Re: For those unemployed/who asked: Ideas to supplement your income or start your own business.
Good thread Phen I started my own business back in 2005 and never would figure i would be as successful as we have become

Heck even my own dad doubted me.

I'm never the smartest guy in the room but I bet im the most persistent
 Quoting: Philligan


So tell us what you do so as to help others.
 Quoting: Bear Drinker


Ok well usually people dont want to hear it so I dont really talk about success. People just mad and think the successful people are bragging when they talk about it

But I own a company that specializes in advertising online. I actually start a website back in 2005 that became very popular and I was able to sell it for good money.

Then we branched out into SEO reality keywords with Google. That really blew up and continues to do well now.

But thanks for asking

 Quoting: Phennommennonn


I think the key to finding ourselves work wise, is to do something that we love for profit.

In the case of an artist, it might be to paint or sculpt. Then sell the art work in exchange for coin of the realm.

I personally believe that if a person does something they truly love as their work, they will be successful beyond their wildest imagination.

Here is a little something to help anyone struggling with this concept.

Copy the following text and place it where you will read it several times per day.

"MONEY FLOWS EASILY INTO MY LIFE AS I DO WHAT I LOVE"

Here is another positive affirmation

"THIS WEEK I WILL EXPERIENCE A MIRACLE HAVING TO DO WITH MONEY".

So there you have it, find something you love to do for profit and go for it. Remember that what your mind conceives is what you will ultimately have.

peace
 Quoting: Nikola Tesla


My suggestion would be Senior Services. So many older people need assistance in going shopping (because they cannot drive anymore) light housework, minor repair, yard work.

I watched my mother and her friends deal with this and wished so many times there was somebody reliable to help her. I lived far enough away I could only come once a week, and I was rushing to do things when really what we both wanted was to just enjoy the company. My case was not at all unusual.

****

These "thinking tools" Tesla handed you are indespendible, and two other "thinking tools", worry and discouragment, are sure to sink whatever you set out to do.

Your attitude is as important as your car or your trade tools. Even more important, as your car will wear out and your trade tools can get lost, broken, etc. Your Prosperity Consciousness will get stronger and more natural through the years.

I have seen these principles operate in my life and in others many many times. It may take some real practice to get these principles into action, but keep at it, you can turn your life around.

****
This is one of my favorite GLP threads. Thanks for bringing it to the forefront again, Phenn.

Re: For those unemployed/who asked: Ideas to supplement your income or start your own business.
check this out folks - most of yaz know that i adopt from fostercare - 18 kids to date ive cared for

now i met this woman in the grocery, she had two, well...theres no other way to put this, 2 retarded guys with her.

we got chatting over freezers - and she mentioned that she does ADULT FOSTER CARE. she cares for 3 mentally challenged men in her home.

and she doesnt have to go thru all the training that i do monthly -

if thats something you guys could possibly go for - check with your local welfare office

this keeps adults out of managed care facilities and she said the pay is anywhere between 700-1500 a month per adult.

But there is a price for that freedom, which is that sometimes... we have to tolerate things that we don't necessarily like. So go back in that room... where you are free to think whatever you want to think... about Larry Flynt and Hustler magazine. But then ask yourselves if you want to make that decision for the rest of us... because the freedom that everyone in this room enjoys... is, in a very real way, in your hands. If we start throwing up walls against what some of us think is obscene... we may wake up one morning and realize... that walls have been thrown upin places we never expected... and we can't see anythingor... do anything.

If you have a green thumb, locate and sprout exotic seeds and flip them in Ebay. There are huge seed places on the web with 20 or more very exotic / rare seeds for only a couple of £. Look at Ebay to see what different plants and plant sizes go for. I'd be doing this but stuck in a place with no good light. Be aware of phytosanitation licences needed or just say screw it and overnight them in a ziplock bag.

If you really are deparate and this may have been covered already, find chirches without a minister. Make sure it is a demonination that is obscure so you don't get your credentials checked. A large amount of churches just want a preacher. Make up a fake background and tell them you come from some equally obscure church, or you just got back from a 20 year overseas mission to Africa. Obviously, download sermons from the 'net and just read them. Free place to live, stipend, recognition as a spiritual authority. DO NOT SKIM THE OFFERING PLATES. Cannot stress this enough. Although you can claim satan forced you to do it after you healed a possessed child in Africa but you are free of demons now, you're going to have to flee anyway. Big no no. Before you say this will not work, I know a certain cross dressing "minister" who is on their 3rd church now in the south. Both previous times -- skimmed the collection plate and went gambling at the indian casino.

