Friend, we are now living in a full fledged digital economy whereby countless opportunities are being realised. It is indeed an exciting period in our lives, thanks to the internet which has brought such ease of doing business. However, you need the right knowledge and skills to effectively participate and profit from this new digital economy. It is a time where businesses no longer rely on outdated brick and mortar systems. They now rely on automation through the interconnectedness of the world via the internet. This means you can effectively do a business and manage it online from across different continents just by the click.
If this does not excite you, then there is a lot of mindset development you need, and you need it quickly before you miss out on these numerous opportunities.
Recently, in the UK I woke to the news that a huge number of High Street retail shops had closed and this resulted in the loss of jobs. As if that is not enough, I have also observed with my own eyes while walking in the High Street that a huge number of shops are either closed or are up for letting. This is because the digital economy has taken over, such that, for example where people used to go down to the shops to buy clothes or for window shopping, they now just buy what they want online, while in the convenience of their homes.
It is no longer viable to just think of business in the traditional sense of how we used to know it. Things have changed and so should we. It is very important for all of us to adapt and embrace the new realities of what the internet has brought to humanity. To some, the internet has brought with it new opportunities but to others new headaches and miseryt. It's a curious case of either you adapt or you sink. I choose to adapt and live.
Blessed are the flexible for they shall not break.
When you live life with a degree of flexibility and openness, it sets you up nicely for new opportunities and to a life of freedom, success and fulfilment. One philosophy in life is that "it goes on", "Life goes on". Therefore whether you choose to ignore the realities of the internet or not, it won't change the fact that the economy is now digital. I care about you so much to want to advise you to embrace these changes with openness and due diligence that it derseves. Don't just take my word for it, just stroll the internet and you will see how it is now very much possible to, for example to carry out successful businesses in other countries even if you don't reside there. Better still, you don't even need to own a warehouse to keep your goods. For example, Amazon allows you to source your goods and use their systems to store your goods and deliver them to your customers while you get your money. This is just one of the simplistic example of how the internet can help you create your own business and lifestyle you want.
Personally, the reason I started an online business had to do with the quality of life and lifestyle I envisioned.I wanted a life of freedom, whereby I can work wherever and whenever I want to and feel free to choose how, when, and with who I spend my time. I realised that I was never going to live my dream lifestyle if hadn't made a decision to learn the new skills of the digital economy. As part of my corporate responsibility, I implore you to do the same and start your own journey. Going through this journey will inspire you, challenge you and transform you. NO FEAR, NO LIMITS!
