Quarantine has created delightful Shakespeare plague memes which make us laugh, but they also have a point. Many people struggle to carve out uninterrupted time throughout their hectic lives to sit down and write that screenplay or finalize the business plan for the sidegig they passionately devote time to during the week. With life cancelled and several countries on lockdown due to the coronavirus, there’s been a spike in TV watching and visiting Pornhub. Understandable, considering the circumstances. But since it seems like we’re hunkering down for the long haul, perhaps this (hopefully) once-in-our-lifetime pandemic could instead be an opportunity for us to set a course for a more stable financial future.
Hear me out
There’s no doubt folks in service industries and in customer service have it tougher because it’s impossible to work from home when your job is serving food or bartending, for example. But, for many hopeful entrepreneurs, being forced to stay indoors… hey, that’s opportunity knocking.
Imagine. What would it be like to emerge from isolation with a solid business plan for your own company? Then stepping over the financial ruins of the stock market to the equity crowdfunding arena where there’s a 60% average raise rate, tangible inclusivity and 67% of each dollar stays in the community. Especially knowing that DigitalAMN is there to financially support new and seasoned entrepreneurs during the process. Seriously, ask us how.
New world order
Wall Street is likely to continue receiving more corporate socialism in the form of bailouts, but that’s not an option for the rest of us. Crowdfunding provides an alternate path to raising startup money and clearing the valley of death – especially for the swath of entrepreneurs who aren’t white guys from Yale. The economic rubble that will be left in the wake of coronavirus could represent a fresh start in a new business or career someone is passionate about. Uninterrupted time away from distractions, a social life and the office, could be the catalyst for the next unicorn startup everyone would be scrambling to invest in next year – and it would be you who created it.
Don’t just take our word for it
“The mind is sharper and keener in seclusion and uninterrupted solitude. Originality thrives in seclusion free of outside influences beating upon us to cripple the creative mind. Be alone, that is the secret of invention. Be alone, that is when ideas are born.” – Nikola TeslaBy Kirsten Campbell
