Second Wave – Be Prepared For Unemploymeent / Lay offs?

Hello World,

Two day delay but here I am once again! So it’s going to be a hard hit everyone so be prepared.

The economy already went through the first wave and saw a round of lay offs. Lay offs are not plesant. Long back, I was layed off from a position. The compnay was doing “Re-Org” which, basically means they are trying to save cost. At that time, I didn’t have a job for 6 months. Good thing, I wasn’t completely alone. I had family support and a roof to stay.

Looking back, I couldn’t find a job for 6 months because, I lacked experience, I didn’t know where to look, how to properly set up my resume, didn’t know anyone or have any connections, and the last but the main point, it is hard to find a job! You have to keep looking and trying until you land a position because, more than 1,000’s others are also interested and trying their luck on the same position.

Second wave will be a hard hit everyone so be prepared! When I say be prepared, I mean to say, please have a second source of income or at least update your skills.

Friends saying, the purchases of appliances such as fridge has gone up, why? Because, pepole are preparing to stack up for the second wave. My doctor friends and family are stating that they are cutting health care worker hours, just to save cost at this time. Even depressing enough, we are in debt as a country!

$768 billion – According to data from Statistics Canada, net debt (gross debt minus assets) as of March 2019 was approximately CAD$768 billion. With a total GDP of approximately CAD$2.2 trillion, Canada’s overall net-debt/GDP ratio is about 34%.”

This is concerning and depressing as more covid patients are coming in, yet we are cutting cost of health care workers.

So for your own good! I want you to research a skill that will be valued at this time. Save and invest your money. Invest in yourself. I want you to look up different ways of passive income. Try putting up your skills on Fiverr and Skillshare. Try developing a course on Udemy. I want you to have that extra flow of income coming in. It’s not easy but, I want you to atleast try for it. Growth is key!

Thank you for your love and support as usual!

What is Required in a Good Partner?

Hello World,

First of all you need to be a good partner to yourself. Yes, you need to be content with where you stand in life. You need to at least know your plans and goals. Don’t be a pushover and lost. If you don’t have it figured which, most of us have not… try to plan and know what you want.

Many people who are always lost and lack initiative would tell you, yes but, everyone is lost, you just don’t know what will come your way next. That is true, but at the same time, you need to know what you like and don’t and stay true to your values.

Right off the bat, good money sense! You don’t want someone who doesn’t know what they are doing with their money. You don’t want someone drowning in debt, you don’t want someone who is not saving! Also, you don’t want someone who doesn’t have a retirement fund.

Trust/Understanding. You need to find a best frined in the partner. They need to understand your drive and purpose. Again going back to my first point, you have to have drive and purpose. You have to keep on working on yourself. Growth is the key to life.

Understanding comes from open communication. Don’t be afraid to have deep conversation so you both can learn more about each other on an intellectual and emotional level. This will allow both of you to keep yourself honest.

I feel those are the core for a good partner. Obviously, there are more things to add per your own personal preference.

Thank you,

Your Hard Work Matters: Accomplishment

Hello World,

What gets you going in the morning? For me, it has to be the goals that I have. But you know what helps? It’s knowing that I have some stability to pursue it. So when people say money doesn’t buy happiness… yes, I see this being misconstrued. Money can’t ever buy happiness. Happiness is subjective to your own beliefs. However, money eases struggle and give you time to focus on your happiness. Hence, money is important. (I know some of you are itching to comment! haha)

I want you to invest in yourself and challenge yourself to learning new treding skills that make you more valuable in the market. Learning a new skill in itself is a form of accomplishment. Not only is accomplishment fruitful to your own peace but, it’s valuable. It will gain you success in your line of work, giving you monetary freedom.

I want you to think about a skill you can learn today. Be a well rounded informed person. You don’t have to be a genius in all areas but, you have so much information for free these days that there is no way you can’t be informative.

If I asked you about Blockchain today, how many of you can tell me what it is? If you can’t then please go read about it a little bit and become fimiliar. If I asked you about trading and ETF’s, how many of you can tell me the long term advantage? If you can’t, then youtube some videos. Become a good researchers. Learn to ask the right questions!

Accomplishments adds value to your life as at the end, you can look back and be proud of how you spent your time.

Hello World,

If you still have not picked up that hobby, you should soon as Gen Z’s are already on it. Did you know that Millenials are richer than baby boombers? Yes, they don’t save money, but they make a lot of money. It’s going to be even more for Gen Z’s… any guesses why?

Gen Z’s are going to be more wealthier because, we are making a shift in the education system. Millenials earned more but they had student debts. Gen Z’s, with the current pandamic and TiKTok being their best friend, learned about trading stocks, ETF’s, options, and also opened up their own businesses. Did you see Shopify and Etsy stocks sky rocket? Yes, your lil Gen Z’s helpe you there.

