It’s no secret that this year has been tough for small businesses, but despite all the challenges, many folks decided to get creative with their income streams by starting or growing a side-hustlin’ small business. 💰 (Yep, even that vintage resale Instagram account you run is a small business — even though you went to school for journalism.)
