That job was going well, but the pandemic threw Aniton some unexpected curves, including managing his children’s distance learning.

For business owners, these times could be tough. It takes a lot to survive. And like Brittany, a mindset to rise above is half the battle.
“Carry on,” Aniton said. “Don’t let anything stop you, even a pandemic. because there is still money to be made in the event of a pandemic. Whatever your business, don’t be afraid to show off and you know, just go out with faith.