This generation will be the rich kids in the block as they are making money from the get go with more applied real world skills. The opportunity older generation didn’t have. So how to keep up? Follow your passion. Pick up that skill today and think of ways to create passive income.

After you learn that new skill, there are various places you can sell it, be it Udemy, Etsy, Shopify, Obelo, freelancer.com… You name it! But first to gain that confidence, you need to invest in yourself a little bit. You have to learn that skill, practice, and just put samples out there for feedback.

How Much Money do You Need to Retire?

Hello World,

There are two types of retirement planning these days, old school societal plan and the new side hustle retirement plan. Old school societal retiremenat plan, tells you to look at the age you are currently and put your money away in investments (Tax Free Accounts if applicable) that way your money can grow in compounds. This will allow you to atleast reach atleast 700,000 to 1.2 million dollars by the time you are 60, given you have low expenses and save well.

The new side hustle retirement plan, tells you to have atleast 5 passive income sources where you are making about $10,000 dollars a month in total. This way you will make the retirement money quicker and also be financial freedom at present time. If you have time right now, don’t waste it. Learn a new skill! The more skillful you are at todays market, the better your position will be.

When thinking about retirment, you have to visualize your current lifestyle and spending and ask yourself if you will be able to maintain this without a job and with what is in your bank at the age of 60 / 65?

Now let’s say, you were going that tranditional route, then use this calculator:

https://www.tdcanadatrust.com/products-services/investing/retirement-savings-calculator/

This will help you see how much you need to save on a monthly basis.

I would suggest, maxing out your RRSP and TSFA (Savings/Investment brokerage) as much as you can.

What Free Sources Are You Using for Marketing? TIKTOK?

Hello World,

This quarantine has been tough for all of you. Specifically the small business owners. I have been keeping safety in mind and not heading out much. Hence, all my shopping has been from digital platforms.

However, I want to know what platforms are you all using to promote your small businesses? I have been on TIK TOK a lot lately which made me realize it’s power on free promotion. If you post 4 times a day, showcasing your products and services, you will increase your traction and sales.

I would suggest to go ahead and create a TIK TOK right now, if you haven’t done so already. Then post four times daily and try to find that balance of when you are receiving the most tracktion (likes, views, etc.). It won’t happen over night but consistency is key.

Here are some tips:

Post about your product/Service – do you make it by hand? how do you manufacture the item?

Your method of deliveryor process of packaging

Share business tips and ideas

Don’t be afraid to be vulnerable and share your mistakes

Let me know how it goes and your ideas as well!

Thank you,

What was Your Quarantine Project?

Hello World,

I alwasy try to motivate you all by giving you tips and tricks to organize your business and invest in your future. In addition, to that I help you slow down and give you information on how to tackle mental peace, anxiety, and stress while investing in your personal and professional goals.

In my pervious blog posts I have many shared many ways you can save and work towards a project of your own during the quarantine. So let me know your success / failure stories and how far you have come.

If you have not started then I want you to start! START

I came across an article recently talking about gaps in economy and/or technogical evolution is when entrepreneurs are created. So why are you waiting?

The main problem most people have is starting because, there are many underlying factors that they think they can’t over come. For example, starting a business requires you to register it. Another delay is, how will people react? – Yes, I know that’s most of your problem. How will people react and weather your project will be successful or not?

But the point is, you will never find out if you don’t try and reach out for help! One of the things to START with is RESEARCH! Research on how other people executed the project you are intersted in. Once you get the braoder idea, reach out to at least three people who have succeeded or are in the works of creating their project to get an overview and perspective of their experience. Trust me, they will share different experiences that will be valuable to your own success.

STORY TIME:

True Stroy 1:

I will share some success stories I have witnessed over the quarantine to motivate you. My friend had been let go from her job. She was depressed for a bit but then she picked up the camera she got as a gift (not too expensive) and started asking her friends and family to pose for her. She started learning how to edit the pictures. Every day she edited a picutre and became better at editing. First and foremost, she loved taking photographs. It started to become her passion. My friend started creating her portfolio which, led a fashion blogger to approach her for a photoshoot! Isn’t that just awesome? Do you know how many followers she will be exposed to now?

What does that story say? Just pick up something fun to do and keep working at it, the opportunities will follow.

True Stroy 2:

My coworker was slammed with homeschooling her kids while working. She has three kids and works in IT. To de-stress she started baking a lot over the weekends. She loved baking and that was one of the ways that she dealt with her anxiety. She started posting the cakes she would bake on social media. How long did this quarantine last us? 3 months? Well, within just three months she received several orders and grew a cliental and bakes 15 cakes per weekend.

True Stroy 3:

My friend was let go from the airport where she was a high ranking manager. She has marital issues and her personal life is a mess. To destress, she started painting old furniture. She would buy old furniture on Kijiji to replenish them. She would paint them looking new, added handles she bought from Kijiji or Amazon and resell them for great value. This is a boss story! This girl always inspires me to keep going!
