What’s your favorite way to pass the time during self-quarantine?:
Personally, I have been passing the time with card games, movies, and walks around the neighborhood. OpenSesame is also doing a great job of enabling our employees to socialize via webcam with daily activities like meditation exercises, stretching and yoga sessions, a virtual lunchroom, and even guided house tours!
What’s one thing that helps you stay positive or gives you hope during difficult times?:
The collective effort by the community and many companies to proactively take steps to reduce the spread of the virus has given me hope that this will pass and we will come out stronger on the other side.
