It’s interesting to acknowledge that a year has already passed since our lives changed dramatically due to the COVID-19 pandemic. From lock downs, to embracing the virtual life, working remotely, home schooling, limited social engagements, facemasks becoming permanent fixtures on our shopping lists, and WIFI attaining chieftaincy status.
On the bright side, we have become more health conscious, increased introspection, developed closer relationships with our families, and of course skimped on our clothing budget (nowhere to go anyway).
Unfortunately, there were also negative economic consequences for many businesses who could not function adequately, and thus affected everyone connected to them. The country also went through a brief recession and is still struggling to recover. Our experience over the last year has shown that if we had practiced all the financial intelligence tactics we had learned, we may have had an easier time dealing with constrained or shaky earning abilities.
