Governments and Corporations are Responsible for the Life and Death of Small Business

No More Excuses: Small Business Needs Support, Not Lockdowns and Unfair Restrictions

When we complain about a problem and do nothing, we are worst than the problem itself. Canada has always been a country that defined itself on social responsibility. That is what Canadians do!”

— Edward Henry

TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, February 25, 2021 / — How many small businesses throughout Canada have struggled and closed while many large corporations have flourished and taken bonuses for themselves? Bonuses they have been able to afford because they are subsidizing employee wages and expenses with government contribution.

How many small businesses have been shut down due to health concerns without any data that suggests these same businesses are a greater risk than the large box stores? Why is small business on lockdown while other large essential corporations have been able to operate with almost no restrictions?

When will all business have equal rights?

When will a small business that can operate safely have the same privileged rights of the large corporations and be permitted to stay open?

The bottom line on this entire argument is that classifications of essential and non-essential are discriminatory to small businesses. Most small businesses have made greater efforts to protect their customers than many of the “essential” companies that have been allowed to operate freely with minimal restrictions. Big box stores that often violate capacity and social distancing limits and have only recently been investigated for violations.

The government has made health determinations with little logic, data, or explanation on why retail businesses outside of box stores are unfairly restricted to less capacity.

After two lockdowns and still no plan, there has been no discussion regarding fair treatment for small businesses. Everyone knows that small business is working from an unfair position. Many small business owners have had to take government loans to survive. Current data released by CFIB states that small business owes more than $135 billion. This amount requires repayment to the very government that is locking them down after adjustments they have made to their businesses to become compliant to guidelines that are ambiguous. The data from various departments are conflicting and inaccurate.

It is time for the government to balance the scale. Large corporations should be in partnership with small businesses, not sending businesses out of Canada. Businesses that have been unfairly treated deserve greater tax breaks and loan forgiveness based on the financial struggles that have been exacerbated by the continued mismanagement of poorly thought-out restrictions.

Small Business is Essential is an initiative created by Edward Henry Company and Social Distance Management. Our goal and function are to advocate on behalf of suffering small businesses due to the lack of support and unfair treatment from various government restrictions. The interest expressed by many small businesses throughout Canada, and even the United States for Small Business is Essential to help struggling small businesses has evolved to become more than a cause. It has now become an organization that will be on the front lines to fight for the rights of small businesses.

It is time for Canadians to be socially responsible and ensure that fairness is included in the metrics that we are using when governing through these difficult times. It is time to give small businesses support and allow them the same rights that have been allotted to large corporations for over a year.

The restrictions put on businesses should reflect the health and safety threat, the business’ ability to manage their space and people, and the quantified rate/metric of spread in a specific region.

We are currently raising finances for businesses that are complying with health and safety recommendations and guidelines to stay open. We are advocating to keep business in Canada and to support small businesses. Edward Henry Company will be donating 50% of the proceeds from its recent new book release Cut The Bullsh*T to Small Business is Essential of Canada. Small businesses across Canada are done paying the price. Small businesses are going to unite and stand up to the government and big business, because SmAll Business is Essential.

Austin-based Receives First Grant

Unmudl – The Course-to-Jobs Marketplace

Thrive Grant supports in launching

Being named a recipient of a Travis County Thrive Grant is an incredible milestone for us here at”

— Dr. Parminder Jassal, CEO of

AUSTIN, TX, UNITED STATES, February 25, 2021 / — Contending with a worldwide pandemic certainly was not on Austin-based’s radar when they began designing their first public project in late 2019. As it became clear that COVID-19 would disrupt original plans, the team pivoted to optimize design, development, and communications to continue on plan while staying connected to key stakeholders. As members of’s team are located in multiple cities across the country, they were modelling a new future and building it at the same time.

While staying on the fast track for a late 2020 launch of the Marketplace—an innovative online marketplace of job training, skills development, and certification courses from a proprietary network of community colleges—the pandemic created unforeseen challenges for as well as their community college partners. Notably, community colleges in the Unmudl network found themselves needing to adjust almost all of their standard operations including adapting to completely virtual platforms and reconfiguring internal and external protocols to meet health and safety requirements.

