Hello all, from my user name you will see that I am a retired person. I have done some work from home before - mostly typing. My main client hasn't sent me stuff for a long time (I think her own supply of work has declined to be honest). I had an illness a few years ago - not fatal but I just don't have the spring in my step I had before; I used to be okay for my age at least - and long story short I've let things slide. Also, I had a laptop stolen earlier in the year - password protected and nothing confidential on it and it was pretty old to be truthful but - but I need to get some player software as my 'new' refurbished laptop doesn't have any. The trouble with Express Scribe is it doesn't play the DS2 and DSS files. Sorry to go on a bit. I do need to bolster my pension because my house is old and needs repairs done. I also made a significant hole in my savings last year having some new windows put in. I was accepted for one of the typing mills but I hadn't typed for them for over 3 months so I'll have to re-take the test. I didn't mean to write a saga starting this - looking at some of the side hustles available online some of them seem to want tasks done with the mobile phone. I am a dunce with my 'smart' phone (purchased 2nd hand). Has anybody any suggestions for familiarising myself properly with the apps on the smartphone - I mostly use the Chrome browser when I'm using it. I've looked at fiverr but it looked like the world and his wife were on there - I'd have to get my thinking cap on to see if I could come up with a way to make myself stand out. Does anyone think there's anything I've overlooked regarding avenues for getting work? Here endeth pro-temp the long and winding epistle according to Retiree.
