Near the beginning of 2020 the largest ever remote work experiment spread throughout the world. Knowledge job sectors such as tech, finance and media began adapting to a work home environment. What was expected to be short term, is now here for the long hall.
Regardless of how things persist and limp back to normalcy, we are heading into a “new normalcy” where face-to-face meetings will be used less, and digital interaction utilized more. Traveling to meet someone in person, will have less weight to it because it may “wastes time.” …
The freelance market looks to be evolving into a tech-focused market place. People who freelance and support the economy directly on their computers will see more job opportunities. The results from this may lead to more freelance gig economy platforms.
So how is big tech fairing in the COVID19 economy?
Despite tech companies who need their customers traveling, such as Airbnb and Uber, the market is looking pretty good. Although Uber and Airbnb have lost considerable sales during the crisis, it turns out the non-tech hotel and taxi competitors are exposed even more. So even if both of these companies in the short term do not fare well, their list of non-tech competitors will most likely not be around in the future. …
Times are tough, and it may get even tougher. In the last 5 weeks the US economy has seen a staggering 26 million file for unemployment. To put that in perspective, in the last decade 22 million jobs have been created in the US alone. Progress wiped out within weeks.
When restrictions eventually open up, normality will not be the same. Society will most likely still be wearing masks, social distancing will still be practiced while we work our hardest to test everyone so we can track and contain the virus.
But what would this new economy look like? What skills should we be preparing for when opportunities arise? What skills do you have right now, that can be used with this new climate? Let’s dive into the sectors that we may expect growth. …
So are you a startup? Or maybe plan to create a startup but worry this might not be the right time? Think again. It turns out recessions are actually an ideal time to start your new idea.
You may have heard the consistent remarks coming from investors:
“What makes a good startup is heavily based on the founding team’s ability to solve a problem for a paying customer.”
For the majority of startups solving this problem can relate to “cutting out the middlemen” or inventing a “better tool.” Thus, bringing faster, cheaper or better solutions to the customers.
When the economy is booming, there is a lot of money and noise coming from the existent developed competitors. These competitors are also solving the same problems as you. Don’t have a competitor? You most likely do. There is always a competitor for a startup. People do or use something to currently solve the problem you are working on. Whatever that solution is for that customer right now, that’s your competitor. …

Back on February 19th, 2020 we covered an article regarding how companies in Singapore, Hong Kong & China were having people work from home. At the time it was an unprecedented experiment. Now, one month later it’s not limited to just 3 countries. It’s now becoming the largest global experiment in our modern-day history. This may bring the needed change of the rooted 9 to 5 office job.
Yes, there were other times where a pandemic occurred and we can’t even imagine how that must have been. The Spanish Flu in 1918 infected around 1.8 billion people, roughly 27% of the global population and killing around 100 million. This was during war-time (WW1) and governments globally censored the disease to sustain the war efforts morale leaving many unaware of the risks. However, papers were free to report the epidemic’s effects in neutral Spain, thus giving the name “Spanish” flu. …

China, Singapore & Hong Kong are having millions stay home from the office due to the Coronavirus. The world’s largest work from home policy never seen before could trigger how we do business in the future.
Could you imagine such an experiment? The time it takes to commute to the office there and back, no longer needed. People using task and communication software from the trigger of the keyboard, not dependent on where they are located. For many tech companies, employees only need their computer and an internet connection for work.
It’s probably happened to you before. You are in an office with a group of colleagues, and you need to ask a question to one of them. Instead of getting out of your chair to go across the room to ask in person, you send a quick message via Slack, and your colleague sitting across the room answers. The question then pops in your head, “Why do I need to be in the office 9 to 5 every day?” …
