There is a rather large amount of uncertainty at the moment. There has been a fair amount of upheaval in the last 2 years in the UK and there are many people who have had to make choice of doing what we have done for such a long time, or opt to go in a completely new direction and face uncertainty. Of course, Brexit was the dominant theme like a dark cloud on the horizon, so predicting future trends took a large hit as we do not like predicting anything if we are in doubt as to where we are going.
Even now, there are many others who still await the future impact that Brexit will have. We just trust that the right decision has been made, and put our faith in the politicians, which for many is an uncomfortable position.
There is now another even greater threat which is having an even greater effect, this time it is a global threat and is throwing the whole world into chaos. Corona virus is here, and who would have predicted that in 2020, we would all be thrown into this turmoil.
Corona Virus 2020 has now been given pandemic status and the loss of life continues, the ability for normal life to continue is in doubt, lock-downs are in place in many countries. Self-isolation is what we are being told to do, as the search for a clear way forward is being sought by the major powers. People are going into a frenzy of stocking up on household goods just in case we have to go into hiding for a sustained period. People are buying toilet rolls like there is no tomorrow. It’s maddening! It’s frightening! It was and is still unpredictable.
What if anything can we do to help predict what the future trends are? How can we not allow other issues to knock our fragile world? As entrepreneurs, what can we do to ensure that we are moving in the right direction without taking advantage of the current plight of others? Some people will do just that, take advantage of the suffering of others just to ensure that they get what they want. Isn’t it human nature to profit from the misery of others or should it be the exact opposite, to help others to feel safe and secure when the threat of danger is great?
Personally, I am going to keep focused on the business of helping others. My immediate future trend is to make sure that I best position myself so that what I do brings comfort, safety and security to others by providing the possibility of a better future by getting involved in internet marketing.
Having to be physically isolated from the world does not mean that the online business stops. In fact, it becomes a greater opportunity for others to try out, to see the benefits of not having leaving the house, flat or castle. This is an unpredicted trend occurring in real time, it’s trending now.
The internet social channel scene is going into a frenzy, and if it isn’t it should be. This is what the world wide web was unpredicted to be capable of doing, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram should be helping others in need by being an invisible helpline.
The greatest outcome lesson of this current pandemic should be that people should see the possibilities of having a stay at home business. They should be aware of this and as entrepreneurs we have a great opportunity to encourage others to do so, not by exploiting their unexpected position, but by using the current situation to predict their future trend, one of which is starting their own internet business. We should be yelling at them to see the possibility that is occurring in real time.
