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.

19 year old pharmacy student-businesswoman from Pampanga. I, Kimberly Chaile D. Ocampo, started planning my own business back when I was 18 years old. Despite being a student, that did not stop me to work and start up something for me to earn my own money. I was also influenced by my parents who are both hands on when it comes to the marketing world. I have decided to start my own mini restaurant/fast food restaurant recently (Feb 2020) and it was named as “Hungry Hubb”. From the word itself which is “Hungry” we thought of something that would give people the biggest hint that we sell food.

Because of the sudden quarantine, every store was forced to close for our own safety that is why there was a sudden decrease on our sales. But Hungry Hubb managed to survive by focusing on online selling and social media promotion. Our best seller would be Shawarma salad which is mediterranean style. We add authentic Garlic sauce to our shawarma (Which is available in Wrap, Salad, & Rice). Every product that we sell are very affordable and delicious. Our starting price is only 50php. (Shawarma Wrap). For Shawarma Salad (70php). We also have Milktea (60php) and Rice meals such as Lechon Kawali, Chicken barbecue, and Pork Barbecue for only 120 pesos.

And of course, I wouldn’t make it up this far without the help of my family and friends who have supported be from the very start. This is an open letter and inspirational especially to students that want to earn their own money. Nothing is impossible. You just have to be determined enough to turn your plans into reality.
