Been thunkin bout ways to make money, lately. Was surprised how many easy ways that I came up with. One I'm pursuing right now is teaching English online. Don't need a teaching degree to teach foreigners. Just be a native English speaker, do a basic certificate in English Teaching for foreigners (my course was a 3-day weekend).

Can earn bout US$20/hr from home, online. Choose own hours. A number of companies will set everything up, including lessons. No lesson prep required. Most companies like tutors to have a bachelor's degree (any field), but some don't.
Only gamble 'a little' for fun, or, if 'you know' you can win.

That would be nice for some people. I've always wanted to learn another foreign language, but to be able to actually use it. What companies are you working with?

Added: I'm actually surprised they're paying so much. There are English speaking people all over the world, from lower wage countries. Are you talking about US$? We have 330 million idiots here, probably 250 million are capable of teaching English remotely.

That's the thing, ONM, it's just an easy way to make money that people don't realise is available to them. Yes, US$. Qkids; DaDaABC; OnlineEnglishTeaching; Cambly. These are four I've just sourced, and have just put an application into each. I don't yet know what to make of them, but I'll soon find out. I have two years English teaching experience from Vietnam. It's a pretty easy occupation. Money for jam!

They don't want lower wage countries, though. They want native English speakers from Australia, New Zealand, US, Canada and Britain. None of this Singapore or Philippines' English. It's just not the same, believe me.

If you rather work from home than find a ‘go to’ job, it sounds reasonable. I assume that this endeavor would not lower your disability payments?

It could lower my payments. The more I earn, the more my payments will reduce. If I just work, say 6hrs/wk, then my payments shouldn't reduce.

If you can do the long hours, truck or bus driving's a super job. Good regular income, out n about, different scene every minute, you're the boss, no real stress. You don't wanna be prone to tiredness, though.

The Wise Investor/Gambler

Another way to invest/gamble wisely is to only gamble with a certain % of one's capital. If gambling's your thing, and you think you can make a go of it, you can try out your strategy using 5 or 10% of your capital. If you lose this, you still retain 90 or 95%. You can then decide if you really want to try again, if you lose the first time.

Similarly with investing. You can invest 30% of your capital in 6 or more lots. By that I mean you evenly divide 30% of your capital into 6, or more, portions. That way, even if you lose 100% of each of your 6, or more, investments, you still have 70% of your remaining capital. And you'll probably think good and hard about your investing skills, before putting any more of your capital at risk.

For what its worth?....

If you have thirty percent of your capital split among six or more portions, what do you do with the remaining 70%?
