Income Ideas

I am in a situation and I need some ideas on how I can overcome this problem. I need to earn approximately $15,000. Betsy and I have worked our butts off over that last few years paying off debt. We have been debt free for a while now and really do not want to ever return to that life style again. However, there is something that has come up that I completely overlooked and honestly I ignored for years because it was my son's responsibility to take care of. It's related to student loans that I took out for him when he started college. I have the money but for the life of me I don't want to spend it on those loans. I have to get this resolved for myself before it becomes a real issue. So, as I stated I need ideas about how I can earn $15,000. The obvious answer is get a job. However, that is a less than desirable solution. But, I will if I have to. I do computer consulting for a few businesses around town and will probably round up a bit more business for that. My trading isn't to the point where I can make this money through that effort. So, I'm asking for input from all of you.

I feel a bit uncomfortable with even writing this for semi-public reading but figured I would give it a shot.

Thank you all for your input.

Mike

Thanks Cory...Have you used that site or know someone who has? I feel a bit weird about asking for money like that. I'm conditioned to work for it as opposed to accepting donations like that.

You can browse the "For Hire" forum on futures.io (formerly BMT) and knock out some of those jobs probably, given your C# Ninja skills. It won't be 15k but it's a start.

Also, since you are home all day trading (presumably) check out this site:

Dog Boarding Just Got Awesome! | DogVacay

I used them for my vacation. I ended up spending $2000 to have three dogs watched for three weeks. So, in other words, it is very lucrative for the dog watcher...

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

First, congratulations on being (nearly ) debt free. That is huge!

If you have the money but just don't want to spend it in one lump sum, what is the possibility of your son sharing payment of the debt, assuming he sees value in what you provided him and is able?

And, since you want to take care of this as soon as possible, the logical path, in my opinion, is to do is more consulting since you have a client base and references. It takes time and money to start a new business.

Good luck Mike.

My son is making contribution and in fact as far as he knows he is making ALL the payments. I just see that I need to get out from under this so I can rest easy at night. If I can get it paid off then maybe I'll forgive some of it for him or maybe not and make him continue paying me. Bottom line is this situation effects the 4 boys more than I think I'm willing to watch. So, I will do whatever I do because of that and probably nothing more.

Yes more consulting is always an option and one that I will pursue. That is where I have the best opportunity.

I also found something else that may bring in a little extra. I was called out of the blue from a national marketing company that runs focus groups. I will be paid $150 for 2 hours worth of sitting there providing feedback. I registered in their database to be considered for future focus groups and also applied for a couple more that they are currently seeking people for.
