Online passive income

I've heard of those surveys and things that you can install to be able to earn money over time by just using your phone or computer but I never really looked into it because I presumed it was a scam. Who would pay you to just do what you did normally? However, through the short time today, I learned that it's completely possible and you could earn a couple of bucks online to buy some low-cost things. However, the downfall is that it takes an extremely long time order to be able to rack up money and be able to pay for things. But if you have the patience and time to spare, go check it out.

Branding and MVPs

Being an entrepreneur isn't easy and there are many steps to take. Your branding is one that majorly impacts how your business is running and viewed by the public and your competitor. Branding comes with many possible troubles and difficulties and sometimes it may be painful to find original and creative branding for your company however, there are many places that an entrepreneur can look to for help. One such place is Wix and there you can hire professionals or work on your branding yourself. Once your company is started, you're going to need some kind of product for your investors to analyze. That product is the MVP or minimally viable product. It's just a quick prototype that doesn't need much gold plating and it's just to get critiques and possible changes on to your product.

Keeping yourself safe in a company.

Starting a business can be risky, especially by yourself but even working with others have its own risks. Sometimes it's just a simple failure and your ideas don't work out with the public and other times it's a disagreement between the owners of the company. Either way, there are things to know in order to keep yourself as safe as possible. One of the most important things to know is when to give up and back out. If a company doesn't work out then the quicker you cut it off, the less money you'll have to waste on it.

Fundamentals of Entrepreneurship

Today, I got a peek into entrepreneurship and how to become a leader and start a business. Personally, there was always a thought lingering in my mind that told me that I needed connections and that I had to be the best in any room of people in order to become a great entrepreneur, however, I realized that what's required is much greater. There are many things I can do through body language in order to capture my audience and there are markets I have to watch as well as the perspectives of my consumers and peers. Starting a company isn't easy as well, you have to have an idea that would set you apart from others while at the same time maintaining results and having the ability to financially back u such results which I believe may be one of the hardest parts.

Ways to manage stress

I believe for people around my age stress isn't uncommon. However, efficient ways to deal with stress can be different for everyone. One that most commonly works would be just taking a break. Doing so can allow someone who's been working to be able to catch a breath and reorganize their thoughts in order to plan or work more.

Saying no was something I often felt was difficult to do and to this day it still is.

In fact, I've also learned ways of time management and ways to recognize scams online in order to protect myself.

Remote Jobs and how you can take a stab at it.

I've learned that remote jobs are typical for many around us. In fact, remote jobs provide employees with a vast amount of freedom in comparison to those who work specific shifts at their jobs. Employees can plan their day around their work and possibly even travel simultaneously. Such opportunities allow someone to work from anywhere and connect with many people around the world for their experiences and opinion at the same time. however, such benefits also come with downsides. This excessive amount of freedom can cause some people to slack off and be unable to complete their work. As a result, it's up to the employee to balance their day. Not only that, but I was able to explore ways where I can teach others online by uploading videos online and be able to make an income off of that however, as of now I'm not sure what skills I can provide.
