2020 was an unprecedented year for us all. Small business owners in particular were presented with a number of challenges.
It’s no surprise that pandemic related information dominated the SBDC Blog and articles looking into COVID-19 topics were the most widely read category during the year.
As we enter the new year with renewed optimism of what lies ahead, we look back at the stories you loved most in 2020, including those that were pandemic related, had nothing to do with coronavirus and some old favourites that continue to be popular amongst our readers.
