Jobs are never secure and I have worked for over 11 years, mostly employed full time.
The problem with jobs is that you are always one email away from losing your source of income and you have to butter up a lot of people you do not like and may even work with people you hate.
If you have a side-gig generating some income (at least income to pay rent and food), then you are kind of invincible. You are not rich, but you will have peace of mind like never before.
When I was working full time, I had few sources of income that was generating me an excess of $6000 a month–which was more than my salary at that time.
Needless to say, I was never afraid of getting laid off or sucking up to my boss.
This lack of fear is one of the reasons I got kicked out of the company I had started after it raised funding.
So without further delays, let me guide you step by step on how to get entry level digital marketing jobs which is beneficial for you in the long run.