They pay you based on how many views your article gets. It can be a good source of passive income if you choose topics that have long-term interest trends.

Nice ideas. I'd like to find something I could do. My husband works and after getting my associates degree back in June I haven't had much luck finding a decent job. I have 3 young kids and daycare costs are outrageous. I'd end up working and making nothing after paying for it. I'd love to be able to earn money that wouldn't take me too far from home either.
 Quoting: *<3sugar&spice<3*


Why don't you open a daycare?

You may be able to get by if you only care for under a certain number of kids.

Check it out, if rates are that high, it may be viable for you.

You can make 50k-100k as a third party seller for Amazon. Its hard work, but you're the boss. I does take a few thousand in startup capital and there is a learning curve, but the business model works.

Thanks for taking the time to post, but $#@!, window washing? I can tell that is in an urban area. Heck, even the neighbor's kids all snow blow the other neighbors and elderly houses yards for free out here in rural land.

I think the key to finding ourselves work wise, is to do something that we love for profit.

In the case of an artist, it might be to paint or sculpt. Then sell the art work in exchange for coin of the realm.

I personally believe that if a person does something they truly love as their work, they will be successful beyond their wildest imagination.

Here is a little something to help anyone struggling with this concept.

Copy the following text and place it where you will read it several times per day.

"MONEY FLOWS EASILY INTO MY LIFE AS I DO WHAT I LOVE"

Here is another positive affirmation

"THIS WEEK I WILL EXPERIENCE A MIRACLE HAVING TO DO WITH MONEY".

So there you have it, find something you love to do for profit and go for it. Remember that what your mind conceives is what you will ultimately have.

peace

My suggestion would be Senior Services. So many older people need assistance in going shopping (because they cannot drive anymore) light housework, minor repair, yard work.

I watched my mother and her friends deal with this and wished so many times there was somebody reliable to help her. I lived far enough away I could only come once a week, and I was rushing to do things when really what we both wanted was to just enjoy the company. My case was not at all unusual.

These "thinking tools" Tesla handed you are indespendible, and two other "thinking tools", worry and discouragment, are sure to sink whatever you set out to do.

Your attitude is as important as your car or your trade tools. Even more important, as your car will wear out and your trade tools can get lost, broken, etc. Your Prosperity Consciousness will get stronger and more natural through the years.

I have seen these principles operate in my life and in others many many times. It may take some real practice to get these principles into action, but keep at it, you can turn your life around.

This is one of my favorite GLP threads. Thanks for bringing it to the forefront again, Phenn.

Have a good New Year, everybody.

Yep, worry and discouragement are two negative thought patterns that limit manifestation of great things.

So cancel the worry and negative self talk.

Another good one for constructing your new self is:

"DAY BY DAY, IN EVERY WAY; I AM BECOMING BETTER AND BETTER".

Read that to yourself, several times per day. It works.

springtime: seeds/plants are a big thing. seeds are cheap. some places charge 2.79 for one/two tomato plants. ive started seeds in my garage. when planting time comes i put the plants out on a table. they sell like hotcakes. flowers are HUGE sellers too. get the planters off freecycle. you can even get the soil too. people get rid of this stuff. **and your customers will come back every year.


Cant say enough how true this is... if you have any available space to grow food, do it. Keep what you need, sell the rest. This is as simple as putting an ad out there. We hold several sales at home throughout the growing season, to get the word out we only use free local advertising. Some people want full plants others want the harvest. Overall this can be a good supplemental money maker. The inner city poses bigger challenges but can be successful. Local grocers may buy from you as well. It is much cheaper to grow your own leafy greens and tomatoes than to buy them from a store, you are already saving yourself money.

I'm with OP, self sufficiency in anyway is most rewarding. Sure startup is always challenging but after those first few baby steps I bet you don't turn back. Keep in mind that this is an idea for supplemental income at first. I'm at a point now where I grow year round at very low cost. LED's have come along way baby.
