It’s official we’re in a recession – OK, so we’re screwed, right?


Just because we are experiencing a bad economy – scratch that – a recession does not mean you can not make money. It just means that money isn’t flowing as freely as it did before. In the recent past, money (or may I say credit) was effortless. People was throwing it at you and you were throwing it right back out, getting the things you wanted . . . brand-named clothes, new gadgets, shiney cars, pretty fingernail tips . . . well, that’s over.

Okay, that’s the bad news.

The good news is, money (actual money) can still be made. The wonderful thing about a recession is, when you make money this time, you have incentive to SAVE (actually KEEP some of the money you earn).

Wait. So, how do you gain money if people are clutching their money tighter than a pair of skinny jeans on a 15-year-old at a Kanye West concert?

The fact of the matter is, people still need to spend money. Maybe not on frivolous stuff like 72 inch flat-screen TVs or $300 hand-held devices that purr when you pet it – yeah, they may not be spending on those things. But there still are basics like clothes, food, shelter, transportation, heat/light/water. You know, the things that keep you and me alive. Somehow, you need to become an integral part of “the things that keep us alive” – the basics that we will purchase, even in bad economic times.

How do we do this? Well first of all you have to change your thinking or better yet, change your whole mental direction.

As the Great Bruce Lee says . . . be like Wah-tah! (water)
