Well you might thought I am lying, since I can still afford to have a computer and have an Internet connection, but believe me, I am a poor guy. My computer is from my brother-in-law who go to Japan and left the computer for me until he came back. And my internet connection is from my auntie next door. I can only connect online if she is online. I am poor, I lost my job 4 months ago and find it difficult to find new one because of my age. I am 36 years old. I have no job and my landlord in my apartment is now asking me to leave the place. I am very broke. I need a job.!

My mom once told me "Never think that you're poor" if you do, you'll always be poor. I tried to change way of thinking after that. Positive attitude will take you a long way. Trust me, it worked for me. Success will always follow to those who bring a positive attitude and positive outlook on life. Good luck

Well your mother is right. But it is hard to think that you are not poor if you have no food on your plate to eat. But I do understand what you mean my friend. Thanks!

I think I have talked to you in a chat room. Well thanks for sharing this to every one. Indeed it's quite difficult to find a job when you're over 30 I guess, but there's always an opportunity for each and everyone of us. I think you have a positive attitude and that will keep you going. Have you seen the movie Pursuit of Happyness, well you should watch it to get motivated when you feel depressed. But I think you're a happy guy. Luck will soon come your way my friend, just don't give up.

I don't get it. When and where did we chat? Thanks for the moral boosting my friend. Yes I'd seen that Will Smith film.

Hi my friend, just don't stick your behind all day on that computer. Earning online can never be suffice to solve your financial problem. Working online can take time to see the fruit of your labor. I still suggest you go find a decent job outside and try as much as you can because at your age, you still have the experience so people can still hire you. It will be difficult if you just rely your main income online. A steady earn is offline work and please do wake up that reality bites. You have your strength and talent or skills that people need, so apply a better work, it is not yet late to be hired.

I'm also jobless now, just recently resigned from my previous work. I was hoping to try jobs online... there are many freelance jobs available so you might want to look into those as well. But yeah, life is tough when you're unemployed. I'm also in my 30's so I know I have a slimmer chance of getting the job I like, especially since the competition is younger. But don't lose hope dude. I'm sure that if we try harder, we'll eventually land that dream job... heck any job, as long as it pays the bills. :)
