Help for the Computer Terrified

Working At Home Guide April 2020

So you’re stuck at home unable to work and worrying about paying the mortgage and food bills?

We could be here for 3 months !

If you are employed,  when its safe to go back to work – will there be any customers ?  Will your employers business survive?  Will you get laid off work?

If like me you are self employed , leads now dried up, wife’s income also dependent on your business and the government help is 3 months down the line. 

I don’t think there is much doubt, there is a recession coming.

In such times its nice to have a plan B

Basically I advise that you do one of these (or both)

  1. Make yourself  more valuable to your employer – learn a new skill
  2. Start a side hustle – a part time money making venture

 

Learn a New Skill

There are some excellent and not expensive on-line courses to be found, with good solid tuition and many examples and workbooks available . Learn a computer skill – a bookkeeping skill, a programming language, Web Design, Image and Video Editing.

Sites like Upwork , Fiverr, Freelancer and many others need people with all levels of skills to fulfil work from the ever increasing Website building communities. 

Here’s one to consider….  many Ad agencies have offers to promote – which is fairly easy work – but looking around these offers, they pay WAY more to promote in other languages, for example Spanish, click below to find out

Run a Side Hustle

An alternative source of income, not dependent on your daytime job. Something that continues 24/7 if possible and independent of location – so any future problem in one country cannot affect your diversified income. 

Does such a thing exist – Yes

You CAN make money online, the audience is absolutely everyone online, in the WORLD – so you are never going to run out of customers and what you sell is up to you. It can either be cheap but useful, or very detailed large and expensive, as long as there is a demand. Click below to take a look
