It would be impossible to ignore the irrevocable changes that have and are occurring in the financial world as a result of the COVID-19 epidemic. As I write this post a part of me wonders if by the time it is finished, I will have to re-write it in order to account for new changes across the globe. Suffice it to say, COVID-19 has presented us with the challenge, or if you are fortunate enough to be in a position to reframe this perspective, an opportunity to seek out new connections, dig deeper within ourselves and push to find a way through.
But what’s on the other side of all this? Is there even a foreseeable end?
It is considered by some to be human nature to fear change. However, I ask you, embrace the unknown wherever possible. While there is so much about this devastating epidemic that is out of our control, for the lucky ones who have not experienced direct impact of sickness or death of a loved one, there are a few things we can control. We can take this opportunity to motivate ourselves, to enjoy spending time in the pleasure of our own company. To get creative when “seeing” loved ones. To find opportunities for financial growth in new marketplace niches that have emerged through the cracks in the foundation of our global economy. All while protecting our generation of elders by adhering to the words of Dr. Bonnie Henry “be calm, be kind, be safe”.
