We understand the stress of owning and running a small business during this time of the Bay Area Shelter in Place.  Your employees are like family and having to reduce their hours or furlough them completely hurts to the core of not only your business, but your heart as well.  We want to offer as much information and help as we can during this time.  Many organizations throughout the Tri-Valley and East Bay are working hard to give support.  Follow the links below for more information on them.  TIP:  sign-up for their newsletters to get immediate information on webinars and new information.
