When I read that fact I assumed that a large percentage were people selling wares on Etsy, but still, I found it encouraging. I wonder if it says anything about a basic income, since a lot of those people who started businesses were probably getting extended supplemental unemployment as a backstop. I'm sure 2021/22 are going to see a lot of business failures (to the extent people stop selling on Etsy or whatever), but a percentage, and hopefully a statistically significant one, will stick around.

(Also, $17/hr for a class is criminal at any level (and I include preschool in that) even if it includes prep time.)
