This week, my partner has turned around his business.
As a music teacher faced with lockdown and the prospect of losing all of his lessons, I encouraged him to take it online.
To use Skype, Facetime, Facebook Messenger, Zoom - any platform that his students preferred - to take those lessons online and continue teaching.
To his credit as a teacher and a musician, almost every single one of his students have agreed to online lessons during this trying time and his first lesson (with his youngest student) yesterday was a resounding success.
I've seen so many other examples of creativity and out-of-the-box thinking in the last few days from Joe Wicks' online PE classes (yes, we're doing those too!), live zoo broadcasts, authors reading their books online, new podcasts and so much more.
Which leads me to think that maybe now is the perfect time to throw ourselves into creativity and to try something new or pursue a different direction to try and battle these uncertain times.
So, how about it?
This week I'm going to be thinking of and looking for opportunities to do something new, I'm already throwing around some ideas and I'm looking forward to seeing what comes from it. Will you join me?
To all those struggling - I sincerely hope that there is a workaround or solution for you in this difficult time and if you have questions about how you can utilise digital tools to continue your work online, let me know!
