In the future 2020 will be seen as the year the world changed forever due to COVID-19. Africa, with its overstretched health systems and overcrowded informal settlements, is more vulnerable than most to infection. But many of the continent’s countries have acted quickly to flatten the curve. Lessons have been already been learnt from dealing with the deadly Ebola virus, and this experience may help us cope with the Coronavirus in the months to come.
As lockdown becomes part of our everyday lives, we must learn to adapt quickly to the ‘new normal’. This means doing everything remotely, from checking in on friends and family to working and furthering our studies.
Luckily there are excellent online learning platforms available, such as the Zhauns Business Academy (free to Zhauns customers). The key to success isn’t only to have the skills to start a business, but also to make it sustainable. That’s why the academy provides the tools to small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to learn how to grow from the start-up phase onwards.
It’s not always easy to be an entrepreneur, so the academy provides all the business training you need with a variety of modules, and it can all be done online. So even if you’re in lockdown, your learning journey doesn’t need to stop. By upskilling yourself, you’ll be increasing the chances of your business succeeding in the future. It’s never too late (or too early) to learn. We salute people like Mr. Karabo Moeketsi for instance, a young innovator who started his own t-shirt and corporate gift printing business while still at school. This allows him to generate his own income without relying on this parents or hand-outs. Become the next young innovator, with the help of Zhauns Business Opportunities.
In these tough and uncertain times, from start-ups to established businesses, we all need to ensure that we’re as prepared as we can be. That way we can create our own future and make sure there’s light at the end of the tunnel.
