This is Coach Phil Tran, Owner and Head Coach of PT Strength. I say this not to be “holier than thou.” I say this to inspire others to greatness. We all win when you win.
Revenues have been down for my businesses for obvious reasons. However, I am working more than ever during this quarantine and it has been awesome.
First, knowledge is not contained within four walls. The amount of *free* and *discounted* education from legitimate sources in all subjects available on the internet right now is insane. You do not even have to tune in live most of the time because many live events are recorded for posterity. If you are not getting smarter, you wasted a golden opportunity to get thousands of dollars of education for free.
Second, revenues have been down for me because I can’t meet with clients in person and sadly, some of my clients have lost their jobs. I do what I can to help my people. However, instead of feeling sorry for myself because I am not making as much money, I work. I have secured new clients during the quarantine who I have never met in person. We are conducting online training sessions as effectively as if I were there in person. The way we do business will change significantly after the quarantine and I am retooling my businesses for new opportunities and growth. I am prepared for business to be bigger and better than ever once the crisis is over.
It is okay to enjoy a diversion and some entertainment. I certainly have done so in a healthy manner during these times. Big shoutout goes to all the talented musicians and DJs providing free shows and to all the cute animal videos on the internet. However, I have not been watching television all day. I haven’t had television for over ten years. There has been zero boredom in my household.
With all the free educational resources and free time at your disposal, if you made it through the quarantine without gaining new useful knowledge, acquiring new practical skills, revamping your business for the new economy, or monetizing an interest for a side gig, then no one is interested in hearing your complaints.
The world is not out to get you. You got yourself.
