We’ve had a lot of time to think over the last few weeks, right? It’s been a very unsettling time for everyone, and it feels like we’re stuck in a bit of a funk.

Especially when it comes to money; and what better way to spend the few weeks we have learning a new skill or improving an old one ready to launch a new business later in the year?
