WJR Business Beat Transcript

Good morning, Paul.

It’s fascinating to monitor the changing ways Americans are living in the face of this horrible crisis we’ve been dealing with and continue to face with COVID-19. And as reported previously on the Business Beat, we see consumer purchasing patterns changing in abrupt ways, never before seen. Some sectors decimated while others literally booming. And one such category is seeing a huge lift from the changes carved in the bedrock of the way we live our lives and do our work by COVID-19 is the tech sector, specifically tech purchases on items designed to set people up for work from home, or for kids schooling remotely from home.

Since the pandemic, sales for laptop computers, printers, and other similar items have skyrocketed.

For example, through August of this year, keyboard sales are up 66 percent over the same period last year; monitors up 82 percent; printers, 59 percent; laptop computers up 45 percent.

So, why is this relevant if I’m an aspiring entrepreneur? Well, here it is: now that you’ve made these big-ticket purchases to set yourself up to work from home so efficiently, leverage your new work from home infrastructure to establish the world headquarters of your new business, whether part-time or full-time, right from your home.

Start a fun side business to make some extra cash. You don’t have to create a revolution. You can set up a Shopify site or one on eBay or Etsy.

It’s fun, it’s exhilarating, and you can now reach a worldwide audience and conduct every aspect of your business right from home.

Hey, the time is now. If you need help getting started, check us out at StartupNation.com, or feel free to reach out to me directly at [email protected]. I’ll answer every email, I’ll give you my best guidance on how to get started now, and maybe even make a key connection or two for you to help you get started now.

I’m Jeff Sloan, founder and CEO of StartupNation.com, and that’s today’s Business Beat, brought to you today by Dell Technologies, on the Great Voice of the Great Lakes, WJR.
