I need to find a way to make more money. The problem is that I have very little energy as I am yet fully recovered. The only thing I can think of is a home-based business. I am already teaching from home two days a week, at my students' place another two days a week. There needs to be more I can do with whatever little energy I have left.

If my friend who owns the pet shop in my neighbourhood can firm up his new investor, I might get a chance to work there part-time. Apart from helping him with his shop's online presence, I can help out on the retail front as well as implement a proper marketing strategy. But that is a very contingent plan.

The only thing I can think of else-wise is to set up a freelance online business. In this current economic climate the only products people will buy is anything that saves them money.

Speaking of money, I am thinking of reviving gift-giving at Christmas. I haven't done so in years because I find it to be a tedious and somewhat trite affair. But it is meaningful and I want to bless the people who have blessed me. But that means money. Back to the problem mentioned above.
