It's hasn't been the best time

June 14th, 2018 at 09:03 am

I have been away for a while and in the while things have been well not good I have had to take on a lot of debt and now my job does not have the best outlook since the company was taken over so I am not sure how this is all going to work out.

What I have been doing:

-Online jobs here and there so far have made $500.
-Lyft so far have made -150, as I am in the rental program and not able to drive as many hours as I should to make money.

I am going to try to use the money I make from Lyft which I have been trying to drive more to start up some online business or other passive income ideas. As I know I won't last for long and I need some kind of second income should my job end.

If anyone has any ideas let me know. For now I am just holding on my the skin of my teeth. I hate this I really do. I wake up in the morning hopeful and do my best but by the end of each day I am drained. Counting my pennies having to remind myself that I cannot spend money on things since there is nothing left. Cringing every time I put gas in the Lyft car or buy groceries because while I know I have to put gas in the car and I have to eat I can barely afford to do so.

The positive. I still have the house and I am able to pay the mortgage, if I play my cards right I'll be able to make 500 a week on Lyft which is enough to pay the mortgage just on that income and frees up my job money to save, invest and pay off debt.

    For longer term, I would ask if there are any job fairs going on in the area or professional conferences nearby. These could be a great way to met employers. Are you on any email listservs or online forums for your field? A lot of the ones I am post job announcements.

    For the short term, I would say Lyft seems to be working out for you. How about working a temporary part time job during holidays like Christmas?

    Also, there are also many survey sites. Here a some referrals. (I removed the dots from the urls so this would post.
