Although I had a bunch of masks available to me at home, I ordered another 50 pair. Yes, I started stocking up again just like how I did in the beginning of the pandamic. The numbers are peaking again. Although, the government is being conservative with the shut down, we are not far away from it.
Although this pandamic was the absolute terrible, I had my perks of not having to commute to work, I saved money on commute, I saved money on eating out. I had time to focus on myself and take care of my mental health over all.
But I want you all to think about the ones who has lost their jobs during the pandamic. It wasn’t as pretty for them as they all had to focus on getting another job or changing their career path and skill set. Think about it for it, if you still have a job then you are lucky but, let’s say the second wave it and you were the next to get laid off or fired?!
How much security do you have in your job? Almost zero, and that stands true even if there was no pandamic. Pandamic just makes everything worse, we can all agree on that!
Therefore, we need to upgrade our skills, always be aware of the current trends, and prepare for the future.
I always tell my audience to always, always, always, try to gain another source of income. Yes, not one but, two. One can pay your bills and the other you can re-invest to build wealth. There are some of you who are going to be like, no money can’t buy happiness. Money can’t, and I agree but it does buy you a bit of freedom and comfort to easily have time for what makes you the happiest.
Think about what I wrote, and share your ideas to help others grow!
Hello World, As you know I like learning about financial freedom. It’s not for everyone – yes, I laughed as I wrote that. I say that because, most people look at this motivators and always think how do I get that fancy, luxury, free money and then they actually want a short cut to it. …
Figure out how much money you are taking home and subtract the amount you are spending. Be sure to keep all that surplus money at work, by paying down high interest debt first and then investing the rest. Once the total value of all your investments reaches 25-30 times your annual spending, paid work is now …
Hello World, I don’t often speak about politics but, I hope you all read world news and are aware of what is happening around the world other than the pandamic. Farmers are the heart of India and a new bill is being passed to privatize farming. This will mean in the name of free market, …
I have learned over the years that there is a lot community managment that is involved in keeping the engagement on your blogs/social media flowing. People are engaged when there is communication! I love that you all write comments and interact with me on my blogs. Honestly, I realized that actually helps so much for a creator to keep moving forward.
For example, on my blog of starting my YouTube channel, I received so much positive and encouraging comments. This shows that being real and vulnerbable with yoru readers builds a connection and creates a support system. I love hearing from your all and hearing your experiences.
If we don’t share our own journey, failures, and successes, other people will not be able to learn. That is exactly what I try to do with these blogs. I try to keep you all focussed and motivated for your own passions and goals. I want you to get to the lifestyle you are all striving to get to and I know you guys are doing a great job!
Thanks for showing me so much love and support! I hope to share more of journey as I take on more risks for my own personal growth!
Hello World, Many people don’t actully budget or count pennies like I do. Few of you live pay cheque to pay cheque. It’s sad that many don’t even have a financial plan. All they know is that they have to earn more and that will pay their expenses. However, I think everyone should have retirement …
I hope everyone is safe and healthy! What a time to live in right now!
Many of the small businesses are struggling and stocks are suffering. The best thing right now is real estate as there is less supply than demand due to low mortgage rate.
As Harvard Business Review reports, “When customers are separated from the work that’s being done behind the scenes to serve them, they appreciate the service less and then they value the service less.” Describe the steps you’re taking to mitigate risk and give them insight into the steps you’re taking to help the community.
That’s why small businesses should think about shifting their business online with a Digital strategy. The next generation has always shopped online. After the lockdown, digital sales have been grown twice.
As a business on a digital platform, you need to focus on consumer demand. First, what is trending, and will you be able to meet the demand due to influx of new consumers buying online.
Please let me know if you shifted your businesses online and what is your digital strategy?
Depending on which you culture and generation you belong to, you have brought up and pushed towards an education a different way. If you and your parents belonged to a high context culture, then education was higly emphasized. This means no matter what, you have to gain education.
Being encouraging towards education is excellent. However, the right education. We have to understand what the next emerging trend is and set the youth towards that. If you have debt and your degree/diploma doesn’t earn you a return then that’s bad debt!
Starting today, you have to be good with your finances to be able to attain finanical freedom. Think about your education (it’s a must) you have to learn to survive but you require skills that will bring in a return in the future.
There are tons of free courses and youtube channels that teach soft/technical skills. You do not actually need to gain that masters degree if you do not have that extra money. However, if you feel that a masters degree in anything will get you a promotion then by all means. I am always in support of upgrade. Though, I need you to know for sure that you will gain a return from your education.
To assess this, I need you to think about things that you are passionate about. This is actually very hard for some of you to assess. You just do not know what interests you as you have not explored enough. That’s why, it’s a good idea to read, learn from skillful youtube videos and learn from podcasts.
Do something challenging! Pick up a niche skill that not a lot of people will spend time and effort working towards. How else will you set yourself apart?
All my marketing experts and influencers understand how to get their target audience to respond and follow them. But do you know why you follow the people, products and organizations you do? Have you ever wondered why they appeal to you so much? You love what they stand for, you like what they do and share. You end up being a part of a crowd who also follows along with you. But do you ever follow because you see a growing number of followers, “400K” for instance and just for the crowd?
Face it, we follow because we like to be part of the crowd! We like to be part of what’s popular and the “400K” number. Did you know Gillette and Tide are still the number one popular brand in the market of razor and detergent for 50 years? We choose these brands simply because we think the crowed uses the same brand. Yes, we leave our judgement on the crowd, if more people are using it then it must be good.
We also like to be part of be a crowd because in reality we don’t like being singled out. If we are not part of a group then we have to face things alone. If we are not part of the group then we are afraid of being judged. No one wants to be judged by a group. That’s where bullies and peer pressure also stems from. In old saying, rather be part of a herd and not get attacked by other dangerous animals such as a the lion. A lion walks alone and hunts and plays as the bully.
We also follow because we relate. Have you ever wondered why meme’s are so popular? They are simple pictures of funny events you can relate to on a daily basis or a “Aha” moment. But then there is also transference. We follow certain leaders because we subconsciously see our childhood guardian in them. That explains the reason a lot of woman choose their life partners with similar personality traits as their father. You want to be led by people you feel can protect you.
Transference is interesting! Often it is seen that woman leaders have less followers than of the man, because a mother is not seen as the primary leader or the head of the household. They are a figure who loves you no matter what and also are the first person who would say no! This information originates back when you are choosing your present leaders. You end up using transference subconsciously with your immediate boss, VP, mentor, and people you choose as leaders.
