On average, each of us has just 29,000 days on this planet – it’s imperative that we do what we love! These new businesses bravely took the leap to follow their passion, only to face one of the most challenging moments in our lifetime. In such a tough year for small businesses, they have responded with creativity, enthusiasm and courage to not only launch but bloom.
If there’s a silver lining to take from the pandemic, it’s the increased awareness of small businesses and the amount of people who have woken up to what’s important to them and taken the leap to follow their passion – just as the nominees in the Newcomer Award category have.
