    Ghost Jobs?

    I'd like members to post about their jobs where they don't see (or put up with) many people.

    Some time ago I had a dishwashing job at a restaurant at night. I'd work 5pm-1am there and only saw like 6 people.
    Then after I'd hang out in a 24 hour cafe until about 7am, reading, writing, staring off into space. Usually just me and the worker, with the occasional cop or taxi driver coming in. Then I'd get home and sleep while my roommates were at work.

    I had a Night Audit job at a hotel, I wasn't very good at the job though.
    Barely did I have to check anyone in or out.
    Only interaction I had was when I had to close the hot tub and tell people to leave,
    and noise complaints. So anytime I talked to anyone I was telling them to either shut up or get out.
    I read 1 novel a day at that job.

    I'm kind of curious about stocking shelves at a supermarket when it's closed.
    probably low pay, but I imagine you work with just 1 other person and the job doesn't seem so complicated.

    Night security at construction sites would be ok,
    Not sure if I'd meet physical requirements.

    I know these are humble jobs,
    I'm not competent enough to do any kind of online business
    and I'd like to hear about what you guys do to chase paper and avoid people.

    thanks in advance.

    Been a cab driver most of my life with a few time outs to try other things but now just drive. I also been mgtow all that time even before i knew what it was. It's the kind of job you can ghost and at the same time come in contact with many people because its fleeting

    I never worry about shaving, things i say or do, or even if people find out something i did such as being with a hooker, it has no effect on my job, there's no image i have to up hold. I don't punch a clock, and there's no set of hours i work. People never know when i'm working or when i'm not, they never know where i am at, so i can always have an excuse for any obligations others may try to pin you down with

    The tax man only sees me as a sole proprietor, no paper trails, they have no idea what i make other than what i tell them, which isn't much but it pays my bills, and they can never accuse me of living above my means. Of course i do come in contact with the same people some times, but i choice how cozy i want to get with them

    Now i told you some of the good things about my job, if you want to know the bad things check out a movie called hellcab, just google it and youtube should have some scenes, it's the most true to live look at what driving a cab is like

    Truck driving is a classic MGTOW job, but it actually involves a fair bit of paperwork and filing forms with the government, and you can't read while you do it.

    Most of our supermarkets have been replaced by a Walmat, in the county I live. Lots of glorious female specimens stocking the shelves in the middle of the night...

    I've been trying to find something in the welding/fabrication field...Lot's of younger, more malleable lads competing there though...I'm too old for a proper apprenticeship at 37...

    Currently, I'm at a small oil refinery, working night shift...Me and one other guy...I don't deal with anyone except delivery drivers bringing me my food...

    I'd say it's perfect but, it's very dangerous and sometimes very stressfull...Inhaling toxic vapors, breathing carcinogenic materials, and constantly heating up/ controlling volitile chemical-reactions that could go boom...Acid ain't no joke either. I've got a permanent reminder on my arm now...Better than the one my friend got on his face years back...Or, the guy before me...skin all gone on both legs...

    I'm almost thinking getting the CDL this spring...

    I have a landscaping and groundwork company that is doing well.

    Starting from scratch was difficult initially and was done as a second job for little or no profit in a estate car that could not travel more than 10 miles or so without overheating and needing water and time to cool down, a small tatty trailer and a couple of old second hand mowers and other tools from auctions. Bigger tools etc i simply hired and added the costs onto the quote.

    Focusing on doing a thorough and quality job and going the extra mile for each customer works wonders for gaining more work via recommendations and now i employ several crews and vehicles etc.

    I always ask my customers where they got my details from and note it on the paperwork so i know that around 80% of my work comes from recommendations or are existing customers wanting more work done, the rest are from yell.com where i pay to advertise.

    I'm a grave yard security guard at a lab. I don't shit but watch cameras and walk around. I'm in at 11pm out a 7am. I'm the only person there. With this gig you can write, draw, skype, code or whatever floats your boat. Try it.

    curious about the requirements or how to obtain experience.

    I'm not a very robust individual.
    I'm 5'3, 130lbs

    then again, I've seen laughable mall and airport security that look like they're 60-something and been eating Dennys for breakfast, lunch and dinner for a couple decades.

    Re: Ghost Jobs?

    Years ago (1973-74) I quit my job as VP of Property Management. I took a year off and became a running ghost. I trained for the marathon, hung out in the local coffee donut shop and went to the library and read books. At the end of the year I went to Europe and hung out there for several months. On the flight back I sat next to a professor from UC Berkeley. We chatted much of the trip. Once I got home I took a job busing tables in a restaurant. It was a temporary job to pay the bills. A few months later the professor walked in. I bussed his table making no attempt to say hello. I didn't hide either. I just ghosted. It was a state of mind.

    He never recognized me.

