d. New Resources and opportunities 

e. Working on your business not just in your business

f. Getting involved in your community

As a resident of Manitou and a business owner and operator in Colorado Springs since 1995, I take these times very seriously. I knew that COVID was going to be devastating to the world, our country, but more locally impactful, right here in our own community. Knowing what hard times lay ahead, I began to reach out to my network of business owners to open our lines of communication.  Through my work as the President of the Pikes Peak Chapter of the Colorado Restaurant Association, I have had access to many resources to share with local restaurants, and that was key to keeping many of them informed. As we move into month seven of the pandemic, there is so much uncertainty, so many questions, no one has the answers yet, but we do have resources to utilize to protect ourselves better moving forward.  

You are invited to a Zoom meeting. 

When: Nov 10, 2020 10:00 AM Mountain Time (US and Canada)

Come join us for this 2020 bi-monthly series where we visit local small businesses and learn about the ins-and-outs of what it takes to be a local entrepreneur! Hear the good, the bad, and the ugly -- the "real talk" -- directly from local small business owners at their business location.
