If you’re not employed or simply idle, you better start cooking your mind. We all know that an idle mind is the devil’s workshop.
What am going to share with you doesn’t require much. If you have a smartphone or laptop and internet access, the sky is the limit.
1. Writing and Translations
Many people are gifted in writing without knowing. You will find them writing long poems and stories but fear to display their creativity.
They are misguided by how society will perceive them. After all, don’t you know that in Africa, if you’re not a doctor, engineer – you’re almost equal to nothing?
It doesn’t end there, others know more than one language but fear to translate
Either way, learn from me, if you’re good with writing and translation, you can become a writer, translator and so much more if you decide to get serious with your gift.
2. Graphics design
Graphics design is another big deal. With little basics in computing and a few tutorials on YouTube, you can progress from a beginner to a pro in no time.
People today are looking for more graphics designers more than ever.
The commonly used software for graphics designing includes Photoshop, Illustrator, and Corel Draw.
3. Web Design and Development
While many people go to schools to become software Engineers and Developers. There are few like me who taught ourselves and found a way to position our skills.
If you’re good at web designing and development, it’s high time you rise from your tantrum and actually think of doing something with your skill.
Many businesses and individuals are looking for web designers and developers to take on their projects every day. Why not start selling your services today?
If you have a large following on social media, that’s a good starting point. Offer to advertise products/services of businesses.
You can go the extra mile and create fan pages and become an influencer on Instagram
If you’re affiliated with any affiliate networks, you will be earning commission for every purchase made through your affiliate links.
5. Business Plans
If you know how to frame a business plan – many projects will come your way. The majority of businesses require business plans in order to be successfully implemented and that’s where you come in.
Business plans act as a road map to any business.
Properly designed business plans will earn you credit and more people will come looking for you to design for them a business plan. So why not sell these services online and start earning.
Many of the services discussed above are freelance services that you can offer on any of the freelance sites.
Freelance sites include:
Be sure to capitalize on your skills and become a freelancer.
I wish you all the best.