So, when Travis County (TX) announced they were accepting applications from local businesses for their Travis County Thrive Grant program, CEO Dr. Parminder Jassal and her team jumped at the opportunity to compete. In September, they learned that was among the 225 businesses (from over 1,000 interested companies) selected to receive a Thrive Business Grant. The funding from the Thrive Grant invests in’s scaling efforts to reach more employers and working learners.

The Thrive program was administered by economic development nonprofit organization Business and Community Lenders (BCL) of Texas. Through the Travis County Thrive program, BLC provided 225 small businesses with a total of $9 million in funding, as well as one-on-one business continuity coaching with trained small business experts. BCL of Texas CEO Rosa Rios Valdez said, “BCL was founded during a recession to help small businesses. We’re here today to help strengthen small business during this challenging time. We know how important it is to get funding into the hands of small business owners so that they can stay strong and keep their doors open.”

“Being named a recipient of a Travis County Thrive Grant is an incredible milestone for us here at,” noted Dr. Jassal. “It’s the first grant we’ve received at, and we are especially honored that our hometown has confidence and belief in the work we’re doing. I couldn’t be more grateful for their support, especially being a woman-owned, minority-owned, and military-spouse-owned business, the competition is a bit more difficult among funders. ”

The team achieved their first major milestone for in November 2020 — opening the marketplace to the public on schedule. Unmudl is now gaining visibility and involvement from working learners, employers, community colleges, and strategic partners. “As a result of the Travis County Thrive Grant,” Dr. Jassal shared, “ has been able to continue advancing their mission of helping America’s community colleges become the life-long choice for working learners and businesses domestically and internationally.” currently offers more than 250 courses from an expanding coast-to-coast network of seven partner community colleges: Bellevue College (; Central New Mexico Community College (; GateWay Community College (; Pima Community College (; San Diego Continuing Education (; San Juan College (; and SUNY Broome (

02 Market just added a new range of stores to save money on Pet Food, Pet Treats and Pet Medical

02 Market The future on online shopping

Fine pet food for less start saving today

Save on pets Toys

With 02 market anyone can save money on anything when buy online from Amazon, eBay, Walmart and many more

Save Money When Shopping online its addictive, saving money is my new hobby.”

— Eli Ofel

TOMS RIVER, NEW JERSEY, USA, February 25, 2021 / — The new price comparison site 02 market offers value for pet owners.

Owning a pet could get very expensive; it is literally like having a child in many senses, for example, a dog who only eats the finest and freshest raw foods? Or maybe your goldfish needs some new scenery to enjoy on his daily rounds of the tank?

Pet owners can lavish their loved ones with the treats they deserve, clothing, and toys; the O2 Market team has been working hard for the past three years to provide a premium price comparison platform that has launched a dedicated service specifically for pet products.

Already well established as a price comparison service focussed on high-end products in categories such as makeup, superfoods, and tech, O2 Market has now added a collection of pet-specific stores to compare from, allowing pet owners to make savings on essentials such as food, litter, and bedding, as well as treats including snacks, toys, and high tech gadgets.

According to a recent survey published on,*

Actual Sales within the U.S. Market in 2019
In 2019, $95.7 billion was spent on our pets in the U.S.
Pet Food & Treats $36.9 billion
Supplies, Live Animals & OTC Medicine $19.2 billion
Vet Care & Product Sales $29.3 billion
Other Services $10.3 billion

As the price of pet products increase, consumers are looking to save more than ever to ensure value for money.

Pet also has high-end, luxury items, and pet owners want to be sure not to overpay for such items. Still, the problem is how to find the lowest price for any specific product? Yes, there is always Google, but Google gives article results and how-to pages and ads, and it's all great, but it is not a product search plus very time-consuming, and still, the question remains, is it possible to save more buying the same item elsewhere.

O2 Market is a marketplace for finding products online from multiple stores all in one place. The team invested over three years in designing and developing a sleek interface, minimal but powerful. The visual layout of the site, combined with the intelligent selection of products, makes shopping for pet food, treats, and essentials a seamless and enjoyable experience and cuts out the need to click through different results to see what's available. In contrast to searching directly on Google, the products are presented as though on a shelf in a real store, rather than as a list of text-based results, so the site plays to our natural shopping habits.

