Look, I'm studying business right now and I can tell you that you can sell anything. Take, for instance, bottled water. Its all a matter of providing something that would be otherwise impossible or inconvenient to buy. Its a basic concept, but if you enjoy the outdoors, then collect and create things while you are out doing what you love.

If home depot can sell dirt for $30 a bag, then you too can make money by selling things that we otherwise consider either common or mundane. Its all about convenience. Just never sell a deal that you wouldn't take. Thats kin to stealing, and stealing's for the weak and the selfish. Best of luck to you, though.

Hi Charlotte,

I am 32 and I setup my home business when I was about your age. Working less IS an option, however, no work is not. I suggest a home business, however be aware that it can take a lot of work and motivation initially to get it off the ground.

So you don't want to work. Does that mean you want me to keep working so my taxes that I pay help pay your way through some sort of governmental program?

If you're capable of making things, Etsy is a fabulous website to sell handmade goods. Also, the Scoutie Girl website has a lot of information on making it on our own as a contractor.

Work is a drag- yes. But it's necessary, if you want things in exchange for money. Whatever you do, get behind it and DIG it. If you can't dig your job, quit and find one you can. I gave up a good position canvassing because I absolutely hated the work, and now am applying at hospitals to do desk work that I really enjoy.

It's tricky for sure. The problem is that many things I/we enjoy cost money.

For example - internet, computers, video games (for me at least) and so on.

Even heat and light, although I suppose they can be generated somehow.

For me, I'd quite like just to start my own business, then at least I'm in control of how I earn money and so on. It's not easy though ._.
