Hey T-REXers,

Last Monday we highlighted a handful of relief funding & economic support resources amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Here are a couple more to share:
  • The CARES Act Paycheck Protection Program is huge for small businesses by helping employers cover salaries through forgivable loans without having to lay-off staff. You can see more detailed highlights about this program in our Twitter thread.
  • Chris Kontes of Balto Software has put together a Missouri Tech Talent Help List. This database is designed to help both job seekers find their next position and for employers to have direct access to talented Missourians. If you are either hiring or looking for a new career during this time, head over to this Talent Help List. The SLBJ also is continuing to feature a number of companies still hiring.

While we've been focused on providing resources for physical and economic health lately, it's vitally important that we all look after our community's mental health as well. Here are a few guiding words & ideas for individuals and small teams that we've found helpful these last few weeks:
  • Find Your Routine
    It's ok to find your own schedule that works for you. Being well is our world's priority right now, not maximum productivity from home. Take the time you need to step away. Do laundry, tend to plants - find your own balance. Programs like 1 Million CupsVirtual Venture Cafe, & Bourbon Friday help keep regularity in our community, or look forward to a new episode of a favorite podcast series (psst...more on that to come!)
  • Stay Connected
    Check in with loved ones and team members, even if it's just to share what you're cooking for dinner or what you saw on your walk. A group video chat 'happy hour' is a great way to get friends and family together. And if any T-REXers need help setting up a Zoom gathering, absolutely feel free to reach out to our team by replying to this email.
  • Make Some Headspace
    Headspace is a mindfulness startup offering free science-based exercises and other resources catered towards employers to help us and our teams weather this storm. Download the Headspace App for free daily Wake Up mini-lessons that focus on appreciating small everyday moments of presence and peace.
All the Best,
T-REX Staff
