While the country is gradually easing out of the enhanced community quarantine, there’s still a lot of uncertainty facing people not just about the coronavirus itself, but about their livelihood. In the past two months, many have taken to accepting commissions via Instagram, or baking goods for delivery at home--however, these aren't always sustainable for working students, and may not be enough for those who are also supporting younger siblings.

Self-employed professionals and entrepreneurs are particularly susceptible to major shakeups affecting the economy. If there was a time to learn a new skill, expand products and services, or find new income streams, it’s now.

Local online tax filing and payment platform startup Taxumo is launching an initiative to help people cope with the so-called “new normal.” The Passion Forward is a series of online sessions meant to teach professionals and entrepreneurs to basically stay afloat during and after the coronavirus pandemic.

The first session entitled “How to Keep Earning Despite COVID-19: Finding Multiple Income Streams for Creative Professionals,” will feature artist/illustrator Ella Lama. She has previously facilitated “Creative Career Roadmap” workshops for artists and entrepreneurs, wherein she discussed the basics of pricing, self-promotion, and business.

“During these uncertain times, we at Taxumo believe that helping people goes beyond alleviating the economic burden this pandemic has caused,” says EJ Arboleda, CEO of Taxumo. “We must collectively build an environment where we can hope for a better future, as we empower ourselves and our communities toward creating more meaningful work beyond this crisis.”

The #TimeforHOPE initiative will also offer professionals and business owners up to 80 percent discount on their subscription packages on Taxumo across all tiers, allowing them fulfill their tax obligations without breaking the bank. All they need to do is to share with Taxumo the story of how their business has been impacted by COVID-19 by emailing customercare@taxumo.com or chatting with them via the chat box on the Taxumo website.

This first Passion Forward online session happens on May 20, 2020, Wednesday, 8 pm, via Facebook Live on Taxumo’s Facebook page.
