I officially decided to work towards self-employed/working from home due to having no luck finding a job that is right for me. I feel I will perform better if I am in a job setting that is controlled. My mom does not agree. But she is not in my head nor does she understand the demons in my head. No one knows what best for you than yourself. I have several ways to accomplish this. Even if it’s not to live off on, at least I’ll have some money in my bank account. Even if I get $100 bucks a month, it can at least get me started. I will give you some examples of how you can be apart of the quest. When I am successful, don’t you wanna be like ‘I helped her get to where she is.’ I will remember you when I am successful. I will never forget the people who inspired me to do what I do.
How You Can Be A Part Of My Journey
Telling Your Company About My Blog– If you work for a company, especially a new one, your company most likely will need someone to get the word out. I can write a blog post that represents your company, brand etc. I did a post like that for Grammarly. Click here if you wanna read it.
I also reviewed an app called Freeprints. Click here to check that out.
I feel this can be a start for my Freelancing career. I mostly write about autism and mental health. However, I write about other topics because I don’t want to limit myself.
Patreon- I have a Patreon for my art and my YouTube. I wanted separate accounts because I want my art business and my YouTube stuff separate. If I have multiple things on the same Patreon, I feel this will confuse the supporters. So I made another Patreon for my YouTube to make things easier. This is my art Patreon and this is my YouTube Patreon. I have some awesome rewards in store for those who donate. For instance, you may get access to Patreon-only posts. Say I get some equipment for my YouTube or art, you will be the first to know and you will be thanked in a post.
Buying My Art– I make blender renders, cosplays and photography. I opened up a shop for my art. I use Redbubble because I know of them and have used them before. I rather use a site I have heard of than a site I don’t know about and their quality is rubbish. Redbubble allows you to have the art in a phone case, apparel, home decor etc. I will also link back my store art to my Pinterest account to take you right to the image you may want.
Requesting Commissions- I have a blog post regarding this. It explains my requirements for commissions. I wanna set little ground rules as to what art I will and will not accept. My rates are not expensive. Check out my Deviantart page so you get a feel of my work. Also, I could have made a render you already may want. If Fiverr is easier for you, you can pick the service you want and message me. I suggest messaging me before you order so I get an understanding of what you want. I want to make sure I got down what you want.
I also will have affiliate links in my blog, this means I get a small reward for showing you some neat stuff. To make it less annoying, I will just review the product and add the affiliate link(s). Say I have a microphone I think the reader may want, I will write a review of that mic and add the affiliate link(s). I will just pin the blogs with affiliate links on Pinterest. I don’t want to annoy the reader constantly plugging links in my blog.
Telling your friend about this blog– You can tell your friends about my blog if you cannot afford to support me. Sharing my posts to your friends, family etc is a great way. Or you can have me write a guest post on a topic you’ll like. Preferably what I blog about on here so it makes more sense.
Follow My Steemit blog- I have a Steemit blog, on Steemit, you get money when someone upvotes your posts. This is a free way to support me if you may not have money to buy my art or for Patreon. Matter of fact, this is a preferred method since it’s costing you literally nothing.
You can also purchase my new eBook! I wrote a book about autism to showcase how we struggle with jobs. How it’s hard for us to find and keep a job. Get your copies here!
I don’t want this to look like an e-beg post, but more of a helping hand post. I want to eventually move out of my folks’ house and be on my own. To be in a setting better for my well being.
I would love to achieve these goals in the next year or so. I believe I can do it. It’s so much better than having a job that will make my mental health worse. My mental health is more important than anything in the world. My mom may not agree with working from home because I need to ‘get out’ but if I work from home and make more money than I would on a retail job, I can get out more. If I was on my folks’ car insurance, I could go to a park just to get some air, go to the mall and walk around, get some exercise.
One thing I learned is to prove people wrong, I can’t prove with words working from home is better for me, I have to prove it with actions.
