Anything specific you’d like to have mentioned in the article?
I owned a business in widnes, and gave it up 2019 to start on my own with my wife. We spent all of our life savings and then lockdown hit. We had to sell our Bentley and our holiday home to survive and starting paying our staff out of our own wages to keep them, hoping the world would be back to normal. It hit us hard as a new business with no help. We have came out of the other end thriving and building our business back up to the top. We continue to do so and are hoping to open alot of new doors.
