Default Ideas for 40+ folk, addressing email question.

Over 40?
I got to get basic.

You don't get paid for doing nothing.

The more in need of money you are, the more likely you are going to have to do something you don't want to do.

Easiest and fastest money maker? Sell some of your stuff. Don't want to part with your junk? Provide a service.

A kid (or adult) in the winter offering to shovel snow from drives and walks, this works, I WAS that kid. Did I like shoveling snow? Heck no, but I did like the money.

Buying and selling has been my go to mantra for decades. But, there are other ways, none of them are DO NOTHING and make money ways however.

Friend of the forum Steve DiMarco is still doing well with both menu boards for quick cash (only 3 ads on it) and BUSINESS CARD CONNECTIONS for larger amounts of cash, and still in only a few days time.

But that requires selling, going out seeing the people, showing them the goods.

Headlight cleaning? Still viable. But unless you have a location like Bud Riggs had, a carwash, and even then he APPROACHED people to offer his service.

Listen, we know of thousands of ideas, literally, on how to make money.

But we (Dien and I) don't know of ANY, where you get paid for doing nothing.

I guess it falls to a question of how desperate or needy are you and if time is not a factor, where you have a job, a roof, food, etc. and there is no urgency, then keep looking, you may find something.

If that is not the case, then it is time to be DOING. And doing anything beats doing nothing.
