The age of freelancing and side business

A new wave of freelancing is here, one that excites me.

With the advancements made possible by smart devices: phones and laptops connected to the internet, freelancing suddenly looks like something that could empower lives.

Anybody can now freelance on the side. Working a free spare hours every evening and getting paid.

For example, a teacher that loves teaching kids but despises the low pay can easily boot up a new life as a Website developer, making websites for people at nights and weekends. Over time, the web developer by night will be paying the bills while demanding little of his time.

Anybody working full time anywhere can boot up a side gig, selling stuff online. You can setup your own website or use a marketplace. With a few clicks on your phone, you can quickly monitor orders and dispatch goods after confirming payment.

All you need is a website and some clever automation that keeps things running.

I think any full time staff anywhere that doesn’t have a little side business going online is cheating herself. You can explore our articles about making money online to see learn more about how this can be done.
