Okay, my first thread...
I need some money, not much. I know I cannot work or rather regular work doesn't suit me. I'm not particularly skilled in anything and that makes things even more difficult.
I have no social connections and so asking for cash-in-hand work is likely out of the question. I'm only receiving JSA and would have to starve without it. A few months ago my rent had increased and my computer broke down and so took measures to account for these, and the result is not much money left. I'm in a better position than most since I only eat one male a day on most days, and do intermitten fasting, and that saves some money.
So I was thinking about dog walking because I like dogs and I could charge £3 per hour and make a few quid. A lot of people have dogs in Wigan, but I see a lot of dogs getting walked too.
My first hurdle is getting the word out. I need a business card but I am told that they can get expensive.
Nothing is certain in life so I've given up seeking certainty. Everything is a wild stab in the dark, like throwing a dice and seeing if you'll get a six.
But why am I asking you this? Why do I need external validation? I am not sure. Perhaps there is a part of me that still clings to the illusion that people can help?
Yeah... I think the title of your thread goes for most of us. Everyone on earth, quite probably, would like to be able to do what they want through being - or to make them - financially independent. It…
I appreciate your advice.
If you're fit, what about asking a local small builder if he needs any labour? They normally pay cash with no questions but will work you hard for your money.
Is it worth doing some quick practical…
I find Vistaprint is easiest way to get a business card. You’re looking at about £30 ish.
I might start with an A4 advert first; just give one to the petstore to put in their shop window.
