I resigned from my full-time job 3 months ago to work as a freelancer but this was before Covid-19 got worse. Does anyone know if the government has measures to help freelancers like me tide over?

I'm worried that I will not have any source of income for the next few months as lots of projects and events have been cancelled. I've already lost two projects in a period of 2 months...

I would like you to focus on what is within your control. What you cannot control is how much the government can support you, and to what extent. What you CAN control are the ideas you can use to pivot and adapt to the current environment.

What is your current role? Can it be done online? If it is not possible, is there any supporting service that can be done online?

Look, even if the government steps in and help its citizens, it would be enough, at least not for my standards.

In a meritocratic society, we are all responsible for ourselves.

There's a saying that we're defined by the questions we ask.

And I understand your situation, as a self-employed. We only eat what we kill. I wake up everyday thinking of how am I going to get my buck, next deals.

However, consider asking yourself: "How do I give people value in this current situation?" "What do people need that I can contribute?" "What can you do to help the government?"
