    I am a 26 year old from the U.S. on disability at the moment and it's not enough to truly cover all of my bills. I'm never going to be kicked out of my place so that's not an issue. I will never go hungry either. My current situation isn't the best though. Since I am on disability, my income is capped if I choose to try working again. I would love to have some "extra" money to buy things for myself and most importantly, get off of disability entirely at some point.

    Now what I am having trouble with is the fact that I am only allowed to make around $1,000 a month and still keep my disability. I need a job where I can cap my income at $1,000 per month until I know that I am able to make more than the benefits that I currently receive every month. I cannot invest into anything at the moment as money is really scarce but once I get on my feet then I will gladly do so if necessary.

    The job must be a work from home job since I have no transportation and can't afford a babysitter for my kids. I have tried article writing before in the past and it was a great gig but what I am having trouble finding is a writing job where I can work as much as I want and not a set amount. I have seen quite a few jobs on elance and not one that I have seen is a work as much as you want or as little job. Freelancer has the same results for me as well. Does anyone have any suggestions as to any jobs that I could do that would allow me to work as much as I want? I don't care if I don't get paid weekly or daily, that's not an issue for me. I don't mind waiting for the money if need be. Thanks for reading my thread.

    Firstly, I am sorry to hear about your situation.

    What skills do you possess relevant to online marketing? Becoming a website designer does not take very long. Two weeks of tutorials and you can sell your services and make an easy $1000 per month.

    Make eBooks about whatever, and make a site to sell them on, once you have sold $1000 worth take the pay button down until the next month. all you need to make eBooks is free software like open office, and they have free PDF converters online. You will need to learn some traffic methods though, and how to make a site. You can use wordpress for that.
