Self-Employment Careers: follow trends (or lead them!)
There are vast numbers of working for yourself type careers available to you and many people choose to do these while working another job to support them as they launch this, or other full for part time work, or multiple types of side gigs. I personally recommend having multiple sources of income/revenue as this offers more financial stability in my opinion. If one source of revenue changes then you have other sources of revenue to fall back on. We’ll take a look at self-employment careers here. I welcome any feedback or comments from each of you to help others nurture their own business.
Some ideas to start:
- Find your passion
- Find a problem and solve it for someone
- Follow trends
The following trends requiring no degrees can lead to lucrative contract or freelance work (as well as traditionally employed careers):
