Business Ideas from Hobbies Inspired/Ignited by The Lockdown

Do you still remember the time when it was announced that the whole country will be on lockdown situation? Clueless about what lockdown clearly means during that time, we still obliged to the government because it was the proper thing to be done.
Days, weeks, and months have passed, and we were surprised how this pandemic changed our lives into the ‘new normal’. There were people who lost their jobs, and there were businesses that need to be closed for a while, indeed, many have lost their sources of income. But there is one fact we always prove the world and ourselves, that, us, Pinoys are undeniably survivors. We can always do something and look for hope despite challenging times like what is happening now.
Considering that part of the new normal is staying more often at home, there were hobbies and talents unlocked that are exceptionally helpful during this lockdown. Aside from there were people going crazy about viral dances on TikTok, there were also business ideas gone viral on the internet that could support financially those who need extra income during the lockdown.
