Start Earning Extra Money Before You Get Downsized

Aug 20, 2008
Many people are concerned about their job with the faltering economy and high gas prices. Retail stores are doing poorly because people are not spending as much as they used to. Restaurants are underperforming because people are staying at home to save money. Even people with jobs are having a hard time paying the high price of gas just to get to work. Almost every area of our economy is doing poorly and many people are concerned it will affect their jobs.

Rather than sit around and worry, now is the time to become proactive. Sitting around complaining is not going to change anything and is a waste of time. Now is the time to start looking for a second job or even better, ways to make money on the side to tide you over.

There are many things you can do to earn a little extra money and now is the time to start. In fact, now is probably already too late but it is better to get started now than wait. You can find a part time job at home or after work by working for a call center. You can start cleaning your house and start selling things like DVD's that you never watch anymore. You can ask your friends and neighbors if they need their lawn mowed or taken care of. You can develop that hidden talent that you always knew you had and see if there is a market for it. The more you brainstorm, the more ideas you will probably come up with.

The best idea of all is for you to start learning how to begin a business on the Internet. Learning how to make money online will be slow but you can learn for free. In reality, you can get started learning and earning without ever spending a dime. All it takes is perseverance and persistence. There are many free resources on the Internet that will teach you and give you ideas of how to get started. I know because I did it.

Now is the perfect time to start thinking of new options just in case some day down the road you get that bad news that your company is downsizing. You might even discover a second career you never knew was available that you like more than the one you have now. Whatever it is you choose to do, take this opportunity to learn new skills and open new paths. You need to be prepared just in case bad news does come your way and if you have that second job, the shock won't be as traumatic.
