Immediate Results. Long-Term Impact.

The COVID-19 pandemic has left our country and our economy shaken. Small businesses, the engine of job creation in the nation, have been hit hard – businesses located in low income areas or owned by people of color have been hit even harder.

There’s no time to waste. Cities need immediate and trusted programs to ensure their small businesses have the resources needed to stay operational, retain employees, and focus on recovery.

“…over 50% of small businesses with employees  face immediate or near-term risks due to the pandemic.” – The Brookings Institute

After class, I slept for the first time in ages…feeling like I have a plan of action and colleagues to reach out to again.


The last six weeks it has been head down in the weeds in a survival mentality but this week got my head more up and looking into the future.


I can’t stress enough how valuable it is for a small business owner like me to have a place to freely talk to other small business owners.


It’s been EXACTLY what I needed to get through the stress of these last few months and start planning ahead.
