It’s no news the current pandemic currently ravaging the world. Lives have been claimed, family members lost, jobs shut down and many other negative things. You can say this lock down has been “disastrous”, even “fatal”. But, you can not deny the fact that this lock down has been a great source of help to some people. Many people have made money, some are wishing the lock down would never end.
Let us look at some examples together.
In the first quarter of 2020, Tiktok had over 350 million downloads! And generated a revenue of 5.6 billion dollars in 3 months. Whoosh!
Facebook generated a revenue of 17.74 billion dollars just in the first quarter of 2020. Enough statistics.
Have you admitted it already that these people have made more money as a result of this lock down?
The human mind always looks for ways to survive. How have you been surviving? People are stuck in their houses, looking for new means of survival each day. People have done everything they could possibly do right now and they are looking for more things to keep them busy?
WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO OFFER?
You have absolutely no excuse right now. Your work is no longer taking your time, your school is no longer taking your time, nothing is taking your time. What are you using your time for?
Now would be the perfect time to utilize your time, hone your craft, get a new skill, pick up a new hobby, learn a craft, drop some old habits and pick up new ones. if you already had skills before now, start selling it while also perfecting it.
Right now, people would buy almost anything you sell to them.
If you need extra cash, become a freelancer and work from absolutely anywhere in the world.
Make new friends and reconnect old friendships that died because of negligence due to being “busy”.
Use this time to learn more about your kids. That roommate that you just can’t seem to understand, use this time to know him/her.
Remember, you have absolutely no excuse.
