Looking forward, I will probably get back into the design services. I have thought more thoroughly this time and know I will focus on Logo/Brand identity design.

Don't stop at one income source. If you wanted to slave away to make just one job pay meet all your needs you'd get a 9-5, right? So don't. The more types of income you have the less stressful (even if you lose one job, you have others), more free and overall better off you will be.
First of all, get a truck or a cargo van. It's almost an essential if you don't want a 9-5 job.
Work a couple days at a regular job, like delivering pizzas or mc donalds, whatever, for taxes.
Then take your truck and make money with it. Post offers to haul things on craigslist, do scrapping, go to uship.com an dother sites like it and bid on hauling gigs.
Find anything renewable you can make/sell and sell it:
If you have your own property, grow food on it and sell everything extra at the flea market on weekends.
if you have a large property, build a simple barn and offer horse owners grazing time. If you have a barn or a garage, find a mechanic friend and let him fix vehicles out of your garage.
If you have any skills, sell them online. Advertise yourself as a handyman or whatever you can do, job by job based on your wants not someone's timeclock.
Buy chickens and rent out chickens to people(google rent a chicken if you think I'm joking). Sell eggs. Sell chickens or other small livestock such as goats.
Start a fish or shrimp farm.
Put solar panels on your property and sell power back to the city/county you live in.
There are a million DIY How-To videos on youtube. A "job" is literally anything that you do that is income, so if you're creative you can have as many or as few jobs as you need/want.
Just find something that you would enjoy, or at least not mind, doing and learn how to monetize it.

My company was earning a decent amount but the amount I could only pay myself was very little, basically almost 20k drop from previous job. They'd taken advantage of my naivety, work ethic and enthusiasm I showed for the job. I started to work out only a few months in that it was happening but after forking out the money to start the business and buy a van etc. (courier job) I thought I'd hold on and hopefully pull ahead.
I was offered this new beaut role which was pretty good I admit but it soon turned into a 11-13 hour day for which I was not paid for 4hrs and expected to be awake ready to go at roughly 3am for no pay.
Eventually I tucked my tail between my legs and got the fuck out of it, landed a warehouse job for 15k more and only 8hrs a day.
Although it was professionally and in terms of career wise the worst mistake of my life I did grow up personally and it taught me a lot of lessons very quickly. I went from a straight arrow nice guy etc. to an absolute fucking cunt and a jerk and now I'm not afraid to stand up for myself etc. that's the positive that came from it.

When i was young ( 25) my then wife & I where in a consignment shop that sold children's clothes. The women was unhappy in this business & we bought it for $3000.00 / Now, she owned no merchandise ( consignment) so we bought the name & lease. I stuck my mother-in-law in there because she was a pain in the ass & made about $12,000.00 a year. This was in 1984. We clothed our kids for free.
