I know we feel a lot of difficulties during this pandemic. Anxiety and depression strike and it hit us hard; we were at ease with the lifestyle that we have. The majority of the people who are working lose their jobs, there are students who decided to stop their studies because their parents are scared that they might get sick if they go to school.
Indisputably, we were caught unprepared by this Covid-19 virus and this unfortunate event changed our lives and made us realize many things. Yes, some of us are trying to withstand it, however, life goes on, we have to move on. Don’t let this pandemic stand in our way. We have to do something for us to survive. Every day, we should have food on our table. Yet, the dilemma is how can we provide it if we don’t have a source of income. The time has come, we have to reinvent ourselves. Turn our passion into profit.
We should unleash the potential that we have. Let us learn new skills that we can employ to attain our necessities. While I’m in an Enhanced Community Quarantine, I am thinking about how I can help my fellow Filipinos. I thought through writing I can help them to be motivated and encouraged. I listened to various business gurus so that I can share the business ideas and opportunities that I have learned to others. We can still earn money even if we are staying at home. Working From Home is the key. So these are the business ideas that I have gathered from them and I would like to share it with you.
