Can anyone give ideas of what are the best/most realistic employment ideas for self employment with an S.O please? (I have an S.O for images)

I am thinking of going for a leaflet distribution job I heard someone else had luck with.

I  wondered is it a bad idea to go for cleaning dog mess from people's gardens? Just thinking of service based jobs where there is always a need.
I'm not the sharpest tool in the shed, so always worry about whether my ideas are sensible or not- Background checks/risk etc.

So to recap-

1. Dog poo cleaning idea good?
2. Any other sled employment ideas?

Thanks

"I'm not the sharpest tool in the shed" - don't do yourself down lad. You're coming up with ideas in what is a very tricky situation. Having belief in yourself will help get past some of those barriers eventually.

Fighting or Accepting - its difficult to know which is right and when.

Thank you. I wondered if any potential interaction with kids  and stuff would be problematic with cleaning dog poo from people's gardens? Just read/saw folks doing it as it a potential evergreen job? Thanks again.

Hi
Your taking the right approach by considering the pros and cons of any occupational role you undertake.

As we don't know your skillset in particular what "transferable" skills you have ( those from previous roles that can be of use to you in a different role) it is hard to suggest.
However I am sure you have a CV so study that and write down a brief statement on each element required of any and all roles you have had.
List them in the order of your ability and enjoyment of undertaking that skill.
Look at "work/roles" that utilise your preferred skillsets. 
Then look at those roles from a PPU / SO conditions perspective to see how each could be objected to.
Obviously if you find a role that you think creates no objections, then research and apply for that role(s).
Write down answers to the "objections you think maybe raised" and if you think you can "stand your ground" then research and apply that role(s)

It is hard to appreciate that the process is just the same as that followed by "any" jobseeker" so if you can:
take the approach of someone finding a wonderful job but they do not have the correct qualifications for; but they have self belief.

In other words you lack the qualification of a clean record, but many individuals succeed in roles even though they do not have "qualifications"!


good luck and any questions please ask.
