It seems like many of us have a lot of extra time on our hands because of what’s happening around the world right now. And you may be going a little bit crazy because of it. Well, today, I’m giving you three tips for what you can do now that you have that extra time.

Hey, there! It’s Billy once again with KeePon Cashflow. I’m here to share with you a number of different strategies and tips for how you can make more money, have control over your free time, and ultimately live with less stress.

With everything going on around the world, whether you’re in Asia, Africa, Europe, or the Americas, you’ve probably got a little bit of extra time on your hands because of COVID-19. Not too long ago, I was fortunate enough to share a message and a story with you on my LinkedIn page. It’s about making as much lemonade out of lemons as possible.

And that’s where we are right now. Because of that, you’re going to have some extra downtime. You’ll be able to work from home. Maybe you’ll be able to do something you normally can’t because you’re too busy professionally. Because of that, I wanted to not just share that LinkedIn post as a reference, but I also wanted to give you something actionable to do. If you’re anything like me, you’re probably going to be home for the next 15 days or so. But the great part is that after these 15 days, you’ll still have your concrete goals that you can use to continue to build your knowledge base, get closer with your family, and more.

The number one thing you need to figure out first is what you can do. For example, this is a great opportunity to get more quality family time. Whether you have little kids like we do or bigger kids, you’re able to spend more time with them. You can do this whether they live near you or not, since you can either spend physical time with them or you can use FaceTime, Zoom, Skype, or any of the platforms that allow you to talk face-to-face, so to speak.

There are a lot of things you can do with your family during this time, like drawing or helping your kids with their homework. You can also spend time building up your financial acumen. I know one of the things we will definitely be doing is playing Cashflow 101. If you have it, you can either play it online or break it out of your closet. If you don’t know how to play, I’ll be sure to link to one of our past videos about the game because this is a great way to spend two or three hours with your family and work together to build some financial acumen.

The second thing I would suggest doing during this time is building a new skill. A lot of you that come to this blog want to understand more about real estate, more about building your own business, and more about sales. One of the things you guys ask for a lot, aside from being able to analyze properties, is understanding the due diligence process, how to make sure you’re mitigating as much risk as possible, and how to bring new assets into your portfolio. You can do this as an active investor or a passive investor, and we’ve talked about that in the past as well. So, this is a perfect opportunity to look up those videos and blog posts and learn something new.

Lastly, and this is something that’s close to my heart because I’m doing it more and more every day, it’s important to spend time reading new books. Make sure you’re filling your mind with as much knowledge as possible. It gives you different points of view on specific topics so you can make the best decisions for yourself and your investors. I’ve been trying to do this more often, and right now, I’m enthralled in the book Principles by Ray Dalio. I even took it on a trip to Maui, and that was a lot of fun.

So, just to recap: Think about quality family time and playing Cashflow 101. Think about learning and practicing a new skill. Think about reading some new books.

If you’re going to be home, it’s important to make some lemonade out of those lemons. As most of you know, I am not only building my own business but also happily working for a big corporation. I’ve been able to do both very well over the last five or six years, and as a result, I’ve built a plan that tells people, especially those looking into real estate, how you can do something similar — or even better because you’ll learn from what I’ve done.

If you want to know more about how to do both of those things, just click HERE. You can pick up your free eBook, which will help you become closer to our community. And if you want to do a deep dive, since you have some time on your hands, you can study some of our training materials.
