Times are hard and don’t look like they’re going to get much easier soon.
I have many of friends who have their own businesses. And many of those businesses are suffering badly during this ongoing crisis. They are having to make big and often expensive changes to try to stay afloat.
And I also see so many local people who have had to figure out new ways of making ends meet.
Many individuals who before now had part-time side gigs, have turned those side gigs into full-time jobs – they have become entrepreneurs, selling a truly impressive variety of goods and services, from handmade candles or jams and jellies, to cosmetics, to food preparation and delivery.
I see the ads on Facebook for home businesses increasing exponentially.
