Grete Somermaa started her side hustle in March 2020 when her family had to close down their family-run restaurant following the pandemic. With two young children to provide for, Grete set up an online business selling digital downloads on Etsy, which has allowed her to stay at home in Estonia while earning an income.
Rewind Grete’s life two years and it’s a completely different story to the one she lives today.
The coronavirus pandemic had such a devastating effect on her family’s restaurant that they had no option but to close for good, leaving Grete with no income yet two small children to feed.
