to make Extra Bucks while riding around in my boss's Truck?"
(EDITORS NOTE - I could hear his "Boss" in the back ground saying, "Hey, We're
lost. I could use some help here.")
I told Mike to Watch out for Affluent Homes with Trees Growing in the Rain
He can Knock on the door. Say, "If you don't clean your rain gutters they will
rip off the house. And water will flood your basement."
OFFER to Clean the gutters himself.
WHILE THERE - he will Get invited inside for a Cold Drink. And find all kinds of
other BROKE STUFF.
Cuz The Kind of Affluent Person (or Family) who has no time to Clean Their Rain Gutters has no time to Get Home appliances and other stuff done either.
SELL THE LEADS.
Mike called back.
He quit his job.
Is doing the Rain Gutter Referral Strategy himself. Driving around Florida
in ritzy neighborhoods.
P.S. - I couldn't believe he was Pumping me for moolah making ideas
for HIMSELF - right in front of his boss!
Thanks for sharing the story and the ideas!
That Mike sure has some cojones of steel...!
But I guess cojones of steel is what you need as an ex-soldier, and also to find out how to make moolah while riding around in your boss's truck!
Awesome... thanks Glenn!
For those who need a little extra cash and have a handyman streak, this is a pathway to salvation!
