How to earn more

HR-expert Alexandr Bilous am sure that the majority of Ukrainians can find the opportunity to earn extra money for their own profession. “Teachers can earn by private lessons, doctors moonlighting in the private clinics, skilled workers, like plumbers, podrabatyvala, making in-home services. Hairdresser, manicurist. Journalists, for example, can write lyrics for money for non-competing publications,” – says the expert.

In addition, Belous advised to look for ways to monetize their own hobby. “If someone is good at drawing – to sell the paintings, not only to give. If someone makes jewelry – there are sites where you can implement it,” advises Alexander Belous.

Every Ukrainian in addition to their main profession, can study new “expertise”, says the founder of the training center “Cashflow Ukraine”.Alexey Polovinkin. This may be an accounting service, a psychologist. The best option, says Alexei Polovinkin, to develop your own training and sell it online.

“To sell their “expertise” via the Internet. Here there is the difficulty that many do not know what to do, afraid to show themselves. Saying that I’m not the expert. Then you need to work on self-esteem. It can be live, or make your own course to sell online, then it works 24 hours a day,” says Alex.
