How do you get money?
There are only a few proven ways.
One is you could find it. Go out looking, and hope you get lucky.
This CAN work, but it’s not very sustainable.
You could get it as a gift. This strategy tends to work for little kids around their birthday.
Adults, not so much.
You could steal it, (or otherwise con people) but that’s not very sustainable either.
You could just walk up to people and ask for it, but people tend to be a little sketchy when strangers walk up to them on the street and ask them for money.
And supposed they asked, “OK, what do I get?”
Turns out, this is actually the most consistent way to get money.
Just figure out what people want, and figure a way to get it to them.
Everybody has problems they need solving.
The more effectively YOU can solve their problems, the more you can get paid.
It’s actually pretty simple.
Aside from government coercion and corruption (of which there is plenty, unfortunately) this same method is how most fortunes were made.
Old school railroad guys solve the problem of travel.
Before they railroads were made, travel was slow.
The problem was, “I want to visit grandma in Kentucky, but it will take us a week to get there.”
Railroad people who solved this problem made a ton of money.
They made it easy to get to Kentucky (or wherever) in a couple of hours instead of a couple of days.
What about JK Rowling, the Harry Potter lady.
What problem did she solve?
“I’m bored, there’s nothing on TV.”
Everybody has a collection of experiences, an imagination, and ideas on how to help others.
And everybody also has a collection of problems that need solving.
Combine those together in an information age, and you’ve got a MASSIVE global economy.
Get in the game, and get paid.
