COVID-19 Relief for Your Small Business
Hey there! 👋
It's Larissa, Founder of PI. How is everything going for you? It's been almost a month since our last newsletter so I wanted to check in with you to see how everything is going. I know a lot of you are turning online or perhaps you are already starting to re-open in your state - which is great!
As a Small Woman Owned & Operated business I wanted to let you know that we are here to support you. I love learning about new ways to support you and others in our community which is why I have put together an updated list of resources available to you. As women, our strength is in collaboration & community and nothing, not even COVID, can take that away from us. With perseverance and resilience we will get through this! Remember to trust your intuition & to keep picking yourself back up and together we will be stronger than before!
Without further ado - here are the resources that you want to know about! 👇
