As the sudden disruption of COVID-19 spread through the country and the world, the technology company Los Arditos Srl found themselves on the front line of this battle. In the early weeks of 2020, they began to hear from their customers about the drastic shocks small businesses were enduring. The company has long focused on championing a community of people they call everyday entrepreneurs think small business, sole proprietors and local philanthropies which gave an early window into how the crisis cut across every culture and type of independent endeavor. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #openwestand #milano #italy #sostenibilità #italia #work #spain #germany #switzerland

Even though I hardly see my baking friends because of COVID-19, we still connect with each other virtually. There is a wonderful community of entrepreneurs and business owners that are helping each other through the #GoDaddy community forum and #OpenWeStand microsite. There are a ton of useful resources and inspiration in that community that allows us to keep moving forward together. Check out the link in my bio for more information. Keep pressing on! #GoDaddyPartner

My entire freelancing business has changed in the last few months due to Covid19. I have been forced to find new ways to connect, collaborate, and produce while at a distance from my customers and collaborators. Thanks to #OpenWeStand by GoDaddy I’ve been able to have conversations with others in my industry who have learned to adapt as well. The future of my business and professional life look brighter now because of it. Take a moment and checkout the LinkedIn group and make progress in your own business. #GoDaddyPartner #ad https://actv.at/8JP/owslp2li
