Broke and out of work what can I do that will make a difference going forward? It can happen to anyone so let’s look at ways out of the mire

A time to retrain

There are many online opportunities you can pursue but they all need a basic understanding before plunging into them.
I firstly recommend the free training at Wealthy Affiliate as a starting point. This has helped many individuals reshape their future

When it all seems desperate

  1. Apply for unemployment benefits: If you were laid off from your job, you may be eligible for unemployment benefits. Check with your local government to see if you qualify. This is a first step because you may get some money and they will help you find a new career
  2. Look for a new job: Start actively looking for new job opportunities. Check job boards, company websites, and career fairs. Network with friends and family who may know of job openings. This can become very emotionally draining so try and stay positive

Go freelance

  1. Consider freelance work: If you have a skill or talent that can be done remotely, consider offering your services as a freelancer. Websites like Upwork and Fiverr can help you find freelance opportunities.
    Even temporary jobs can lead to new opportunities

De-clutter your world

  1. Sell items you no longer need: If you have items you no longer need or use, consider selling them online or at a yard sale to make some extra cash. You will be surprised at the number of items that lay around unused but have good value.

Trim your expenses

  1. Cut expenses: Evaluate your spending habits and cut unnecessary expenses to stretch your budget further. Cancel subscriptions or memberships you don’t use, cook at home instead of eating out, and find cheaper ways to entertain yourself.
  2. Seek financial assistance: There may be local organizations or charities that offer financial assistance to those in need. Look into options available in your area.

Learn a new skill

  1. Learn a new skill: Use this time to learn a new skill or improve your existing skills. Online courses, workshops, and tutorials can all help you gain new knowledge and make yourself more marketable to employers.
  2. Volunteer: Volunteering can help you gain new experiences and skills, and also provide networking opportunities. Consider volunteering for a cause you care about or for a local organization.
  3. Stay positive: It can be difficult to stay positive when you’re out of work and struggling financially, but try to maintain a positive outlook. Surround yourself with supportive friends and family, and remember that this is a temporary setback.
