    A small update:
    What a week .. I've been to the gym twice now and I listen to earl nightingale every day.

    I try to apply for jobs every day, but I receive messages every day that I do not meet the requirements of the position or that they have someone better. I myself live in the Netherlands, but born in Lebanon. I feel that I am being discriminated against ... but I cannot prove that. I try to stay positive, but this was a bad day. Life is unfair and you have to play with the cards you have. I hope I can find a job as a VA and pays a minimum of 10 euros per hour. If I can find that I am happy

    First positive update!

    Today I had my first freelance job, someone wanted to make a dropshipping store, because I had often made webshops and I failed to know exactly how to do everything.

    The profit? 300 Euro. So i made in 3 hours 300 euros.

    WOW that felt great.

    Tomorrow I have an application for chat employee which you can do online from home, if I am hired I am happy! I also have 2 other jobs that I can take, but I want this one!

    I have 2 gigs online on fiverr, unfortunately no sales yet .. need to come up with something for that. I made 2 courses on udemy and unfortunately no sales yet .. So I am curious what the future holds.

    Congratulations on the first 300 EUR. Since you already made money in something, it's better to try to do similar work as it will get you more chances of success.

    Try to find more clients for whom you can make dropship stores like the one you made.

    Also don't forget to ask the first client for a referral. And you can offer to do more work for him - ask him if he'd like to hire to for say 100 EUR per month to manage their Instagram & Facebook accounts.

    And most important thing, don't spend that 300 EUR completely. Try to save at least half of it.

    And bro, don't take anything personally. In capitalism, nothing is to be taken at heart. Them discriminating against you is just another business difficulty, since you're interested in doing business in Netherlands. As months go by, I suggest you try to become more Dutch than Lebanese. Explore the local culture and make friends with the locals. You are earning your money in the new country and you belong there now. So it's best that you immerse yourself in this new place. The first few hundreds of locals might discriminate cuz of where you come from. But when they see you appreciate their culture and language and are making an effort to become part of them, they will start supporting you - first one or two of them, then larger groups. I suggest you seek friendship with Entrepreneurs in your city. Entrepreneurs are more focused on making money and creating value and not on low level petty bullshit like racial discrimination.

    All the best brother.

    Update: Hey guys I have a small update.
    I had a job interview with a live chat employee company, they have 3 rounds before being hired

    I was not accepted, I felt that I had done well, and I answered the questions well, but well the next day I received a message that I had not been accepted. I found their reason nonsense, but well I will never know what the real reason is.

    On Thursday an old client of mine called me and asked me if I can check his computer and clean up his computer. I used to work in IT before, without a degree. I worked for a company that sent me after clients to solve their IT problems, i used to make 30% and they 70%, so i ditched that job and worked for myself, but it was hard to find clients.

    So now I have done something that I regret, yesterday I earned 200 euros in 2 hours. I made his computers good and I installed Microsoft Office 2007, I said that costs an extra 100 euros. This way he does not have to pay a lot of money every year to Microsoft for those newer versions of word. He agreed, and I installed it for him and I received 200 euros.

    The problem is what he doesn't know is that I downloaded and installed it for him via torrent microsoft office 2007. Maybe it's wrong to make money that way, what do you think?

    This week I worked a total of 5 hours = 500 euros earned.
    Without a job, I am now looking for a way to find more customers to earn more money. There are freelance websites but you have to pay for that so I doubt.
