As we all know, the COVID-19 pandemic unleashed a wave of economic uncertainty across the globe, and Santa Barbara is no exception. Lay-offs, furloughs, and business closures are the unfortunate norm these days. 

But Santa Barbara is a town full of creatives, so we weren’t surprised to see many of our friends and neighbors launch brand new business ventures in the wake of losing their jobs or just facing extreme boredom.

We’d like to know your story, so please fill out this short survey. We plan to showcase a few of these efforts in a forthcoming article.
