  • Lots of small businesses have not made it through and then the stock market making a triple dive yesterday makes the future look bleek.

  • This is supposed to be our high season in Palm Beach and I don't see any snow birds yet. Usually you could not find a seat at the local restaurants but it has changed so much! My friend opened up a coffee shop and he is dimming the lights to save electricity. One of my acquaintances is a manager at a hair salon in Wellington and she counted 10 clients in one week. I know I need to go but I have cut way down.

  • I sell Tupperware and with our warranty and our great product everyone is buying. Especially with other products that are out there but don't come with an amazing LIFETIME warranty. So personally my business is great. I've been doing this just 2 years. GOOD LUCK!!!
