This past year has easily been one of the most devastating in recent memory, with more men and women suffering from issue surrounding the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Looking back through history, there has never been a period that has been as tumultuous as this one in recent memory, and while many people have unfortunately succumbed to the ill-effects of the pandemic, thankfully, many of us have managed to make it through and been able to maintain our health and overall wellness enough to hopefully see the light at the end of the tunnel. And now with pharmaceutical companies finally discussing things like the possibility of a vaccine on the horizon and other health benefits, its only a matter of time before those individuals who are sick or are currently part of the “at-risk” age and health group, should be able to finally get access to the vaccine and protect themselves as well as their families from whatever ill-affects the news is declaring to be on the horizon, as a part of what they are referring to as the “second wave” of the Covid-19 viral pandemic.
Despite the almost constant wave of bad news, health issues, and economic issues that we have been hearing throughout the news for the past year, while many are in a fairly bad spot financially, many others have been able to see their way through things. Most of these individuals or families are people who are either fairy well off financially or those who have been lucky enough to have been able to keep their jobs, or are working from home. And those in such a position, in many cases, have actually been able to come out ahead financially and been able to leverage the ability to work from home, into making more money, or creating what we often refer to as a “side-hustle” – whether that be through investing the money they are saving by not going out or doing thing during the pandemic or by taking on additional money-making ventures. One of the most interesting and most common of such “side-hustles” has definitely been things like landscaping, home renovations, and some form of home remodeling. While many individuals started off such things as mainly a hobby, in an effort to simply improve the aesthetic appearance of their home and garden, they soon realized that having the time to spend at home and not having to go to the office on a daily basis, allows them to improve their homes, and other home they are looking at as investment vehicles.
That extra time allows them to “manage” the work, and supervise it so that it is done in the way they want it to be. However, while such investments can be quite lucrative and make families a healthy additional side income, it takes a lot of knowledge, and without the proper education on certain aspects, mistakes can lead to a tremendous financial loss.
