“Every business owner impacted by COVID-19 is scrambling to figure out their next moves for their survival,” said John Rizzo,CPA, Managing Partner, RDG+Partners. “Perhaps the greatest challenge is that new information about financial disaster relief initiatives is released everyday, and unless business owners are on top of it, they could miss updates that are critical to their success in securing funding. Through the webinar series,our advisors will keep everyone as up to date as possible on all of the moving pieces.”
The“Stay Strong” webinars are free and will take place every Thursday at 1:30 p.m.ET, and are expected to last approximately 30 to 45 minutes each.

In addition to the webinars,the resources are updated regularly.
Following the 9/11 terrorist attacks in 2001—and amid the resulting financial downturn—Rizzo helped business owners obtain more than $50 million in assistance through stimulus programs similar to those being offered to mitigate the economic impact of COVID-19.
