    My boyfriend lost his job in September, but he was getting his unemployment. I found a niche while we both was working to see if i can make some extra money on the side and made a website. I had the website for about 6 months now, but it not where i want it to be and I have tried and read everything but nothing coming my way.

    2 days ago he got a mail from the unemployment office saying that his benefits have been denied. My rent is $800 plus we have lights, gas, internet, and gas to put in the car for me to get to work.

    Now since I am the only one with income which I am making about $200-$400 every 2 weeks I can't just pay everything on my own and rent will most likely take it all.

    Any suggestion on what I can do because I don't know what else to. I just feel like giving up on everything since everything is not going as good as I would like it.

    So tell him to get another job. Might seem easier said than done, but it seems like he's been jobless for a while now.

    I'm pretty sure her 200-400$ is from a real job, not IM.

    Maybe he should start helping you out as well. If you are making 200-400$ every 2 weeks, both of you can make double the amount using the same method. Then you can use half of his money to reinvest, and the other half to spend on bills etc.

    OR

    He can go get a job.

    if that money is not from IM ~ then your BF gotta get a job. :(

    He have been going around passing out resumes and applying online while he was getting unemployment but still not getting calls from nobody.

    The thing about is he don't believe in making money online. He know that I do have a website and all but see I don't make money from it. I even tried to get him into it but still not interested.

    Unfortunately, life can be harsh and downright cruel. I lost my 5 yr-old son almost 18 years ago in a tragic car accident. My life stopped that day and I lost everything, my family, many friends, my career and my will. After several years of depression and feeling sorry for myself....I decided to take one last stand after I met a wondeful young lady who had 2 adorable boys.

    I couldn't work in an office environment anymore and was looking for a way in which I could use my skills to help her and help gain back some of what I had lost so many years ago.

    Over the past couple of years, I have built a successful SEO business which I run all by myself. Sure, it's difficult at times and changes occur daily but it has allowed me to find myself again and help someone I love.

    Maybe, I have shared to much here, but I want you to know that if there is a will...there is a way. Don't give up as I did so long ago...I wish you the best and hope all works out.

    Take care

    you have the basic things you need to start up. i hope you were finding something related to IM here. otherwise you wont post a thread here.:D
    anyway,in IM(Internet Marketing) there are some basic facts you must follow with like in other every business people do. you can see many newbies here Starts up with the Zero. just search the forum. in money making section you will see many. if your boyfriend or you have enough time to get start with this these are tons of ways to begin here.
    Actually i must say this,If you are in BHW you can make money without No doubt. Gather ideas & put them in to action. Never stop until you succeed.
    Good luck

    I'm really sorry you are having these problems. As almost everyone else mentioned above, your BF needs to get a job quick. Even if it's not in his background or that glamorous, he should apply for them anyway until he finds the job he wants. Even if it's BK, McDonald's or some other burger joint, grocery stores, yard work, etc... you get the picture.

    Of course finding a job depends on the state and city in which you live but hopefully he'll find something soon.

    Also, I thought the Obama administration recently extended unemployment benefits. I don't know if he qualifies but he should look into it.

    She mentioned that he has been looking for a job. Its tough out there but times like this make you stronger in other areas. Time to get creative, use what you guys have...

    Do you have any friends or family who will let you live with them for a while for cheaper rent? It doesn't sound like you guys can afford where you live right now. You are going to need to move, hopefully closer to work or start taking public transit if that is an option where you live.

    Keep working hard at your current job and try to pick up as many hours as possible. Online income isn't anything stable. It took me a long time just to make my first $1.00 , and about 10X as long to make my first $10.00. Try to look into Fiverr and see if you can provide any tasks online.

    We would be doing you wrong if we told you that you can expect to make more than $100/month online within the next 12 months. It just isn't realistic to expect for your situation. I work 14hour per day online most days, and I have some months where I LOSE money due to hosting and VPS costs. I have been at it for a couple of years, and I can only just now pay my bills from Internet Marketing, and its only because my bills are VERY minimal.

    You should try to find living arrangements for around $600-$700/month which includes your internet/heat/lights/gas etc by renting a basement or something. Hopefully that is possible where you live.

    At the moment I am out of luck. I have been investing what I had back then but now I am not able to do nothing.

    I think he should try doing "odd" job's to augment your income. it may not provide much but it could at least help lighten the financial load on you. He could also try his luck, freelancing on online marketplaces like odesk , or micro gig sites like fiverr - though i would not suggest he go chasing this rather than look for a "real" job. Either way, you both have each other so you'll do fine.
