The Concept of "Gaiting"
The concept of "gaiting" allows for a criteria before moving into the next phase. This appears to be dependent on data and cases. Such a system helps local governments figure out where they fit in terms of the overall safety measures to open up. There will be a new normal that may include crowds but there will always be protections in place. The system allows checking back to ensure cases are subsided before moving forward.
People want to keep the small business loan system going. This has great potential down the road. It will improve liquidity, spur innovation, and run against the "wealthy get everything" mentality that has grown over the past decade. Young Millenials will have a better chance to blaze own path in a way that creates long term economic sustainability. It is opportunity and youthful hope matched with seasoned guidance that will make our nation a leading force for good generations to come!

If I was a young person now I would think about what I could do to turn my innovative ideas into a feasible business. It may start in your basement or garage but with diligence could become a powerhouse for your family and local communities. There are many ways to serve your country and dreaming is one of them!
