Making Money in the New Economy

Ways to make some extra cash while riding out these tough times:


1. Start a bank but refuse to lend money to anyone. I already do this at home and it's a pretty good business model. When my kids reach for my wallet I just say, "Sorry, the bank is closed for the day." I can't say my profits are that great, but no losses either.


2. Get together with three or four other families and move in together. Share the rent, grocery bill, utilities, lice and pneumonia.


3. Become a TV evangelist. Sort of a dying breed, but hey, you've always done your own thing.


4. 2 words - Potato Farm. If you grew just one really huge potato with 100 eyes, you could then plant the eyes and grow 100 new potatoes. Where else can you get that kind of return? On a related note, does anyone else think it's kind of spooky that potatoes have eyes?


5. Become president of the Human Fund. (That was for you, Connie, as a thank you for being one of my five loyal readers)


6. Turn this blog posting into a spiral bound mini-book and sell it on Craigslist.


7. Go door to door and....oh, wait, there's nobody living in any of those houses anymore.

I did have a different post up, but for some odd reason, when I went to post a new one, it was putting below the old one instead of above it, and I couldn't figure out how to fix it so I just deleted it.
