I started with a criminal record for petty narcotics pos and a 'computer tresspassing' record guaranteeing me unemployment almost everywhere except manual labor. I was also living in a SRO in the worst area you can ever imagine, had no money, huge debt and couldn't even finish university so washed out in the second year due to poverty.


STEP 1 - GET A FUCKING JOB

Any job will do. Some shitty manual labor position is great because then you also get some activity in so you aren't a fat bastard.

Easy jobs to get are landscaping (usually pays under the table cash), construction clean up, warehouse, or whatever you can find on your local Craigslist 'gigs' section. Alternatively there's the dreaded nightshift tech support. Look around for these on CL, or move to somewhere in your country where the jobs are. In Canada this means terribad mining and oilfiend work but it pays like $40/hr and there's nothing else to do up there, perfect for studying.

For me, I got a job at the post office and delivered mail, which meant I got off early and had lot's of time for school. Also consider institutions that will pay you to learn a trade, such as telephone companies and whatever else.

STEP 2 - START SAVING MONEY

Congratulations you poor bastards have earned your own board. Don't fuck it up. Any relevant rules will be created/added to this post when the time comes, but for the meantime try to keep it SFW.

Go Wild

Jesus Christ I'm useless; I should have specified that this board is for poor niggers to share money saving tips/vouchers and whatever.

I made a thread here a while ago about writings blog for money. I've since stopped doing it for the most part because I have found a more lucrative field (writing erotica).
Nonetheless, this place has been dead a while.

Does anyone remember those coupons that you could print and get free stuff with?
Also cinder blocks and two by fours are all ya need for furniture!

Also churches will give you stuff

They work fine.
I've made one before and it worked but I don't have the How To Make Coupons guide anymore due to a computer crash. So if anyone has it please post.

I work 46 hours a week on a construction site and make 400$ a week

My friend works three hours a week and makes 4000$ selling drugs.
I just can't justify working so hard any more, I get that there are risks but Jesus Christ the money.

What should I do Jew

Give a numerical value to the disutility you would get from getting busted. Then find out how to calculate risks and decide whether you are okay with the results of the calculation.

I'm putting this in thrifty living because it would save me a lot of the problems caused by under-eating. I simply don't have the appetite others do.

What is the most calorie-dense food out there? Like preferably 500+ in just a tiny teaspoon of solid or liquid? Does any such thing exist?

I guess I would be saving money in the long run because then I don't suffer the consequences of under-eating.

Thank you.

while humans run on calories, you also need vitamins and protein

this shit is basic biology

for example one guy living in korea -artosis the sc2 caster- liven on ramen and eggs, period. that's all he could afford for a while

while he survived he became sickly and malnourished

Going to donate jizz for money. Quite good money, actually.

One problem. I have to meet the kid in 18 years if they want to.

Still worth it? What are the general risks of doing this?

Would really appreciate some advice here.

Let's talk about ways to make cash online, it can really help out and once you get efficient with it and have a good group then you're golden.

I won't lie, I'd like to find a person or two from this board to be in a new group. You wouldn't believe how fast and simple things get when you get everyone working together well and can make the money on nearly autopilot, depending on what method you are using. Also tips and resources are always good.

So what you're saying is you don't get paid for blogging.

so you're talking about adsense? I heard it's a bitch, almost a god damn fulltime job just to get a website accepted by those fucks, let alone not get immediately banned for trying to trade clicks with other people

Not anymore, no. Like I'd said in a previous post, the company I dealt with that DID pay me to blog (Blogsvertise for any that don't mind risking things by dealing with them) randomly stopped paying me and it happened to a fellow blogger as well, so it wasn't just me, and since that was my sole source of income from the blog I let it go once that dried out. I still HAVE the blog, but I use it for other things and work on it when I have downtime, so if enough people wanted to then I could start posting again and do the whole thing, but the topic I chose isn't one that gets organic traffic, so there's no point in me spending time working on it for others, I instead have been using it to learn about php and wordpress and html5 so I can add those skills to my freelance profiles.

>>2257
Ehhhhh, if you ask me it's not really worth it to use as a main source of income when you're part of a blog group due to the inscrutable methods that G uses as well as their amorphous definitions of 'fraud'. A group of bloggers that visit each others blogs is certainly not fraud, but sometimes if it gets too big then they bring the hammer down evilly for no given reason, and that hurts. I don't recall if I said it in this thread but the very first time I made money blogging it was through them, 80$ that went down the drain when they gave my account the Rodney King treatment, so I'm pretty wary of them. They are far from the only option though.

Is it possible to make a living only doing freelance jobs online? Would people hire me even though I have no degree or previous experience? I wish I could work exclusively online so I could travel all the time without problems.

Care to share more details? What kind of work do you do?


>>
Modern Mom 14/08/12(Tue)00:13 No. 2259 ID: 948038

depends, where do you live?

I for example could probably make a living just from working mturk type stuff but the shithole I live in isnt accepted by mturk, nor are many freelancing sites

I'm working fulltime as a translator and in college was interested in checking the freelance "market" if you can call it that, endless lists of people willing to bid lower to get any sort of work of litterally any kind

if I will ever try freelancing and have real opportunity and real clients all i can think of is charging real prices for real quality services, rather than being an average bid in a sea of ever lower and ridiculous bids

if you live in the us I'm pretty sure you're screwed

Just writing so far, mostly erotica because I have a talent there it seems, probably from all the years of writing about it and never doing it lol

There's a ton of lower grade work, writing filler articles for 0.01 per word, reviewing porn sites/videos and whatnot, that's just in the writing section. It's NOT at all steady of course, I think it's important for anyone wanting to get into it to realize that you HAVE to keep yourself motivated and be constantly, eternally refreshing and checking new jobs that come in. If there are more than 8 or 9 bids on certain jobs I don't even expect to get them, clients are just people and are often lazy.

There are a lot of random one off jobs too, so just stay vigilant, it's like a quest board in a very un-fun rougelike.

I got paid like 20$ a few months ago to write an escorts profile.

Ok, I have a bit of an unusual problem.

My grandmother died a year ago and left behind a fuckload of shitty furniture. I want to help my parents sell it because they effectively became poorfags sponsoring my education.

Now, this would usually be no problem except the fact that they live in a shitty 2nd world Eastern European country, and in a small(15k residents) town no less. A garage sale, or a Craigslist ad or really anything of the sort is not an option here.

So what the fuck do I do? I doubt that anyone here has experience with this kind of issue, so maybe just help me brainstrom one up? I really want to help my old folks, but can't do so financially because of being stuck in the post-bachelors limbo.

Modern Mom 14/08/10(Sun)21:40 No. 2251 ID: 9c87c5

Post an ad at some public place, like they did in the old days.

Then you can bring the furniture around in your horse-drawn carriage you gypsy fuck.

Thread for making money during the summer time when we all have the most freetime.

Me personally I have about $5k cash I'm planning on using to make more and looking for some ideas on how to do so. Might be helpful for others aswell.

Statistically, it's abnormal, yes. People should stop treating "abnormal" as carrying only negative connotations.

My point was that it was an example of something that a straight person wouldn't mind doing and still consider themselves straight. That's all I meant but the question remains
