Here are a few videos I recently came across in my never-ending
search for more ways to make money, starting with...
I have not covered begging as a way to make money before on
this website (or my others), but I have heard that it can be
lucrative if done right. So I was intrigued when I discovered
the following video. Who would have guessed that putting on a
tie can make your begging efforts more successful? That's just
one of the tips you'll get from this tutorial on how to beg for
The video could have been a bit longer, but it was full of
useful ideas in its minute and a half. And who knew that guys
were so generous?
I am thinking back to the last few time I have given money
to beggars, and as I recall, I have been more likely to give
to couples, especially if they have kids with them. It's something
to keep in mind if you decide to beg.
I wasn't sure what to call this next activity, but as they
say, one man's junk is another man's treasure, so that's the
first part of the title. The "arbitrage" part comes
from the fact that you can make a good profit from inefficient
markets by buying from people who want to get rid of things and
finding those who want these things. In this video from the "Urban
Diggers" you'll learn how to find salable items at rummage
I like the idea of going to neighborhood garage sales. It
makes the whole process much more efficient. Who wants to drive
all over town just to hit ten yard sales. Friendly negotiation
is obviously an important part of doing this, as the video demonstrates.
I'm not sure that a gold pan is really worth $25, but then
again, it was an old one that might be of value to some collector.
I wish they had said more about where they were going to sell
the items they bought.
Make Money From Trees
Money may not grow on trees, but trees can be made into money
according to the video here. Of course, you do need to own some
land first... Or do you? Perhaps you could help a friend with
land make money with trees, in exchange for a share of the profits.
In any case, there are some interesting ideas here...
I don't know about the government programs that pay you to
grow trees. As a taxpayer I hope that ends soon, but you might
as well take advantage of it while it lasts. I like the bit on
saving money with trees, because I have always felt that saving
money is in some ways better than making more. If you make another
$1,000 you will be taxed on that. If you spend $1,000 less without
sacrificing too much, you get to use all of it for any other
purposes you might have.
