We’re officially in Week 2 of the compulsory ‘Stay Home’ period in Lagos, Abuja and some other parts of Nigeria. At this point, working from home is starting to ‘get old‘. All the things you thought you missed while you were at the office all day are starting to wear on you 😄. It ok; it’s only natural – there are many of us in this boat. Together, we’ll get through this.
On the other hand, there’s a bunch of us that don’t have the luxury of working from home. Thus, this period for us is a compulsory ‘holiday’. This can be particularly tedious. However, we’d just like to encourage you a little bit today, and let you know that this too shall pass.
You can use this period you’re at home to work on new stuff. Here are some options:
Start that side hustle you’ve been putting off for years – now, you have time
Many of us have been working on our business plans for ages. Now is a good time to settle down and finish it up.
There’s a bunch of courses you can take to upgrade your skills this stay home period, and set yourself up for success Post-Corona. Pluralsight is offering all its courses for FREE this April. Harvard Business School Online is also offering free business lessons. You can start there.
This is the very least you can do, really 😄
At UBS Digital, we’re offering a FREE consultation for people looking to launch a new side hustle or take their business online. All you have to do is call us on 08149906220 or drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll be happy to chat. Also, we’re offering SIGNIFICANT discounts on all our products and services to help you during this ‘Stay Home’ period.
Basically, whatever you think we can do to help you, don’t be afraid to ask.
Finally, let’s all do what we can to help one another get through this trying time. If you know someone that wasn’t able to stock up before the curfew, send them some money to buy groceries if you can. And if you visit the market one of these days, maybe buy something for your neighbour who can’t. Nothing is too small. And remember, we shall overcome.
Until next time, stay safe.
