Webinar: Navigating COVID-19 as a Wellness Entrepreneur
We recently teamed up with Vagaro to host a live webinar walking through the basics of COVID-19 relief programs available to the wellness industry, namely the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) and Economic Injury Disaster Loans (EIDL).
As of April 24, 2020, new funds are available for both PPP and EIDL loans. Whether you’re a licensed or future professional in cosmetology, esthetics, or a nail technician, this session will breakdown the two major federal programs, as well as other private resources that can support your business through COVID-19’s economic impact.
