Do you support the quarrantine extension proposal or nah?
Here are some reasons why a lot of people in the Philippines and many other countries have trouble with life and finances.
What we expose our selves to - People exposed to toxic environments like air or noise pullution, emotional and mentally toxic envirnoments, for extended periods unknowingly suffer the most. When you are exposed to such, you become stressed and your thinking ability is compromised. Your creativity is hampered and you will find yourself doing the most confusing things.
For example, When you read the news in locations that have high pollution you come across a lot of incidents that leave you thinking WTF? Why would someone do that? How often do you hear of such things in less toxic areas.
A good solution is to take yourself away from toxic places/relationships, look after yourself no matter how odd it may look. Make it a priority to avoid stress.
Finances - Add as many income streams as you can. The more money you have coming in, the less likely you are going to make desperate financial descisions which end up frustrating you and leaving you broke which will result in stress and the problems it bings, as I mentioned above.
One of the biggest mistakes people make when looking for additionall income streams is that they look for something that brings in a lot of money almost immediately, this greed usually leads to them falling for scams and getting stressed. My solution is one brick at a time.
My suggestions based on my experiences:
I read a about how to make money and motivational content everyday for 30 mins.
I make around P500 a day on Coins.ph. I do not know much about bitcoin or trading and I have no interest in that. It works well for others, but I just find it boring. The bitcoin rate fluctuates everyday, so what I first did was to create an account and add P500. Each time the bitcoin rate increased above 50 pesos I would withdraw that to my peso account. I did this for a few weeks and had P50 everyday. After a month I increased the amount to P5000 and did the same thing until I was confident enough to upload an additional P5000.
I don't sit at my computer the whole day, I just use another app to notifiy me when the rate has increased above P10 500 then I withdraw it. To be on the safe side, these days I set the marker to notify me at P10 200 so that I withdraw P200+ twice a day into my Peso account. That is an extra P500 everyday. It could be more if I were to add more to my account, which I will.
Referral marketing - There is a huge growth in the number of people starting businesses around the world and two things that all businesses need are websites and marketing data (telemarketing lists and email lists).
I signed up with two programs for free and spend about I hour a day answering questions on blogs and social media where I recommend these products. I also have their banners on my blogs. When people buy any of their lists or websites, I get a commission on a weekly basis.
These are just a few examples, in total I have about 8 income streams and make above 50k from them every month, besides my main business. I am never broke, I have time for my family, I am less stressed and in good health.
Why am I sharing this? It doesn't hurt me at all to share this information to help others and I have the time. If you know any other legit revenue streams please list them below to help others.
Anyone here who works from home? How do you manage to stay focused on your tasks and do you manage?
I am having a difficult time concentrating
Hello! How are you? How's your 2020 so far? I hope you're doing fine.
Anyway, I know this is too sudden, so shameless and mean of me, but I have an extra large favor to ask of you. You can totally refuse me if you want, no pressure at all, I would totally understand. It's just that I need a large sum of money, and before anything else, I promise to pay it back, you can trust me on this. I know I'm asking for too much, it's just that I'm panicking. What am I panicking for you might be curious. Well, last week I realized something horrific. I'm about to graduate next year November 2021! (my heart is racing just saying this). I thought I still had YEARS before I graduate, but no, I only have this year and next. Jeez I sound pathetic, huh?
Anyway, I've been thinking about this since last year. You probably don't know this about me but I love everything about the Japanese, it's culture and it's language. I can already speak some words and I know how to pronounce, but I'm really just like a baby who's just starting to speak lol.
Anyway here goes. I want to borrow money from you so I can fund my Japanese language learning. I know this sound so absurd but there's a lot of money to be earned just by being fluent in this language. You know, in Manila there's a lot BPO companies hiring people who know Japanese with a salary starting from 50k to 150k. In Cebu, there's a hiring with 100k to 150k monthly salary. And even without those, there a ton of work opportunities in Japan when a person knows the Japanese language.
There's another reason for my panicking. In the Japanese language, there's a proficiency test called JLPT, wherein there are 5 levels. Starting from N5 for beginners to N1 for advanced business level fluency. By next year I have to be atleast at JLPT level N3 to be able to have balls to apply to these BPO companies.
So I am planning of using the money I borrow from you to learn level N5 and N4 now. From there on I can proceed smoothly to the upper levels. I know there are videos on YouTube for Japanese learning but it's just that I learn better in a classroom and it will be faster and more efficient to learn this way because there's a structure.
Okay, so here's the amount and my terms: 30,000 pesos to be paid for 24 months, so that's 1,250 per month plus interest of 100 pesos. So I pay you 1350 every month. I'm on a student budget that's why I'm asking for two years to pay the debt. If you don't like the interest rate, please tell me. I'm willing to submit anything you ask of me. Pictures of all of my ID and documents.
The Japanese language learning centers I've inquired near me asked for 25k to 28k pesos for their 300 hours japanese lessons. The extra money I'll get will be used for buying textbooks etc.
You might be curious as to where my parents are with this, they totally support me. We just don't have the money to pay the large amount upfront.
The JLPT exams will happen late this year and I'm hoping I could take and pass JLPT N4 by then.
Although this is truly unbecoming of me, I really need you to believe and trust me on this.
But of course, I'd totally understand if you refuse. You don't have any reason to trust me, I'm just hoping hehe.
Anyway, your eyes are probably hurting now, my angel. I'll stop here.
Again, thank you so much for everything. Thank you even for just reading this.
Hoping to hear your reply soon. Either positive or negative, I will still be forever grateful to you.
What is your take on this De Lima and U.S. saga? What do you think will happen?
