A family member of mine has severe COPD - a breathing problem. He can't do a "normal job" such as a clerk at a store because walking causes him to breath heavy to the point that he has to sit down for about 15-20 minutes to catch his breath from just walking up or down a normal flight of stairs, such as walking to the second floor of your house from the first floor. Now, I've tried to get him to do telephone marketing at a local company, but he can't do that, claims it's too hard on his breathing. I've tried to teach him CPA / IM, but he can't grasp the concept of it all. Tried to get him to do article writing, but everything he attempts to write about ends up being around politics. I've tried explaining CPA / IM to him, he goes off on a long drawn out debate / discussion about politics, and usually ends up with "here watch this and see how f***ed up this economy is". I've been talking to a few family members about it as well as a few friends, but everyone is pretty much drawing a blank. Now, he is in his early 60s, has I think it's "electrical engineering" background, the boards that are inside of a computer, such as the motherboard, he is able to design them - has the software, knowledge etc. Tried to get him to do freelancing on - freelancer and odesk, but the Indians(not being racial in any sorts) always outbid him by bidding lower. I'm pretty sure he knows C and ASM, not too sure on that. He refuses to move because like I mentioned earlier, his mind is completely wrapped around politics, you mention moving, he goes into politics and the different parties and what-not. The "noob" things such as Microworkers, Minuteworkers, etc. he think's their scams and refuses to do them. I think that ideally online work for electrical engineering would work for him. Other than that, anyone here have any serious ideas?
