Three Financial Steps That Workers and Small Business Owners Should Take Now to Light the Way Forward

A quote by Richard C. Morais, author of The Hundred-Foot Journey, perfectly sums up the grit and resilience required in these uncertain times of COVID-19:  

“There are many points in life when we cannot see what awaits us around the corner, and it is precisely at such times, when our path forward is unclear, that we must bravely keep our nerve, resolutely putting one foot before the other as we march blindly into the dark.” 

For overwhelmed workers and small business owners, it can be confusing to know how to clarify the path forward and begin the march ahead.  In these unprecedented times, you might be wondering:  What information do I need to make decisions?  How can I support dependents and employees while mitigating financial losses so we can all come out stronger when this is over? What help can I expect?   Following is a helpful guide to answering these crucial questions and shine a light on the path forward.
