In today’s economic environment, it is not enough to just make money, but most of us would echo the refrain “I need to make money fast”. This long lasting, long winded, and very severe economy has really taken its toll on just about everyone. Even when things start to get better, it will probably be a slow recovery. We can’t make it fast enough, because we need it now. Most people are in this position, from the tenant who can’t pay the rent because of reduced hours at work, to the landlord who can’t pay his bills because he has not received the rent. Business is slow because customers just don’t have the discretionary income they had way back when. That same business owner has cut back on his discretionary spending, and that is why you may hear him saying “I need to make money fast”.
The old fashion and prudent way to make money is through hard work, consistent saving, and investing over the long term. Many smart, disciplined people have done that, and have seen their life savings swindle down dramatically. That is why the new mantra for this current generation is “I need to make money fast”. There are ways where money could be made quickly; unfortunately, it is usually not long lasting. Many times, the people who are seemingly making the fast buck have paid their dues through either years of education or hard work at an occupation or business.
Many people are one paycheck away from not being able to pay their rent, or mortgage. If there was an easy way to make money fast, this would benefit millions of people. Unemployment is too high, and not only do people need to work, but they need to make money fast. This has been a long, protracted and severe depression, disguised as a recession. While there is not a quick and easy answer for the masses, there are those who will profit from this adversarial time. Many people have become rich in down times. Real estate, among other things could be purchased at bargain prices. This is the time to buy. There is opportunity all around. The abundant life is available for those who believe and continue to search, seek, and knock.
The person who says “I need to make money fast”, will make more money, and make it faster than the person who says “There is no opportunity, why even try”. Many businesses and companies were started in tough economic times and through perseverance and persistence have become enduring successes. Fast money could be made. Look through the classifieds, check out Craigslist, ask around and network. Many people are out of work, but that is not a reason to be discouraged. Search for the abundant life and you will find opportunity. Within a few years people will be talking about the genius’ and go-getters who have become successful and made a lot of money. You can add your name to the list by starting now. The abundant life is waiting for you, go for it.
