Volunteer your services. Better to be working for nothing than working at nothing. Most charities would love to hear from you. Help people. Make a difference. Do something wonderful.
And you don’t have to volunteer for charities – many small businesses struggle to exist. Help a friend or a friend’s friend to succeed in their new venture. Each bit of experience you collect has massive potential benefits:
- CV enhancement
- New contacts
- Karma credits
So I recommend that you embrace any opportunity to get involved. Of course, be careful not to get a reputation as the person who does things for free.
