Poughkeepsie Life Coaching Business Goes Online Amid Closures

POUGHKEEPSIE, NY — Cicely G., owner of REGARD 4 VIRTUES in Poughkeepsie, said online and by-phone client meetings are keeping her busy amid coronavirus-related closures, but she's looking forward to a time when she can reopen for meetings by appointment.

REGARD 4 VIRTUES offers personal, organizational, business and educational development through prearranged meetings, webinars, podcasts and more. The business falls into Gov. Andrew Cuomo's second phase of businesses.

Cicely G. said the mandatory closure of her business has had an impact not only on her business, but also on her clients. She said her clients are largely businesses, and a lack of resources has prevented them from engaging in her seminars, workshops and retreats.

"The priority now is rent, food, etc," she said.

Cicely G. has held strong through the closure by providing services online instead of in-person. Those interested in learning more, she said, can visit her website to learn more.

"I give daily complimentary meditations to everyone, all the time, any day of the week," she said. "I work with any and all situations as it relates to finances. Please do not let money be an obstacle."
