Small Business Support from Quickbooks

As COVID-19 ravages small business across the globe, Quickbooks is helping alleviate some pain from lay offs, rent and other expenses, and loss of income. Teaming up with GoFundMe, Quickbooks has created a Small Business Relief Initiative, which helps small businesses start a fundraiser, sharing their story, and requesting financial support to help cover employee-related and business expenses. They were able to use footage from my 2018 Quickbooks commercial to help share the Initiative. Check out the below commercial to watch me in my studio.

Here are some photos of the process:
