It probably doesn’t come as a surprise to anyone that many small business owners, or even full-time employees, are feeling the pinch from the coronavirus pandemic. This virus has everyone locked up in their homes with little to no employment opportunities. Some people don’t have any income coming in at all. Heck, even companies like Edcon (who have been around for decades) are having issues with the financial loss brought on by the pandemic.
There is simply no denying that most businesses are going to lose out on revenue. It might not reach the point where it bankrupts certain businesses, but they are all going to miss out on potential revenue. All that being said, you don’t have to let COVID-19 completely bankrupt you. Here are ways that you can supplement your income, even if you are locked inside your home.
