During the testing times of the covid-19 pandemic, many individuals realised that nothing is set in stone, and being prepared for just about anything should always be an option. Relying on one income can be somewhat risky; unfortunately, some had to learn this through the pandemics and lockdowns that struck early in 2020. According to statistics, the lockdowns and restrictions imposed caused a loss of about one hundred and fourteen million jobs in 2020 alone. With statistics like this, many households most definitely had to resort to more sources of income. With this being said, the enormous shift to a digital world quickly created plenty of online opportunities for various skill sets. All you require is internet access, a reliable computer or laptop, and some skills development programs. In this article, we’ll look at three profitable hobbies that might suit your skills and lifestyle.
