If you haven’t heard about it yet, check out ifundwomen.com. This website promotes supporting women and their venture and business ideas and offers a pretty penny of free money to do so. I believe the smallest grant amount they offer is $10,000, but visit the site to double check. I don’t want to mislead anyone.
Speaking of, has anyone heard back from the LISC organization? Where you approve for any of the grants they were offering?
If you haven’t applied yet for a small business grant through LISC as a part of the COVID-19 relief package for small businesses in Los Angeles county, you have until Friday September 4th to do so. They’re offering $5,000, $15,000 and $25,000 grants depending on the size of your small business. Yes, that means you too indie contractors and micro- entrepreneurs!
To say that 2020 has been off the rails, is an underestimate. We’ve been off course — at least, here in the States — since January. And our country has never been more blatantly divided in socio-economic relations, since… well… that’s debateable. And I’m sick and tired of carrying on in arguments explaining my point of view with people who obviously don’t see the world the way I do, but can’t even agree to disagree.
I’m done. I’m sooo done. With the conversation, at least. You either believe we need to fix the broken elements in our country or you don’t. And that’s fine whichever side of the fence you fall on. You’re entitled to your opinion as so am I. What’s not fine? Our money, our jobs, our economy…our hustles.
I am BLESSED that I was able to keep my job after the shut down for California/ Los Angeles. Kept my full salary, my full benefits but the only thing’s that changed is my location. Home. I’m now working from home. And I LOVE it. Wouldn’t trade it for nothing in the world. But… it means other people aren’t working because they’ve lost their jobs, their gigs, their clients, their income source. My happy times are someone else’s worries and stress times.
Maybe you didn’t lose your job, but could be in trouble of being one of those people. Maybe your salary has been reduced. Maybe the clients aren’t flowing in the same frequency. Maybe… we need to reset the year and take back our piece of ownership. Our piece that we were so meticulously carving out for ourselves. F*ck the pandemic. We need to get our lives back on track even while we’re under quarantine. We need to plan ourselves out of the global economic disaster and come out on top.
