What can you do when you have no money, work (real estate, not sales side)?
Being partially self employed at the whim of clients and struggling to obtain a better license to move foreward in career(commercial appraiser trainee). Feeding a family of 5, 2 dogs, 2 rabbits. Cut expenses to the bones and looking at being out on the street in 30 days. As usual most will say go get a job. Here is your answer to that I have 2. Just no orders coming in on the residential and commercial side. One order for residential = 1 weeks pay for minimum wage. 1 Commercial job = 1 month minimum. So a part time job would be replaced rather eaisly. Over qualified for most jobs and most wont hire you because of that fact even for part time work. And yes I have applied. As far as public assistance Answer from the "You are not entitled because you are self employed". So I pay taxes for benefits I can't recieve. How do you like that? They take to give to people who dont want to work and can't give to the people who do want to work and can work and do work. I saw someone post similar question and everyone was GET A JOB!. Find out the circumstances first. Take all of your money out of your pocket out of your bank account and no access to it. Further place yourself at an age 40-50 ish and place yourself with out parents both dead and both grandparents gone and your an only child. Spouse has parents but have given all help they can. Then realize that you have not the funding to propel your vehicle to do work when you can and not being able to get public assistance for just a short get me over the hump and this plagues your credit so much you cannot get a loan to help out. All the while you have reduced expenses to Rent, 1 auto payment, utilities (electric), phone and internet (necessity for work sending orders electronically and using net based services for your work). Then pass your judgement. So What would and what could you do? Edit. #1 I hear what your saying cutting grass. (market cornered in maryland by day labor and most people do it themselves.) Pick up dead animals (covered by county employees.) I also have not been sitting around doing nothing. I have been applying but over qualified most cases even part time just to get by. It's beyond frustrating. As for the person who I came here to train under. He has been a godsend. He however cannot control the orders coming in. I may feel sorry for my self some but I know there are others worse off than I even though we will be out on the street within 30 days and no place to go and no assistance available because "your self employed". Options are nearly exhausted and funding gone. Not even child care available. Signed Hopeless in Maryland. Thank you for the input. It is much appreciated.
