In 2021, most Americans were focused on when their lives would return to normal after the pandemic.
By the close of 2021, most of us have come to accept that the “old normal” is a thing of the past, like CDs and VCRs.
Some aspects of our lives that we thought immutable have suddenly become irrelevant, such as moving to a city to find work or the daily commute to the office.
We have also discovered that education does not require entering a physical classroom. You can hold down an office job from your sofa. You can even decide to live in an RV and travel the country while retaining your corporate job.
While the transition has been painful, many opportunities have arisen in the wake of the pandemic that could open new doors for you in 2022.
At the start of 2022, we are coming to terms with the fact that Covid-19 is here to stay and the resultant changes to our lives are permanent.
What was once a painful adjustment has now become an opportunity.
The mass resignation of office workers that have refused to return to the regimented life of old-school corporate America has reenforced this reality across industries, economies, countries, and continents.
2022 is the year for you to start thinking about how you are going to make the pandemic-inspired shift in reality work for you.
If you are in a position to continue working from home, you can move to the country and enjoy a lower cost of living while retaining your current income.
If you are in an industry that is less adaptable to a remote working environment, you might want to consider upskilling yourself to take advantage of the changing nature of work.
You might also want to think about whether your current vehicle or home is still a fit for your rapidly changing needs.
If you are the beneficiary of a structured settlement or annuity, you have the option of selling your monthly payments for a lump sum of cash to empower you to take maximum advantage of our rapidly evolving world. Speak to an account manager at Rising Capital to discuss your options.
