For some people out there, a disability can lead to a lack of self-esteem, which can lead to unemployment, which in turn means cash-flow problems. Tackling the situation all in one go seems like a task for an Olympic gold medal level motivational speaker – because convincing yourself of the plan is the first step, and sticking to it thereafter isn’t easy. It’s a different story if you need a lawyer in relation to social security matters (click the link to find out more). But if you’re ready to get back on track, let’s look at how you can turn things around today.
Make money today
Making money from the comfort of your own home can actually be exceptionally easy. The first tip is to use social media marketplaces to sell things that you don’t need anymore (e.g. an old keyboard, a hairdryer, a computer monitor, shelving – literally anything that is still in working order). The reason for choosing to sell on social media is simple – buyers come to your door, cutting out all of the postage requirements and also removing any seller costs that may be imposed by other leading ‘marketplace’ style sites.
Second, if you have a skill such as web design or video editing or copywriting, you can sign up to websites and sell your skill as a freelancer. The more work you do, the bigger your portfolio, the more work you’ll get. Simple.
Write a step by step list
Finding full-time work from a standing start isn’t easy. If you have any experience you can call upon, that’s great, but you may wish to break away from any past experience that you didn’t enjoy. The problem is that you may be starting with the tip of the pyramid, with that being the end goal of the ideal job. This, in fact, is only a problem if that’s where you start with all good intentions but then also end defeated. Whatever it is you want to do, you’re going to need to reverse engineer a step by step list towards securing a position in that line of work.
For example, let’s say you want to become a chef. There’s the chef school way. That can cost money. And if you don’t have the money, this potentially isn’t the path for you. However, kitchens have more than one role available. Starting as a pot wash may be a way in. From here, you can help the starter chef. Once you have trained under a starter chef, you may be able to get experience helping a sous chef. From there… well, you get the point.
