Balance Within - Small Business Fund

Hi Everyone!

It has come to my and all my self employed colleagues attention that we may not be eligible for unemployment benefits, but I have applied anyway. 

Not only that, but we have all been mandated by the city of Beverly and the state of Massachusetts to close until further notice.  

With the nature of our profession, the impact of this pandemic will not only affect us right now but, as well as the foreseeable months ahead. Our own clients will probably be affected by this as well and for some it may take quite some time to recover and return to their normal scheduled appointments.

For myself, as well as my many amazing colleagues, our businesses are our only source of income and financial stability.

GoFundMe has generously set up a Small Business Relief Initiative and Fund for small business owners. They’ll be matching a $500 grant to small businesses that raise at least $500 or more on their own.

If you are able please share this or donate to my small business, Balance Within and the other small businesses on GoFundMe. I am so very grateful for any support or any assistance that you can  give in this trying time.

We are all in this together!
