Making Money From Home in a Pandemic

With many people losing their jobs and being furloughed over the past 12 months as a result of the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, there is a higher demand for physically based jobs around the globe. With an even harder market to breach, attaining an occupation at a physically based establishment is becoming increasingly harder.

However, many people are turning to digital industries and markets in order to sell their niched content through websites optimised for this, or payment companies such as PayPal, which is providing many people who have lost their primary source of income to establish themselves as entrepreneurs and freelancers.

If you are wary about taking the leap of faith and becoming an entrepreneur, let these benefits intrigue you.

When stepping into the online freelance market, you have the flexibility of working from home and deciding your working hours - providing both you and your family with an additional layer of convenience you may not have previously had the luxury of possessing.
