A few of us have shared the concerns of losing jobs, recession, declining retirement investments and further bad news. I think the really bad news is that recovery will take a long time. This morning in today’s Straits Times, smacked right on the front page is the heading "Over 90,000 jobs lost" over the last two days in Europe and the US. Some of our fellow members have already lost their jobs; while others saw no bonuses or pay increases. The positive side may be the $20b, budgetted to save jobs and increase public spending.
I am always of the view that some SHCians have good ideas, and can put some of these ideas in place, if there is consolidated effort. If you have an idea or a plan that would help other fellow SHCians financially, please share your thoughts here. I dont mean putting monies in angpows and giving them out. Ideas can include some form of income generation eg small businesses, group buying, organising training sessions, flea markets, online selling, starting F&B outlets, etc.
If you have an idea that is genuinely yours, and are determined to get it started, to earn some good income, I am sure some of us will pool in together to join you. And, if you have some job offers, yeah, that can also be good news, for some of us.
The forum is open, and you are invited to share your thoughts. Please respect the opinion of fellow SHians. And, stay positive in your thoughts, solutions are possible and available.
