Were you heartbroken when your favorite restaurant closed, and then ecstatic when it reopened, only to be traumatized when it closed again? If that is how you feel, imagine what the owner behind the counter is going through. I didn’t understand myself until I met Chef Russell Jackson.
This was back in March, in the early days of our new Zoom reality, and I was there to inform Jackson, the owner of the Harlem restaurant Reverence, that his business was one of the first recipients of Hello Alice’s $10,000 Covid-19 Business for All Emergency grant program to help small businesses through the pandemic.

Russell paused for a moment before turning to call his wife and son into the camera frame. “This is our motivation,” he told me, looking down at his child sitting in his lap.
I was having a conversation with someone in HR a few weeks ago and they asked me a very pointed question: what is the best career path to take if I want to get to the CHRO/Chief People Officer role in the next few years?
The world of HR is evolving quickly. We had a 10 year aggressive decrease in unemployment followed by the chaos of COVID.

Another ordered a payroll tax holiday for Americans making less than $100,000.
While none of those measures contains direct support for small businesses, they create a minefield of tax issues.
In particular: the order that defers the employee portion of payroll taxes for the rest of the year. That’s 6.2 percent for Social Security and 1.45 percent for Medicare for workers earning less than $100,000 a year. If workers forego the payroll tax, their incomes will
