I just wrote a vent about being poor and I still have so much to say. I really feel down and out. I am lost and don't know what to do. I don't know how to be successful at least not w/o a college education. Im really trying and Im still in the dumps. I can't afford to go to college I dont have 18,000 laying around the house. Financial will only pay 3,000. I applied for grants ..still nothing! I even went as far as writing Oprah to see if I could get some kind of grant for school. I feel like a loser right now. I will take any advice I can get right now.Answer Question

Again you can make your own opportunities. Go out everyday and think what can I do today to improve me situation. Weather it is filling out endless job applications, taking night school, getting that dreaded loan. What ever it is do and make it happen. That is what makes rich people rich, making it happen and being wise with money. Check out this website for school money planning, http://www.nelnet.com/.
Were there is a will there is a way. Go make it happen.

What are you good at? make your hobby(s) work for you. Incorporate a business for yourself - LOTS of tax breaks. It cost about $200-$300. You can start a before and after care in your home (a licence doesn't cost much either, but check w/your state). Sell somethings on Ebay. Live Ops, you can work from home (with a $50 background check). Go to the pawn shop and buy like two ounces of gold (if you can find a good deal) and then try and trade it for a bar or just invest in currency trading (does better than the stock market). If you have a 401k take some out and buy a popular commodity and let the profit grow. I really suggest that you find ways to make your money work for you rather than you work for you money.
