    Everyone has skills, it's just a matter of identifying them.

    First off, the whole "amazing car" thing, you need to scrap. You should be doing this because you "want to live more comfortable".

    Something you can do right now which I have done in the past for quick money is, go to www.seoclerk.com and find a person who does cheap logo design (usually you can find people who design amazing logos for $5 - $10.)

    Once you find a good person, go to your local listing sites for example, GUMTREE (that's what I use in Australia).

    Post an ad saying you will provide cheap business logos etc, since you're only paying $10 max for a logo from seo clerk, you can charge $100+ on your ad listing. It's pretty much just outsourcing the logo for cheap and keeping the profit :)

    Sounds like you might not be cut out for internet marketing. Not knowing how to do something should be seen as an opportunity. It's an opportunity to learn and grow, not something to wallow in.

    Internet Marketers work for themselves for the most part, if you have to ask how to do something rather than putting in the hours and going through the trial and error of figuring it out yourself, you've already set yourself up for failure and disappointment.

    Learn, read, watch, and experiment. Nobody will hold your hand and if they do they're probably going to charge you for it.

    Also scrap the idea of getting a nice car for now, you need to set realistic goals that you can reach within reasonable time frames.

    If you weren't doing IM, and you failed school so you probably didn't do you homework and study and you have no skills so you weren't learning anything.

    What were you doing?

    What do you do in your spare time? . Play piano? Cool become a piano instructor. Play games? Cool start making videos or botting in game currency and selling it. Etc etc.

    IM is Internet Marketing.

    In regard to the post, it's your mindset that is holding you back brother. Telling yourself that you are worthless at everything is the exact reason that you will be. No one came out of the womb with a skill. They had to learn it. Learn a skill, teach yourself the skill, and then apply it. Graphic Design, Copywriting, Content Writing, social media marketing, etc. are all skills that can be learned if you are willing to put the time in.

    You're just 19. Failed college? I know people aged 39 who are enrolled in universities learning something they always wanted to learn but couldn't because of their circumstances.

    If you have started to learn to quit, you'll end up nowhere. Try learning something you always wanted for a change and maybe you can market your skills in that field.

    If it is just about making an earning, try taking a look at the journey section and pick up the one that suits your needs and add your variations to it.

    You have a capital that many of us don't have. You have "nothing to lose" and an open mind. This worth so much.
