Demand to know
The 10 items listed below are in a Medium article covering a career issue we posted on at BlackSoftware.com. Treat this list as a refresher course. Things have changed. This advice is circulating around the new COVID-19 depressed economy.
We’re living with the Internet of Things where 5G has gotten a bad rap. No US cellphone is using it in April 2020 but they will be on this 24-90 GHZ frequency soon. Verizon installs 5G for private business networks today. I know because I interviewed with the installation crew in December 2018. They were hiring to swap out routers in Massachusetts and replace them with faster ones for the coming of 5G. I did not do the gig. In December 2010, I was on the Verizon team that constructed and turned on the first 4G LTE data network for consumers in the United States. I don’t know the health deal about 5G. Is it harmful to us? Scientific studies say no it isn’t. Time will tell.
It is impressive to see Black millennials who work full time make money on the side when pursuing creative instincts. They have digital businesses selling events, baby dolls, face masks, clothing, advocacy and a whole lot of things.
Their product webpages run on Shopify, Square, WIX and WordPress code. Their PINTEREST panels speak their personality. These websites and Instagramers sell 24/7 while working their corporate 9-5s. Pop-Up event selling is a must-do. They use the channel to clear out inventory for side-income when online sales stall. Keep it going people, you’ll make it.
