CORONAVIRUS: Another Reason to Make Money Online
Coronavirus is spreading fast.
Some people can't go to work.
Airlines are cancelling flights.
Events are being cancelled.
Many small businesses are going bankruptcy.
But there's still something positive for us online entrepreneurs....
Discussions From Entrepreneurs
I’m in a Facebook group for Finnish entrepreneurs called “Yrittajat” (=it means Entrepreneurs in Finnish).
Recently, a lot of entrepreneurs have posted that their business is greatly suffering from the consequences of coronavirus. Some have told that their whole business is in danger of going to bankruptcy.
It’s very sad that it happens and I wish all the best for those people. I hope that their business will recover and/or they will find ways to do business even while this coronavirus epidemic.
However, when reading those posts I realized how blessed you and me are because we are building online businesses.
We can operate our businesses normally despite coronavirus. And the revenue may even increase because a lot of people spend now time at their homes scrolling the Internet and they spend money online.
This is just another reason why I love making money online and why I also recommend it to others. It’s so flexible that even coronavirus can’t hit it.
Maybe this is also an opportunity for people who have been running physical brick-and-mortar businesses to start making money online… I believe there’s always something to learn in every situation.
Another Example - 2 Months Sick Leave Lasted Only 12 Hours
In another post in that “Entrepreneurs” group someone showed pictures of himself and said that he had been injured. He got a surgery and a doctor wrote him a sick leave for 3 months.
Now he was asking people for advice on how to survive.
A lot of people came and commented that they had also had similar experiences. They’ve got injured at some point in life and couldn’t work for several months.
Last November I also injured my chest/shoulder and had to go to a surgery. The doctor wrote me 2 months sick leave. Now if I would be running a business that requires my physical effort (for example massage, dentist, etc.), that would have been a complete disaster for me.
However, because I make money online, I was able to start working already on the next day.
Well, my right hand was out of the game for a few weeks so it was still limiting my work ability but still comparing to many other jobs, I was able to do much more work. For example, recording videos worked fine.
Let’s Appreciate What We Have
It’s true that all kinds of jobs have their ups and downs. Even affiliate marketing isn’t all sunshine and rainbows.
But I would argue that affiliate marketing is one of the most flexible jobs on this planet.
You can do it anywhere, anytime and even coronavirus can’t affect it.
I’ve often been thinking that affiliate marketing is probably the easiest way to get a full freedom of your life and time.
Have a great weekend!
