One poster at Glocktalk forums was curious as to how money can be made during periods of difficulty like the one developing now in USA these days.
It may seem hard, even impossible, to make money, even get rich, thanks to the crisis but it is possible and some people did in fact get VERY rich.
Many saw the opportunities created by the crisis and made money out of it.
As the infrastructure starts having difficulties, there’s a market to be satisfied.
FIVE BUSINESS IDEAS
1)Public schools have been going steadily down in quality? There’s a market for cheap or medium priced private schools that offer a batter education and safety environment.
I know two persons that started with daycare centers some years ago ( mommy now has to work too!!) and today own a school that takes half a block.
It takes little investment, you can start in your own house.
2)High Crime? There’s an entire industry there. Home security, private guards, bodyguards, private neighborhood security.
3)Public Health sucks? Some people are willing to pay for things they consider important, staying alive is one of them.
4)Private health companies made lots of money, even the small ones that started out with just a small building, minimum equipment and a handful of doctors.
5)You don’t have that kind of money?
Look at gas prices. Do you think people can afford that much longer? Even if they could, Saving money and still traveling comfortably is a nice idea.
Some people have gotten filthy rich offering charter services from the suburbs to downtown. Picking office workers during the morning and taking them back home at 6 PM.
They started out with just one van, and now have entire fleets and they are completely booked, people have to wait months to get a seat.
Use your head people.
