As a small business owner, I weigh the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic daily as it has crippled my business. I have worked nearly 70 hours a week over the last 10 years to build what I have. Literally, overnight, my business has stalled and is unable to keep up with the economical changes that have arisen. I hear such contradicting information on the news. Some say the economy is doing good. However, what I see tells a different story. Everyone I speak to has been affected in one way or another. It is imperative to help your local small businesses in whatever fashion you can. The long-lasting effects of what this looks like are completely unknown. As an owner of a business, not only do I worry about my own personal finances, but I am also responsible for thinking of those who I employ. I’d be lying if I said that this doesn’t play a role in the health of my psyche. With so much unknown, it’s hard to make plans for what the next steps look like. Upward and onward – I have to continue pushing through. If you are in a situation like our own, we are here to help. If you or your business needs anything, we will help fight this with you. We are in the same boat as you are and we want to support other businesses in our community experiencing the same.
