This post really resonates with me and this theme is ripe for multiple future posts! For many people, this time period created the catalyst to be entrepreneurial from home. As people start thinking about what it means to be an entrepreneurial and how to get started during this time, which platforms/companies have been speaking to this audience? Which community has been doing the best to provide support for this new wave of entrepreneurs? Facebook’s announcement yesterday on shops was very timely.

cheers Cat, and thanks for all your feedback on the topics I've been writing about!

if i had to pick one company I am most impressed by catering to this new wave of entrepreneurs...

you can probably tell from these posts, but I'm blown away by Shopify at the moment.

as I write, they are announcing a host of new features (https://www.shopify.com/reunite) - e.g. the ability for consumers to pay for goods in interest-free installments with ShopPay - that provide yet more reasons for new online stores to be built using their platform.
