|I’m so tired of reading about this plague called Corona virus (covid19). I’m sure you must be tired too.|
But while we may seem tired already, we must focus on keeping ourselves safe, healthy and still profiting.
As I see it, a lock down of affected states or the country at large is almost here. If you have not started keeping yourself indoors like some of us, you might be forced to start soon.
Here are a few things to do if we get to the point of lock down.
Adhere strictly to all medical recommendations: Safety first guys, this is not the time to be overtly religious and careful. Trust in God but don’t suspend your brain.
Stay connected: This is the time to stay connected to both online media and traditional media. Get daily updates and be as aware as possible. Follow verified handles of both local and international agencies so as to get true and real time information. Biko, this is not the time for fake news.
Move your business online: Some of us have shouted about online business for the longest time, you must see why now. Physical shops will shutdown if they haven’t already but businesses will continue online. Hold virtual meetings with your staff and client, sell online, host online classes etc. Just move your business online as much as possible. For virtual meetings, use Zoom, Telegram, Closed Facebook groups etc. There are lots of options.
If you haven’t created an online model for your business before now, use this time for brain storming and creation. You will be home afterall??
Create a daily to-do list: This is quite essential to help you feel and remain productive. You’ll find quickly that boredom will set in, many may start feeling redundant and unproductive. A daily to-do list will help solve this problem.
Find alternative investment: We still need money to make it through this trying times right? Find alternative investments, forex is still a way to go. You don’t have to know the maths, there are some who help you invest and give you the proceeds. I know one that is 100% legit.
Stay Optimistic: Stay positive, pray for our scientists, medical practitioners, security agencies and those on the front line fighting this battle. Keep faith, will pull through this even stronger.
Keep faith, stay safe, don’t panic and keep a sound mind.
Peace, Love and Cold Zobo.
