​​​Making Money from $cratch
Let’s call it what it is. Let’s be honest with ourselves. Being broke is depressing. People say, “money isn’t everything.” That may be true, but let’s face it … you can’t eat without money.  You can’t have a roof over your head without money. You just can’t live without money.  That’s why they call it “making a living.” 

I have been there. I have found myself broke and in debt several times in my life. I know what the depression is like.  What the self-defeating voice sounds like, “you are broke and useless!”

No one needs to live like this! But what are we to do? I mean, if you’r broke, you go find a job right? Then you work as much as possible to get yourself out of the hole you’re in right? Well, what if that’s not enough? What if a measly $8 an hour job just does not do the trick? Sometimes you just need a side hustle. And hopefully, your side hustle makes more than your nine to five job and you can turn your side hustle into a small business and call yourself an ENTREPRENEUR.

"How to Sell Unwanted Items on eBay"

   
In my experience, when you are broke, you start small. You start by looking around. Looking around at your physical world, your house, your apartment, your room. What do you have in your presence that has VALUE? For example: small electronics, clothes, shoes, collector’s items, art, books, CDs, DVDs, etc. Second question: do you really need those valuable items? This is where you need to be 100% honest with yourself. If you haven’t used it in six months, do you really need it? You may be sitting in the midst of a couple of hundred dollars.

Once you sell your unwanted items and find yourself with a couple hundred dollars in your Pay Pal account, it’s time to move onto the next phase. I don’t care what anybody says … here’s the cold, hard truth: IT TAKES MONEY TO MAKE MONEY; however, it does not take a LOT of money. There are many small business you can start with only a couple hundred dollars.  For example, it costs less than $100 to start a curb address painting business. I know because I did it. You can paint a $20 address in 15 minutes! Do the math on that.

The more money you make, the more money you have to invest in the next subsequent phases. Here is the point of this article: going from “broke” to “prosperous” is a process. Selling your unused items on eBay will not make you rich; neither will painting addresses on curbs. These are merely steps along the way. Each step should take you to a higher earnings bracket, but it all starts with a positive mindset. Realizing that you are just in each phase until you can make enough money to invest in the next phase. You can’t invest in real estate after painting a couple of curbs. There are several phases between painting curbs and buying your first rent house. That’s where MonetizeAll.com comes in.
