Season Recap | 06.01.20 | The Struggle Continues…

In the first season of GigRoots, we’ve been speaking with entrepreneurs from all across the country about the effects of quarantine on their various endeavors.

As business owners, marginalized entrepreneurs have such incredible things to offer the world — we just have to be willing to hear their stories.
