It doesn’t matter what the news says or what the “economy” does. We are the economy. And I don’t know about you, but everywhere I look people still need things. And if you don’t have a skill, learn one! YouTube play lists and local libraries are free! I created this blog to help people establish themselves. And below is the procedure in practice of how I was able to finance my college degree without going into debt. Follow the steps below!

1. create a Google account and make a free web site to advertise

2. Post a Craigslist ad offering your services

3. Spam all your friends “literally” and ask them for business and also have them share your link on their Facebook, Twitter, etc.

4. Run to EVERY Starbucks, local church, and ANY public bulletin board and post your flyer. But pick a catchy title.
For example: Fix ANY PC problem for 25$, THAT IS ALL YOU EVER PAY! Be sure to  only take on jobs that I know I can fix for that price. So I am killing geek squad!

5. Make a YouTube channel with tips and tricks. That is a fantastic way to get advice/network and get more content to put on your social networks. ( That is how the founder of this website started.)

Word of mouth is the BEST form of advertisement, and it is FREE!
“Every time you are not advertising, you are NOT inviting people to do business with you.”

“But what can I do?”
Well, I am glad you asked!
If you are PC savvy, do geek squad work, but only charge 25$ per hour. Use your own individual judgment and position yourself at the point to where it only takes you one hour or so do complete the job. BOOM! Do that 4 times a day you’ve just made an easy 100$ per hour. (But it is up to you to learn, and perfect your skill) If you are just starting out, do some volunteer work for the experience.
Here is a great book that can really help you figure out what you love to do.

But I don’t know how to work on computers?
Well silly, the same concept applies towards anything.
Cell phone repair
Build web sites
teach computer lessons (Word Excell)
learn to make mobile apps
I wonder if a local church would pay you to stream their church service on YouTube for them.  Only one way to find out!

You would be amazed at what skill you can perfect if you spend just a few hours a week practicing and maybe following a mentor.

Here’s the trick! Do the job at a lower cost than everyone else and do the job BETTER than everyone else!

Good luck!

Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn’t matter to me . . . . going to bed at night saying we’ve done something wonderful . . . that’s what matters to me.

Supporting NOTES:
Find your inner strengths

The greatest among you shall be your servant.
-Matthew 23:11 ESV   ( It just so happens, this can get you rich!)
