12. I for one am taking money from the rich.
I suggest others do the same wherever they can find a way to do so. I live in a very affluent county, so I found a niche I can fill as a pet sitter and plant waterer when they go on vacation. It's a matter of being responsible and trustworthy and doing a little extra to get the referrals. In this day and age with all our electronic gadgets, I can send little videos every other day showing them what Fluffy and Fido are doing while they are on vacation. My clientele love it. It's something the other pet sitters don't do. It pays $10 plus mileage, which is a good job for a seventy year old lady like me. I intend to get more per hour in the future, once I establish a good rapport with a regular clientele, since I just started out doing this.
I believe this is the way to go. We, who are in need of jobs, need to find ways to make those people pay us for services or other ways we find to extract money from them. Another thing I thought of, if anyone has carpenter skills and a small space to work in, is as a closet and drawer organizer for rich people. You would need a small investment in tools, license and insurance. There are plenty of instructions on the internet to follow. I could see it as rather lucrative self-employed business.
Tell me why. Tell me true. How did I pick a lemon in a garden that I thought only peaches grew?
