    Honestly dude, the best thing you can do is check out the making money section of the forum. There are tons of ways to make money there. As for your specific skill set, I would recommend putting up fiver gigs with your related artistic skills. A lot of people buy the strange things on fiver. So maybe do something like make a customized birthday card for $5 or something like that. Those kinds of things usually sell in droves because they are a great way to give someone a cheap personalized gift. Just try stuff out. If it deosnt work, you can always try something else. Best of luck buddy :D

    Quick list of things you can do on fiverr.

    website mockups
    personalized gifts
    setup adwords accounts
    a guide to being a great friend

    little things like that that dont take too much time or things that you can make a template of and just do minimal customization on.

    Good luck man :D

    Why were you neg repped?

    Anyway, I'm on a journey myself bro. My specialty is writing content...drawing & graphics design skills are abysmal. :D

    I'm wishing you the best in your journey. It's gonna be a long and bumpy road but hopefully we both get where we want to be.

    Here's what I did when I didn't have any start up money. I went on fiverr and tried EVERYTHING. I am in no way promoting fiverr because I think their support is terrible. But it's the easiest way for a noob to make money. Anyway in about a month I saved up enough for bluehost and then I got cracking on a niche site. I'm not making tons from that but if you keep scaling you will eventually make a decent income.

    Always remember: People shouldn't go into business in debt.

    I wouldnt necessarily spam fiverr. Idk how their ban system works (or if they even have one). But I would definitely start there. It has a huge amount of traffic. Idk if you know, but there is also tenerr and twentierr. Idk how they are spelled, but those other two sites exist. There are also a ton of other sites that do stuff like fiverr. You can try those as well. Just post what you know you can do.

    Wow, the guy was apologizing in an earlier post. Hahaha. Probably not him.

    OP specified he messed up a bit by posting on the wrong forum.

    To the OP - yeah, why not give Fiverr a shot? Especially now that they have increased their $5-limit to $500 (or so I read). Start with something like "eBook covers for 5 Bucks".
