Resources for businesses and freelancers affected by Covid-19

  2. Learn something new (CAD or 3D design, lighting control software, Web design).

  3. Repair broken cables or clean up the warehouse/storage.

  4. Check out manufacturer’s website for equipment training and certification.

  5. Get financial paperwork in order.

  6. Research wealth building and money management topics

  7. Visit the university of YouTube.com (stay away from the cat videos, they’re addictive).
