The number of Covid-19 cases have been fluctuating in the past months. For professionals, this has meant less store hours, less face-to-face interactions, etc. However, these professional Filipinos on YouTube chose to extend their office hours and branches to all kababayans regarding their services.
Thanks to them, we now have added access to free info on health and wellness, financial health, and anything about the law and our justice system. As we Filipinos say, “Share your blessings!” and in this case — your knowledge.
The past months have taught us how to be more resourceful and resilient with our gifts. While some had to completely shift gears to pursue their dreams and make a living, there are those who chose to maximize what they have in order to benefit themselves and other people.
