Deborah Brunner is the founder of Heroic Women Warriors & #1 Best Selling Author of “You Deserve This Not That”
During the coronavirus pandemic, staying home, avoiding public spaces, and working remotely are all important steps required to reduce the spread of the virus.

In fact, stay-at-home orders and shelter-in-place options have become life-threatening for many people; women and children in particular.
