Opportunity is knocking so open the door

Last Update: August 01, 2020

Well My friends out in WA Land I hope the WAnderers and WArriors are all still part of the WAmily.

How is it all going for you?

I won't lie to you but, 2020 has not really been my year.

Actually 2020 has not been anybodies year has it?

I have not blogged on here in a while and in fact I have not been blogging much at all. This has been due to illness (NOT COVID) and life pressures but, we all have life pressures.

Why am I writing Today?

I want to tell you a story about a middle-aged Graphic Designer with a good job and a great family life. This guy spent his complete life working so that all around him could enjoy the benefits with him. Does this sound familiar?

2020 came along and changed the complete demographic of global life. The virus has changed the way that we carry out our day to day lives and it will have a lasting effect in to the future.

Of course we can benefit from all of this global paranoia. People are now shopping and living more in the online world. I even bought a new car online. The only physical job was picking it up. I could have had it delivered.

The change in My Life

In the UK we have the furlough scheme. For those of you not in the UK it was a scheme setup by our government to keep as many people employed as possible whilst the pandemic ravished our economy. Basically the government paid 80% of your wages and you sat at home waiting for it to end.

This has been and amazing scheme but, everything comes to and end.

This week I received a call from the owner of my company who, has decided to shut down my graphics division. This means I am being made redundant. For the first time in about 30 year I will be officially unemployed.


Here is where everything changes.

The Owner is shutting down a department of his business and moving away from that market which has been severely effected by COVID. Because of this I am made redundant but, the owner has offered me the business for FREE. I set up this business and I developed the customer base.

He is going to give me 1 year of free operation. No Rent, Rates, Utilities. I also get usage of all printers and equipment and I only have to pay for consumables. I also get access to the customer database and company recommendation.


I think this is an amazing opportunity for me to get a physical business up and going with minimal startup costs and 1 year of support. I can also bring sections of my online business to the physical business.

What am I saying?

I guess what I am saying is that in every disaster there is always a shred of opportunity. Take the chances that are presented too you and run with them for as far as you can.

I could just sit here and be unemployed but, I would rather fight for my future. I recommend that you do the same.

Thanks for reading.

I believe that as well. Success is just a measurement tool for hard work.

I always say that success is a choice.
