Pretty much what the tittle says...

I believe that a job like this usually pays minimum wages but i would love to have a job that can allow me to have some time in the computer; where i can do something like list building, writing, web design, market / social media advertise... anyone have any good ideas were i should start looking?

I'm a bartender / waiter... I make decent cash but that's about it...just feels like a waste of time because i'm not building anything there.

    Research is key, first a job will only pay you as much as the want and not for the work you put in. You better off starting you own business online working part time either doing affiliate marketing, Network marketing etc.

    Do you seriously believe any employer is going to allow you to use their resources to do anything other than work for them?

    The only occupation that will allow you to devote time to building your own business is being unemployed, which is what you'll undoubtedly become if you spend your employer's time on your own activities.

    Why do garden gnomes smell so bad?
    So that blind people can hate them as well.

      Thanks for the reply / reminder that i shouldn't be looking for such jobs. I remember seeing my friends back in hs just taking care of a cigar shop with nothing to do but to work the cash register and play on the ipad all day, so i thought there might be something similar out there.

    Try to find a job where you can just be present without actually doing anything, such as:

    Babysitter, House Minder, BT Customer Service Agent etc.

    True, you are building for your boss, the one that takes all of the risks, and probably borrows large sums from the bank.


    Online you don't have to take risks like you do with a bricks and mortar business, but you still do have to invest, learn, accept failure, pick yourself up and keep going.

    Bartender, eh, l would suggest going over to Fiverr, you could probably turn bartending into some gigs over there for some extra cash?

    I know that is similar to a job, but at least you are calling the shots.

    I am doing fonts myself, but that has taken me months of failure and about $650 up front, to get close to success.

    But at least if Creative Market runs my font past their list, occasionally l can easily make a full wage from it,and then some.

    And can still go away for a week, with this coughing up in the meantime.

    Toilet cleaning is another.


    I know clean out the toilets near the food court and be scarred for life, but from what l have seen from the cleaners in the giant shopping centre, (near where l live) most of the time they hang around the most quiet toilet block, and lock themselves into a cubicle to mess about with their iphones.


    Not the best place to smuggle a 13 inch Laptop into, and mess about working on your business for an hour or more, but doable.

      For most of my life I thought MP meant missing person.
