COVID-19 THE ACRONYM OF DOOM


Due to COVID-19
I’m having to close my business.
The YOMP NOTES
RESISTANCE HAS BEGUN!

Some of you may already know that my day job was to run a graphic design company; ( DESHOK.COM ) that provided a specialist service to the aerospace, defence and security sectors. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic my major clients have had to close their businesses, this has effectively shut my business down for the duration as well.

WHATS THE PLAN?
As I write this there is no help being offered by the government for freelancers and the self employed who have lost their income due to the pandemic so it’s down to me and that’s fine. The situation has left me with time that I intend to use to re-configuring YOMP NOTES from a hobby into a business that may one day earn a living! Maybe this is good timing, maybe a deeply informative and inspiring blog about our niche and passion is essential  right now : )

I’m thinking, that at a time when we’ve watched more Netflix than we can stand, we might find our selves looking forward to when COVID-19 is done and the next big outdoor adventure. I’m thinking that if we can’t go out and hike, if we don’t need to commute and everyday carry then prepping for it is the next best thing.

YOMP NOTES GOING FORWARD
What will change? not much really, there wont be any more advertising than you see now there won’t be any paid gateways or subscriptions, I may sharpen up my offer to brands with regard to collaborations etc, (I will talk more about that soon). I’m going to open a new DEPT; “HOTIPS” short pithy posts for tips I’ve discovered and developed that might be useful for your own configs. I’d like to look at reviewing and testing more clothing, boots and other brands, there’s a lot of gear out there, I haven’t even scratched the surface. I’ll be designing more T-shirts and gear, maybe some more patches, stickers and merch, I might be a bit more pushy about promoting it all. That’s about it.

WHAT CAN YOU DO?
Nothing, if you don’t want to, YOMP NOTES will still be here for you but if you enjoy the blog, you find it useful and inspiring... buy a T-shirt, Buy a patch, Buy a coffee, this will all help to support the mission, to take standard gear, review, reconfigure and optimise for our next big adventure when COVID-19 is all done.

This post is titled - COVID-19 THE ACRONYM OF DOOM.
Is COVID-19 really our doom? It has been for my business and will effect some far more than others and that is a terrible tragedy but I have to believe that it’ll pass and in the meantime I’m going to try and stay positive and healthy., listen to government advice, follow instructions, do my duty for friends, family and country.

I do not intend to give-in to COVID-19
