Just a little update to begin with……last week I spoke to you about how you can find temp work while on the road and today I am writing to you from a temp assignment that I picked up in Omaha. I am working as a receptionist for a real estate office. So yes it can be done!
I am currently looking for more temp work outside of Omaha since this assignment is only for this week. Maybe Des Moine, IA or Kansas City, MO. This is the nice thing about temp work…..I’m not tied to one area and since these areas are only a few hours away it is easy for me to look while I’m in Omaha and then drive there IF I get an assignment.
Today I want to talk to you about two really great places to get ideas (outside of the box ideas) on how to make money.
1. I have mentioned this site more than once before but it is such a great site that I think it bears repeating…… The Rat Race Rebellion is a site that searches for work from home jobs and researches them to make sure they are legit. If you go to their site make sure you sign up for their email alerts. I get an email from them every day with interesting work opportunities. And you might just be surprised at what kinds of jobs are on the site……I’m not necessarily talking about low level jobs here. You will find everything from mystery shopping to openings for engineers.
2. Another site that I love to troll is actually a YouTube site. The guy who makes these videos is called KingHuman so if you go to the main page and put his name into the search box you will come to his YouTube “home page” and will be able to see all of his videos. Now I have to warn you he can be a little on the obnoxious side but I think he has some really great out of the box ideas!
He makes more than just videos on how to make money so you will have to sift through his videos to find the ones specific to making money. When I came across him on YouTube I spent an entire week watching each and every one of his “making money” videos (I think they went back to 2008) and I was just amazed at the stuff he came up with. Just like the Rat Race Rebellion he gives a very wide range of things to do….. it isn’t just online computer type stuff.
One of my very favorite videos from KingHuman I wish I could pull off myself because it just sounded like a lot of fun but I think I’m really a little too old to pull it off! His idea consisted of buying a bunch of flashing, light up items, such as rings, from a wholesale distributor and then selling them at a bar/rave/party/festival etc. He wasn’t talking about setting up as a vendor or having a stall or anything like that…..he was just talking about walking into a bar wearing the stuff and when people asked where he got it he said “oh I have some here in my bag….you want one??”. I just love that idea….it sounds like fun. I thought maybe my kids would have fun with that…..but they aren’t quite as adventurous as me!!
The other thing you should know about these videos is that they are not 100% “tell me how to do it” type videos. He is real big on telling you to do your due diligence and figure it out. Basically this is a way to get ideas…..things you might not ever have heard of before……expand your mind……maybe you can take one of his ideas and put your own spin on it.
