Additional income as a single parent with TheONE

You just got through a divorce or, in the worst case, the death of your spouse. Suddenly you have a minimum income as a single parent with one or more children. Earning something extra is difficult because most jobs require you to be able to work at least from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. or from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. And this is also a variable work schedule that you have no control over yourself.

Additional income as a single parent with TheONE

Who brings and picks up the children from school, and who feeds them? Not to mention that they also have to go to tutoring or want to attend ballet lessons. You don't have the time or the money for it. Working from home via a live video connection on your Smartphone or computer can be a solution for you.

As a single parent you always run out of time and money

For people who haven't experienced it, it can sometimes be incomprehensible. The ever cheerful and energetic person who was full of life and always had advice and support suddenly doesn't show up anymore and doesn't have the time and money to do something nice anymore. You know that in the morning you have to prepare the food for the children, then take them to school, do the laundry, clean up the house, and then pick up the children again.


It doesn't stop there because you help them with their homework, bring one to soccer and the other to dance lessons, and when you get home, you start cooking. After dinner, you want to spend half an hour together, and once they are in bed, you calculate on a piece of paper how long it takes you to save up to buy the new shoes for both children. You know that their feet grow faster than you can save money, but maybe... with a bit of luck, you'll get it done.

Everyone is of value to everyone on TheONE

TheONE believes that everyone can be of value to everyone, and we facilitate you - as a single mother (or father) - to market your accumulated value. It means that we believe that through our platform, you can earn something with what you know and have learned at times when it suits you. One of our passions is to help you earn something from all the knowledge you have built up over the past few years.

TheONE is one of the most simple and free online platforms with which you can share with people from all over the world, on request, what you know, or have learned via a live video connection. That can be anything from; Accounting, raising children, gardening, (online) marketing, drawing, and painting or cleaning tips, and much more.

There's always something you know that someone else is looking for, and all you have to do is create a free profile and tell them what you know. People from more than 100 countries are already doing it, and you can only be contacted for questions when it suits you.

It's easy to earn some extra money as a single parent with TheONE

With TheONE, you earn money when someone calls you via a live video connection for a question you know something about. The first minute is free, and then you earn the amount per minute you want. The more you know, the more often you can be called for different questions, so don't hesitate to put on your profile what you have learned in recent years. People from all over the world are looking for answers to their questions. They want to be informed by a real person.

Of course, there are many answers on the Internet, but quickly find the right answer to a difficult question is not easy. For example, how to prune that one little tree that you don't know the name of. Or how to deal with the loss of your partner?


You don't have to be an expert to earn money with TheONE

Some people have questions about what it's like to be a single parent. They don't want complaints on some blogs. They want to talk to someone who is in the same situation. Others want to know how to make ends meet with little money or how to find the best lawyer. These are often straightforward questions with complicated answers that you may have experience with.

So you don't have to be an expert to share your knowledge. Experience with something or a situation can be more than sufficient. A listening ear too. Maybe you remember how many questions you had when you became a single parent, or perhaps you still have those questions that Google finds challenging to answer. If you register on time, you will receive up to 5 Dollar try-out video call credit to get answers to your questions.

Why would strangers call you via live video and pay for it?

Every day, Google has billions of searches. This number keeps rising because people can't find what they're looking for anymore. Imagine if you want to go on holiday to London and want to know some nice restaurants. You Googled "nice restaurants in London", but unfortunately. The first three results are sponsored, so they will probably not be the best.

The other results are at least one year old, and since a restaurant exists on average only two years, you are not sure if they still exist. Let alone that they are really fun. Who do you trust more when it comes to recommending a good restaurant? Google, or the person who looks you in the eye, assess who you are, knows the local environment, and then gives advice?

That's why people from all over the world will call you and pay a small amount per minute for your advice so that you can buy those new shoes for both children.

What do you do when you get an annoying person on the phone through TheONE?

Suppose your ex still wants to contact you and continues to stalk you. Can you sign up for TheONE? Or what if another person keeps calling you? For this kind of people, we have a block function. You block the person, and they can't see you anymore and never contact you again. If you file a complaint, there is even a good chance that we will block the person forever on our platform.

the one block users, prevent contact

What do you do if you get a call but can't answer via TheONE?

If you're busy for a while when you actually indicated that you were available, the caller can submit a callback request. It's just like a voicemail, with this difference that when you call back, the person who made the callback request will pay you for the call.

What can you maximally earn with TheONE?

What you earn is up to you by setting your price per minute. Of course, they will pay more for good marketing advice than for advice on how to get a stain out of a blouse. But it also has to do with how often you get a call. By sharing your profile often on social media and thus telling the outside world that you are available, you will receive more video calls. In principle, there is no limit to what you can earn. You are always of value to someone else, but how much that also depends on your effort.

How fast are your earnings on your account?

Anything you earn can be paid out immediately if the amount is higher than $20. The processing time is approximately 14 days, but in some European countries, this can also be 24 hours. That's nice if you ask for one dollar per minute, each day 20 minutes someone speaks to you, and you have earned 20 dollars extra every day.

How does it work with tax and additional income via TheONE?

Whether and how much tax you pay depends per country and per person. Ask for advice via TheONE or your own tax advisor.
