The safety measure taken by affected countries in the form of lockdown has put a strain on people’s finances. Furthermore, many people have lost their jobs, and there is no source of income left for them. People are figuring out a ways to save as much as money they can.

The point is that everybody can turn their hobby into their side hustle, with dedication and a proper plan.
