What are some popular side hustles in Singapore?
Tuition; there will still be a big demand for it. You'll need some level of qualifications however Emcee-ing. I've seen some friends host weddings for decent pocket money, but you need to have the gift of gab Ad-hoc sales jobs can be considered too, e.g. at IT show, where you just need to work for a few days

I think there are regulations for insurance financial advisors to be full time staff. Might be different now. Some of the other folks in the community can better advise.

Hello! I'm not a property agent. However, I do feel soft skills like negotiation and adaptability are important skills to hone in on when becoming a property agent. Technical know-how about property is crucial too. Currently, as at 1 Jan 2020, there are more than 30,000 number of property agents as seen from the Council for Estate Agencies website. From what I understand, one would need to take a Real Estate Salesperson exam prepatory course and pass the Real Estate Salesperson Examination, register for license, etc, before becoming a property agent. Although some may be under the impression that being a property agent can make you lots of money (it depends), property agents have to put in the hours, dedication and make sacrifices. With consumers being more property-savvy too, how can one as a property agent value add to their clients? Find out more from property agents themselves! It would be good to hear their experiences (:

What qualifications do you need to get a job as a web developer? How do I get started if I'm learning through online courses? Any other comments on the career?

For web devs, the minimum qualifications would be : Frontend languages and skills like React, Javascript, HTML, CSS. It would also be an added bonus if you know backend frameworks and knowledge as well like : expressJS, AngularJS, REST APIs, Database Management like MySQL Ultimately, even if you dont have knowledge in most of these areas, as long as you put in the effort to learn them, im sure you can easily find jobs as a web dev. Regarding how to get started, you can search on youtube for free content to learn more, or even start mini projects so that you can learn from hands on experience. You can also try udemy for paid courses ! If you have the chance, network a little so that you can get internship or job opportunities, because that is where you can learn the most !

I don't know how much my market worth is and am usually not confident of selling myself or giving a price, which is dangerous for a freelancer. Any advice on how I can get over this obstacle?

If you are new, I'd suggest you follow market rates or even go lower than market rates, just to get started and get some customers first ! After you had some clients, you will gain some confidence and you can accurately mark your prices based on your services and provided value. Cheers!

Shiny Things (Joshua Giersch) from Hardware Zone Forum once said: - If money is needed within 2 years, keep them in cash - If money is needed within 5 years, keep them in cash / bonds - Else, keep them in stocks I agree. Also, for young millenials like us who do not have a constant income (assuming you are continuing your education after you ORD), the returns we get from the meagre sums we invest are honestly almost negligible. I think it's a much better choice to invest in yourself, meaning to say, pay for experience and memories that will empower and enrich you! It'd make more sense in the long run because you increase your employability and therefore your disposable income as well, allowing you to invest more.

I have a diploma and I'm working in a good company. I have secured a place in NUS. My boss thinks I am performing very well, and is offering me a raise to stay. Should I give up my place in Uni?

About a 1% chance you will stay with this company till you retire, your degree gives you options outside of this job, your field/ major not withstanding.

At work I am constantly being made fun of, and also in my group of friends. While I know they are not doing it out of hate, how do I become witty enough to at least retort?

Haha! I'm sure if its a group of close friends, they are just teasing you because they like you as a friend and you always provide them with good, funny reactions! I have been the subject of such teasing last time and I think I often tend to retort defensively by teasing another person, thus shifting the focus away from myself. Then, I became the person who teases other instead haha. However, now thinking about it, I do feel bad about doing so as sometimes the jokes might hurt the other person, even though it is for fun. Nowadays, I tend to just make a joke out of myself for the fun of it and allow others to tease me. I know its all in the name of fun :)

I met my potential girlfriend to be at work, and we are in the same department. While our workplace does not discourage couples, I'm wondering if one of us should still leave the company?
Potential gf to be? Means still dating only la. If you decide to go serious, make sure both of you stay objective at work. While you don't want to bring work home, be sure not to bring your private moments into the office too. Can lunch tgt la but dont PDA in office pls. Depending on what sort of organisation you work in, and what department both of you are in, HR policy sometimes does not allow spouses to be in roles that may cause conflict of interest. I know this applies to spouses but not sure about bf/gf relationships. So maybe one of you change role in the company if need be. Unlikely that either of you actually need to leave the company. And just in case if yall stead alr but it doesn't work out, pls stay professional at work.
