Designated as a world-wide pandemic in early March, the effects of COVID-19 are touching all of our lives with far reaching implications as the edges of our personal and professional lives begin to blend together; a direct result of ‘shelter in-place’ orders and the shuttering non-essential workplaces. Greg provides amazing information on these vital SBA related programs aimed at helping small business and self-employed individual weather the COVID-19 storm.
