Just because you are around the house more frequently now there’s no reason to drift off from your nutrition. I don’t know about you but I have worked extremely hard over the last year specifically to be able to get to where I am today.
Guilty pleasures always are calling my name like the cupcakes that we made recently with my family. However, consuming those in limited capacity is obviously the key ingredient hear that well help me stay on course.
Same goes for you.

03. Personal Brand
I am an entrepreneur who has a marketing business. My personal brand is extremely important to me because people buy from those who like, trust, and value.
During the coronavirus and quarantine time you can be doubling down on your personal brand by creating more content.
My personal brand includes being very unconventional, direct, and unfiltered. A lot of the things that I talk about include personal development, family, technology, and of course marketing. Therefore a vast majority of content that I create pertains to those specific areas in effort to educate and entertain others out there.
Use this time to strengthen your personal brand by creating more content that pertains to your target audience. Such initiatives and actions are going to contribute to the longevity of your personal brand by helping you create more opportunities for yourself.
For many people the coronavirus quarantine has created some sense of confinement. This is actually a good thing especially if you are a fellow father, husband, or simply have a significant other in your life.
Family plays an extremely important role not only in your personal life but also in business. Use this time to spend more quality interactions with the people that matter to your most.
For instance, yesterday I spent time putting together a puzzle with my son. I also spent time playing with my daughter and given her undivided attention. Today I also spent some time with my wife by having a quality conversation about the current chain of events.
You can never have too many skills! In fact, the more skills you have, the higher your value goes up in the way that you can help others.
Having said that you can focus on learning new skills. Perhaps taking a course on a new skill that can help increase your toolbox.
Using the power of the Internet you can tap into all sorts of resources and tools that can help you learn a new skill.
Your network is your net worth. You are the sum of the five people that you associate yourself with.
Who is in your network? Who isn’t?
During the coronavirus quarantine time you can be focusing on strengthening the power of your community.
- Weed through your Facebook friends list.
- Review your LinkedIn connection.
- Check your Twitter followers.
- Engage with your Instagram audience.
These are just some very basic things that you can do to further streamline your community. I don’t know about you but for me I simply do not have room for any negative and degrading people. I am on a mission to build the greatest life possible and I want to surround myself with people who have similar or identical dreams and goals.
While I am not a huge fan of movies or binge watching, I think it’s important to have some leisure time.
All work and no play makes a dull person.
I love what I do. Digital marketing is a passion of mine because I strive for helping entrepreneurs and business is thrive. I’m really good at it. I have also been doing it for the last 25 years.
However I also recognize the importance of stepping away from my phone or computer and watching a good movie. One that has a very powerful story where hopefully I can learn a thing or two.
The reason why people watch movies is because of the storytelling element. Perhaps this is a good time to watch a new movie on Netflix or any other streaming digital media outlet of your choice.
Personally, I recently finished Designated Survivor on Netflix. I happened to enjoy the storyline because it resembled House of Cards which I happened to like quite a bit.
About a month ago I started journaling on daily basis. This was something that a coach of mine enticed me to do as an effort to document more and reflect upon my thoughts.
I have noticed a drastic difference in my behavior and thinking ever since I have started journaling. I know that he can have the same effect on you.
Journaling during this quarantine time can I help you document and later reflect on all of the occurrences and experiences you have undergone. in doing so you can further fine-tune your personal life and business by steering it to new horizons.
Creating new challenges for yourself should be something that’s part of your personal life and business. In doing so he can help you level up not to mention learn new things.
For instance, I just wrapped up my 30 day challenge where I was on pursuit of eating even better and losing more weight. The experience behind it has been nothing short but fascinating. I have learned so many things about myself that I simply did not know in the past.
One of the biggest takeaways from this challenge was that I am capable of doing so much more. Focus, clarity, commitment are the three main things that will help you become the best version of yourself. Whatever that may be.
Next stop, I am excited about spring weather and the ability to get back on my road bike. Last year I rode my first 50 mile single outing. This comes from having cycled for five years now.
In 2020 I am looking to do my first 100 mile stretch as an effort to continuously level up my endurance.
Create new challenges for yourself constantly. They can help you discover untapped areas of potential and personal growth.
10. Personal Development
One of the best things that you can do for yourself is to invest in your own personal growth. There are a lot of different ways that you can do this. Investing in yourself will help improve every single aspect of your personal life and your business.
The above mentioned are only a few examples of personal development. If there is something that I wish I knew at a younger age would’ve been the importance of personal development. Being able to become more cognizant of the things I mentioned above will help you dominate every aspect of life and business.
The Coronavirus quarantine is a difficult time for many yet presents many untapped opportunities.
