Support for Small Businesses During Coronavirus (COVID-19)

So, we’re in this for the long haul. 

Unless and until some miracle maker whips up a fantastic vaccination!

For this reason, I decided to look around for various tools, tech, services, and other types of support that are available for small business owners who are struggling with the current challenging times. 

Sure, we have the biggest spirits for the smallest businesses but we can all get some tangible support any day!

Real Support

Many larger organizations – offering both products and services have taken steps to support the smaller fish in the pond. Among them are tech giants such as Google, Microsoft, Amazon, and many more!

Take a sneak peek; here’s just ONE resource which includes a collection of support service provider for small businesses – Stand for Small.

This resource is actually meant for small biz owners in the US and therefore, some of these services may only be available for you lucky lucky small biz in the US. Fortunately, others would be available worldwide.

Worldwide Support

In the next few weeks, I would attempt to dig deep into some of these resources and list what’s available for all of us, all over the world.

And as I blog about each support service, I will update THIS post with links to each of them. So check back this post regularly over the next few weeks ;)
