My Top 40 To-Do's For The Quarantined & Shut-in

The Spring of 2020 was a time like no other. The entire world came to a stand still, implementing self-isolation, shut-ins, and curfews to flatten the curve of the spread of Covid-19 (the Corona virus). While many people volunteered to stay at home, others had no choice as their children were prohibited from attending schools that had been closed down or their places of employment laid off some and encouraged others to work from home.
With so many people "stuck at home", I decided to create this video as a reminder of the many things that can be done around the home, especially that are helpful for the small business owner and up and coming entrepreneur.


Awesome lessons on business and entrepreneurship, economics, partnerships and cooperation within the community for sustainability, growth, and unity.

40ED YouTube Playlist A playlist of short videos covering the 7 days of Kwanzaa

In my 41 years of living I had never before celebrated Kwanzaa, although I had always been intrigued by it.

I don't have a Kinara, a placemat, colored candles, a flag, or any of the fruits and vegetables to properly celebrate this holiday. But I didn't let that stop me.

I learned a little about Kwanzaa each day and made a series of short videos about the Kwanzaa principles and challenged myself to incorporate them in my life. You can view the playlist HERE.

In addition to my Kwanzaa playlist, I uploaded several images to my Instagram account to represent each day of Kwanzaa.

One set of images in particular were very unique and beautiful. They come from a website called

The principles of Kwanzaa are each represented by a unique "cartoon" character with their own look and personality. These characters are called Kinara's Children.

I encourage you to visit the website and artwork created here, and to learn more about Kwanzaa so that you can add value to you and your family's life by trying some of the lessons in this African holiday tradition.
