My last article hinted at a variety of ways to make money. This time I’ll show you how you can use your pain to gain income. I’ll also introduce you to several businesses that will allow you to do that. In some cases, in multiple ways.
Are you someone who seems to have one problem after another, and sometimes half a dozen troubles all at once!?
I’ve got news for you! There are ways to use your pain to gain income; you CAN make money from your problems. A farming expression comes to mind – “Making Hay with our Pain.”
I did that with a room full of 75 pots and pails full of aloe vera plants. Way too many, I didn’t just want to dump them. I’d thought at first I would have to find a way to keep producing them, and selling them online, but I worried about how to ship them.
When Dad died I had to dispose of most of them, and move into a tiny house of my own in the city. Was I too late?
No. I built a website about aloe vera and can now make some money from affiliate links without having to package and sell any plants. No fuss, no muss. But my experiences and wisdom gained help me to counsel others in this area.
Maybe you have too much of something. Rooms full of used books?!
I’ve got an idea for that!
There is a video course called Book Boss, which teaches you how to make a business out of selling used books on Amazon.It helps you to recognize the really valuable finds and sell those for much more. Also how to clean used books up so you can market them as in excellent or nearly new condition. The owner of that video course now sells books by the pallet full!
Maybe you do not have enough of something, and you have learned to get around it by being creative and resource with what you do have at hand. (Necessity is the Mother of Invention).
For example, what if you have had to cope all your life with a handicap? Perhaps you have one injured or lame hand, and have to do everything with the other? Wouldn’t people who suddenly lose one hand soon be on the internet looking to see how to cope with just one hand? You probably have more answers for them than you realize. You’re way ahead in figuring out how to cope with one hand.
One man’s wife had an embarrassing health problem. I still don’t know what it was, but once they found the solution to that problem, the man put up a website. There he offered to provide information for the solution for a price. Naturally, he’s making lots of money!
All because others have that embarrassing problem too, and go searching online for answers.
If you have a certain point of pain, others do too. Find the solution to that problem and you can sell it to those looking for answers to the same problem. That is why health and wellness products sell so well.
Take weight loss solutions – they top the lists. Have you found one that really works? People who are desperate will try even weird things they never heard of before.
(Oh please, I beg you not to cheat those poor souls!)
What if you have become a coupon queen? You know what it is like to be super frugal to make ends meet. You have information to share that will help others in those shoes.
Now, lest you think that all my ideas involve building niche information sites (though that is one major idea), you could also promote free membership in Lyoness, and the use of the Lyoness rebate card.You can get rebates or certificates on almost everything you buy, and if you invite others to join under you, and they do the same, you will make an income from a pinch of all their rebates too.
One man did some research and the math and discovered that this is hands-down far more profitable than joining MLMs. (And Lyoness is a loyalty program, NOT an MLM company!) See my webpage, with that man’s video at the bottom of the page; Lyoness. It takes you through his discovery process.
Have you heard of eCommerce?
Selling things online without a physical store of your own, is growing by leaps and bounds globally each month and year! It is as huge as the Industrial Revolution was in the early 1900s! The ways to buy and sell are scaled up tremendously! This is going to affect almost everyone on planet earth!
If you are not afraid of work and understand the concept of selling physical items online, then you might want to consider getting into eCommerce. INFINii came on the scene in December 2015 with three levels of eCommerce, but they provide software so that if you do your selling – and drop-shipping – through the INFINii software, you can have much of this work streamlined for you, and the training videos – if obeyed – will help you make an excellent income here.
At the first, Prime level, you can easily make $500 to $1000 a month once you understand the system and how to work with it. I’ve heard of some who do it with just a couple of hours to half a day of real work to reach that level. At this level you are selling things on eBay and Amazon, or Bonanza, etc. Remember, you do no shipping. You get your purchasing source to drop-ship for you.
At Surge, the next level, you pay more, but you have many more options and your income level can increase to somewhere from $1000 to $10,000 a month. Here you can also be trained to set up your own store on a Shopify site, where YOU make the rules, and you don’t have to play within the rules that Amazon, for instance, sets up for sellers.
(Just the other day I heard of people setting up Shopify stores and flipping them for hundreds of thousands of dollars! Yikes!)
