Frances found silver linings amidst the Covid 19 pandemic. It normalised remote work and what that might mean for the team. She got to remote working with team members working from home. It gave her insight into the possibilities available on a larger scale. Ultimately, it meant that when a key team member moved interstate, the option to remain working in the team was there, with both parties wanting it to work.   With process and systems in place, Frances and her team were able to continue serving their clients remotely. For instance, showing the specifications through video allows clients to view the material specification in their own time and the opportunity to talk about it together as a family. This process allows Frances and her team to serve lots of different clients in lots of different ways.   Having 4 months in hard lockdown allowed Frances to slow down and figure out what really mattered to her. It enabled her to take some rest each weekend, and start engraining new routines to slow down into her life. Every Saturday she would read the newspaper (along with a cheeky snooze) and stopped feeling guilty about it. She also developed good connections with friends, with a daily morning walk, engraining new routines that started in lockdown, and maintaining those post lockdown. A  Resources   Are you thinking about a renovation or new build in 2021?   Frances outlines are stack of free resources available to you to update and increase your knowledge over the holiday period.
