“I am a big believer in the philosophy that when ‘everyone does something small, big things can happen’ – says Mike Galvin. The current situation doesn’t just impact small business, it impacts every business big or small. However an additional challenge for small business owners is cash flow. We need to lend them a hand and keep our local businesses alive during hard times.”
Small business owners are resilient and they’re survivors. Through constant reinvention they remain relevant to the locals they serve. The challenge we face today is unique, and is already having a huge impact on cashflow which has a downstream impact on employment and staying afloat.
