Even with the small business stimulus packages the pandemic has left many out of work, with reduced hours, and uncertain about both their career and financial future. It is forcing us to think outside the box. Does this mean that now is the perfect time to launch your own business?
You Have The Time
If you have had a business idea floating around in your head for a while but haven’t had the time to work on it, now you do! So, even if you don’t get up and running right away build your foundation. Find a startup business consultant and invest in the training you require to get up and running. Not sure where to begin? Look for a virtual masterminds group.
Consider A Side Gig
If money is tight or you are looking for a new way to fill your time, freelancing is an excellent option. If you make an art, craft or any type of tangible custom product—sell it online. If you sell a digital product or can provide remote products or services, join a freelance site like Upwork or Fiverr. Also, reach out to former clients and connection via LinkedIn to see if they can utilize your skills on a contract basis.
Here’s to thinking outside the box and creating your custom career!
