As the covid-19 pandemic continues to run its course throughout the world, millions of people are being laid off or let go from their day jobs or out of contractual work of any kind. This leads me to ask, why not start a second income stream?
It is a very dim and frightening situation. No question.
But we cannot let fear overtake us.
Many of you have a lot of time on your hands. Some are bored. Many are stressed and not sleeping at night. Others are indecisive because of fear. It looks very bleak.
There is nothing but bad news on all the media outlets. So maybe it’s time to stop watching and reading that s#$%, and do something more productive.
For years I have listened to potential candidates tell me “Deb, I just don’t have the time to start a side gig or home-based business. I’m maxed out!”
First of all, no one is really maxed out. It is an easy excuse to say no to an opportunity that requires work. What it really comes down to, are your priorities in life. It comes down to your ‘why’.
Guess what? Your priorities have now changed. Frankly, everything has changed. You have a new ‘why’.
So let’s look at the positive. Chaos brings opportunities.
“In the midst of chaos, there is also opportunity.” – Sun-Tzu
Of course, for you who are in panic mode, you look at me and say “are you kidding me?”
No, not at all. We as a human race have dealt with crises in the past and we will deal with this one too!
To paraphrase singer, Donna Summer, “we will survive.”
As I said in the previous blog, it will take time but we will have to weather the storm. But more importantly, we have to be flexible and innovative than ever before. That is what survival is all about.
“Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.” – Theodore Roosevelt
These words from the 1900s have never been more appropriate.

You have the ‘time’ and now you have the ‘why.’
