We understand how difficult this time can be for individuals and small business owners. The uncertainty of the coronavirus and what the ultimate impact on the economy will be has put a huge financial burden on everyone.
The government has responded with the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, which is a record-setting stimulus package aimed to provide help to everyone. We’ve heard quite a bit about the payments being sent out to individuals, but we want to focus on the impact this will have on small businesses.
So we’ll discuss two of the main provisions that owners should be considering. The first are emergency economic disaster loans and the second is the payroll protection plan. Beyond what we talk about on the show, we’ll also provide you with a six-page document listing all of the important details of the CARES Act. All you need to do to receive it is text CARES to 50597.
Following that conversation, we’re going to take a bit of a lighter approach to a phrase we’re hearing over and over again, and that’s social distancing. What if we took the idea of keeping space and staying separated to maintain our physical health and applied that to investing and planning to protect our financial health.
We’ll pull out four different examples of things your should be keeping separated in your plan and help you understand why it’s important to do so.
Thanks for listening to this episode. We’ll be back again next week for another show.
