Do you think the world will remain the same after this pandemic?

Definitely not.

Changes are already taking shapes in different aspect of life in the world already, the pandemic is revealing new perspective about life, people are beginning to understand the scale of preference that was thought to them by their economy teacher during their school days

The thing is everything is already affected, including major institutions that shape society – family, schools and churches.

How well are you understanding change during this period?

We have all had the popular saying that change is constant, it’s also true that the most important thing to learn about change is that it always comes with two things disappointment and opportunities.

To go through changes and still come out heads up and mind intact is always as a result of the decisions, to make the best out of changing situation, to focus on finding and exploring the opportunities that comes with change.

Entrepreneurs understand this very well, they know that changes that affect human psychology like the one we are experiencing right now comes with a lot of opportunities because of the fact that human behaviours are changing.


How the pandemic is affecting peoples life

People are beginning to be more health-conscious and are adjusting their lifestyles.

People are learning to spend wisely

Internet usage is on the spark, because people are spending a lot of time online

People are adopting a new work style, like hiring freelancers instead of employing a full time workers, and working from home instead of engaging in every day of 9 to 5, business models are changing.

While this stands as an opportunity to some people with positive mindset towards change, it’s also a threat to some entrepreneurs in some niches and industries.
