How do you make money when you live in the middle of nowhere?

I live in the middle of nowhere. There are no stores, schools, police, nothing. I have no car, no job, no credit, and only $10 in my bank account. I live with my fiance (and his family) who also has nothing to his name. I live off of free samples and online survey sites. I have no clue how to pull myself out of this situation and how to get our own place. I cannot move anywhere because we have no proof of income. We cannot get a car because we have no credit. And neither my family nor my fiances family can help us because they too have no money. We live in the middle of nowhere and there are no people around or stores to work at. I make all my money online by doing surveys or reading emails. I don't have anything to sell on EBay and I have no way to send the items even if I did have something to sell. Our internet is really bad and we cannot even watch youtube videos or even go to certain sites because they take hours to load. I have no one in my family that I can talk to. We have no money saved, no jewelery, no cash. My fiance has no GED. I have a bartenders license but no equipment or alcohol. I am desperate. We are close to being thrown in the streets and can no longer stay in our home. I would love some advice please.

I'm sorry to hear about your problems. It sounds like you might be a prime candidate for government assistance- I think that you should go online (since you have internet) and check out the government website to see about going on welfare. It sounds like you're interested in working, so I'm sure if you talked to a counselor, they'd be able to help you get something. Other than that, I'm not sure what to advise you. It sounds like you're in a really desperate situation. The other thing that I might suggest is to see if there is a local church or something that might be able to help you out- I'm not sure if you meant that you were so far out that you didn't have any churches either. I'm having trouble thinking of where you could possibly live though. I think that you really need to get some help to relocate.

Living in a rural area and trying to make a living can be difficult. Are you able to work as an aide in the local school system or in a daycare center? Does your local school system have a need for a cafeteria worker or a cafeteria aide? Do you have a skill like sewing or knitting? If you do, you could alter clothing or make items and sell them. Do you attend a church? If you do, let it be known that you are desperately in need of a job. There may be elderly people in the congregation or living in your area that would have a need for a person to come in and help them with household chores. Others in the congregation may have some leads. I do hope that these suggestions posted here will give you some ideas. Good luck - it sounds like you need it!!!

As one who has occasionally watched the Ellen Degeneres Show, I highly recommend you contact her and tell her the same thing you told us. She might help you get a job, and she just might get you the things you need to get on your feet. I've seen her do it lots of times. I wish you luck, and I will certainly lift you and your circumstances up in prayer.

write a country song or do standup - people love sad songs and like to laugh at others misfortune -or - seriously, grow a garden and sell at a roadside stand - the only other way is to somehow find your way to the nearest city

I really have no clue how to help you but I will go to your page and do all your topics and OTs and hope you get some money that way. If I have any ideas, I will let you know.

I spent Many great years in the Military. Unless the two of you are over 35 years old, join the Service.
I absolutely LOVED my years in the Military. ANY Job, Any Skill, Any Trade, ANYTHING, that you do on the Outside as a Civilian, you can train to do in the Military.
As long as it's just the two of you, you should have No Problems managing your Money. You will get your Housing Paid (or get a Housing Allowance), you will be given an Allowance for your Food.
You will get GREAT TRAINING and get Paid while you Train - I met such wonderful people while I was in the Military and I had a chance to travel all over the World.
It ISN'T EASY - IT'S NO PIECE OF CAKE AND IT'S HARD WORK. But, what in the World could the two of you Lose??????? Sounds like the two of you have NOTHING, and if you don't get out of that situation, in a couple years you will STILL HAVE NOTHING.
Except maybe a couple kids that will even make your Current Situation even more Desperate. You simply MUST get out of that Environment - even in 10 years, you will have nothing more than you have now. You absolutely MUST step up and DO SOMETHING to further you Life and your Skills and maybe in a few years you will have something to show for your Life!
Good Luck!

I wish that I could help you, but I am only able to make it with my "social insecurity". I get help with my groceries from the local food bank, and I do earn some money by doing surveys. This helps me to be able to pay my bills and supply my other needs. Have you applied for food stamps? I have seen sites on the internet that help the unemployed. I don't know if these are legitimate, but perhaps you could check them out. There are some other sites where you can teach, and you don't need a degree. If you do any kind of arts and crafts there are sites you can access online to offer teaching, or if there are other things you can do you may be able to find other places that you can teach what you do. These are just a couple of things for you to check out. I hope that you will be able to work out some things in your situation. Please let me know how you are doing.

If it's in the middle of nowhere, obviously you're in a rural area, where people raise crops and animals. Go ask the neighbors if they'll hire you to help with chores. Farm people are always glad to have a helping hand around. Take whatever wage they offer and work like there's no tomorrow; farmers appreciate a hard worker.

Milk cows? I don't know what people do except that whatever it is they must like it or they wouldn't be doing it.
