Day trading your own investments.


No interviews.
No boss.
No middle management.
No start and end time, other than when the markets are open.

I am a substitute teacher on Maui. I work when I choose and earn about $170 per day. I love it and work even though I don't need the money. Choose a good District if you do this. I wouldn't want to sub in many places in America. In most states all you need is a bachelor's degree to get started.

Malloy has the state senate behind him all the way, if I were you, I'd be calling my representatives and pleading a case for a buyout. I'd back you up but as a CT taxpayer, I don't want my taxes going up.....again! Sorry. Hey, if you can hold on until '17, he's going to Washington if Hillary gets in. Good riddance Dannel!

I am thinking of starting a 8 track player repair business when I retire.

Parts runner for an auto parts store.

I also knew an old guy who ran medical samples 3 times a week, 300 mile round trip each day.

I don't know what they pay, but what about a hospital security officer job? Even if the pay wasn't great, the benefits (especially health insurance) would be. And if it's a suburban hospital in a low crime area, I would think the job would not be too stressful at all.


When we were renting, before we bought a house, our landlord was retired and had rental houses plus he worked at Home Depot - for the health insurance.

I would love to learn to do that, but I am afraid I'd lose all my money before I figured it out! There are workshops in my area, but I'm just so skeptical of the whole thing.
