Default Re: How to navigate the rough waters of Covid-19 storm. A COMPASS.

Yup.....I've spent my whole life "Looking for Opportunities" and not be dependent on a "JOB" or an "Employer". Ever since my first job, after a degree in Electrical Engineering from Northwestern Univ, General Electric hired me and 2 wks into the "JOB" a secretary at an office luncheon tells me...."Hey Don! Do you know you replaced a man who was fired after 29 1/2 yrs?

I checked and....she was right so....I went home and told me wife and she asked; "So...what are YOU going to do?"

I told her I was going to start my own biz....and 3 mos later I see an ad in the Wall Street Journal for someone to become a Dealer for a New Type of Home Alarm System.

I call the Co....get the details and become a Dealer for the Northern Suburbs of Chicago, give my 2 week notice to GE.... and start up a biz from scratch (Securitronics Corp....Security Thru Electronics)

And....15 yrs later, with 17 employees and a super successful biz....I sell it and move to Aspen, Co and start an Advertising Biz (Advantage Marketing) which I still have today.....and about 5yrs ago I got a domain name (Midas Reports dot com).....where I displayed 50 of my successful biz programs.

However....I let it lapse about a 2years ago BUT....with the present day conditions of businesses needing help with their biz AND....millions of people out of a "JOB"....I think I will re-ignite it.

Also.....the shutdown has caused my "Entroopreeners" brain to look for "opportunities" and 2 I've come up with has started to show ...success.

1) Helping FSBOs ("For Sale By Owner") Home Sellers to sell their homes by making "Video Tours" of their properties AND....posting the Videos on YouTube .....ranking for the ADDRESS....plus....offering a Unique Yard Sign that tells House Hunters to use their Phones to SEE my Video Tour of the property they're looking at....(go to YouTube and type in "732 Callahan Dr Roseburg, OR"....and see the FIRST Video that comes up!

2) People are still being injured .....car accidents or otherwise....and in need of a "Personal Injury Lawyer".....so....I put up a website that offers a FREE Report ....."7 Things You Should Know Before Hiring a Personal Injury Lawyer!" I got this website on the first page of G for certain Keywords and it has been getting an average of 5 Unique Downloads a Day....good enough for ONE Law Firm to want to PAY me for the Names & Emails.

Thus....their are LOTS of ways....one can earn money nowadays WITHOUT having to spend much moolah.
