Hello Creative Rebooters!

WTAF is going on?

Welcome to episode 2.5, an emergency episode in response to the coronavirus emergency – aka the f***ing coronavirus episode, where we’ve woken up inside a dystopian novel, everything has fallen apart very quickly and everyone is in a state of panic.

In the UK, we’re now in lockdown; Canada has closed its borders. There are whole swathes of people working from home for the first time, and many small businesses are in crisis, so we thought what the world needs is a dose of our silliness, common sense and most importantly some practical advice.

A key thing to remember – done is better than perfect!
