(PLEASE RETWEET) On January 15, 2021 6:30AM, an unidentified man broke into my parent's restaurant, The Crew (in Sunset District, SF) and stole everything valuable to us. A simple retweet could potentially help identify this man and give justice to my parents. (1/12) ImageImageImage

My #1 Email list growth strategy?

I've used free #spreadsheets to grow my email subscriber list. Given my level of traffic, it's worked relatively well.

1/4
The spreadsheets are related to the same #smallbusiness #finance topics that I write about. It was a challenge to find a free way to collect visitor emails and to deliver the spreadsheet instantaneously and automatically.

2/4
After several weeks of trial and error, I was able to solve this issue by embedding #Google Forms into my posts. Then, by adding a little bit of code I found elsewhere, the appropriate Google Sheet opens in a separate browser tab after form submission.

Let me introduce to you this guy in the right most of image - Mukesh. We release an order on him today for some major automation of our production line.
His father was an ice cream seller. And everyday would lose money as ice creams would melt. He used to go to some govt school but never enjoyed being there. He quit school and joined a small workshop as a peon serving tea to visitors
Almost 11/2 years back we were searching for someone to make hydraulic fixtures for precision production to automate a production line. I googled and found his page on FB. Asked my team to call him. When I first met him was shocked as he looked more like a shop floor helper.

1/5 The government has (finally) introduced a revised business rent relief program, available until June 2021. If revenue has declined by 70%+, you may apply for 65% of rent or mortgage interest payments; [more...]

#calgarycentre #cdnpoli #canpoli #smallbusiness
2/5: ... if revenue has fallen by less than 70% there is “a gradually decreasing level of support”. Businesses forced to shut down by mandatory order qualify for up to 90% of rent or mortgage interest payments. Tenants apply directly, without going through their landlord.
3/5: While this is good news, there are several questions:

1. Conservatives and business groups have said for five months that the design of the previous program (CECRA) was flawed. Why did it take five months to hear the message?

What I have to say is very important and I ask you to read this all the way through.

About half of our district is the Northern Neck and Middle Peninsula. This is where our aquaculture is and it is very strong.

This area makes its living from the hard labor of our Watermen. They need our support now more than ever. Our Watermen catch and raise marine life from rockfish to oysters. They are small businesses that keep the region going.

The death of the #highstreet is not universally applicable. Empty shop fronts range from 5% to circa 30%.

Future of the high street may lie in more residential and entertainment space in the centre of towns, alongside #retail.

We need to re-imagine the #highstreet. #Pet businesses can offer a tactile #shopping opportunity that isn't open to other commercial entities

We talk a lot about growth, marketing, SEO & all the fun sides of #startups and #entrepreneurship, but there's more to online business than that.

Let's take a crash course in financial statements, shall we?

THREAD
The 3 financial statements businesses issue to report their financial performance are:
1⃣ Cash Flow Statements
2⃣ Balance Sheets
3⃣ Income Statements

@freshbooks has a good tutorial on how to read each of these statements. freshbooks.com/blog/financial…

#Accounting #SmallBusiness
1. CASH FLOW STATEMENT
1a) The cash flow statement shows actual cash inflows and outflows of a business over time. 📈

It basically measures how well a company manages its cash. @noahparsons and @Bplans explain cash flow statements in this article:

Small Business Crisis Amidst the #COVID19 Pandemic:

Dear small business owners & advocates,

It is time to collect your stories about @WasteManagement to document the contract brutality that #smallbusinesses face: @wmcares.

#WasteOfManagement #TakeOutTheTrashPandemic
#WastedManagement #WasteOfManagement

WM abuses #smallbusinesses in the best of times yet exploits their worst moments: retirement; business exit; need to switch to a more competitive service.

@Q_i_a_n_a @AlwaysaGoodday1 @sweatequity @ewhitmore @AOC @KamalaHarris @JoeBiden
Call for a national & California review of @WasteManagement contract disputes with #smallbusinesses to explore a #classaction lawsuit.

It is time to #TakeOutTheTrashPandemic.

I am hearing horror stories during this unprecedented health & economic crisis from micro-businesses.

In today’s installment of “How can we use COVID as a way to ban abortion?" the bodyguards of misogyny in the Senate are proposing that paycheck protection expands to churches like The Little Brothers of the Pray-the-Gay-Away and explicitly excludes abortion providers. Image
Yep. Providers of abortion, an essential medical service that 1 in 4 women will get in their lifetime, are SHUT OUT while the youth minister organizing the protests outside of these clinics is all… #Covid19 #PPP
loeffler.senate.gov/loeffler-intro…
So if you have a pin left in your political voodoo doll, stick it in hard knowing that in the game of who gets a paycheck and who doesn’t, politicians wanna make sure the CHURCH THAT PAYS NO TAXES, gets help before the small business that does. #smallbiz #smallbusiness

If you're #SelfEmployed, #freelance or #SmallBusiness, applying for #unemploymentbenefits for the first time, here's what I learned when applying for #PUA from the California #EDD. First of all, you start here and create a new account: ow.ly/7vwt50zxuz0
Once you register for a new account with Benefit Programs Online, you will be able to proceed to "UI Online," then "File a New Claim." Like many self-employed professionals, my income has fallen off a cliff, but not dried up completely. That's OK; you can still file.
Assuming you worked full-time in your business before, enter your previous hours per week as 40 & your annual income as the net income claimed on your Schedule C last year. That's at the very bottom, Line 31. As long as your net income is over $17,368, you qualify.

Are your Community's small businesses hurting? We just had an AWESOME Community funded Stimulus event called Prime the Pump and it was INCREDIBLY SUCCESSFUL! And incredibly easy. Here's how we did it...

@POTUS
#PrimeThePump
#ShopLocal
#WimberleyUnited
#COVID19
#SmallBusiness
2) First, the what & the how:
Prime the Pump was for jump starting the Community shopping by pulling people out to the shops& giving them an incentive to spend.
We did this by raising money via local donations from local businesses Community members. We raised $10,000 in 5 days!
3)The only requirements were that all shoppers had to show up at the event to sign up, they would be reimbursed a set amount$ for spending at all local shops who weren't able to open during the shut down, &they have to present their receipts at a set time Mon or Tue next week.

Three messages this morning based on questions I received over the weekend:

1. When will #PPP start again
2. Why did they allow bigger companies to get #PPPloans when this is for #SmallBusiness
3. When and how should we re-open our economy again?
