The government lockdowns in response to the COVID-19 pandemic have not measurably saved lives, yet they have destroyed small businesses.
Lockdowns Have No Measurable Improvement to COVID-19
In response to widespread lockdowns on small businesses around the United States, Dennis Consorte founded Snackable Solutions. It is a community where founders and small business owners may share short, actionable tips to immediately bring value to other businesses.
Governors who shut down their states have stated their intent to slow down the rate of COVID-19 infection. However, in the United States, there is no correlation between state policies regarding lockdowns and masking, and deaths resulting from COVID-19 infection. Florida had a much looser economic and masking policy than New York, with a similar population. As of February 13, 2021, according to the CDC, the reported infection and death rates in Florida (300 infections per 100,000 population, 5.6 COVID-19 deaths per 100,000 population) is lower than that in New York (321 infections per 100,000 population, 6.2 per 100,000 population). In contrast, lockdowns have resulted in lost revenue, closings, unemployment, and bankruptcies, with New York in second place for the greatest number of COVID-19 bankruptcies at 13.47 per 10k businesses, according to MoneyGeek.com.
Dennis Consorte said, “COVID-19 is a serious illness and of course we must protect our most vulnerable people. We must also protect the backbone of our society if we are to survive as an extended community of free people as compared to much of the world. Small businesses and startups are so important to American culture, because they instill hope in our people. In this market economy, virtually anyone has a shot at something better with some sweat equity and a supportive community like Snackable Solutions.”
Snackable Solutions Founding Members Are Already Bringing Value to the Small Business Community
Consorte has already attracted several small business owners and moguls to the Snackable Solutions community who have produced short videos to improve one another’s businesses. Using the framework of 3-5 minute videos, Consorte utilizes 20 years of digital marketing, ecommerce, and project management experience to teach hard skills to the community. Some other Snackable Solutions Founding Members teach soft skills.

Larry Sharpe said, “With the COVID crisis, more and more people need to change their business models and their professional lives. A project like Snackable Solutions is an amazing way to put these people on the right path to get our economy back on track and reboot so many Americans that need help.”
