In fact, the research shows that the coronavirus is turning many Americans to entrepreneurship to make ends meet.

In Wyoming, average annual business applications grew by 193% from 2006 to 2019. This year, business applications in Wyoming have already surpassed 2019 levels, according to LendingTree.

There were over 20,000 new non-store retailers, or e-commerce shops, applications in July. Those are the type of business one might open up to take advantage of a side hustle, so it makes sense with the COVID-19 crisis ripped through the country.

This year, there was a large spike in business applications after the CARES Act was signed into law on March 27.
