Whether it’s global warming or freak weather, a crisis looms like an armageddon
cloud here in the UK as it seems the whole country is battling with the floods, starting with vast areas of the midlands and north earlier in the month and now south is heavily affected.
Panic buying of water has started as water supplies have been hit with some 150,000 people reported to be without water for up to three days in Gloucestershire.
I realise other countries have had to face these same weather mishaps and our US readers will know all about storms, but here in the UK it’s been worse than the 1947 flooding.
Many businesses have virtually been wiped out.
I’m talking about shops mostly, the small businesses that operate on the high street,
but also office based businesses as well. I read most of these businesses had been told
they would not receive insurance if the floods hit again. Goodbye Livelyhood then..
This made me think how advantageous it is to be running an online business.
There’s no physical shop, very little rental overheads (assuming you’re working from home)
and you can batten down the hatches and get on with it. OK the internet could go down
entirely and then we’d all be screwed.
Anyone considering getting out of the rat race to work for themselves should consider this story.
Online business has the be the easiest option surely? The mistake many people make coming onto the Internet to make money is thinking they can press a button and get ATM style cash from their cd drive or something.
This is about working hard to build a business just like any other, but the payoff is when you’ve moved the rock to the edge of the hill then the rest is pure momentum.
