This is the 2nd episode of COVID Break, a new show that we started to help small business owners affected by the lockdown due to the Coronavirus outbreak.
Thousands and thousand of businesses across the world have been forced to shutdown, not only stressing out many entrepreneurs — but their employees too.
And that’s why I decided to create these online discussions — with both freelancers and small business owners — so that together, we can support each other as we go through this crisis.
