Posting this under main internet marketing for maximum visibility. So again, how is everyone doing these past several days under quarantine? How do you cope with practically staying indoors?

    It has its ups and downs. My main job is literally cancelled, a month ago I reactivated my previous career which made me realise how much things changed in the past few years and now I am basically at the beginning. Some days are inspirational, some days I want to kick out this laptop out the window but I guess that is life. Staying healthy is now no1 priority. Hope you're all doing ok

      I'm sorry to hear your main job got cancelled.

      Yeah staying healthy (and washing hands) is utmost priority right now.

    The motivations and mental health of nobody is okay I guess, but all I have been doing is working from home, sleeping and watching series.

    I think I love it. I dashed out thinking over past accomplishments. That was enough to give more fuel to the fire.The fresh air is just what the doctor ordered. Oxygenation is critical.

    Keeping the endorphins high.

    I don't stay indoors. My nearest neighbor is over a mile away. We go out regularly, to the store, pick up things for the garden,

    The worst thing people can do is stay indoors. We need fresh air and sunshine, for vitamin D and to keep our immune system healthy.

      Some people take "staying indoors" way literally. I personally think we can still go outside, provided we exercise social distancing measures.

      Another thing that's being taken for granted - proper diet.

    I haven't changed a single thing.

    I have avoided other humans like the plague for many years. They mostly just annoy the hell out of me and lately have become much more annoying.

    I go to town to buy supplies just like always. I roam around my property just like always. I enjoy the State and National forests just like always. I'm planning my garden and Summer activities just like I do every Spring.

    I don't feel any fear or anxiety.

    Life is good!

    And now in a city near me there are some Speakeasies opening up. It is one hell of a party if you can find one and get in

    The quarantine isn't so bad. The biggest drawback for me is that Planet Fitness is closed. Other than that i've been cooking alot more, spending more time with my boo, calling family members, and watching more CNN than i've done the whole past year.

      Thank you Enzo for asking. I really like your style. You continually share pertinent information to help us as Internet Marketing Entrepreneurs and you still remember we are all still just people trying to survive...and these days that is literally and figuratively.

      @Randall,

      Oh you so right I finally achieved a V Taper for the first time in my life and now back to my before picture!

      Well it does motivate me all over again tho.


      Also my Birthday 2020 is not quite what I had imagined . Face Palm.

    Prepare an emergency backpacks, exercise, drink water and be ready to go if you haven't already left. It doesn't matter if the coronavirus dies out, if the u.s. is suppose to be great, why does every single store overcharge for organic foods (healthy) yet all the non-organic foods (unhealthy) are significantly less?

    No fear mongering, just think about it? And who am I to speak like this?
    Well, I have made lots of money, lost lots of money, traveled, been in the u.s. army and the insight that was provided before, during and after the military, I speak honestly.

    On the positive side of things, a billion more people will get online which opens the doors for all us to offer worthwhile products!!!

    The internet usage online activity just grew in less than 30 days..wild wild west all over again!

    Positive side of things, get out!

      It's called supply and demand.

  • We've been living this way since I quit my job and started an internet marketing business in 2016. Work from home AND home school - so literally no change for us. Started stocking up and prepping (not hoarding) back in January when I started following the spread of coronavirus, so we've got plenty of food and emergency stuff - just sending a promo email or two per day to keep the money flowing, spending a lot of time outdoors, grilling, playing with the fam, honestly not much change. But it is a bummer we can't hang with the neighbors, and shopping offline is now by necessity only and we wear gloves and masks when we do go to the store (sounds like overkill, but my son has bad lung issues so we have to be extra careful just in case).

    it did not really change a lot in my life, the best thing to do is just ignore the news and then everything seems to be normal therefore everything is okay as long as we don't deal with whats going on outside too much

    I've been brushing up on my home cooking. At best, I am an amateur at home cooking and more of an wild game cook.

    Although my wife is a gourmet. I don't want to be a gourmet. She just doesn't like me in her kitchen because I am limited to outdoor cooking. lol

  • South Africa has finally been hit with the lockdown period. Everyone here are posting...

    "Where's that person that sent me a link on how to make $14,357 from home per month?"
    We wish we took him seriously.

    Yes now would be the time to learn how to make money online. For some it may be too late to learn. Others have mastered making money online years ago and are not affected by this work from home situation, that's been forced on society, on global scale now.

    Now we'll probably experience an online boom like never before. Now is also probably the best time to market 'make money online' or 'work from home' solutions, to the panic stricken masses, who are looking for alternative ways to supplement their income, working from home.

    There's a huge opportunity for online entrepreneurs, as brick and mortar business owners are looking for ways to move their businesses online.

    Now is the perfect time to position yourself as an expert and market to those business owners to get them making money online too.

    Spending time cleaning and organizing around the house throwing away garbage and finding things to sell on Ebay and Amazon. Time to catch up on all your reading backlog and TV shows and movies. Focus on building out and finishing any of your business projects and more importantly advertise and network everyone is at home and online.

    As a professional life coach I work with people all over the world using Zoom anyway from my home studio/office, so not much has changed there. I have picked up some new clients and that's always great. I love meeting new people, learning a bit about their story, and helping to them to identify patterns and figure out what might be holding them back so they can make real changes. Getting to do that during the middle of a pandemic is pretty fantastic.

    My wife had to shut her business down due to the stay home order. She'll hit the ground running though when things get back to some semblance of normal.

    So my work days haven't changed much other than having my wife home. She's going a bit stir crazy so I take time between calls and we play games or sit on the porch when the weather is decent or go for walks around the neighborhood. We've made a concerted effort to work out more so that she can stay in shape for her usual work but also because she's a circus aerialist she wants to keep fit. I am determined to emerge from this quarantine even healthier than I went in and feeling even better.

    I am also working on building out coaching modules, working on my podcast and releasing new episodes, expanding that into more video interviews, etc. I miss hanging out with my friends and getting out and being active but I'm determined not to come out the other side of this with something that I didn't have going in, including lessons that I can take away from my experience and that of others in going through something like this. We all have to do this, we might as well learn something about ourselves through it that we can take into life after.

    Been working from home the last 15+ years. Used to be me and my wife Monday - Friday, now it's me, my wife and our two kids. Life is busier, but I don't mind. As long as I can get out of the house once or twice a day. :-) Business-wise, I've seen a spike in traffic. Last month was good, April is starting pretty strong as well. It'll be interesting to see if the trend continues over the next few months. Something tells me life will never get back to normal (the way things used to be). By nature I am a moderate pessimist. Right now I see the glass half empty when it comes to the future of the US (and the world's) economy. I hope I am wrong.

    All work and now only on the remote.
    Sometimes it is difficult to motivate yourself on a productive and quality day. Hopefully things will get better soon.

    Online marketers were already self qua-ranting before . In fact it has helped me to increase the hours I spent marketing products and has greatly reduced my expenses.

    COVID-19 has created such a situation where everyone is afraid of getting infected by this lethal weapon. In this situation I am creating awareness about preventive measures. I am educating the public about the current situation and providing the necessary and trusted precautions and remedies using social media platforms.
