In FirstLantic’s blog last week, we proposed that starting a new career or business during COVID-19 is not as crazy as it sounds.  So, now that you’re considering your options, we wanted to share some of the essential tools that you will need to launch a new venture, especially while working from home.   First of all, not all businesses need the same tools so some of these may be applicable and some may not.  You also need to be realistic about how much you can do at the beginning so don’t invest time or money in any tech tools until you have mapped out why you need them and how you will use them.  And, finally, there are lots of different options available so [...]

There’s no doubt that the COVID-19 crisis is wreaking havoc on many people's lives right now, and it can be hard to stay positive.  That’s why FirstLantic thought everyone could use some good news.  As the saying goes, “when the going gets tough, the tough get going," and that's exactly what’s happening as more people are stepping up to help those in need.  In our blog this week, FirstLantic profiles three heroes that are setting examples and proving that bad times really can bring out the good in people. And while we profile three heroes in this blog, there are thousands of others as well.  We acknowledge all of those on the frontlines every day – doctors, nurses, home caregivers, the military, police, first responders, [...]
