How to get money when you can't work?
Topic: How to write a blog for money
June 17, 2019 / By Constance Question:
I've applied for disability because I have chronic pain that has gotten so bad I am unable to work. But I can't figure out how to make money until I get approved (if I do). I am broke, I have no family to borrow money from, and I don't know what to do.
Does anyone know of anything or any resources for me? I live in Arkansas.
By the way, I can NOT afford electricity or internet. I live with my mother, who is on disability, and she's out of money right now because she doesn't get that much. She pays the electricity (barely), I get the internet by a remote from my aunt, who lives in the other part of the house, and the computer belongs to my brother, who is 19, in college & works part time. I own nothing. No car, no computer, no house. Nothing is mine. I WAS helping out by paying the water bill and helping with food and gas, but obviously I can't do that with zero money. None of this is my fault. I've worked hard, and I've tried, but this is my life (for now).

try some online options may not be huge but enough to keep u interested..
For outsourced freelance sort of work, mturks and domystuff are good options.
Also there are sites that pay you to do specific tasks like posting something on a forum or writing comments on some blogs, finding a logo or pic for a particular brand and uploading on some site... or similar stuff, and there are amount specified for each tasks.
tasks are easy, small and simple but the payout is not very huge per task, so you might have to perform multiple tasks to get some substantial income.
Here is how they work:
1. Register with the offered sites. free of cost
2. search for opportunities offered
3. bid for offer of your interest with suitable amount.
4. once your bid is approved you'll get the details of the work and how to submit it once completed.
5. complete the work and submit for approval
6. once approved, you receive your payment.

Since you're 15 years historic (how did I recognize that?), for those who make investments that $a thousand right into a progress mutual fund (some thing just like the Muhlenkamp Fund, MUHX), it's going to most probably earn 14-15% a yr over the long term, so for those who forgo to any extent further "eletronics" (now not certain what they're, LOL!) your $a thousand might readily develop, all on its possess, to be $a million,000,000 by the point you're sixty, with out you doing ANYTHING. Please print this reply out and put it aside. Maybe you're going to come throughout it while you're 60, broke, hating your task and surrounded by means of historic garments!

You can earn money maybe by making things if you are artistic. You can sell your little crafts to make money or you could always do the old fashion way-> selling lemonade. If you are looking for more money than those may offer, if you have any clothing or toys or valuables that you do not use/want anymore, i would suggest selling them at a yard sale or something. Hope i helped! And i hope you get approved.

My knowledge of this stuff is abstract - from textbooks and magazines and such - rather than practical - 'cause I have no money to invest. But this is what I do know: Warren Buffet is buying stocks right now. Probably commodities, too. This is his investment advice, paraphrased: "When everyone else is afraid, buy. When everyone else is buying, be afraid." Because most people tend to buy high and sell low, which is a horrid investment strategy.
Normally I like the idea of revenue-producing investments (such as bonds, preferred stock, windmills even, stuff like that). But since the price of stocks and commodities is so low right now, it may be a good time to invest in things like that, that yield capital gains (i.e. they make money only when you sell them). Like, the price of General Electric common stock is incredibly low right now. Assuming that GE survives the economic crisis, one day the price will rebound. If you bought it at a low price, then you make a lot of money on that future date.
This approach *does* carry risk. But high risks tend to yield high payoffs (or losses); low risks, low payoffs (or losses). That's a basic rule of investment. Your investment strategy should be a ratio of high risk, medium risk, and low risk. That ratio should depend on your age, especially if you are saving for retirement. If you're in your twenties, your portfolio should have a greater percentage of high-risk investments. If you're in your fifties, high-risk should be a small percentage of your portfolio. The logic behind this is that young people can lose more and still rebound, but yet have the potential for greater gains while they're not making as much money at their jobs.
Assuming that you're on the young side, you might want to look at small cap mutual funds - they are higher-risk funds that invest in new small and medium-sized companies. If you want to be more conservative with your investments, look at large cap funds - I think they may be a better idea anyway right now due to the low stock prices of large, old companies (such as GE). Since mutual funds are just a way to invest in stock with the intermediary of an investment banker, it carries greater ease.
Mutual funds do tie up your money, however. I'm not sure if you have to pay taxes on their gains each year or not. And many mutual funds have minimum investments - from $200 to $20,000. Also, I don't think it's a good idea to tie up ALL your money in ONE mutual fund. You may even want to try to find one small cap and one large cap with low entrance minimums.
Also, if you're not a homeowner and you don't have to be highly mobile for your career, it's an excellent time to invest in real estate. It's a real buyer's market out there.
