From the start of the Internet and even more so since the start of the Corona pandemic worldwide, the economy has increasingly become an on-demand economy. What exactly is the on-demand economy?
The on-demand economy is a mainly digital economy in which people want to be able to order, receive and use more and more services and products on demand (just-in-time).
It does not matter whether it concerns the ordering, delivery and use of physical goods or digital services and digital products. It all has to be instant and on-demand.

Part-time and full-time on-demand entrepreneur.
I have been active part-time as a hybrid entrepreneur since 2001 and full-time online & offline full-time since 2011. I soon discovered that timing was crucial if you wanted to be successful online and offline. And that is even more true since the start of the Corona pandemic. Why? If you need to pivot and survive, you need to be able to act fast if you want to make a difference for your customers.
