    I'm a contractor, and I have next to nothing lined up for the next couple months.
    I don't have shit in savings because of my separation, and I have a fuckload of credit card bills right now.
    If something doesn't change, I'm about to destroy my credit. I might have to tap into my investments which just took a giant shit as well.

    My sister is a massage therapist and had to shut her business down. Her husband is a bartender and not working right now either.

    My brother Sells Cars and just got let go. He also gets a military check every month though, and he lives cheap, so he should be fine.

    Out of everyone I know, my ex has been hit the hardest. She's a waitress that makes about $300 a night in tips. She's terrible with her money and lives paycheck-to-paycheck. I talked to her a couple days ago, and she has zero money in her bank account is living off of a credit card that's almost maxed out.

    This thing is going to fuck over a lot of people financially

    Try calling your credit card and see if you can pay minimum for next couple of months without any interest rate. Might help a little bit with your cash flow. Good luck.

    Of course there are people out there hurting from this. It may not affect you personally or the people around you, but this is real. Yes many will get boosted unemployment checks, stimulus money to hold them longer, but how many jobs will be loss for good? Small businesses that will be forced to shutdown? More interest that builds up because they can't pay off debt?

    In my market it is insane. The rates are so low so we have a surge of refis, but we also have people pulling the trigger on buying. We are obviously going to see some problems - people not wanting to list, people not wanting to look at houses, people who lost jobs, etc. With that said, we have a ton of people upgrading houses too. Put it this way - we have a deposit goal each week. We are tripling it. We can't keep up honestly.

    I’m a self employed striking coach. I’m fucked. I had a few Bellator fights and a main card ufc bout scheduled in the coming months and they’re all cancelled. My private clients dropped off. Currently living off of savings. This sucks.

    Wow, yeah, trainers now are f**ed.
    For example if a gym charge like xx $/ monthly and for extra work scheduled a guy is paying at the beginning of current month too.
    Now without fights scheduled they don't have payments for mitt/ pad work, privates 1 vs2 etc etc.
    Sparring partners too is not necessity to handle, payments for this 0...………..
    0 corner fees too.
    Long story.
    One club initially intended to use their cutman as attendant, now safety measures, he is stitting at home and watching internet & TV.

    Likewise (more in the helpdesk end of it). I got laid off from my one assignment last month, unfortunately. Although I think I may be one of the only ones in this thread to be able to say I'm currently considering 2 job offers (both work from home, thankfully). Try to count your blessings when you can, folks.

    Yes, sir. We're very fortunate under these circumstances.
    Hopefully, others that have been hit hard by all this will be buoyed by the stimulus check that's coming soon & they will be able to get by on unemployment after that until they get back to work.

    OK. Yeah, I would hope that the virus will have dissipated by then.
    Take care & stay healthy, my friend.

    Business and income has gone down, however the rate my wife can spend it has gone down even more. We’re actually coming out ahead.
