    Sure thing. If I have a good job as well, I save my side gig earnings and use that towards future work and making my stuff even better. It’s like an extra revenue stream.

    I was just talking with a friend about this, and that’s another reason I don’t want to over-invest in the crypto market. I’m scared about losing all of my profits.

    I think some new rules will be set after this. They already tried to remove the stocks from apps, but after backlash they added it back with limited options.

    To my knowledge, you don’t need a lot to start investing. I think I invested like $60 a while back in the market. I didn’t stick too much with it, but it was a start. I like to go low so I don’t overspend as well.

    I wish I stuck with college. I dropped out after 3 years and regret it. Thankfully I was able to find something that worked for me, and kept it going since. I think these days, college isn’t needed, but if it works for you, the more power to ya! 🙂

    Yeah, I never heard of a union for people working online or doing freelance work. I suppose if you worked for an entity or something, and did freelance work. But I don’t know how you would work it out when working on all kinds of sites/services.

    I invested in some kick-starters if that counts? There was a kickstarter about a water bottle that fills up water from the air. It turned out to be a lie of a product that didn’t work as advertised.

    My pet peeves are more towards starting out. It’s very tough to get established working online. I wish it was a lot easier, but with hard work it eventually starts to work out. I just wish it was a lot faster.

    There’s this new currency called Pi Coins I think and you can invest in it by using their app. You can mine the coins through their app, and don’t need any special hardware. I mined a little bit, but you need to click mine every day, and I forget lol.

    That would be considered a new startup correct?

    I have tried to mine cryptocurrency, but I don’t think I did it right, as I didn’t draw in any revenue. Unless my PC at the time wasn’t up to snuff to do it, I wouldn’t have known at the time.

    Anyway, I still would like to invest in something like Bitcoin or Litecoin or some kind of digital currency.

    Never invested in the forex market before. But I have been interested in learning more about it. Plus, being able to exchange for other currency would be helpful whenever I plan to travel more.

    Yeah, I never rush anything. You need to prepare, you need to know the possible pitfalls as well. A friend of mine rushed into an idea of his too fast one time, lost thousands of dollars because he thought his idea would draw in the profits. It did not, and he had to declare bankruptcy because of it. It’s one reason I’m very cautious about investing into anything.

    That’s cool. I used to work freelance sites, but dropped out of them, as the amount of people working got to become too much. People were also under-cutting me and were trying to get me to fail, as they would charge much cheaper prices for a lot more. Of course they didn’t provide the greatest quality, but they provided quantity and that’s what some people prefer.

    Anyway, left the freelance game and started running social media accounts for people and helping them build and run them as well.

    Of course, social media is huge and has wide potential to draw in more eyes. I use social media exclusively for pretty much everything these days. From Faceook, Twitter, Instagram, and more, really come in handy.

    As well, a lot of these sites have tools in place to promote and help showcase what you’re about.
