I've been there before.
A giant stack of bills on your desk.
Your boss is blowing up your inbox.
Your spouse is asking the scary questions.
“Did you pay the mortgage this month?”
“We have a late notice, did you see this”?
Stressed is the polite way of putting it.
You feel like you're DROWNING!
The real question is…
What are some quick ways to make cash in a bind?
Gentleman today I am going to give you 5 ways to make $1,000 in a week.
Why Do People Spend Their Money?
So how the heck do you even make money?
Before we cover what you can do we need to address the root problem.
What causes people to hand over the dough? There are a couple steps to this.
#1 You need to solve a burning problem – People pay for convenience. At the end of the day, if you can make someone's life easier with a solution, you will make money.
However, this is part one of the formula. There's another part to the equation.
#2 It helps to solve the problem for someone who has a history of paying.
Who better to solve a problem for than someone who has a track record? Here's an example of people who have a history of paying.
- Individual Business Owners
#3 Your motivation needs to be strong enough
What's your why?
I have a family. We want our dream home, time to spend together, and the freedom to travel. If I don't make money I can't provide for them.
#4 Get Rid Of Distractions.
If you want to create solutions you need to focus.
Get rid of mindless time wasters. Turn off the TV, schedule everything out, turn off notifications, and say no to the small things.
#1 Seek Work & Opportunity
Go out and ask for work. You'll be surprised what people say.
I just paid a guy $200 for 2 days of work in my backyard that I had neglected to do for 2 years. He followed the formula.
- He solved my problem
- For Me (A business owner)
- He was focused on finding work
- He was motivated
Another example is Steve. He is my handyman that is proactive he points out issues and fixes them for me.
He is my handyman that will show up and point out issues he finds and fix them for me. There's a degree of trust there so I know the problems are legit, but he is proactive about finding them.
The point is if you are out there seeking jobs and chasing down opportunities you will find it. Fortune favors the brave.
#2 Get Paid Up Front
Positive cash flow is the goal.
You can't pay the bills with a stack of unpaid invoices. Before you do work for anyone, collect!
Or at least collect a percentage of the work. Tell people that you require 50% up front before you will start the job because you've been shafted in the past.
That way you're spending your time coming up with solutions to other people's problems and not your own. The more problems you solve for people the more word of mouth spreads.
Opportunities will start to flow in and you will have money before you even get a chance to send the invoice.
One man's trash is another man's treasure.
Sell the valuables that have been collecting dust in your garage for years. Chances are someone on eBay or Craigslist will need what you have.
It could be
- Desk chairs
- Old collectors items
Just because it's no longer valuable to you doesn't mean someone else can't benefit from it.
#4 Niche Down & Specialize In A Business
What skills do you have?
I hear tons of students say…”I'm 19 I don't have any skills”
Yet he just aced his SAT's and got into a top tier college. Sounds like he has a skill.
Maybe you're OCD and everything needs to be spic and span around the house. People will pay to have that attention to detail to their house too.
If you have a special skill turn it into a business!
#5 Take Your Problem Solving Virtual
Do the local markets in your area suck? Solve people's problems online.
The most common rebuttal I hear is…
“I would love to start a business online, but I have NO IDEA what I could start a business in.
