You might have faced difficulties addressing the recipient or writing the subject/content. Don’t worry! We all face difficulties while writing such emails. No matter how vaguely you send informal emails, you should be very specific while writing the professional ones.

All of us dream of a similar lifestyle but not all of us are ready to take the pain. None of us are ready to give up on our comfort. The habits that we take up today will decide who we are in about 5 years or maybe less.

Are you a freelancer or a business owner? If you are, you would be well aware of the struggles and hardships one has to face to make their presence felt on Google. Further, not having a personal website or business website would make it even more difficult to show up in the search results.

More than five research teams have proceeded to advanced stages. They have entered the phase of human trials. There are claims that a vaccine might be ready by the end of the year. Even if a vaccine is discovered, providing it to everyone won’t be easy. It will surely take time.

Ever since the outbreak of the virus, the term “Herd Immunity” has spread…
