Are you prepared with this kind of pandemic? I think NO ONE is. 

Some businesses shut down when the government imposed the lockdowns. Some people lost their jobs. Even ordinary people who simply worked to make ends meet lost their opportunity to earn. 

Working from home as the new normal

As COVID-19 continues to spread worldwide, working from home has become the new norm for the workforce.

Our current situation pushes us to do things to help us survive. Some people started small businesses through online selling. Popular items include ready to eat meals, baked goods, and other stuff that people usually use like household items.

Most people nowadays find ways to look for jobs on the internet. 

Freelancing is a practical choice

One thing that is very much in demand is freelancing. Some people are very successful in this field. They are able to earn big without leaving their home.

As a freelancer, you are not tied to a work location or a fixed schedule. You can work from anywhere. You can work whenever you want to. You can work with one or multiple clients. You can maximize your earning potential by learning to manage your time well.

Freelancing is a practical choice for those looking for work during this time of the pandemic. Many businesses around the world prefer to look for remote workers, as this is much cheaper than hiring a permanent on-site worker that would require them to work physically in an office. 

In demand freelancers

The number of freelance workers continues to increase every day. As people find this as the new normal. Some in-demand freelance workers are Virtual Assistants, Social Media Managers, Web Developers, Video and Graphic Designers, ESL Teachers, and many more. Their jobs are done purely online. You only need the knowledge and skills to do the job.

If you are an enthusiastic and determined person, no pandemic will stop you from working even at home. 

Many sites and groups in social media offer free training on how to become an online freelancer. Just be resourceful in your research, and you can find an online group where you can learn and be trained.

Don’t let this pandemic make you lose hope of living a decent life. Find ways to learn and earn.
