I knew the internet had so much to offer right from my high school days, but I didn’t know how to make the most use of it for financial gains. Over time – what I did with my laptop and smartphones – which were often gifts from family and friends, was to browse through the social networks, looking for gossip about celebrities and enriching bloggers who were posting leads to make a living.
Funnily as jobless as I was, I spent the average of $50 every month on data and internet services for nothing. I must confess I had both good and bad experiences with some of the people I met on the social networks; while some became good friends, I also wished I could rewind the hands of time so that I will reject the friend request from some. I also realized that if you don’t have any goal or ambition you want to achieve using the social media, you will end up grooming the assassin that will blow off the head of your TIME by yourself. So, I expect you to understand that in all the years I surfed the internet browsing through the social networks, I indeed didn’t have time as I assassinated it ignorantly by myself on daily basis.
Therefore, next time a young person who is lost on the screen of a Smartphone says to you, “I don’t have time!” Just know he is a member of the “Time assassins’ club” which means, he needs help. Yes, real help! That was what I got from a friend who introduced me to the concept of the gig economy. He said to me, “do you know you can become a freelancer, working from the comfort of your bedroom for people all over the world, and getting paid in US dollars?” Doubting him, I asked him how, and what work will I be doing? You can become a creative writer, concept developer, and a brand identity service provider, he replied. Wow! When can I start? I screamed. You can start now with your….. pointing at the smartphone in my hand. Go to Fiverr.com.
Where to make money Online
Fiverr.com is where you turn your passion into cash and put IDEAS in black and white. On Fiverr, your success depends solely on your ability to pitch your skill to your prospective clients and the quality of the delivered job. My first ever order on Fiverr was an elevator pitch for a client somewhere in the New York City, which means, you can work from anywhere on Fiverr. It was also the first 5-star rating that I got on my review; this also means that I am a good elevator pitch creator. All thanks to my ability to share what’s on my mind and tell the story of my day daily on the social networks. This finally means, I actually unknowingly sharpened my creative and short story writing skills on the social media, thereby confirming Marthe Troly-Curtin’s affirmation that the “Time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time.”
