Inflation is hurting small businesses’ ability to hire and retain workers. As such, businesses are forced to raise prices on consumers.
Gabrielle Pickard-Whitehead is a freelance writer and journalist based in the verdant hills of the Peak District, the U.K.’s oldest National Park. Since finishing her degree in Media and Journalism at John Moores University in Liverpool, Gabrielle has followed her passion for writing and sculptured a rewarding career out of her love for the written word, writing predominantly for local newspapers and websites.
