Currently, the Internet has almost 5 billion users. The vast majority of these people are consumers. A very tiny portion of them are creators.
While the Internet is the best alternative when you want to grow your skills with the lowest possible cost, in the same time, it is the perfect place to continue to grow and make a living out of these.
With other words, stop consuming and start creating. Be a creator.
Each of us Contributes to Changing The Economy
At the moment, the economy is undergoing a considerable change. Of course, any change has both good and bad parts. However, what is evident is that in 2020 people have worked from home more than ever.
Working from home allowed all these people to have more time for themselves, their families and their home. It allowed them to discover new things, start new habits, eat healthier, and rest more.
Simultaneously, cities seem to have been abandoned for a long time, millions of offices worldwide have closed, and human interaction has shrunk for one reason or another. While the latter is not healthy at all and will continue to affect people’s mental health, some of us have reoriented.
These people understood faster than others that being creators is the solution. To create online content and to make a living out of it, for the moment, is the best way to spend your days and feel better.
Welcome to the digital economy.
Take Advantage of These Moments and Create Online Content
Time can be an asset or a liability. It’s up to you how you use it. Even so, time does not stand still. It passes anyway. Then why not spend it in such a way that you enjoy the time you have left?
There are thousands of online platforms out there, of various kinds. You are already on some of those platforms. Instead of spending hours scrolling or watching multiple videos, it’s time to create content on these platforms. That’s because all eyes are on them.
When they hear the idea of creating online content, many people think they must have particular talents or skills. But this is far from reality.
You are already doing things that would allow you to make a living from creating online content. In fact, everything you do can be monetized this way.
All you have to do is to share some of these things online.
However, First, Consider The Things You Want to Give Up
The Internet is a conglomerate in which the most important rule is that nothing is free. Whatever site you would access, there will always be something you give, in return to the things you get.
Whether it is your IP, your preferences, what operating system you use, the passwords you use, other searches you’ve made, or so, you provide all of these in exchange for the information you receive from the site you enter.
Whether you want to or not.
To not be a victim of malicious cyber-attacks, or even worse, to not have all your life recorded in some databases, hidden underground, in a place forgotten by the world, you might want to check one of my articles.

Adaptation is The Watchword This Year
The fact that the world is continuously changing is not something new. However, it is becoming increasingly clear that the only way you can survive and continue to enjoy your life is to adapt.
It is known that when fear encompasses you, the rational lowers its flag. You are no longer able to see things as they are. You might as well imagine things that don’t exist and create all sorts of false scenarios.
With other words, it’s up to you what you want to see. However, if you want to get more out of this whole situation, it is time to treat online content creation as your escape to your financial freedom.
The Choice is Yours
No matter what you choose to do next, others have already understood this and are crushing it online. Many of them only have a laptop and an Internet connection. How convenient, right?
How long will it take for you to accept that working 40 hours a week, 8 hours a day, to be paid once a month, is no longer a sustainable way of life?
Make your parents proud and reach the next level during these times. Because while some see that the world is falling apart, others build online empires and provide a better life for their children.
Don’t postpone the decisions you already know you will make. Life is short. Adapt.
