      Good stuff. I’ve watched several of your videos. I have a video idea. Why don’t you do a video on jobs that college students can do between classes. They can do these jobs at Starbucks, the school library, etc. I know they can do freelance work like writing for Problogger, Upwork or affiliate marketing., but are there companies that they can do the work in libraries or a coffee shop for an hour or two ?
