    I give up looking for a job.

    As some of you know, I moved to a new city last year after losing my cushy high paying job and now I have zero, zilch, goose egg to my name, living in parents house at 30 years old with no real friends yet.

    I have applied. And applied. And APPLIED!! To jobs ranging from high paying finance to min. Wage retail. I don't qualify for unemployment so I have zero income, eating meagerly (which isn't helping with my gaining goals), and feeling very isolated and lonely because of all of these circumstances.

    Oh, and the air force reserves wont accept me because of my outstanding student loan debt in collections. icon_evil.gif

    It's really starting to get on my nerves.

    So now I'm thinking about starting some sort of online business and getting my life back in my control. Surely there is a way to make it out there.
    Has anybody had success with that who could offer me some advice? All of this effort I am putting into looking for work could be put into something that will actually benefit me.

    And no, whoring is not an option, I don't care how suggestive my last post was :p

    Thanks RJ!

    I've tried to make money online myself but I could never get it to work since I pretty much needed thousands of dollars to start with. If you live in Sacramento then you can try looking on Craigslist for free stuff and then selling them right back on Craigslist or on ebay.

    There is also a book called Get Rich Click with all kinds of online money making ideas.

    What are your expectations in making the money online? How much are you expecting to get and how soon?

    Since you have zero income to invest with, you can try earning the money as an affiliate. You can make money through YouTube and also with a blog (get a free one with blogger).

    Do you have a business idea yet? If not, this is what you do:

    Don't think of anything business. Just ask yourself, "what am I passionate about?" Answer that genuinely. Then, go from there and see what you can take from that to start a business. If you find something you're truly passionate about, everything will come to you...plus, you'll love doing it.
