Coronavirus (COVID-19) and Entrepreneurship

Thank you for joining me today on the Frugalpreneur podcast. I am your host, Sarah St John. I apologize I missed last week. I was congested last week from a cold, but I felt the show must go on, so I recorded an episode, and it sounded like nails on a chalkboard. But, I’m back. And for the record, no it wasn’t coronavirus. But, that brings me to what I want to discuss today, and that is coronavirus, but not in the sense you’ve been hearing and reading about. I want to talk about how it reinforces the importance of entrepreneurship. Let me explain.

So many people are being hit right now financially, things are being cancelled left and right, and people are having to stay home. If you have a job where you can work from home, that’s great. But many people don’t because maybe they are in the service industry. With some people having to go potentially weeks without an income, it is a reminder of how important…maybe even vital in this day and age…that one should have a means of supplemental income. A side hustle, if you will. A way to make extra money under normal circumstances, and potentially life changing money under current circumstances. If you do not have an online business as of yet, I encourage you: now is the time. Maybe you’ve been thinking about it for quite some time, but haven’t found the time. Use this time at home to be productive and start a business or side hustle, and make money online from home. For some ideas, you can listen to my episode entitled “Why Have An Online Business” or for much more detailed information, check out my book on Amazon entitled “Frugalpreneur: How to Launch, Manage, and Market Your Online Business for Under $100/Mo”. These would be useful resources if you have yet to start an online business or side hustle. 

As always, if you have any questions, you can always tweet me @thesarahstjohn â€‹next time…stay safe.

Until next time…Stay healthy. Wash those hands. And for the love of all that is sanitary….stop buying all the toilet paper. Toilet paper won’t save you. But an online business could.
