As the challenges associated with COVID-19 continue to challenge all of us, IBN's top priority is to serve its members as we have always done. To that end, our private member Facebook community is a hotbed of discussion, resources, and comfort, and yes, even a little appropriate humor. As a virtual organization, IBN is uniquely positioned to serve as we always do with live events like one of our Indie Chats, a new episode of The Artisan Made Show, and Yoga Relaxation sessions.

If you are not a member, I invite you to join our supportive community of Makers and Handmade Entrepreneurs at this link. Below are some additional resources that may prove helpful as you lead your business through these unpredictable times. This page will be updated daily until this crisis is over. And … it will be over.
