The entrepreneur, who has been in the US for over 30 years, said he has an online school, and will be seeking teachers to teach courses online from Jamaica.

Additionally, he is looking to hire staff to support his consultancy.

Some areas that the entrepreneur is looking at are: network engineering, coding and programming.

He is seeking to get these professionals utilising online platforms to connect him to local virtual resources.

Mr. Lewis said he is still analyzing the professional landscape here, highlighting that he endorses working from home.

“If people can get paid a decent amount of money without having to get out of their pajamas, I am okay with that as long as the job gets done,” he said.

He said that the Jamaica 55 Diaspora Conference gave him access to a lot of people who were able to answer a lot of his questions.
