The Covid shut downs have been wreaking havoc on Michigan small businesses. By far the hardest hit businesses have been in the personal services sector, and among then are gyms, bars, restaurants hair salon's, barbers and spas. To help us understand what's happening we had conversations with one of the area's small business leaders, Ed Barbieri, owner of Da Edorado North in Grand Blanc, and Jim Hargrove (yes, The Voice of Reason) chiming in with his years of entrepreneurial wisdom. Their insight and experiences will shed a lot of light on what's happening economically and culturally within the small business community.
