Are you a person who has suddenly lost all earnings completely or they have been substantially reduced and/or you are facing the prospects of dipping into your savings​because of loss of your job or a pay-cut or because your self-employed profession got affected adversely or your small business is unable to generate enough revenues to meet your bare-minimum basic operational-expenses.

Then on a war-footing, we need to find simple, practical, scalable solutions that can make us earn enough through alternative channels.

All these ideas and solutions have to be based on your existing Skills, Expertise, Knowledge, Niche-Competencies, Strengths, Qualities etc. plus those skills that you can now acquire.

=>  Towards this vision I am attempting to start a  Self-sustaining, Self-help Global-community

The situation we may face in the Corona-Covid19 world [as we know it is not going away any time soon]:

  • 1. You could be among the millions of workforces in the organized sector in India – for whom this is the beginning of a long-horrible-24X7nightmare. 
  • 2. For a vast section of working people – prospects of salary cut or job loss are staring them right in their immediate-future – especially for people working in small to medium establishments in India.
  • 3. Remaining unemployed for a long-long time is a future - which is looming-large for hundreds of thousands of people in few sectors, who have already lost their jobs or about to get the notice.
  • 4. With many of the sectors becoming unopenable – the people employed directly as well as those who depend on these sectors will lose their livelihood.
  • 5. Slipping into poverty is very-very easy- with this type of economic crash [as scores of them have already fallen in the hopeless-gloomy well of deprivation and scarcity].
  • 6. While almost all of us will face loss of income BUT we shall also be faced with spiraling costs and expenses
  • 7. Now onwards a large majority of the working-class people will have to focus all their energies, time, efforts only on subsistence and survival.
  • 8. That is why we need to persist in discovering, identifying, polishing, mastering and marketing these talents and competencies – till we have tested and started encashing them into meaningful financial barter or money.
  • 9. With the stimulus-packages that the government has announced – nothing will alter for the working-class – except that they will save less and their future would be more uncertain.

From Jan. 2020 onwards I was beginning to get uncomfortable with the rapidly deteriorating economic-crisis of the worst kind.Then I got hit myself and lost my life's entire investments through Franklin-Templeton's debit mutual funds – which they closed down.

Yes, I admit it is my fault entirely for foolishly trusting and entrusting my total investment to an unscrupulous man.But losing almost everything at this age of 58 - when if you are not actively employed – you are considered UNEMPLOYABLE.

Seeing the way the economy is managed in India – I don't expect the job market or the economy will revive in the next 3-5 years.

People who are self-employed professionals [ excepting few professions like in the medical field] – would find their client base and size of business evaporating drastically AND may become hard-up for survival.

24 Tips on how to beat this unprecedented crisis to not only survive but to even grow- in wake of loss of job, earnings and business failures

  1. First, identify, discover, look-for – a talent, a strength, a quality, an expertise – that is uniquely yours => Most people tend to dismiss what they're good at.
