7 ways chronic illness warriors can make money online
You should make more money online as a #ChronicIllness warrior.
I live with sickle cell disorder and just like other chronic illnesses, sickle cell affects every area of my life. From the physical pain to dealing with my emotions and then financial.
As someone with a #ChronicIllness, it might be difficult to find or keep a job yet the bills won’t stop.
In countries like Nigeria where I live and grew up, I know how hard it is getting a job for someone living with a #ChronicIllness that does not like stress.
To be honest accessing proper health is expensive (and essential) hence I need all the money in the world, if that is possible and I know many warriors are in my shoes. I decided to do some learning and research on making money online and I found different results so I wanted to share what I found with you.
In this post, I shared some ways to make money online. I now believe warriors need to build an online business and make money online because

yourself at the end. You can build an online business by just focusing on your business for at least two hours a day.

2. Self-publish on Amazon
If you ever thought publishing a book is only for writers, I tell you today that you have been making a mistake. Anyone can publish a book on Amazon.
Anyone can learn what it takes to self-publish on Amazon and you don’t have to publish a hundred page book. It can be as little as a journal. I attended a virtual presentation where the speaker talked about the business of self-publishing on Amazon and since then I have been learning a lot about self publishing on Amazon.
3. Create digital products
Selling digital products is a great way to not only make money on the side but also share your knowledge with the world. There is no capital involved, all you need is a knowledge that can transform someone’s life.

4. Become a social media influencer
Influencer marketing is fast gaining recognition worldwide. In fact, companies now prefer to pay influencers to promote their products than take it to the traditional media.

Pick a niche
Start sharing what you know

Influencer marketing has a lot more to do with trust than number of followers.
5. Start a YouTube channel
YouTube has 2 billion users worldwide and 79% of internet users have a YouTube account.People love watching videos, people love learning from videos. But the numbers should not pressure you, I advise you just play to your strength.
If you love to show your face, then start a YouTube channel. If you are like me, who don’t really like showing my face, play to strength.
6. Start a freelance business
A freelancer is a self-employed person who offers services, often working on several jobs for multiple clients at one time. Freelancing can be a great side hustle idea. Blogs like www.writingrevolt.com/blog teaches how to build a freelance business and make money as a freelancer.
7. Start a coaching/consulting business
Everyone is turning online for education and that gives you an opportunity to make money teaching someone. You do not have to be an expert to teach something, all you need is an edge above someone. At whatever level you are in, trust me someone needs your knowledge. So starting a coaching business might be perfect for you.
