Special advice on COVID-19 for businesses;

“My advice for young entrepreneurs such as myself during this pandemic would be to seriously utilize this time of “stay at home” and invest in knowledge. Get that first book you’ve always wanted to buy and read it. Nothing in life is a mistake.

It’s a lesson. Always think of mistakes as lessons because if you weep on the past, you’ll never have time for the present which makes your future uncertain.”

He was too shy to ask for the things he wanted and was too afraid to leave the comforting allure of conformity. It wasn’t until he attended a hypnosis event that he realized that the entire world was in pain.

At the event, he saw successful individuals, who were undoubtedly more confident than he was, break down in tears. At that moment, he allowed himself to feel the world’s pain. The pain was coming from all the individuals who wore masks of happiness while they were being torn apart from the inside. That pain allowed him to make a decision and answer his calling.

Ever since that day, he has healed over 1400 people of whatever painful experiences they’ve had and trained over 900 hypnotists online by revealing the secrets of hypnosis to them; he can teach anybody this art.

Special advice during COVID-19 for businesses:

“As we all push through COVID-19, I would first urge businesses to prioritize the holistic health of their employees. After organizations are able to get a solid hold on their teams’ well-being, I would advise that they cut down on any extra operational fat by zoning in on their top income-driven products or services. This is a great time to not only connect emotionally with consumers but creatively re-introduce or upgrade what your company is known for.

As a bonus, I would recommend that companies convert their offerings to live online (at least 50%) and get up to speed with data science, machine learning, and artificial intelligence. Technology as we know it is not only here to stay, but it will increasingly determine how we engage with clients and run profitable businesses in the years to come.”

Special advice On COVID-19 For businesses;

“I would advise businesses to lean into what their clients are really wanting and needing right now and to be open to pivoting and understanding that there is opportunity everywhere. What worked before may not work right now and this is the time to get creative and take risks. Think of new ways to create your old income (and more).

Remember, your income is a direct reflection of your impact; so ask yourself how you can make a bigger impact. This is also a great time to step into affiliate marketing to create more income and gain more exposure. Lastly, don’t lower your prices, but rather revise and restructure your offers & deliverables.”
