With so much technology, nothing is impossible - not even being at home and earning money. Didn't we all experience it last year, and some of us are still on the same page. I know so many young mothers and fathers who had to leave their job or were forced to leave.
However, now we have learnt to accept the reality of new times. My 'moment of epiphany' happened in the middle of the pandemic when the entire world was on lockdown, and every social media profile was bursting with new trends from making dalgona coffee to trying the new feta cheese pasta. What I learnt more in those desperate times was that we can make money from anywhere - of course with the right means and in the legal ways.
I have narrowed my list down to the 10 best methods to mint money sitting at home! Yes, don't move from the comfort of your couch. All you need is the right attitude, your laptop, an internet connection and zero initial investment. Nevertheless, everything takes time to build, so having a lot of patience with yourself is key.