Robert Tweed: Mold Remediation CEO on When you Should Call a Mold Professional

Robert Tweed: Mold Remediation CEO on When you Should Call a Mold Professional

SAN MARINO, CA, USA, February 25, 2021 / — Robert Tweed is a real estate professional with expertise in property investing, high-income rental properties, and 1031 exchanges. Having dealt with many properties in many states and conditions, he’s seen just about everything a house can go through. That being the case, Robert Tweed has taken a special interest in mold remediation. In fact, he has taken such an interest in the topic that he started his own indoor mold remediation company, Mold Zero. He says molds release mycotoxins or volatile organic compounds when they grow. According to, indoor mold causes more than 2.5 million deaths a year in the US alone. Robert Tweed says it’s important for homeowners and renters to know when to call a mold remediation professional.

Robert Tweed, Mold Remediation CEO on When you Should Call a Mold Professional

We are exposed to mold and mold spores every single day of our lives whether we know it or not. Robert Tweed explains that it is not being around mold that is the problem. It is a problem when we are around growing mold blooms for extended periods of time, and it is a serious problem when the mold we are exposed to particularly aggressive and toxic mold species such as black mold. There are roughly 15 types of mold that are common in everyday environments. Of those, Robert Tweed explains, six are potentially harmful, and of those six the most dangerous is called Stachybotrys – more commonly known as black mold.

Spotting Stachybotrys

Robert Tweed says that Stachybotrys forms black blooms that are extremely dangerous when disturbed. When they are physically disrupted, they release toxic spores that can cause respiratory issues, sinus congestion, eye irritation, sore throat, coughing, chronic fatigue, aches and pains, and issues with the central nervous system.

Stachybotrys can grow on any organic material when wet, but the most common spots are wood, cardboard, and gypsum board. Surfaces tend to need to be damp for long periods of time to develop this form of mold. Stachybotrys tends to form in distinctive black splotches that look a lot like a cancerous tumor on skin. If exposed to Stachybotrys spores for a long enough period of time, lung cancer is the likely result.

Robert Tweed warns that many molds will grow in similar ways, and most can be dangerous if left unchecked in the home. But he strongly advises that if you feel any of the symptoms described above or if you see black mold anywhere in your home, you should not touch it and call a mold remediation expert without hesitation.

Bestselling author Sheena Yap Chan: “If you want things to happen, make the first move.”

New book reveals the joys and struggles of 18 Asian women entrepreneurs who traveled many different paths to create their best lives

USA, February 25, 2021 / — Podcaster Sheena Yap Chan is on a mission to create something she never had: role models who look like she does. “Growing up, I never had any kind of representation,” she says. “Back then, I really wanted to name myself Heather, have blonde hair and blue eyes, because that’s what I thought being beautiful was. I just never thought anything was possible because I never saw other Asian women go out there and do their own thing, forge their own path.”

With “The Tao of Self-Confidence” podcast, Sheena has done just that, rejecting both the expectation among Asian families that women “go to school, get married, get a job, have kids, and live one way of life” as well as the stereotypes of Asian women as “quiet, submissive, and obedient.” These stereotypes are what keep Asian women out of leadership roles and not getting paid their worth. “This is why it’s so important to have a voice and speak our voice,”
Sheena says. “I’m always trying to find other platforms to elevate that. And that is why this book is so important. How many books do you see that highlight so many Asian women on the cover? None. It’s already 2021! Something needs to change.”

Well, that book is now here: Asian Women Who Boss Up by Tam Luc, the author, educator, and podcaster dedicated to helping women “boss up,” is a collection of interviews with highly successful Asian women. All of them reveal how they have overcome obstacles and stereotypes, pushed past self-imposed limits, and defied expectations imposed on them by others, often their parents. This book is a master class of entrepreneurial advice and personal
development guidance for any woman in search of role models who show that, yes, you can live the life of your dreams.

Sheena hopes the book will help Asian women in particular recognize their own worth. “I want them to realize they’re more than enough to go out there and do something that they love and not be bogged down by statuses from different cultures,” Sheena says. “Especially for Asian women, it’s like, if you’re not married, something’s wrong with you. Or if you’re going through a mental health issue, something’s wrong with you. Nothing’s wrong with you. We’re all human.

We have to be okay with not being perfect. We have to accept our flaws, our strengths, and our weaknesses.” She shares a tip she learned during a class recently: “There are days when we’re not 100 percent confident, but all you need is 51 percent belief in yourself. Then you have that little bit to push forward and take the next step.”
