Freelance or Self-Employed.

If they ask what you do, take something you do every day and church it up.

ie. You play video games. = I'm a freelance play tester for console games.

ie. Clean up the house. = I'm a self-employed maid/window washing service.

Just say you don't make much doing it in case someone comes your way with a job offer.

what kind of business?
because I'll have to bullshit for like 10 minutes about stuff I don't actually do
I've told people I made server software before which seemed to work so far but I'm tired of using that one. I'm 20 and need an excuse to make purchases over $30k when people ask how I ran into that much

you'll be lucky if they let you finish the rant, the moment you mention any MLM you're guaranteed you won't be asked about your job. Or anything else. Or invited to any parties or events, but i guess that's a fair price to pay for the peace of mind.

Basically you buy some product that is cheap firm china, like power bands, or some kind of face cream, and convince people to buy it from you at a huge markup, then pay them to recruit others to buy the product from you so they can make tons of money selling it to their friends.

Honestly, I'm 20ish now but have enough money to get my life together. I don't have a job and never have (except for babysitting and some volunteer work). I've stayed inside my house for the past month playing counter-strike and league of legends because I have no reason to go outside and also I feel awkward around people. I want a job and to move out of my moms house but my anxiety is holding me back. What do I do?

I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don't have money. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills, skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let my daughter go now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will kill you.

Welp you're screwed. Best you can do is work out each day and get ripped. That way when people see you, you can give off the illusion that you're happy and successful.

depends on what you like really

OP I hate/hated getting asked that.

The order goes:

Don't have a job.
>you got a job yet?
Get a job.
>why don't you have a girlfriend yet?
Have a job and a girlfriend.
>why aren't you guys married yet?
Have a job and married.
>no kids yet? cmon what are you guys waiting for?
Have a job, married, and a son.
>why isn't he walking/talking/running/ yet?

Annnnnd a shit load more questions. I honestly wouldn't mind talking it about it now and then with people, but when every single person you meet asks the same fucking questions every single time you see them....

This is a popular in LA: "I'm in between projects." That line alone will save your dignity and still allow puss. Its important to refer to celebs by nicknames and also to talk about how much money you (don't) make otherwise ppl will call your bluff. Additionally do some imdb research on 2016 projects to further the charade.

If its legal money you don't have to say shit. No one cares where money comes from as long as its there and legal.

I have 6 figures and that will probably jump to 7 in a few years and I've done fuck all to earn it except some childhood trauma and anxiety.
