Despite the global fears over the coronavirus, the World Health Organization asserts that stress is one of the biggest health epidemics of the 21st century. According to one study conducted by the WHO, 80% of American workers report feeling stressed out while working, and 42% of those surveyed stated that their co-workers would benefit from an improved work-life balance. Although stress can be an excellent motivator once in a while, chronic stress can lead to employee burnout, lower productivity, and a less positive work environment.
With the coronavirus pandemic rapidly spreading across the globe, employers are strongly advised to have their employers work from home instead of coming into the office. Practicing social distancing, as recommended by the CDC, will help prevent the spread of the highly contagious COVID-19 virus from person-to-person contact.
Speaking broadly, an entrepreneur is someone who identifies a need in the market and attempts to fill it. Naturally, this isn’t always the case as the world doesn’t really need another burger joint, but guess what? A new one just opened up somewhere in this fine country of ours as I wrote this. Regardless of whether a need has truly been identified, or you are simply improving on a product that already exists, starting your own business will be difficult with no guarantee of success -- regardless of how well you may plan ahead.
