Flexible income ideas?
« on: July 20, 2017, 12:09:11 PM »
Need help with ideas for home based business or something that can be done online.

My wife was in a auto accident two years ago and her health is deteriorating which is causing me to miss more work. She is unable to care for herself or the kids alone most days and is not capable of working again.

I've not researched it, but I believe medical billing can be done in your own home.

And, obviously, all the other mustache tips for saving money would apply too. (Bargain shopping, avoid unnecessary costs, sell your too-large home for a more affordable one if that applies to you.)

Completely forgot about medical billing.

I've been racking my brain for ideas for home based business all day. My issue is living in Alaska can be blessing and curse when it comes to business. Shipping is my major hurdle for things that can be crafted from home and sold online.

If your wife is unable to work conventionally, she might qualify for social security.  My brother is considered 100% disabled and receives social security.

There are lots of threads here about side hustles and at home jobs, you can try googling "side hustle" and mrmoneymustache. Also the entrepreneurship topic here would be a good place to look.

Yes, she is able to collect social security, but she needs a few more things taken care of before applying and will likely take a couple years for approval. My mother took 5 years for hers to be approved because Alaska only has one judge that handles these decisions.
