Hey, I know this isn't the appropriate place, but I barely use this site and when I do it's leftypol. I'm unemployed, even unemployable, while I had already accepted living a life of poverty I think I should use the opportunities I have, which as of right now are that I have a lot of free time and space, specifically a unused backyard, both a garage and the outdoors almost abandoned full of trash and wild plants, it's a literal waste, people could use it productively! Which is what I intend to do.

I'd like some ideias to make some money with it (like a petit bourgeois) I've thought about growing stuff, plants or fish/octopus etc and sell, but I got 0 experience (but time to learn), and I just don't know if it's even profitable because big companies are better equipped for this, I don't even expect making a lot of money, but just knowing I wouldn't lose any, even a few hundred € per year would be worth it.

Weed illegal here btw. There could be some legal drugs that I could grow/make (maybe some type of shrooms?) but I have no idea who'd want to buy that, irl I don't know anyone interested in such things.

Any ideias?

I think your best bet is unfortunately whatever shit-tier job you can find. Homelessness is rough.

If you are a good employee for a bit, you can eventually make manager and then leverage that promotion as entry into a less shit-eating industry.

Your not going to be able to set up an inexpensive, profitable fish farm in your garage. That takes expertise, capital, and customers.

Why can't you just apply to a no effort night time job like a security guard or janitor? Unless your attractive and find a sugar daddy or come up with an amazing idea and have the skills to put it into motion, there's nothing you can do to make money without having some sort of minimal hour shitty job.

As someone with experience with amateur aquariums (largest I've had is 50 gallon) they can be fucking hard to maintain, and any fish that are going to be profitable you'll need a shit ton of them and have a couple extra tanks for isolation (pregnant fish, new born frys, sick fish quarantine, etc.). Most of the big money is in salt water, which are even worse to take care of than tropical. The only thing I could think of is to breed some very specific and pretty Bettas, but that would probably take years of research to understand the genetics behind their traits and then selecting the right breeders and then breeding dozens of generations. Aquariums are not a get rich quick scheme, and like any other hobby the only way to make money is to out autist the autists. You won't have soccer moms come to your garage and drop $500 on low quality cichlids, you'll get neck beards who've dedicated tens of thousands of dollars to the hobby and will know their shit. I wouldn't even bother.

I'm in the same spot as him but even worse off. I have some of the worst social skills you will ever see in your life. I genuinely don't think I could hold down any kind of job that involves speaking to people. I also was unschooled so I don't have a ged or any kind of skills.

Need more context - I'm not sure I fully understand your situation.

You say you're unemployable - why? What makes you think that?

I have pretty bad self-esteem and a damaged resume, but I happen to know that the job market here is currently good enough that if I wanted I could get a job… even when this is one of the shittier big cities for it.

What are you starting with (money-wise) that you would be able to raise octopi?

Imo you'd be better off starting with plants rather than animals. In particular, herbs like horehound could be lucrative - stuff that ends up selling at co-ops. But tomatoes or something could also work. You could also do baked goods - that's a fun one.

But also (and again depending on how much you're starting with) you could invest. Lumpen investors are a real thing - obviously at low level it comes with risks, but educate yourself and you can do alright.

You could also rent the garage out to bands depending where you are and what the acoustics are like. Rehearsal space is often needed.

You could should amateur porn. That's not so bad.

Unemployable because I'm in my mid 20's, no job experience (I've tried a few jobs but quit days after it started) no univeristy degree etc, I'd only be accepted in shit jobs I'd rather kill myself such as call centres.

I got 300€, could go to 1000€ if I sell lot my shit.

I don't want to invest, when I was 18 I imidiatly started gambling lost almost all the money my family and I saved in my youth, few years ago I did find a way to make money online but after making a couple thousand they limited my account, you can't beat the system.

Don't want to rent the space, I live with my parents, all it's tehcnically their choice, while they'd probably let me use their space for, renting out is a different thing.

