Resources for SMEs and Entrepreneurs to Weather the COVID-19 Pandemic
Posted On March 30, 2020 Posted By: Jason Tiemeier

As the economic impact of the coronavirus pandemic starts to affect entrepreneurs and small businesses in Lakeside have created a compilation of local and federal aid available to our clients to help them weather this emergency successfully. 

U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA)

This government agency provides support to entrepreneurs and small businesses. They summarize their activities as the “3 C’s” of Capital, Contracts, and Counseling. 

As an entrepreneur or small business owner, you might want to look into their Disaster Loan Programs, which have been updated to reflect the latest developments with regards to the Coronavirus Pandemic and the impact it already has had on the economy. 

Through their Economic Injury Disaster Loan Program, every small business owner is eligible to apply for a low-interest loan due to Coronavirus (COVID-19) of up to $2 million in working capital.

The SBA also has several loan resources available, including express loans, microloans, exporting loans, and many more.

Head to the SBA’s website for more information.

Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act or the CARES Act

Signed into law on March 27th, 2020, this bill addresses the economic impacts of, and otherwise responds to, the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak. The bill authorizes emergency loans to distressed businesses. The bill also provides funding for $1,200 tax rebates to individuals, with an additional $500 payments per qualifying child. The rebate begins phasing out when incomes exceed $75,000 (or $150,000 for joint filers). The bill establishes limits on requirements for employers to provide paid leave.

Facebook Small Business Grants Program

Facebook is also offering financial support to small businesses in the form of cash grants and ad credits for up to 30,000 eligible businesses worldwide. They will be taking in applications in the next few weeks and you can sign up to receive more information as it becomes available. 

Check out their website here.

The Florida Small Business Emergency Bridge Loan Program

This state-funded, short term, interest-free working capital loan program of up to $50,000 is available to Florida for-profit businesses with 2 to 100 employees. You can apply until May 8, 2020.

How to Thrive in a Coworking Space
Posted On March 12, 2020 Posted By: Jason Tiemeier

Although the concept of coworking emerged with the hackerspaces of Berlin in the 1990s, the first coworking space was founded in 2005 in San Francisco by a guy named Brad Neuberg.

While the hackerspaces were similar, Neuberg’s vision of coworking is much closer to what it is today: a workspace dedicated to supporting independent workers, providing them with enough community and shared resources to help them thrive.

Why Do People Thrive in a Coworking Environment?

If you are a remote worker or a freelancer, you might think you can work from anywhere. As long as you have an internet connection, you can work, and all is right with the world.

However, if you are still working from home or the local coffee shop, you also know that there are inherent obstacles to getting your work done. Distractions, noise, and the lack of privacy are a detriment to quality work, but working alone isn’t the answer either. It can get lonely, and you might pine for the days where your coworkers were just on the other side of the cubicle.

These reasons—all of them—are why people like you thrive in a coworking space. You have access to a desk or seating that is conducive to work. There’s always lightning-fast internet, state-of-the-art office equipment, and best of all, it costs a fraction of what a traditional office does.

What makes a coworking space so magical? One word: community.

Just as Brad Neuberg was searching for a meaningful connection, we all need to feel like we’re not alone.

As a solo worker, you might feel disconnected and maybe a little discouraged because you work and communicate almost exclusively online. There is no teamwork, camaraderie, collaboration, and no culture, no networking, no meetings, no way to tell if you are doing great work or if you’re just flailing. And if you are—flailing, that is—there’s nobody to help you get back on track.

Community and culture are just as important as skills and experience in terms of driving results. Just because you are working on your own doesn’t mean this is not true for you, too.

Even if they aren’t working on the same projects or for the same company, studies show that coworkers are more likely to thrive than those who choose to work from home. Coworkers see their work as more meaningful, and they feel a strong sense of identity with the community, although they remain autonomous.

In fact, working with people who are engaged in different kinds of work can make your own identity stronger. Case in point, interactions in a coworking space often revolve around describing what we do, and this activity alone makes our work more exciting and unique.

As a bonus, there are no office politics to navigate, no bad managers, and no pressure to adopt a “work persona” so that you’ll fit in.

In the end, coworkers thrive because they have everything they need—beyond fast internet and desk space—to do so.
