Ok so Ole Evol Eric has a question for you all...

But before I get into it, I want to make it clear...

I am not lazy... I am not asking for hand outs...
I am asking for advice...

Less of course you work in the music industry...
then you can give me a hand out in the form of a record deal... then again thats not really a hand out is it?! lol

Ok so my situation...

I am married, My wife and I live with my parents... I am 26...
I live in the 3rd poorest county in America...


Southeastern Kentucky was home to four of the nation's poorest counties. The country's poorest county saw its median income drop $1,500 since 2000


Source

There is literally no job I can get around here...
I could drive hours and hours away... but I dont have a car...

There isnt any body I could ride with...

I literally live in the middle of no where...
I could go outside and scream to the top of my lungs for 6 days
and no one other than my family would hear me...
I know haha

I also only have dial up internet available to me, so that hinders a lot!

Also I help take care of my parents...
So I cant very well move off...

What I am asking is simply this...

Do any of you have any ideas on how I can make some money from home.
I don't care if its 25 extra dollars a month
25 dollars to me is like 200 to most people...
Of course the more I could make the better...

But i am not gonna be picky on the amount


In fairness I do not starve, and I get the basics taken care of...

But It would be nice to have a few dollars in the wallet...

Now I am willing to work to make this money...

I tried ebay, but not much luck

So any ideas?

Thanks in advance

Hey man, you should get involved with stocks dude, that'll definitely work out.

Doesn't sound to me like you need to make "money", learn to live off the land. Learn to hunt and fish and use the basic materials around you to continue your life style.


If you do not want to continue the lifestyle you are currently in then MOVE, go get an education that will help you provide for your family at a "elevated" level.

Living off the land is nothing to be ashamed of in fact it just the opposite in my opinion. Look up the survival boards here on ATS and YouTube, there are some great videos for woodcraft on there.

Thanks for the advice.

But I do already live off the land.

Hell If I knew what would sell I would sell stuff from the land.

Oh and things like ginseng and other herbs (legal) you can sell...
My father beats me to them haha

But If I want a pizza its an act of congress for me lol

thats what I am trying to prevent lol

I would move, but I cannot due to my parents, they require me to take care of them

To start with, stop spending.

Do you own a TV. Sell it, you don't need it. Do you eat out, don't, grow your own. Do you smoke or drink? You don't need those either. How many cars you own? You gamble? Do you buy junk food? etc etc etc etc etc.

I could come to your house and save you so much that you'd be amazed. But few would do what it takes to begin a lifestyle of saving.

Can you upskill?

Those who don't save and wont upskill are the poor. It's not the rich folks fault, it's theirs

Explanation: S&F!

Personal Disclosure: I fully recommend looking at all of OL's post's to this thread ...

White Americans are now branching into "migrant/immigrant jobs" and I AM ONE OF THEM! (by bluestar.ranch posted on 2-11-2010 @ 07:37 AM) [ATS]

I am looking at the wiki to help further with suggestions more suitable to your region and your specific demographic and job requirement specifications.

I try to be nice to people when I post...

I know you got the best of intentions...

But your post is not the lest bit useful to me...

I don't wanna argue with you cos you did infact try to help me.

But I am not selling what little I do have, what took me a long time to earn.

I was in your shoes at one time in my life.
Here is my story.
I was brought to Iowa in my teens to a farm in the middle of no where.
My only thought was to get out of there as fast as I could.
I graduated from highschool ,worked the summer and went to college.I was 17.
That lasted 6 months due to immaturity and partying.
Tried to move back hove,but my parents would only allow me to do so for 2 months.
Found a job 30 miles away at Hardees doing maintenance and everything else.
Got my butt in gear,applied at another college,got student loans and grants.
Got my associate degree in electronics.I was 22 years old then.
Work at Chuckie cheeses as their tech.
Decided enough with Iowa,I was moving back to South Carolina.
I did,and got a job with an elevator company my dad worked for.
24 years later,I am unemployed .
It's tough out there dude,you have to leave what you got and adapt.
Get a plan,and move forward.
First step,any kind of work to get money to get a car.

you can make an extra few bucks taking online surveys....you have to give out all your info though..address etc.

www.surveysay.com...

i was going to do it, but i'm not sure if they sell your info and i don't want a million pounds of junk mail. It would make good kindling though

good luck

Explanation: I don't know how much land your parents own but IF they have 100 acres free then here is what OL recommends...

Set up a paint ball camp and an archery range and make fake deer, elk and turkey targets.

Get the money and the customers to come to you!

Personal Disclosure: There is a mega amount of other reasons I suggest this but I will wait and see if it is feisable 1st. Is this a possibility?

If you are already living of the land and as a consequence, hunting these animals for food ... what do you do with the deer hides???
Do you know how to tan hides? Do you know how to do any leatherwork?

Edit: If yes on the leather work ... then make DEER LEATHER GUITAR STRAPS!!!


Oh and learn how to make guitars out of local wood supplies. My dad makes his own guitars now and he has even made a banjo


edit on 2-10-2011 by OmegaLogos because: Edited to add the edit and focus in on the type of job as a muso that EvolEric would possibly like to do.

I don't know whether this will help at all with dial-up, but if not maybe it will be helpful for someone who might read the thread for suggestions...

sites like fiverr

microjobs

Those articles are optimized for search traffic. There's some good info, although it might read kinda weird.

I haven't tried Fiverr yet, but a friend of mine told me he makes an extra $100 or so from it monthly. I've made some decent money through Elance. You don't have to pay anything to try most of the microworking/freelancing sites.

We actually only own a small plot of land about a acre...

The surrounding land belongs to one person, who is very nice to us and allows us to freely come and go on their land and hunt... etc

But I wouldnt imagine I could do this.

Tanning, I dont know where to begin, lol
But I do like the "idea" of it

I like the "rough and raw" types of work, the back to basics

I'm gonna go search for a "Idiots guide to leather working" and try guitar strap making
