Does anyone ever wonder when a better time to start a new hobby is? A new job? Get a new house and lot? Start a new business investment? The answer is, there is no right answer. No one can ever tell when the “time is right.” It might be today, or it could be in the next two years for all you know. But, 2021 could be the year to start a new hobby to foster new relationships. The year to finally take the opportunity of investing money in business.
Quarantine has not been easy for the whole society. Some people have lost their jobs, but they did not let that stop them from generating income. As long as you have the capacity, there is no reason why you should let that stop you either. One of the most efficient ways you can earn besides diving into Digital Marketing is investing your savings in the right businesses. If you have successfully invested your money in a venture that works for you, that investment can take you miles; trust that.
If you wonder what kind of businesses you should invest in and why, fret not, for here is a list of new investment opportunities for every one of us.
Online Professional Consultations
With the growing shift to digital marketing, many people have left their traditional jobs for a more convenient way of working. Several professionals like lawyers, doctors, teachers, and even real estate agents and companies have switched from working on-site to working from home. Some offer one-on-one online consultations, and some offer web group consultations and classes. One could also offer face-to-face consultations for specific customers, but the government strongly advises against it in this pandemic.
Although the internet has made everything so much easier, conducting business online is not as easy as it may sound. There is still a lot to learn and much room to grow. At Camella University, a considerable number of short courses are available for anyone willing to enhance their craft or learn about an entirely new subject!
While some workers have returned to their respective offices, some are also still working from their homes. Tutoring services like ESL (English as a Second Language) have been highly in-demand, especially when most of the students are struggling to shift into online classes. When working from home, one needs to be comfortable enough to sit all day and stare at the computer screen. If the question is what affects the level of comfort when working from home, the answer might be the environment. Some schools and companies require their tutors or teachers to have adequate lighting, good background, and, of course, a minimal-noise environment when teaching. In the digital #MoreSpace campaign that was previously launched, Camella highlights the need —and presents the advantages of—having enough space inside and outside your homes, especially during times when space affects work efficacy.
Camella takes pride in its offerings to help families and their members in this pandemic. Let us face it, and one can be stressed even within the comforts of their home. A pause is what everyone needs. In times of mental and physical exhaustion, never forget to eat a favorite snack or maybe grab a delicious cup of coffee. One may start by locating the nearest Coffee Project and savor the homey atmosphere it offers.
Invest in Yourself
Although this might sound not as much an investment, investing in oneself is one of the best things to do. One might have heard this line somewhere from a self-uplifting speech or a TedTalk or maybe from their favorite Youtuber, but believe it or not, investing in oneself is also a form of self-care.
One can invest in many ways aside from exercising, adopting a new skincare routine, sleeping early, and eating healthy. With endless resources available online, one can cultivate knowledge and expand one’s learning by attending webinars, conferences, and courses that grant new-found skills with certificates to help launch and strengthen careers.
Though one will be shelling out money, it will certainly be well-spent. This self-investment can help earn more and maybe get the dream promotion one has always wanted! In this rapidly changing world, the only way to remain updated and relevant in anyone’s work is still to be progressive. Confused about where to start? For starters, check out Camella University for some short courses one might be interested in and want to take up.
No matter how self-gratifying a full-time job is, a side hustle is always an excellent option to gain extra income. When frequently scrolling through Facebook or Instagram feeds, one would see online sellers going live and promoting their products. These products come in the form of everyday clothes, pandemic essentials (masks and face shields), branded bags, and even formal clothing like gowns and suits! Just like that, one can adopt these ideas and start an online selling platform. Besides this, there are many more side businesses to invest in.
For creative people, venturing into Graphic Design can help put ideas out there. It is relatively more comfortable now to have access to a vast majority of software and websites focused on design, like Adobe Photoshop, Adobe InDesign, and Canva, to name a few.
Blogging is another notable side business to try for people who have a way with words. One might think,” Blogging? It’s still a thing?” Yes, Blogging is always essential. Recent blogging statistics show thousands of bloggers earning tons by creating diverse content from home cooking to lifestyle. It is not yet too late to stimulate creativity and start a blog to make that extra income!
With the growing advancement of technology, smartphones have become a need instead of a want. One can already use a smartphone to conduct business, finish pending work, and even answer exams.
Use this opportunity to its advantage and start selling phone cases. People nowadays do not buy phone cases just for their phone’s protection but also for aesthetic purposes. Now that is what online sellers focus on. Pay attention to the simple yet eye-catching designs that are trending these days. This heavily adjusts to the trend, so one needs always to research and keep track of what is in.
While having the resources to venture into a side business is more than a good thing, having the skills to market it is even better. No matter how good a side business seems, a good marketing strategy will always provide better results and ROIs (Return on Investment). Check out Camella University for short courses on Digital Marketing and more.

Real Estate Investment
Real estate has proven itself to be, yet again, one of the most substantial investments of all time. Its dictionary meaning involves the purchase, ownership, management, rental, and/or sale of real estate for profit. When one already has all the resources to invest in real estate, the next step is to choose what kind of property it would be, whether it may be a house, a house and lot, or a condo unit. True, investing in real estate or even any kind of business requires long hours of decision making, and frankly, quite a huge amount of money. But while this is a significant cash outflow, take advantage of the fact that the property’s value appreciates over time. Available is an option to sell it or put up the property for lease to ensure steady passive cash flow. If one does not like so, passing it to future generations is also a smart move.
It is also important to note that anyone wants to invest in a conveniently close property to essential establishments. Is the property near a mall so one can easily buy everyday needs? What if there was an emergency and I needed to go to the hospital right away? Is it easily accessible? Does it allow pets? Can everyone still do their outdoor hobbies? What about a late-night coffee run? Are there any coffee shops nearby? Is it a township with reduced air pollution?
Last but not least, is it safe? Worry no more, for Camella offers a wide array of properties situated in different prime locations within the nation. There are properties in Metro Manila, where all the hustle and bustle is. Additionally, properties are located in places near the metro like Cavite, Bulacan, and many more while still surrounded by the basic lifestyle necessities.

It is high time to invest in safety and security only at www.camella.com.ph.
Last but not least,
Investing in Relationships
Now this investment can be in different forms: family, friends, and colleagues. At the forefront of every person is their family. In pursuit of working harder to gain more money to live a better life, it is inevitable to get too caught up in it. Sometimes, when working too hard to achieve superficial dreams, one may lose sight of what is important- it is right in front of you. Maybe one is not hanging out with his friends anymore, not paying attention to significant others’ worries and no more time for weekly family dinners.
Do not let these bonds sever.
Doesn’t everyone work to have a better life? To make their family’s life better? This all gets washed down the drain when they fail to protect critical interpersonal relationships. There is no such thing as an easy job. Everyone struggles in their ways to make a living. But it is in times of struggle when we appreciate life and everything it has to offer. Think about it, doesn’t everyone feel good to be able to go home to families and loved ones after a long day at work? To come home to someone waiting for them? This warm feeling makes their jobs more rewarding, and protecting their loved ones’ smiles is something all should not forget to do.
In this pandemic, making a living has been proven to be relatively more challenging. But this is not the time to give up. As a famous saying goes, “difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations.” Use this struggle to reflect on one’s selves, discover hidden talents, and nurture existing relationships.
After reading this, may everyone find the courage to embrace change and innovate.
At Camella, anyone will always have a home.
