The COVID-19 crisis has forced many businesses to shut down temporarily while others needed to pivot their whole process to continue operations. As everything is available digitally now, there are new opportunities to help these businesses adapt to the new normal. Technology allows us to find means and connect with the public in many ways.
For some, being stuck at home creates a lot of free time to think and hone their skills. This pandemic has made a lot of individuals think outside the box to keep themselves busy and create another source of income. There are several people that have decided to start an online business to either survive, help the cause to fight COVID-19, or to just pursue their passion.
In fact, we have some community members that have started their own online business! Here are some things from our community that you might enjoy:
