My Quarantine Life Video

Image
On our 50th day of self-quarantine and stay at home order in United States. I'm currently working from home and went outside 3x since March 15 when stay at home order was implemented.

I've created a short video clip on my daily life and stuff that I did during those days. Nothing much to detail, more on eating! Just to remind everyone to continue practice social distancing, wash your hands, sanitize and call your health provider if you're not feeling well (don't go outside).

I went to my doctor appointment on April and there were very strict when I called to schedule my visit. They asked first how are you feeling and some questions related to symptoms of Covid-19. They also asked if someone in the family is sick or if you have been exposed to someone who has been tested positive. When I entered the front entrance of the clinic, there were nurses standing by. I registered my name and they took my temperature. Upon entering the counter to check in, it took me like few mi…

How to Start a Business Without Quitting Your Day Job

Image
If you’re unhappy with your 9-to-5, you may be tempted to leave the workforce and pursue the path of entrepreneurship. No one can deny that being your own boss is an attractive idea! But quitting your day job and launching a business can be risky. What if things don’t work out? Fortunately, you don’t have to give up your full-time gig to start a business of your own—this is typically a bad idea anyway. Start with a side hustle and see where it takes you! Check out these tips for starting a business on a tight schedule and setting yourself up for scaleable growth in the future.


Build Your Side HustleAs you consider side hustle ideas, think of the things you love to do. Passion will give you the motivation you need to plug away at your side business during your time off from work. For example, if you love animals, starting a dog-sitting business can be a great way to make a living while dipping your toe in the business world. You could even board pets in your home as long as you take a f…

The Secret to Self-Care Is to Do Something Just for You

Image
If the idea of self-care seems like little more than a dream, you are not alone. Millions of us struggle to take care of our own needs while spending time and money managing those of others. However,
it is time to stop and, more importantly, to shift the focus to ourselves. You do not have to drain your bank account to engage in a bit of self-care. It starts with doing something just for yourself each day and then building on positive habits.


Time is valuable

Your most valuable asset is time. Make a point of using it wisely. If you have vacation time at work, for example, use it before you lose it. This does not mean that you have to roam around the country
or bask on the beach for weeks. You can put your time to good use by sticking close to home. What’s important is that you break your routine to give your mind time to rest and reset. Chicago is the third-largest city in the US and, as such, has more than enough activities and events to hold your interest while you enjoy a much-need…
