About the bare foot affiliate, aka Michael Dubhthaigh

Welcome. At the moment this Covid thing is confusing and frustrating the hell out of many of us, maybe all of us!. But hey, what can we do?

Well, try to keep positive is one thing, but probably easier said than done for many.

For me? Well I am not planning on going back to doing what I was doing pre Covid. 12 hr days. 10 on 4 off, sometimes travelling on 2 of those days off.

Sure it paid well, but the down times could be very down.

Times are changing, Like many people, I don’t know what the world will be like at the end of all this, and it is hard to be optimistic when there is so much uncertainty around.

Many people are smiling (with worried looks ), because governments are handing out money.

Small business’s in Australia is looking at the fine print before applying for any handouts.

A massive regulatory system regarding employees entitlements, Leasing agreements, insurances, union agreements, government regulations, would probably have many small business owners just throw their arms up in the air, shut the doors and go down an register for unemployment.

Many have mortgaged the house to start a business, so, they are moving between a rock and a hard place.

Also, Yelp, that American company publishing crowd sourced business reviews, says, more than 60% of business’s that have closed due to the “pandemic” will never return.

There are alternatives though

There is great potential to earn an online income, and the most efficient way to do this is by having a blog. 

Yeah I know, you have heard it all before!

But it is True.

Whats the saying ? Hindsight is 20 / 20 vision.

I wrote this over 12 months ago also.

Last year I wrote this post on my blog and it is looking very real at this time.

Most days I have lunch with a remote worker who has had pay day’s all the way through this isolation / lockdown.

For him life goes on as normal. His income still moves in circles, it pays for small renovations or new furniture. Sadly for so many those options have disappeared.

The best time to plant a tree was 25 years ago. The next best time is now.

If you want things to improve in your life, less monetary stress, more choice of lifestyle and better work / family balance, then why not see what Wealthy Affiliate can do for you?

I will leave you with another saying….
