It was a fun experience and I got to work with so many amazing clients by taking care of their blogging outreach and doing their PR.

Choose the right online platform

There are so many digital platforms to choose from, so take your time and choose the right online platform to suit your needs. If you are setting up a digital marketing, I would suggest you set up a website and make use of as many social media platforms as you can manage especially Twitter, Linkeldn, Facebook, and Instagram.

Do your research

It is important you do your research before you embark on a new side hustle as a digital marketer. Read as much as you can on the areas you are interested in and pay attention to the trends. There are so many useful resources online to guide on this journey, so make the most of the information.

Remember it takes time

Everything takes time, and slow and steady wins the race, so take it easy. Don’t compare yourself with others who have been in the digital marketing game longer than you. Do something small towards to your side hustle goal everyday and you will eventually get there. You only need 1 client to start off your side hustle gig.

Don’t leave your full-time job

If you work full-time, don’t leave your job just yet. Hold on to the pay check you are getting to start off your own business. Wait to see how your side gig starts off before you even contemplate leaving your full-time job.

5 Small Business Tax Tips

Keep accurate records

It can be tricky to stay on top of finances especially when the business is really but it is important to ensure you keep accurate records. Once you have accurate records, the whole tax season will be less stressful as you will have the records ready which will ensure you pay the right tax quickly.

Hire a qualified accountant

The best way to have a stress-free tax season is to hire a qualified accountant if you can afford to. A quick online search will bring lots of results for qualified accountants in your area. You could also ask around for a recommendation. It is important you hire ac competent and qualified accountant, so do check certifications before you hire.

For instance, if you are thinking of checking accountancy membership organisations UK to find qualified accountants, ICPA is one to check. Qualified accountants are usually part of a membership organisation for accountants in practice in the UK, so it is worth checking to see if the accountant you are thinking of hiring is part of a membership organisation.

Start early

I am an early bird and I like to do certain things quickly. Filing the tax returns early means you don’t have to deal with the crazy last minute rush. It also means you don’t get any surprise last minute tax bill. Once you file your tax returns early, you can conveniently spread the payments for your tax bill and that alone takes the pressure off.

Use an accounting software

If you can afford it, use an accounting software to keep accurate records, provide accurate information, and help minimise errors. A simple spreadsheet can do the work for you but for an easier and faster experience, go for a quality accounting software.

Set money aside for your tax bill

This sounds like common sense but the truth is it is easier said than done. Have some money saved up for the tax bill definitely helps and takes the pressure off. If possible, put some money aside every month towards the tax bill.

5 Freelance Jobs in demand now

I have been freelancing for almost 10 years and it is nice to see that the freelancing world is even busier now. Many people are choosing every day to become self-employed and with working from home being the new normal, there are more freelance jobs in demand now. What I love about being a freelancer is that I have the ability to plan my schedule. I have time to do what needs to be done at a time that is convenient for me. Although being a freelancer/self-employed person comes with loads of issues, it is very rewarding.

If you are playing with the idea of setting up your business or even testing the freelance waters on the side to see how it all goes, you have landed on the right blog! Here are 5 freelance jobs in demand right now:

Virtual Assistant

There are loads of Virtual Assistant (VA) jobs available online. You just need to search on the major job sites to find them. Virtual assistants are the new office managers and admin assistants. The role is so important as it allows business owners to pursue other aspects of their business, and leave the organising and managing to the VAs. If you have great organisational, time management, and IT skills, you may be able to start your freelance journey as a VA.


Freelance writers are always in demand and there are loads of freelance gigs available online. I have come across many and the rates are usually quite good depending on the niche and company. Medical/science writers tend to get a bit more than other niches but the experience itself is rewarding if you really like writing. Getting into the world of freelance as a writer is relatively easy if writing comes naturally to you. Having a blog helps as you can show prospective clients what you can bring to the table.


Do you have an excellent command of the English language, grammar, writing, and spelling style?  If you do, and you are detail-oriented with a good eye for spotting mistakes, you may be interested in pursuing a freelance career as a proofreader. The rates tend to vary depending on the niche and client, but there are loads of opportunities you could chase up online. There are also proofreading courses that could help you launch a freelance career, so have a good search online for one that catches your eye.

Social Media Manager

Being a freelance social media manager can be a lucrative gig with the right client. There are lots of opportunities online so the possibilities are endless. If you like the idea of managing a brand’s reputation online and if you have the skills required to grow an online presence, then you may want to look into being a social media manager.

Content Creator

And I saved the best for last with this job idea. Having your own blog allows you to create the content you want when you want. Clients do have input on what goes on sponsored content, but you have more room to make it yours since it is your platform. I have done all the jobs listed here (except one) and my favourite by a mile is this being a Content Creator. I love the flexibility and the fact that I have the final say on what goes on each content. It takes a while to earn regular income as a blogger, but once you have blogged for a few years, your income starts to build up.
