If you’re like any other Filipino, the constant change from ECQ to MECQ to GCQ and now back to MECQ must have you on edge. Do I still have a job? Do I still have work? How’s my company? Will I be retrenched, laid off, or fired?
For some Filipinos who have had this happen, the one solution that they seem to have come up with is putting up their own business. For some, it’s all about baking and cooking. For others, it’s buy and sell. Whatever choice you make, what is obvious is that online is the best way to go to survive the never-ending quarantine.
Here are some tips to help your online business succeed.
1. Marry your passion with skill.
It’s not enough that you feel passionate about something, it also matters that you learn the skills needed to market and sell your passion.
Passion is the most important thing because this is what will help you when the going gets tough and you’re facing one challenge after another. Passion will keep you going when its gets too tough to keep going.
Skills, on the other hand, will be the tools that you can use to slowly fix one problem after the other.
2. Fail to Plan and you Plan to Fail.
When doing business, it’s no longer about you relying on a company. You don’t get to just time in and time out. Now, you are the boss, the employee, the accounting, HR, and even the janitorial services. This means that you need to plan how things will be including your daily schedule, pick up, and attending to customer feedback.
When you fail to plan things, the outcome could be one disaster after another.