    Online sales (like ebay) is one of the best work for a ghost.

    Re: Ghost Jobs?

    Over the Road (OTR) truck driving as was mentioned. I have a brother-in-law who does that and he keeps trying to get me into it. If I ever move back to the states, I would give it a shot.

    Here are two sites with good forums and study information for trucking.

    www.thetruckersreport.com

    www.truckingtruth.com

    If you register with the trucking truth site, you will be able to study the high road program for free.

    Another job could be Security Officer. I did this one for a while when I was living in Sarasota, Florida. I had the 10pm to 6am shift. I was stationed at a place that kept boats for people. I had to take a wand with me at the top of every hour and use it to click certain places throughout the area.

    You'll have to see what the requirements are which differ from state to state. In Florida for example, I had to have 40 hours of training before being assigned to a place. This was for an unarmed security officer. There was also a psychological test. You could go for an armed security officer also. Just google how to become a security officer in whatever state you are living in.

    I hear Turkey is running out of oil tank truck drivers.

    The thing with driving trucks is its bad for your back and your health in the long run. You're always on the go, so there's not much healthy option. At rest areas, all you see are burgers and fries joints, pizza, donuts, etc.

    Then the requirement wouldn't be very high. Worst case, you'll get in easily.

    True, it would be more difficult to eat healthy. Especially during the time one goes out with the trainer and if one must then also go out with a partner and team for a a few months before getting ones own truck.

    However, after those two phases once can get the equipment needed to prepare healthy meals in the truck. That's what my brother-in-law does. Eats very healthy. Also, having to take the ten hours off gives one a little time to stretch.

    One has to stay somewhat healthy or they could lose their CDL by not passing the physical every two years.

    Re: Ghost Jobs?

    If anyone is considering driving trucks, you may want to do some research, watch some youtube videos. It's more of a lifestyle-job choice. It's a necessary job, but your lifestyle will be different. It's not a 9 to 5 job, where you expect to come home on a daily basis. You are away from home for days or even weeks driving and delivering.

    I'm 30, but I can't sit for too long.

    Re: Ghost Jobs?

    Self employment and passive income is something I am looking into to be honest. It requires a large sum of investment initially and hard work but it pays off over a longer period of time.

    Re: Ghost Jobs?

    I think this site gives a very good overview on how to create some passive income via blogs: http://www.mgtowsurvivalguide.com/mgtow-money/

    This may be something I'll continue looking into/actually doing while writing my thesis. YouTube Channels are also a possibility but unless you're fine with the exposure that might not be for everyone (I seem to remember some MGTOW content creators getting doxxed). Plus - at least regarding the things I'm interested in - it's already quite full of content (though not necessarily quality content).
    But I'm sure there's a myriad of other ways of using the internet to make money, just gotta know how. Can anyone recommend books regarding that topic? I seem to recall some guy saying he makes decent cash with his e-business or something, but he never got back to the people asking for more details.

    Re: Ghost Jobs?

    I have worked as a security officer for all of my career. My job is to observe the environment and people 12 hours a day. I have been doing this for the past 10 years. I have reached the point where if someone walks in I just know if they're going to do something dodgy. I've worked retail and have been a store detective and done security for night clubs. I find it amazing the subtle ques people give off that makes me have a six sense and just know if they're going to steal something or be a problem.

    Regarding MGTOW jobs being a store detective was quite a ghost job. My job was to pretend to be a shopper and catch people who were stealing. Throughout a good portion of my day i never spoke to anyone or needed to. The only people I was conversing with was management, criminals and the cops.

    Damn this article makes it sound so easy...I've wanted to start a blog on music production advice for a while now, might be time to try it out.

    Do any of you doing forex trading? Granted, this is a high-risk venture and takes lots of learning, risk management and self-discipline, as well as good start-up capital. Also, I've heard only the top 3-4% of investors make money (by skimming the rest of the 96-97% loss makers), but it is something to consider if you think you've got the knack for it.

    If you're interested, check babypips.com http://www.babypips.com/ or investopaedia http://www.investopedia.com/ .

    Also, you can start with a demo account to see how the forex market works, before you use any of your own money.

    Train in Yoga or Pilates or another form of fitness and become a self employed instructor. If you work at a gym you roll up, give the lesson and leave. Join multiple chains. Have an online presence and you'll get private (cash) bookings.

    Getting paid to keep fit. Saves on gym membership and keeps you at it. Good for all those ex truck drivers.

    Can be done at any age. Ask me how I know. Don't! I'll tell you anyway. I got into it because of a bad back.

    With an ageing population you'll never be out of work.

    Main job is musician. Another one useful for ghosting.

    I have found that pushing at anything that you find interesting eventually leads to a level of expertise which is marketable. Pursue your fascination and you'll be fulfilled.

    DJ and magician also work.
