I need to get a little money to do what I want in life.

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?

  • You need an artwork first. Some kind of image and business name. 

    Or you could just have a personal details card - then you can use it for anything. 

    Making cash online is great fun. It’s like fishing - you set your line and wait for a bite :) 

    I can help you with a design for a card if you like? 

    One way I make money is as an airbrush artist doing small custom works that customers send to me from around the world. 

    I think you coud build a small customer base by finding online groups or forums for dog lovers. 

    I would recommend avoiding facebook but use stuff like instagram or twitter.