December 2016, INFINii announced the opening of something called MarketPlace. This is where they have made deals with many factories and producers. All levels can buy things wholesale from the MarketPlace, to sell at much higher prices on any of the other markets, or your own store, and MarketPlace will do your drop-shipping for you. In time MarketPlace will outstrip Amazon in what it does.
If you reach the third level you are a BIG BUSINESS OWNER!
Do you see now? You can sell without any heavy lifting, or wrapping parcels, or putting on postage or shipping via couriers – all that is done for you!
But say! Listen to this. Because buying and selling is ramping up so much, there is a growing need for PRODUCTS! Some people somewhere, have to start making them, and in large enough quantities to satisfy the demand world-wide. So if you are someone who can make something – and become your own little factory. Or, maybe grow to the place where you hire others to make them for you, then you need to contact the MarketPlace and make a deal to send all your products (if accepted) there, and the people doing eCommerce can buy and sell them from there.
Now, if you have money to invest, and want to make it grow for some special purpose, I would recommend INFINii’s Signal Forge.
Forex is “Foreign Exchange” when you exchange currencies between various countries.
Normally, if you get into this kind of trading in the world of finance, you need to study this for years and get all kinds of cautions built around your business. Furthermore, there are all kinds of fees, and you almost need to be a rich financier ALREADY before you step into this world. In fact, normally, I would warn you against this kind of business. Don’t go there!
It’s a kissing cousin of gambling in my mind.
However, the smart people at INFINii – such as Hitesh – have created software which makes this easier and much safer. They still advise you to be wise, not foolish, but you can be up and running in a day or two of watching their training videos, and then plunge in, and invest just a few hundred dollars, or $1000, and in a week or two, you can turn a profit. Now that floats up and down, but the software watches your pre-set limits, and will sell your investment quickly if it sense that you
might lose. This is NOT risk free, so you should only spent money you can truly spare. On average though, you can turn a profit anywhere, from about 27% to 56% and even up to 96%!
Signal Forge creates signals for those looking to make currencies exchanges, and it automates your trade, AND it provides bettter risk protection. This is the first and so far the only such a system in the world.
Many people are moving into this opportunity now, and doing very well! Often they do this from their smart phone and only need to make decisions for a few minutes at a time – maybe once or twice a day.
It is not free. Obviously, because you can expect to do very well! But you can choose to sign up for a month at a time, or 6 months, or a year. (A free month is thrown in with the 6 month plan, and 2 months with the 12 month plan).
However, I suggest that you don’t jump into Signal Forge until you have some spare money to invest. DO NOT use money from your cost of living budget! Earn some first and check this out very carefully, and make sure you have some self-control. Someone who has a tendency to gamble should stay away. You could go stupid here very easily!
Here is where I step in with a reminder that I live by Christian ethics. I hope you will too.
You understand what that means, right?
This is more than just being truthful, honest and kind in all our business dealings. Making hay with our pain may be a clever way of using what we have to create a profitable business, but we have to watch out for that demon Greed, which likes to sneak up on us when we are busy thinking about money and forgetting that we belong to Christ. If we are walking in the Light of His Word, we must remember to be Christ-like in even these decisions about what business ventures we will take up and how we handle them.
This is why strongly recommend some deep, prayerful thinking before you make decisions at all points along your online business. (Just as you should in a local storefront). Before you take the plunge and choose a business model is a good time for a few days of weighing the pros and cons and how it will affect your life, and your family. Pray, and ask God to give you clear insights and a sense of direction.
Then stop frequently to check in with the Lord, because you are making more decisions every day. At first they may seem scary but after a while you end up making so many you begin to feel you have the hang of this, and can run on your own feet now.
Watch out. At that point you are most subject to temptations and can veer off into a rabbit trail that turns out to be a trap for you.
Some Business mentors teach that you need to gain a great self- confidence and believe in the power of You. I say no, a spirit of humility and readiness to learn, and to research options carefully is far better. Your success may come more slowly like mine, but then, it is worth a great deal to me to have a clear conscience!
If you stick around with me, you’ll find me talking and writing like this from time to time. Maybe it is just the kind of help you need, eh? Then, let’s walk ahead together!
