I know so many entrepreneurs in Colombia (the country where I am living now), where everyone is learning and discovering new ways of selling their products. Others have decided to start their own cooking business and delivering food for others. Then there are others who are more creative, designing post cards to sell for those who are looking for thoughtful ways to reach out and check in with loved ones.
Colombian artists are also giving free stay at home concerts on YouTube. There was an event on YouTube called Colombia Cuida a Colombia, more than 15 Colombian artists including Shakira, Carlos Vives, Sebastian Yatra, Puerto Candelaria, Fonseca, Andres Cepeda, Jessie Uribe got together and sang some of their best songs to fundraise money for some of the most vulnerable communities in Colombia.
I also have friends who are determined to start learning Spanish, Portuguese, German and French during quarantine to eventually accomplish their dream of moving abroad with their loved one, visiting a new country and even working in a new country.
