If you do not have your own home-based business in place yet, get one as soon as you can. Base it on simple things that you’re good at and get the tax deductions and earnings you so richly deserve. Consider these five independent contractor roles to keep your ends together. Employers are reopening, curtailing guidelines, almost daily. Some are even giving employees deadlines to reaccept former positions at the risk of losing their job entirely. Some businesses have closed altogether and unemployment can feel uncertain. Whichever state of being you find yourself in at this time, consider adding a short-term remote role to move you towards increasing cash flow while physically distancing, doing a world of good, and planning your next steps toward a new decade.
REMOTE MEDICATION REMINDER
Become a Good Start Mentor with Pleio, a health support service based in New York City. Half of America does not take medication as directed. This can be dangerous and fatal. Good Starters mentor patients experiencing chronic conditions, who have been newly prescribed medicine. They altruistically provide 100 days to 18 months of medicinal support reminders, compassionate education, and the human engagement necessary to strengthen the recovering person. The result is an earlier refill time, and the health benefits of creating a routine. Encouragement never looked more fulfilling.
