Silver Linings & the Global Pandemic, 2020

It was very frustrating when COVID-19 initially hit. Unsure how the pandemic would affect my life and the lives of those around me, it was important that I resembled some sense of normalcy to maintain. The nearly immediate lockdown allowed me the flexibility and more time to work on my personal & professional brands contributing to the growth of my Instagram page reaching 10,000 followers. This growth also led to brand partnerships and other collaborations bringing new opportunities.  


During this time, I was also able to apply for and earn LLC status for my business. Officially registered in Atlanta, GA, my company is now recognized as 5starpullup, LLC. These accomplishments have allowed me to realize greater possibilities. 

My blog was also started during this time with a mission to expose my brand and to share relevant stories with new & existing audiences. Realizing I must continue to grow & improve my brand and platform contents, I was also inspired to enroll in a photography course in which I acquired my first digital camera, the Nikon 5600.



Unknowingly, I later recognized these opportunities as silver linings where I plan to further my mission, brand, and growth as a businessman. While the pandemic has certainly thrown a wrench in things, I remain positive and am making the best out of it. On whatever side of the globe you’re on, I hope that you are too. 

Stay Well.

Interesting testimonials, keep them coming... Here is a quote from a friend of mine " It is the time. There are people secretelly building empires from home. Learing new skills, side hustles, creating digital products. So many things. Look at how people with physical stores and companies are stuggling. Things are moving online now, digital. The internet doesn't close at 10 PM and covid-19 cant't touch it".

Before Covid -19 hit, I was a wife, fulltime music teacher living in South Carolina, with a part time online business, stressed out from dealing with children at work and at home. After Covid-19, I am a single mom, retired teacher, fulltime entrepreneur, podcast guest, Amazon bestselling author, and future 90 day fiancee, living in Miami!! 😂 Yes, you read that right. The pandemic catapulted my life in ways I never would have imagined, but I know that this year will end greater than it began. I believe that any business owner who exited their comfort zone during this pandemic will walk into endless opportunities for my family, community, customers, and future business partners. The best is yet to come.

Thats awesome! I can certainly relate the the silver lining feeling after the pandemic hit. I was working as a software tester and on track to write the exam to become an industrial drone pilot...then the pandemic derailed everything. The time alone allowed me to reflect on my life missions of building a lifestyles brand and also establishing myself as a clean energy service provider. The journey has begun and I am eagerly awaiting what comes next. Success is imminent.
