If this is the first time you’re hearing of a side hustle, let me elaborate – generally speaking, a side hustle is something you do “on the side” that brings in extra money, in addition to your mainstream of income. The income your side hustle brings in is often directly related to the effort you put in. It can involve spending 1 to 2 hours a week completing surveys or using rebate programs, or it can be a full-fledged business that you grow in the evenings and weekends, spending 10 to 15 hours a week. Side hustles can bring in anywhere from a few hundred to a few thousand a month!
Self-care does not mean taking sweet foods and wearing protecting clothes like face masks, but it means setting aside enough time to put the focus, energy, and resources on yourself. This is important mostly for freelancers who do churn out eye-catching work and usually end up against unresponsive clients and low rates.
You probably never dreamed you’d be in search of a job during a global pandemic. Talk about challenges, right? Okay, before you get down and think your chances just slid to the floor, let’s look at what you can do to make the most of your time, and how you can land that next job interview.
One of the first things to consider is how you present yourself to others. Have you evaluated your personal brand lately? What makes you a valuable candidate to prospective employers? How will you stand out in a crowded marketplace? What transferable skills do you have? What are your strengths and how can you amplify them? Consider what courses are available to help you stay competitive in your industry. By evaluating your personal brand, you’ll get an overarching view of how potential employers see you.
Tens of thousands of protesters on Sunday, for the fourth day in a row, continued with demonstrations in Thailand, despite a ban by the local authorities on gathering in Bangkok.

After weeks of protests, there was a wave of arrests of leading activists.
With today’s global world, having an ongoing income, self created inside your home, is now more important than ever. If your kids are staying home or the business where you work is closed, what are some of your options? Most economists are not looking at a fast recovery from the global pandemic as it has been roughly six months and little with COVID-19 has changed.
Many people like to spend their free time relaxing at home or with friends. They do this to unwind from their 40-hour a week job.
However, you should consider sacrificing a portion of your free time to invest in your career, especially during the global COVID-19 outbreak. Many of you are working remotely during the pandemic, giving you the extra free time you can allocate towards learning a new skill.

It also stated that greenfield investments and M&As had already fallen by over 50% year on year in the first quarter of 2020.

When selecting or working with a gig platform or marketplace, whether buying or selling gigs, you need to understand: what is the total cost? You should always try to compare the total cost of a gig platform so you know what you’re dealing with. Often the higher percentage the gig provider takes or charges, the more confusing or complicated they make it in presenting those costs; so if it’s hard to understand the total cost on a platform, that means they are often very high and don’t want to openly disclose the costs.

First you need to understand gig platforms are a different category from freelance jobs. The whole concept, structure and solutions are uniquely different. So today we are only reviewing gig platforms.
The first thing you need to review and measure is the total cost of a gig platform. When you look at the total costs of the leading gig platforms today, it definitely has a price-shocking feel to it. For example the leading platform charges sellers 20%, then often adds on 5% more to the buyers, and then possibly an additional 2-3% for service fees. The total costs come in as high as 27-28%! That leaves only 73 cents of every dollar for the gig provider doing the actual work. That is just gut-wrenchingly high.
