Give me a winning money making idea

Ok, so I've got some personal challenges - health problems mainly - that make it virtually impossible for me to get a normal job.

In short I have some significant back problems (so can't do anything particularly active, or even sit or stand for long periods of time). I also have a sleeping disorder that makes it impossible to stay awake normal full time hours. My body clock is all over the place and I have very little control over it.

So in the absence of a normal job, I'm looking for small home business ideas. I've got one already figured out: converting analog tapes etc. to digital formats (iTunes, DVD, CD, etc.). This is perfect because I can do it in my own time and it doesn't involve anything particularly strenuous.

So now I'm looking for other ideas as well. Ideally I think I'd prefer dealing with consumers rather than businesses.


All that said, one place my back seems to be able to stay for long periods of time is the driver's seat of my car. So anything to do with driving is probably useful, although doing deliveries etc. not so good because getting in and out of the car a lot is painful.

Suggestions I'm NOT interested in are anything to do with multi level marketing or anything like that. I'm not interested in some sort of long term business idea. I'm interested in things that are easy to market and will make me money straight away. A service I can provide that pays on immediate delivery.

I have my own manual car and driver's license. I have a Mac computer and a lot of computer related skills. I'm located in Richmond on the outskirts of Sydney, so anything compatible with that location, or anything i can do by phone or online is good.


Not sure what else I can say. I'm sure you have questions. Ask away. Winning suggestion gets $20. If I get multiple winning suggestions I'll create multiple similar Airtasker tasks and award them to the winners so you can all get your $20. ;)

Hi David... Im looking for people to help me put bums on seats at 2 upcoming events... here is my task posted a couple fo days ago here on airtasker.. check it out and get back to me...
Idea #2 : Be an On-Call courier driver. You need a car lic for this job. You get a call to pick up a package and deliver in Sydney. Not sure if its profitable enough as you are based around Richmond but if you are keen, I can hook you up
Start a Website and sell stuff online. I can hook you up with Perfume wholesalers

If you dont know how to setup a website,We can get that done for you. Your job - just monitor and manage your business as products are shipped directly from Warehouse so no warehousing problem.

Andrew. Thanks for the idea. Already suggested by Poy above though. I looked into it once before unfortunately it's not something I can handle because of the 12 hour shifts vs my sleeping disorder. :/
Taxi Driver. you only have to get in and out of your car once a day, drive-through's for lunch, then home to relax
