You’re at home, you’re bored, and you’re wondering what to do and how to get your next pay check. Trust me, every single young person I’ve spoken to over the past few weeks is struggling with the same thing. Part of me is too, battling how to continue to inspire you when I feel like everyone and their dad hasn’t felt inspired since January!
Just because you’re home doesn’t mean you have to be doing everything or nothing. I want to start off this post by reminding you that just because everyone is saying you should start some type of company or proceed with an idea doesn’t mean that it’s right for you. If you’ve felt the urge to do something, one of the below ideas could be a fit.
Start a Tumblr. One thing I love about Tumblr is that it’s easy to make connections from there. Whether you’re pinning content from someone else or pinning your own pictures, there’s little intimidation like there is on Instagram, and you can virtually meet new people. If you want to know how to come up with the right idea, click here. The expectation that you have to have a meaning behind everything you post on a blog or Tumblr isn’t true – sometimes you actually find your purpose more by posting anything that inspires you.
Start an Upwork or Fiverr account. In my Master Class, I talk often about how easy it is to make residual income by making a profile on one of those sites. You may be good at making pictures on Canva, you may be good at writing, or you may be good at tweeting. Either way, you can make money and learn a talent easily on either site.
TAKE A COURSE! Learn something! You can take the master class with me and I can walk you through some other ways I virtually made money when I was first starting out, but there’s a ton of other courses at there to educate you. If you’re deciding not to go back to college in the fall, don’t fall into the comfort of taking a gap year just because it’s easy. If you’re not going to be learning anything at college, try to do something every week where you learn something new.
