Earning

$10,000 Reward: Will You Claim it?

On Saturday morning, July 16, the price on my 3 bedroom, Erie PA Cape Cod style house will return to US $115,000... from the much-too-low $89,000.

Anyone – agent or not – who refers a buyer to me whose offer of $115,000 or better is acceptable to me and successfully closes, will receive US $10,000 from me (check) shortly after the closing.

I will do the showing and negotiating. You get a reward – a finders fee – simply for the referral (not a lead).

IMPORTANT: You must tell me the name of the person who you are about to refer to me – before they contact me – so there is no question about who deserves the $10K reward. It's simply a safeguard so the right person receives the reward. Email: crisiswriter@gmail.com

24 Potential Revenue Streams So Far

Don't expect your income to come from only one source. That's "putting all your eggs in one basket." Drop the basket and all the eggs break. To protect yourself diversify your income portfolio. In other words, create multiple streams of revenue.

After my father died I discovered he invested 100% of his money in the stock market, nothing else. Had he diversified, he would not have lost more than a million dollars (85% of his portfolio) when GM went bankrupt. The Lesson: Diversify.

I screwed up, too. I invested all my savings in two houses. I have no mortgages, but I haven't been able to sell or rent them either. Like father, like daughter.

So, as of today, I've given up trying to sell the houses. (They won't sell themselves; that's magical thinking.) For now I will stay where I am. Instead, I'm putting my efforts and energy into creating multiple passive income streams, no matter how small.

I thought you would like to see how I'm creating income for myself, starting from 'way below poverty level. Let's see where I am at the end of 2016.
