The Mindset of an Entrepreneur
Better Opportunities in 2022
Year 2022 should be a time for better economic opportunities. Covid-19, hopefully, will dissipate and be reduced to a common cold in the face of increasing vaccination coverage. That will give the economy more room to expand and generate more job opportunities.
This has been a year of rebounds. We have survived periodic surges of the coronavirus and the ineffectual hard lockdowns that followed increases in daily infection rates. We have survived the loss of jobs and the economic downturn. Not only did we survive these challenges but we are also poised to recover. I am hoping this will continue in 2022.
Hope Springs Eternal Despite Natural Disasters
We should be modestly celebrating the New Year because of the successes we achieved both on the health and economic fronts. We have tamed Covid-19 through an aggressive vaccination rollout program, leading to declining daily cases. We reopened the economy and restored thousands of jobs through less mobility restrictions.
