Hey folks,

I just wanted to say, if you're struggling with the COVID-19 stuff and not sure what to do, I'm willing to help anyone who is trying to maintain their business and assets. I know this thing is hitting some people disproportionately hard. To my surprise, it hasn't majorly impacted me, at least not yet. So if you need a level head to talk to, or some expertise in something I know about, just PM me and let me know.

By the way, I'm not advertising in this thread... not consulting, lending, investing, etc. Just offering knowledge, experience, or contacts to help out friends because I've gotten a lot form this forum.

If anyone feels the same way and can help fellow fastlaners without requiring material gain, it would be great if you post here too. I've been in really tight spots before, and I know the feeling. When that was me, if I hadn't found someone who knew what to do in a bad situation, I'm not sure how I would have gotten out of it. Thanks in advance, you're true mensches ;) Might be helpful to post your main skills, in case any of them are something a friend needs help with.

Here are the things I'm pretty confident I know something about... they're the things I'm most likely to be able to help you with:
  • Insurance
  • Finance and risk finance
  • Business operations, automation, cost cutting
  • Business turnaround
  • Management systems
  • Software development (certain aspects of)
Stay well.

We can help with the information on SBA loans/PPP/personal rebates/etc, although responses may be delayed since we're still in the thick of tax season.

Also, limited assistance with cash-flow forecasting, and general tax/accounting questions.

I have actually read large portions of the CARES Act itself (some parts probably a dozen times or more), I'm not relying on third-hand info in the news.

I'm happy to help. My marketing agency is actually busier than normal, so I haven't been as active on the forum. But if anyone needs some quick SEO/Digital Marketing/Sales advice, I'm happy to help as much as I'm able. Probably best to message me since I'm not keeping up on threads. And like Rabby said, the offer is for free advice.

Stay safe out there FastlaneFam.

My day job is working in software for a technology company that focuses on delivery of K-12 curricula, so we are very busy and even hiring right now. In most ways, I'm also unperturbed.

At the same time, I've made some bad business decisions that ran my accounts to ~$0 just after my first child was born. I know what it's like to have no money and no prospects with a lot of responsibility.

I'd also be happy to help anyone who may need a hand. Here's what I may be able to help with:

  1. Sharing advice and my own story on how to get through uncertain times
  2. Running a software development team
  3. Learning software development
  4. Interviewing (as interviewer and interviewee)

I love this thread!

I can offer help with:
- book writing and editing
- self publishing (stores, genres, some trends, covers, how to be on market, research, and more)
- I'm also bilingual English-Italian, so if you need anything related to that (or help with stuff from Italy), just ask.

On a more personal level, I'm more than happy to be a positivity and/or accountability buddy (or checking on you just to help destress). Also, if you need help with recipes and cooking, I might be able to help, since it's one of my main hobbies :)
