I get approached by a lot of people who want to know how to make money right away. While I do teach people some very simple ways to make money from home, I can also understand the desire to somehow do something now. Even selling on Ebay adds about a week between putting your item up for sale and getting the cash in your pocket.
So what can you do if you need to make money right now?
I had this question answered the other day when my doorbell rang.
A very nice guy by the name of Bobby came to the house. He’s a professional arborist and was looking to cut down, or trim some of my trees.
It so happens that I love my chainsaw and recently cut down a sick pine tree in the back yard. I was in good shape for having my trees felled.
But…I still had the remains of the tree, and a bunch of other brush that needed to be removed.
I asked Bobby if he was open to doing a quick yard clean-up of the large items.
“That pick up truck isn’t there to make me look pretty,” he grinned.
Away went my stuff. I got what I wanted and Bobby made some quick cash. Do I consider that the ideal businesses? No way. When Bobby isn’t out putting miles on his truck, he’s not bringing home the bacon. But that doesn’t mean there’s anything wrong with hard work and I was more than happy to trade Bobby some money for his valuable time and effort.
That made me think…how to make money with a pick up truck…or my own Explorer…I looked at some gig listings on Craigslist and found some things that would make it possible for me to pull in some money quickly. It’s probably not the right vehicle for hauling trash or brush…I don’t care if it get’s dirty, it just wouldn’t fit all that well. But there are a lot of things I could do and you can do with your vehicle.
Imagination is your only limit.
If you can’t think of anything right now, I suggest you “Dr Phil” the question.
Dr Phil says: What could you do to make money with your car or truck?
You say: I can’t make any money with my truck.
Dr Phil says: Well, if you could do something to make money with it, what would it be?
Eventually you find that you actually do have the answer inside your head already…now it’s time to act.