I had read octopi consumption was raising, and it's quite profitable, and that farming was really hard but starting to get feasible (since 2013 they've been studying ways to make octopi have better survival rates in their youth), but idk if it's just for professionals and people with tons of resources, just seemed cool.There's a youtuber called ants canada, he's kinda obnoxious, but he does have an interesting hobby, but he makes his money from the youtube videos, also I'd never have ants!

how?

Also, to answer your initial question, do you have car in your disposal? If so, what kind of car? Can you move some heavy stuff around?

If you refuse to work and produce stuff, the only thing left for you is selling stuff. You need to find some way to get something free/cheap, and sell it with profit.

I forgot the specific name for it, was finding many different betting houses, use software that would look for different values where you could sell in one house for more what you could buy in a different one. You'd make 2%~5% per bet. I made bets with bet365 + a different one each time (Pinnacle, betfair, william hill etc) but bet365 limited my account to 5€ bet's making it not worth it, couldn't find consistent betting houses other than bet365, almost all involved it, so I dropped it, maybe I should take a look again just to see how things changed, but iirc in my country betting became illegal, I can't even enter bet365 site now. There's proxies but considering they require ID it can bring problems, so not even worth bothering with that.

Oh I remember, was called surebets.

Don't have a car, but can borrow one if it's not for consistent use.

When I was in highschool, I earned a couple hundred EUR by reselling school books. I was able to easily buy couple of them for about 10 EUR from graduates, and sell them for 20-25 to school attendees, using on-line basars. You can try it, or something similar. What comes to my mind is that you can offer "free liquidation" of furniture and home appliances, take them, fix them and then resell. Most likely by setting up some posters in town neighbourhoods, bus stops and stuff. This will most likely not earn you enough money to live off, but potentially generate a few hundred EUR for month.

But it's not petit-bourg; if OP wants to run a personal self-employed business out of his house, in Marxist terms this is called "cottage industry", and it was the main mode of production in feudal economies.

OP if worse comes to worst, you should consider buying a cheap, shitty BB gun, either remove the orange tip or paint it black, and start reading illegalist theory. You know what to do.

Quit days after?

Ffs.

M8, that's not unemployable. I've been fired and I could get a job now that unemployment's even lower. And I don't have a degree either. If you're making a decision to avoid work because of how worthless the available jobs are that's one thing - but don't call yourself unemployable.

>I got 300€, could go to 1000€ if I sell lot my shit.

And how much will that get you?

>I don't want to invest, when I was 18 I imidiatly started gambling lost almost all the money my family and I saved in my youth,

Ok, no, that's not how you invest. You have to educate yourself first. Don't make high-risk investments unless you can afford it. You can't just jump in.

>I had read octopi consumption was raising, and it's quite profitable, and that farming was really hard but starting to get feasible (since 2013 they've been studying ways to make octopi have better survival rates in their youth), but idk if it's just for professionals and people with tons of resources, just seemed cool.

Yeah, I'm gonna guess that that would be difficult. I haven't researched it, though, so please don't take my word for it. Ask some people who do it (email is a start) about the details and if you can help them with it in any way.

Do not be a janitor at night. As help to a friend I started working at a mall on 3rd shift cleaning it up. It will get to you so fast you'll want to kill yourself after a week. It is so disgustingly Sisyphean. My colleagues were great, I was treated well (still exploited obviously), and it was an "easy job" but it was taxing mentally. I quit after a month and now I'm sitting on $1100 (after upgrading my computer a bit) unsure of what to do with it.

I want some bees.

But seriously, it's mentally grating to be a janitor. Especially at a shitty mall where the power is on 24/7, there's no recycling, you pick up the same messes every single day, etc. I was told I couldn't recycle on company time because the company itself didn't want it done and I was told I could be fired for it. That was kind of the last nail in the coffin for me, too. As someone that really cares about the environment and went to school for environmental science it killed me. The "RECYCLE" signs on the trash bins are lies too, and that really bothered me.

I still bring my colleagues food I cook sometimes, though.
