Reshaping The Economy
Updated: Sep 12, 2020
Whether we like it or not, right before our eyes, in our careers, in our homes, the world’s economy is shifting.
The job that you previously HAD to commute to work for is the very same job that you are sitting on your couch doing right now.
The previously acknowledged and underlying issues that our economy has are all on the surface and exposed. So, what do we do? We can complain and be angry at our government and repeatedly to no avail tell and expect them to fix it. OR we can realize just how much we ARE the power behind the economy.
Actually, we exist in all roles and are moving parts that create the cycles of the economy.
We are the Consumer, Competition, Supply, Demand & Labor.
Just about everything as we have known it, including healthcare, the workforce, the value of the dollar, communication, human interaction, etc. Our entire society has been broken down and will need rebuilding.
So how do we do that? Where do we even start?
Here are some of my takeaways from this entire experience:
Home Based Employee/Business
I have been working from home primarily for the past 5 years. So, while this is a complete shock to some, I know firsthand the benefits of a home based business when we’re not forced to due so during a pandemic.
Some people may very well not be returning to their jobs in an office building.
Employer: Less overhead, less liability therefore lower insurance premiums.
Employee: The opportunity to better control the energy of the work space, more of work/life balance & no commuting
Business Owners: Less overhead & Tax deductions for home office space
