How I earned money from Quora

I sold my time answering questions at Quora.  If I can so you can.  Way back in August 2016 I was urgently looking for a client to make some money and pay my bills. I often use email marketing to reach to potential customers. 
I filtered my email and found an email where client said to get back to me later.  I followed up the communication and emailed again asking if there is any work.  This time reply came like,  yes,  can you answer questions over Quora.
Next phone conversation happened.  Requirement was to answer questions around copy writing,  seo and social media marketing.  Next come budget in question.  Since this was some consultant who was outsourcing work to me,  price was obviously low,  but not bad.  I got set for Rs. 2500 per month other than weekends. I received 50% upfront.
In freelancing we need to over deliver not only one,  two or three times but 10 times more. 
I answered 3 to 5 questions daily.  And at the end of the month I got a repeat customer to work on other projects. If I can so you can.

5 points to consider when starting Solopreneurship

A solopreneur is not an entrepreneur. Sorry being honest. A Solopreneur is entrepreneur in the making. So when starting a business SOLO you need to know many things. How many things and what exactly cannot be said in a page. Answers varies in accordance with circumstances. However, here are 5 things everyone should know when starting a business alone.

Whatever you are supposed to do or sell, study its market size. Meet people, interact, know, since how long they are in this business. What they think, how will be market for the said business, product or service. If it will rise, go steady or fall.

3.Time
Doing business is 10 times more tiring than doing a…

3 reasons website development is long lasting business

Website Development as a business is mushrooming everywhere. There is no shortage of Human Resources. At some points it appears like Web Dev companies will be washed out.
Being a web producer at times i think for how many years this profession will stay. Today anyone can build a website. There free tools and tools for little prices.
Often few of friends say, leave this profession, this won't stay in the race. But when I look back, I find huge growth of websites over the years and it's growing.
So I feel website development will stay in the race, may be not always but its life is long lasting.
Here are reasons why website development as a business will survive.
1. New job seekers are more open to do business. Every business will need a website to reach to customer.
2. Every business owner will not be developer. People come from diverse backgrounds. Making a website is pretty easy but making a presentable website is equally tough.
3. Learning new techniques need time and effort…
