“Because my line of business is construction, and safety is highly stressed on a daily basis, I have made it a point at the start of the workday to provide face masks and gloves and remind them of social distancing. I have had to scale my projects back to one or two people on the job. This has forced me to readjust my completion deadline, which consequently delayed payment for project completion.”

“Due to COVID-19 we cannot get the PPE equipment we need, and projects are being canceled or put on hold so we haven't worked for almost two months. We have not been able to get a loan so far, and need something to pay the bills until we have income coming back into the company.”

Create a New Business Plan

Evolving safety protocols, extended project timelines, and new expenses have had an impact on your ability to serve your customers. Build a better tomorrow by exploring opportunities, identifying what works, and investing the time, money, and energy where it matters.
