Tip #2: Start a side busines

If you are down and out like most people are today, then get out there and make some money! There is a huge pie of money out there waiting for you to get a slice of so starting your own side business is a very good way to get a slice of that pie. Some people might have a problem choosing what to do for a side-business, but you should always concentrate on what you are good at. Can you fix a sink? Maybe you have a great lawn mower in your backyard that has not been used in weeks and someone out there is dying to find someone with a hefty lawn mower to pay them to do a job. Whatever it might be, starting your own side business can bring in some extra cash to pay some bills, expedite your savings goals, or to invest and earn more. Here are some suggestions on what you can do.

- Babysitter Services - Change a diaper
- House/Building Cleaning Services - Wash windows
