Covid-19 Pandemic

How should I earn money during COVID-19 quarantine is one of the most popular and troubling questions at the moment.

Coronavirus is severe and deadly! You have no idea who has it, who can survive it, and who can’t? 

But while you’re at home, being with your family, nothing hurts you the most than seeing your family struggling to live comfortably once again, especially if you’re in financial crisis because you lost your job. What if the pandemic will take longer than two months, and you have no other source of income?

What if one of your family members gets sick? We do not want this, but at the same time, we can’t control this either. So the best thing we can do is to prepare and find ways.

As humans, our number one basic needs is to survive. Every deepest desire we have are controlled by our primary desire to fulfil our number one needs which is to survive. During the COVID-19 pandemic, everyone struggles to find ways to survive; hence panic buying, bashing, and blame games continue to persist. 

Almost all industries are profoundly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, especially the manufacturing, wholesale trade, travel, recreation and personal, information media and telecommunications, property and business, transport, postal, rental spaces, and so many more. 

What is the hope for the people working for these industries? 

What are the primary steps they can do to survive? Many of these industries stopped operating and haven’t mentioned specific plans if they should run again or not. 

Regardless of the plans of these industry-owners, people will need to survive. They need food, medicine, moral, emotional, spiritual, mental & financial support. They need all the help they can get. Everyone needs help that they can get. 

Those who are still earning well during the COVID-19 pandemic are indeed lucky.  How about the ones who are severely affected and struggling financially? What is the hope for them? 

Below, I have listed tips that you can consider, on how to earn money while staying at home during the COVID-19 quarantine. 

  • Sell your used but not abused stuff – If you have old stuff like gadgets, bags, clothes, shoes etc. that are still useful – you can clean them up, and start selling them at affordable rates. You can sell them online, display them in your garage where people can see them, or you can offer them to people you know might need them and can afford to buy them.
