“Being a small business owner in Virginia has been an honor and a privilege these past 2 years ❤️ However, being a business owner also means that you never really “clock out” — answering text messages, DM’s, and collaboration emails at 3am become your new normal 🤷🏼‍♀️ [ad] and I wouldn’t want it any other way, because the success of my business is my main priority! I’ve poured my heart & soul into my platform and I wouldn’t change any of the ups & downs for the world 🙌🏼 (ya know, cause #selfgrowth) BUT, life happens and small business owners can’t be “on” 24/7 — I am here to discuss the importance of paid sick leave for our small business owners (like myself) in the state of Virginia! Right now, Virginia employees are not guaranteed paid sick leave… and as the pandemic continues, the need for it is essential. We want Virginians to 🗣 and show the Commonwealth, and the thousands of business owners within it, that these policies are important to our workers, families, & for businesses ❤️”
