There’s no doubt that the coronavirus pandemic is changing the way people do things. From meetings to workouts, grocery shopping to even socializing (which is almost remote now), things have indeed changed.
And as more cases continue to climb all over the world, a huge number of speaking engagements had to either be relocated, postponed, or even outright canceled. Aside from major conferences, individual revenues of personal coaches have also been affected.
