I'm losing hope

    I've read literally every method on this forum and most of them are awesome and can make you nice money, but they do require the work and cost of running websites that need articles written and SEO done, e.t.c. I've bought a website and it has failed miserably due to numerous reasons, to the point of no redemption, = $50 and 100 hours wasted. I don't have any more money to waste on websites.

    What I would like to know from you guys, as cliche/generic as this question may sound, are there "methods" that have you do something other than send people to a landing page or run a website or whatever? For example re-selling a gig on Fiverr (but that can't be done these days due to over-saturation on Fiverr of course.)

    I've tried applying for Amazon MTURK to do tasks because that has potential, but I'm not a almighty Murican living in the best country in the world full of the bestest amazingest people so Amazon thinks I'm shit and denies my application, I've even sent messages to support asking them to review my application but to no avail. Other micro-task sites like Clickworker and Microworkers are useless as there aren't any offers. GPT sites are useless and the only good thing I've found so far is posting on forums with Postloop, which has earned me $70 in the past two months, but due to a lack of motivation and a dwindling supply of forums to post on, that has become a lost hope. I've read everything on forums such as /r/Beermoney and I do visit /r/SlaveLabour every now and then to do some tasks, (these are Reddit threads) but I don't even bother reading things on those "Make Money Online" websites because 99% of those articles are just sponsored/affiliate crap.

    I'm not interested in going to university(college) due to personal reasons. I want to make money while I'm in High School (Grade 11 at the moment) so that I can leave home with a car and a house to buy (at least on credit, obviously I won't have 2 million Rand by then), the problem is a lack of opportunities, motivation and methods. I love the idea of making USD because thanks to our president, who has 120+ counts of corruption and has less education than I do, the Rand gets weaker every time he opens his mouth, which is nice for me. I can't do drop shipping and stuff like that because I'm not 18. I have tried buying cheap Chinese stuff like phone covers on eBay and selling them here for profit with moderate success, but shipping does take 2 months which is painful.

    If anyone could recommend anything other than article writing, which I'm not exactly good at, I would really appreciate it. Searching on Google and forums has gotten me this far, getting real advice from real people, I would assume, can get me a little further. Thanks.

    EDIT: Sorry for stupid title, I know it sounds whiney but I'm here to ask, not to complain.

    College is fun and makes the best memories. It's just not a good investment.

    You underestimate your country and your possibilities. At least, you have an Internet connection and know English. It is enough to start. And you are pretty lucky already.

    No you haven't. If you had, you wouldn't be asking such long unnecessary questions.

    It's not the goal to read all the methods and fail all of them, take 2 methods, work on them as hell, for 1 year, and you will find tons of twists from those methods, you will make some money and you will invest in more twists.

    When you make some money take another 2 methods and invest in them for 6-7 months, you will find your own twists and you will make money with them.

    Quality over quantity

    It's costing nothing to upload some videos to Youtube with a CPA/CPI link on it !

    There are lots of method that can bring you earnings but yeah they might require more work on your side ! It's all about work ^^

    No one can help you if you can't help yourself !

    I read it dude. Don't blame the country/president for your lack of success. You have to make your own opportunities.

    You dismiss fiverr due to "oversaturation, of course", which is just wrong imo. You just need to put your own creative spin on a niche.

    If you have any skills, you can go looking for leads yourself. That requires no website and no prior investment whatsoever.

    Honestly this seems like yet another troll post but in case it is not, here is some real advise.
    Your English seems solid. Why don't you try doing some writing for people. Assuming you live in India or a similar country you can undercut all the native writers by a fair amount because no sensible person in western Europe is going to work for 5-10 USD/hour.
    Of course, there are plenty of foreign article writers already but their writing is usually complete shit. If you can provide good quality at a reasonably low cost you'll get costumers. There are plenty of sites, both free and premium, where you can sell your services.

    I made this post to ask for some insight while giving a backstory as to why I am asking as opposed to just pitching the generic "Give me a method because I'm too lazy to find my own" There's no need to get hostile.

    Just fix it and you'll be alright. There are 100s of ways to make money, but nothing would work without you putting any effort.

    If it was that easy OP ... I mean to find a method, implement it, stick to it and start making money ... I mean not everyone here on this forum has the right attitude to learn and implement things. Look dude I started with IM around your age, the year was 2013 and I was a f*cking noob ( I still remember my first PMs to other members here, asking them what is SEO, PPD, PPI, Adsense and so on). Now 3 years after that I started making a passive income from IM ( NOTE: 3 F*CKIN years of failing, but NEVER giving up). I am my motivation dude, looking in the past and telling myself "Look what a stupid guy u were, you had no idea about IM at all, you started from the bottom making pennies with websites like adfly and now you are making $$$$ from affiliate marketing and other methods.
    And guess what OP I never stopped learning and putting effort in random IM sectorts just to enrich my knowledge... all these countless sleepless nights OHH BOYY btw. there was a period of my life where I felt like my head was going to explode from reading on BHW so I decided to stop reading and start taking action :)

    I have to agree with you on one point: fivr has really lost it's appeal these days. to get your gig noticed you have to market it yourself on other nets. if i need to market my own gig, why do i need fivr in the first place?!!!

    I came here when I was younger with a load of some of the hardest things to deal with. Overall find a way to be happy sitting on the computer because this process takes a couple years to learn and a couple more to break away from seclusion.

    I'd strongly urge you to use your time wisely without wasting it as time kills itself fast in this industry learning alone... With other factors such as economy shifts, new era introductions & replacements of past ideas you have to jump in quick in order to teach yourself the next step.

    Money comes better with little to no investment so avoid buying things unless you're teaching yourself something.

    You haven't read every method... not by a long shot. I made $500 from my first website after two months of work and I ranked it using the techniques discussed here. Theres one thing reading everything and the other is understanding whats written. Twist the methods and you can do better.
