30 ways to make money during the Covid-19 crisis

The world has changed so abruptly in the last few weeks, right?

Working from home has made us rediscover our talents and skills and to make use of it. Let’s look at the bright side of being in lockdown 🙂

First of all, let’s be grateful for technology. It provides us with a venue to make extra money and network with anyone & everyone around the world.

When the World Health Organization officially declared this pandemic, many businesses and companies (like us here at Academy of Entrepreneurs) switched to remote work models and that allow their team to work from home.

Not having to travel to work has given extra downtime for us to learn new skills and set new goals, such as turning our talent & hobby, into a business. In my case, to make use of my extra time, I have decided to enrol to an online class of coding & programming using Python with Pirple.com. It’s a skill I’ve been wanting to learn for a while now but it would never be possible if not because of the global situation.

Let’s be positive and turn “tragic into magic”
