27 Mar Business Resources
Dear Clients and Friends,
As a small business, I share your concerns for the future. Over the past few days, I’ve compiled some resources that I’d like to share with you. I’m not a banker or expert in these topics and would direct your questions to the various links included.
Much of this information has been garnered through my association with the Cocoa Beach Regional Chamber of Commerce. They are working closely with the other Chambers in our county as well as directly with state and local government entities to help business owners navigate through these uncertain times. Their COVID-19 page is available to anyone who visits their website at www.cocoabeachchamber.com.
I would also suggest you visit the US Chamber of Commerce page at https://www.uschamber.com/coronavirus

I don’t want to clutter your inbox with multiple emails and repetitive info but did want to reach out and let you know that we are still here (albeit remotely) and happy to help however we can. I anticipate keeping our physical office closed for one to two more weeks and will keep you up to date as time progresses.
Praying for your continued good health and wellbeing.
