What Are Some Good Self Employment Options For Sex Offenders?
Well there is not exact list but here is a good place to start.
1. Deliveries / Driver:
People in bigger cities need things delivered and just don’t have the time. Or the ability to do so. This could also be a home mover type job option.
2. eBay sales or Etsy sales:
There are many sex offenders who import items from www.alibaba.com They take those items and then turn around and sell them for a profit. Some make small amounts of money others make tons of money. It’s really up to you. People on www.Esty.com sometimes visit thrift stores and resell the old junk they find. There are tons of youtube videos about this. It’s called “picking”
3. Commercial cleaning:
I would steer clear of cleaning houses. However you could offer your services to bigger stores. They need people to do all the dirty work. Also if you are a sex offender working by yourself make sure you are at least working out of county if you plan to clean apartment complexes.
4. Graffiti Removal:
Many companies are willing to shell out money to get rid of unwanted art covering the their business. Get acquainted with the owners and possibly see if they have a spot for you in store. You never know what options may open.
5. Window washing, pool cleaning, snow removal, lawn care etc:
These jobs are easy to get and there are a lot of sex offenders doing them. Just get a sign and slap it on your car or truck and you are ready to go.
6. Pet-sitting and dog walking:
If you can get a dog to walk for 20$ for an hour (not uncommon) and get 5 of them to walk all at the same time you just made 100$ or the same could be said if you baby sit them at your house for a day. 5 dogs a day baby sat, 5 times $20 = $100 or $700 a week. Seriously good money if you live in the right area and get the word out.
There is never a short supply of people we need things hauled. Check out www.Craigslist.com or maybe start up a shipping company and use www.uship.com The people on shipping wars do it. One of them is even a felon.
8. Web design, Graphic Design, Internet Marketing:
These jobs pay well and no one ever needs to run a background check on you. They have so many options from becoming a blogger to whatever else. You can even make money off of youtube if you are good at editing videos.
9. Marijuana Farmer (where its legal):
If you have a green thumb this might be the right business for you. Some states allow it and some don’t, you have to check your local laws for that one and we hold no responsibility if you violate any law. The only reason we are even putting this up because it is an option. That is what we are here to do. Please do not violate any law. Do not make us have to take down this option because it has helped many people afford to take care of their families.
A lot of construction companies hire felons. In fact most do. The people you work for will rarely run a background check on you and most of the time you will be fine doing larger jobs. However you should try not to take jobs that will require you to work in finished homes where people are living. Unless it is completely outside the house. An example would be roofing.
11. Farming or Breeding Animals:
Raising farm animals can be profitable that is for sure. However it requires lots of work. With that said you could also breed something you love. A dog breeder can make tons of money. Even though most say that they do it because they love the breed. This is to stop people from doing it and stealing their business or flooding the market with puppies. We only ask that you please do not start a puppy mill. Please breed the animals with care. They have feelings and need to be loved. If you are unable to care for them then please do not breed them. Get them their shots and be professional.
We know of a person who is a sex offender who makes tons of money servicing mostly African American people with awesome designs cut into their hair. He makes on average $30-$60 per client and never runs out of work. He has repeat customers who come back to him again and again and always spread the word about his great hair cuts. This is a perfect example of what you can do. Everyone knows he’s a sex offender who molested kids but they do not care. His haircuts are just to good to pass up.
Just because you are a sex offender does not mean that there are not any options left. Get thinking about what you are good at. Think about how passionate you are.
