A few weeks ago, I was talking to a friend who was in her third trimester. During the chat, I came to know that she was worried about her new stay-at-home life even after the repeal of the COVID-19 lockdown. Her main worry was about adjusting to a new life in which her career would dissolve under responsibilities. She was undoubtedly excited about her motherhood, but about her work life, she was clueless. So, that’s been the trigger of this article which I believe will be useful to many moms and dads who would love more family time while ensuring a steady and proper income to take care of every financial aspect.

I know that now the COVID crisis has broken our backs badly, but I am sure that our spirits will retaliate with positivity! And when they do, list a room in your house on Airbnb to host travellers. They would love to experience your local food and living. While you host a guest, you can charge a decent amount which they are likely to pay you over hotels that lack real hospitality. If hosting home is difficult, considering you already live in a small house or apartment or share your space with your in-laws or just too many family members, host an experience; take a client to experience the local cuisine or spend time in a flower-arrangement workshop. Anything.
