Businesses are starting to receive Paycheck Protection Program funds the question is ‘how do I make sure it’s forgiven’. I have answers.
From Zoom Bombing to security breaches with the SBA, the Coronavirus Pandemic has created the perfect environment for computer crime, identity theft, and general shenanigans. I mean everything is super weird right now, people are stressed and there are over 17 million Americans applying for unemployment benefits, this doesn’t even get into how many businesses are applying for SBA loans through either the PPP program or the EIDL.
I have long said that the way to get ahead and live ‘the American dream’ is through business ownership. The tax laws are business friendly, there are a tremendous amount of options for how to structure your work and your life. I have also said that it’s not for the faint of heart. The situation with Coronavirus, the Paycheck Protection Program and the SBA loans have highlighted what types of businesses are favored. As small business owners are put last in line for aid, struggle to find lenders and are unsure when they will receive money larger businesses are able to apply through their regular banks due to existing relationships. I am rooting for the little guy.
What is the Paycheck Protection Program? Who qualifies, what can you use it for and how to get it. Attorney Emily D. Baker breaks it down for you with no BS.

You can’t get away from conversations about Corona Virus or as it’s formally called Covid-19, normally those conversations also quickly turn to ‘but why the toilet paper, does Corona Virus cause the shits?

I wouldn’t consider myself a Taylor Swift fan, however, Miss Americana is a must-watch in my book. In Miss Americana Taylor Swift goes from candidly talking about body image and seeking external validation to her sexual assault case. Taylor shares an unrestricted look into her experiences without veiling her emotions behind lyrics, and I am here for all of it.
Well…the so-called ‘UBER’ law has resulted in UBER responding in a multitude of ways. So if you are wondering how AB5 affects UBER, if UBER is complying with AB5 or even if UBER prices will go up because of AB5 you are in the right place. Because this is the one where UBER strikes back.
Wait, you can get sued over negative Yelp reviews? Yea…it’s a thing and it can cost you quite a lot of money in legal fees if you aren’t careful. There is a rising trend of companies trying to shut down damaging reviews on Yelp and other review platforms.
After everything Facebook went through with the Cambridge Analytica scandal and the massive lawsuits pending over violations of GDPR the company has decided that California’s new privacy law, CCPA, just doesn’t apply to them…really Facebook??
There is something I love about taking a bit of stock in what the year held, and what I am looking forward too. If you follow me around social you may know that I am a huge planner nerd. I love monthly, weekly and yearly planning. I love sitting down and plotting out the course. This also makes looking back a lot of fun, and a bit easier.
