    I'm considering things like private tutoring for example, my friend who does it said I could earn £30-£40ph. Better than nothing...
    What would you teach ?

    You can get £30-£90ph depending on education and experience. I'd probably do primary school and gcse subjects. Just trying to think of Plan B's for a doomsday scenario

    I wasn't working during the 2008 recession, so no idea what people did to make ends meet.

    Having started contracting in 2000 in Telco, and with a CV to match(!), I found fallow years in 2001 in the telco sector, and, after finding my next contract in Travel in 2001, further fallow periods thereafter - unsurprisingly.

    But, I stuck it out, kept the company open and went tele-marketing and lead generating for a variety of companies. All paid into the LtdCo.

    Thereafter, I have managed to work continually all through all subsequent droughty periods without break. Even though my circumstance now means I no longer need to consider call-based work, if required, I would go back to that.

    Is there still a high demand for tele-marketing though? Majority of people nowadays, see marketing calls as scams.

    Good point. No idea.

    Mine were B2B calling via a Telemarketing agency into various companies at a time. I became relatively good at it because I ditched the script, having understood the salient points, and got them / tried to get them interested and engaged from the start.

    Am sure cold calling is still a dirty requirement though.
