Thread: How do people do it?

  1. #25
    I think the key thing find your niche what do you want to do?
    Yeah we would all love to sell fresh air to people via the click of an online button
    and sit back watching the money roll in
    But that ain't gonna happen.
    So you you need to decide what it is you want to do?
    If you dont know then figure that one out
    are your outdoorsy? indoorsy?
    are you hands on or theory
    can you sell sand to the Arabs with your gift of gab
    or are you better hiding behind your product or service
    Can you teach a skill?#is there a skill you have to teach?
    Will it be a service? or product?
    local or global?
    but the BIGGEST Question of all is WHAT YOU PASSIONATE ABOUT?
    The other big one is
    What problem is your service product going to solve?
    I do most of my own stunts because the stunt guys show me how.

    "Those, who don't give a fuck are rewarded in life". I've decided to live by it, and it works!
    I love that quote 😊

    I feel your pain mate, in a job your not keen on, however I find it's the people I work with. Think of the bigger picture. One thing that's helped me is writing a journal or diary. Get it all out, and as the months go by, look back on old entrys to track progress.

    Haha thankyou. I could write you a book but I've had an operation and been getting help for the mental health side of life. But things are moving forward I think. Missed you all I have. Hope everyone is well.

    I don't know you but if you have been needing help with the mental health issues then big respect from me because that's tough shit to deal with and not let it slide. What part of Wales to you inhabit?

    I'm from Pontypool. Welcome to come for a brew sometime if you want and chat about stuff.

    Petew.......It sounds like you are fucked......Who knows how people do it......There are zero convincing explanations in the replies so far....

    What's your analytical take on the issue?

    Bankruptcy and inflation of property values were previously available options but since the elders have become demented and paranoid about their longevity everyone else is forced to suffer far stricter rules than experienced by them in order to keep them comfortable.....

    You should probably be angry about that but I suspect you are an exemplary individual suffering the effects of an economy that wants to make its slaves delusional mentalists.

    You've been fucked over and it will not stop.

    Hey Darrren, nice to see you back. Hope your life is going well.
    If men bore wings and had black feathers, few would be intelligent enough to be crows.

    It won't come....The elders are sucking up every available resource and will spare no person in their pursuit of self interest.....And by the time the sucked on reach elder status euthanasia will likely be the expected option and written into economic policy.

    Paying it forward has become topsy turvy.

    The UK cannot support the health and care needs of elders without robbing younger generations and younger generations when actualised into parliamentarians will not tolerate this continual theft.

    But....

    Having spent time re-evaluating my situation, money, wants, needs etc then i have come to the conclusion that i cant beat the system.

    I can however put two fingers up to said system and say "Fuck you"

    So although i am paying off debts and i cant just go out and buy a van and sod off, i can start to put ideas and events in motion.

    By careful spending and looking forward i think it can be done.

    Petew do you have the space to store a van and work on it?

    You might find it helpful to get something cheap if it comes up. And work on it slowly.

    It may give you that light at the end of the tunnel if you feel your actively preparing for when the time is right.

    I picked up my transit for 300. Admittedly its cost more over the months but you can really get a lot done cheaply if you scout out the right materials.

    No space at the moment and as yet can not afford one either.
