I'm not a marketer, I only stumbled into the idea of doing marketing because my mother became ill. A little back story on me, I'm a 2nd year college student that's pre-med, far from marketing and far from business. I've always wanted to be in medicine not for the money but to help. Kinda funny how at the money I'm in need of that money. The idea was to go to college, major in something your interested in, and make a stable career. Things were shaken up when my mother became ill, seriously ill to the point of being hospitalized for months. She has been in the hospital since September (my birthday). Father died a long time ago and mother was struggling just to survive, in hopes I'd make it out of poverty. She worked herself into the hospital. Through scholarships, loans, and hardwork it seemed like things were finally looking well.. until she became ill. Hard to focus on school, speaking with the dozens of doctors and what test they want to run. From CT scans, to x-rays, to removing liquid around the lungs, to possible amputations.. its taken its tole on me and my study. The only thing on my mind is how to make money.. any money. A couple things arose, it looked like mom was going to be kicked out of her home, no one was there to pay the bills until I used my loans to help. I left school shortly after that so I could be with her and help. She hasn't recovered... and is unable to even walk without rehabilitation. I've looked for jobs with no luck, apparently no one wants to give a kid a try if he doesn't have experience. At the end of the day its just me and her. I've thought of a couple things, to see if I could make income for her and me. First it was investing, later to find out you need allot to see any returns. Second I thought, what not buy from China and sell here, only to find out the seller wanted me to deposit what little I had into her paypal account. Third I thought I could sell things in the house like purses on ebay, only to find out I had no bids for months. Finally I though, maybe I could do affiliate marketing... only to find out, no one clicks the links I provide from clickbank and I have no way of making it work. Nothing I've tried seemed to work, and anytime I look for answer, I find people who want to make money off of me when in fact I'm barely surviving. Suicide did come to mind, but... I can't go before mom and I can't bare to know she would cry. I do have an $8 work-study, thats a start. What would you do if you were to make income. Anything would suffice, anything to support her and me. Even a doller a month now is better than $0. So why did I make this post? As an appeal, not for money but for advice. Things do look bleak, I know I maybe need to face reality that there is no money and I would need to sacrifice things like school or health to make money. But as an appeal... what would I do? Your experts at this, what would you do if you were me?
