In the pandemic now, the living situation in the economy is already starting to decline. It started in February 2020 until this era. One of the triggering factors is the outbreak of coronavirus that is sweeping the world.
Our family is expanding!
We need to fill up our bills.
My friend told me,
He started thinking about looking for opportunities for a new business. Then he looks for investors all over the world. He invites his friends from around the World. He asked his business friends to invest in his business. He explained his project well through the webinar/zoom, but his friends said that the current economy started to decline in 2019 because of Covid. This directly affected the life of his business.
Directly, he said that he rarely gets orders now.
A friend whose works or business relations have already started to reduce the ‘discussion’ in business.
Then my friend started to invite his customers and asked his friend to invest in an SME business, he planned business friends through “WhatsApp “but their responses are quite shocking to him. As known as superior businessmen who do not give up easily, always possess initiative in the world as a small business.
“ Sorry, I was already bored with this condition … Usually they helped me and supplied the material, but now it’s hard to get the stock. Even though the price has dropped, the selling power is still weak “
He told me such a story.
Have you also had such an experience?
