The Covid-19 pandemic has surely turned the world upside down. Gone are the days (for now) where you can freely roam the streets unabated.
A new norm is forming – self isolation, wearing a mask, avoiding crowds, staying home. With this scenario facing all of us, how can we survive? Let alone fend for ourselves as millions upon millions have lost their job just this April.
What can one do when his very survival depends on being able to make ends meet? Can we depend on the government until this pandemic is gone?
The situation is dire.
But when the going gets rough, the tough gets going so they say.
So how can one make money without violating protocols set by the government? Here are some suggestions.
Making Money to Survive
Be a Neighborhood Courier
If you own a bike, scooter, roller blades, long-board, or any wheeled vehicle, you can create a Facebook page advertising your services.
Since not everyone can go out, you can volunteer to be that person to do various liaison for your village or area. You can run errands like buy groceries, pay bills, or go after lost pets all for a fee of course and most importantly, wear a mask and disinfect with a carry-on alcohol always.
Participate in a Facebook Market Group in your Area
Participating in a localized market group can be a good source of much wanted funds. So what will you sell? Anything and everything that you think will be of value during these times. Used clothes, kitchenware, tools, toys, shoes etc. The list goes on and on. The key is uploading great clear images of your product plus a truthful product description.
Sell Home Cooked Meals
Who can’t resist home cooked meals especially when they’re served hot? You can send out your menu flyers complete with contact details around your neighborhood at a really affordable price.
You can also sell baked goodies like oatmeal cookies, brownies, apple pie etc,.
There are indeed a lot of ways to make a living amidst this pandemic. But make sure that you are protected at all times when you go out. Observe proper social distancing, wear a face mask at all times and bring your alcohol to wash your hands.
