Social Media Influencer
Influencers today are making nearly seven figures from simply posting the right content.

Open An Online Store
Whether you’re selling your own homemade products or selling affiliate products, an online store is your go-to way for creating a supplemental income. Many entrepreneurs started online shops during the pandemic and have seen the fruits of their labor since then. Why? Because not only were they first in line for disaster relief funding, but because many stores were shut down during this time and communities were relying heavily on each other for support.
Setting up your own shop on websites like Etsy is a great place to start selling homemade goods. But if you’re looking to sell affiliate products, a hosting site where it allows you to set up a custom shop for affiliate products would work best with platforms like Shopify.
If you’re a graphic designer in today’s economy then you have a super large market for your services.

Do your research, listen to podcasts episodes, like this one, read the right books, ask the right questions, etc. Why? Because you’re one step away from fulfilling your dreams.
