The past is over and gone, says in one of the lines of Air Supply’s Having You Near Me.
I think it is safe to say that the pandemic has drastically changed everybody’s lives. From a life of commuting our ways to our respective offices very early in the morning and arriving home from work late in the evening, everyone was forced to work from home. Worse, many ended up unemployed.
The once busy streets became barren. Shopping centers became empty. Long queues in transport terminals, seaports, and airports disappeared. The whole world became a rural village of some sort.
And although countries are somehow doing what they can to keep economies up and running as best as they can, travel restrictions and health protocols still prevent industries from going full-blast.
Is there a chance that we could all go back to our old lives? Who can tell?
In my humble opinion, it is best to assume that we are not.
We live in a world that continues to change. And there is nothing we can do about that but to accept that it happens.
The more important question is this: are we gearing ourselves for change?
The song Please Mr. Postman was a hit in the ’60s and ’70s. If you hear that song nowadays, do you think you could still relate given the availability of electronic mail? Or does anybody still even know what a postman is?
The point I would like to drive in is the fact that the bustling industries of today can be gone in a snap tomorrow. With so many people laid off from work due to the pandemic, how sure are we that people who lost employment still have jobs to return to once the global threat of the coronavirus is over? It could be that the position is no longer available not because somebody else filled in the vacancy but that the job itself is no longer relevant with the times!
Therefore, it is imperative for all of us to upgrade our skills. This is not to say that it is easy. However, we must look at it as a must!
Upgrading our skills would require us to spend on our education. And that would certainly cost a lot of money! And to think that is even possible at a time when people are struggling with their finances due to the pandemic is really hard.
But what if I tell you that there is such a window of opportunity to upgrade your skills during these trying times? And you can do so while establishing your own digital business that revolves around your life interests!
I was able to join a community that helps people build their own businesses around their passions in life. More importantly, they advocate a laptop lifestyle, where one can earn in the convenience of their time and at the place of their choosing.
I am currently learning the ropes of having a digital business. Step-by-step, I am receiving guidance and training on how to build a business around my passions.
I consider deciding to have a digital business a milestone, given that I was able to set up a website of my own in just two weeks. That of course did not happen without me having to learn e-commerce and other pieces of training to help motivate me into pushing through with a digital business.
More importantly, with the business that I have, I also have access to numerous training courses which I am using not only to improve my business but also to upgrade my skills! In fact, learning to do the business is already in itself an ongoing training for me considering that I am not a technology-savvy person.
The training courses that I am undertaking are duly recognized and certified.
Slowly but surely, I believe that I am getting myself prepared for whatever changes may happen around us. But it all started with one thing: the decision to create a life that I want.
If ever we want to upgrade, it should be now. We should not dilly-dally because the world changes even without us being able to prepare ourselves. It will not wait for us to be ready.
Which sounds appealing to you? Is it continued education or an online business? Why choose when you can have both? I can help you gain access to that window of opportunity.
By starting your own digital business, you also open the possibility of additional income streams. Just imagine the possibilities when the global economy starts picking up and your business is already set up to reap the benefits of a bustling global economy after the pandemic. Start your own business now and start getting access to continued education that will improve your life skills!
