Flattening the Fear for Small Business Owners (Guest: Elaine Parker)

August 12, 2020

Job Creators Network has launched a new project called FlattenTheFear.com. It features physicians from around the country trying to balance the doom and gloom narrative, the “corona mania” being promoted by politicians and the media.

Health Care News Managing Editor AnneMarie Schieber and guest Elaine Parker Parker discuss the content on FlattenTheFear.com, why it was launched, and why it focuses particularly on reopening schools. The podcast also discusses other pandemic related fears facing small business: lawsuits -- where they are coming from, and whether business owners can protect themselves.

Parker also discusses the toxic political climate and how businesses are fending off the potential of boycotts or vandalism if they don’t support a political point of view. Finally, she talks about the response in Congress, the CARES Act and PPP.
