All right, so let’s get into some creativecash flow ideas. The first thing that you’re going to wantto do is take an audit of what you have andwhat you need. This time is giving us so much perspectiveon what do we actually need in our home?And there’s a bunch of crap that I don’t needin my house. The first thing that I’m kind of thinkingabout doing is selling my stuff. And we’ve, I mean, my fiance and I have beendoing this for years. We’re pretty minimal, and so we like to ensurethat we are giving away or donating or sellingour things when we don’t need them. Are there things in your house that you reallyjust aren’t using anymore and you’re probablynever going to use again?Like that old workout bike in your basementor those snowboards and skis. Maybe you want to upgrade next year so tocreate some cash flow you can sell them now. Maybe you have a TV that you don’t use ora computer that you don’t use. Take an audit of your house, just walk aroundand really take note of anything that youcould sell, that’s immediately going to makeyou feel more abundant because you realizethat there’s things that you don’t need thatyou could be selling for cash. That’s the first thing. The next thing is to sell your skills. I recently made a video on how to start yourwork from a home job today and step-by-stepwalk you through how to create an online educationbusiness. Whatever it is that you do or good at, youcan turn that into an online course or youcan sell it digitally or virtually. That’s a really big trend right now you wantto check out that video if you can. But I also know that some of you sell physicalproducts. So my soon to be sister-in-law inspired thisidea and you can actually check out this littleclip right here. She has an amazing skill for baking and shewas selling her baked goods. And unfortunately due to everything that’sgoing on, she wasn’t able to do that anymoreso she got creative. And you can see that they were dropping offbaked goods to their friends and their family. And of course she wasn’t charging for thisat this time, but this is something that sheabsolutely could be charging for because somany people are in need of some snacks intheir house and some good home-cooked foodand meals. There are a lot of bums out there that willthank you a lot for making meals for themand they will pay for them. Because you have to think about the fact thatwe are still having to go grocery shopping,we’re still having to buy food. If you can take that off, that’s filling aneed and that’s what entrepreneurs do. That’s one thing. And then the biggest thing is to go back toyour past clients or anybody that you’ve workedwith in the past and ask them how you canhelp. And if you’ve never had a business before,ask your family and friends, is there anythingthat you need help with right now?Because I definitely would love to help youguys in any way I can and honestly I am inneed of cash flow. So if there’s anything I can do that I couldtrade for some cash, that’d be great. And that’s just being humble and honest andhumility is a key right now to ensuring thatyou can have some cash flow in your bank. You don’t need all the things, you don’t needyour ego attached to a bunch of things andyou don’t need to be so egotistical that youcan’t ask for help or tell people that you’rein need of some extra cash. Because people will pay you if there’s a bigenough need. That’s one thing. So ask, ask your clients if you had a physicallocation before, is there a way that you couldhelp them now?I know I’ve mentioned my trainer is doingonline classes and yes, people are payingfor online virtual classes, fitness classesbecause people still need to work out. People are paying for things, they’re justmainly paying for things online. Think about how you can get creative and howyou deliver what you do online or get creativeand how you deliver it in person like my soonto be sister-in-law did. And some creative ideas that I’ve seen thathave been so inspiring to me are things likepainting classes that people are doing viaZoom and they’re dropping off the little kitsat people’s houses, just leaving them outin front of their front door. There’s also things like cooking classes. You can do that via Zoom and again, you caneven package up exactly what people need,do the grocery shopping for them, deliverthem at their door. There’s so many things that you can do tobe creative right now. And with so many people home with kids, thingslike home decor sets or craft supplies orcrafting kits or even photo booth suppliesare things that people are buying. If you go on Etsy there’s a ton of thingsthat are flying like hotcakes right now, areselling like hotcakes because parents arein need and just people in general are inneed. I actually just heard from a friend of minethat their lingerie store is booming at themoment. So you want to just think about what peopleare doing at home and how you can help. And the next thing that I’ve seen that I absolutelylove is if you’re a photographer or a contentcreator, this is a strange time and some peopleare going to want to capture and rememberthis because it’s a little bit bizarre andeverybody’s together. People keep talking about how excited theyare because they’re with their family or they’rewith their loved ones, so capture those memoriesfor them. And you can do that from a distance. People are doing things like stoop photographywhere families will just sit on the frontsteps of their stoop and have their photostaken or have a little video taken. If you’re a content creator, you can absolutelystill find ways to monetize what you do rightnow. The next thing you can do, so we’ve soldierstuff, soldier skills, and now you’re goingto sell your sweat equity. What do I mean by that?This is the time to position yourself as anexpert and an influencer because you can investin yourself and you can put yourself out there. You’ve got the time to do it. One prime example of this, and keep in mindthis is going to pass, so the more that youcan show up right now, the more people aregoing to want to come to you after this isall over and hire you for different things. I’ve said this before and I said it in thisvideo about how to start your work from homejob today or work from home business today,repetition equals revenue. The more you repeat what you do and talk aboutwhat you do, the more people are going toknow what they can actually pay you for. D-Nice, who is incredible and I’m obsessedwith Club Quarantine if you haven’t done iton Saturday nights, he does these Instagramlives where he DJs. And he was a well known DJ before, had likea couple 100,000 followers, but overnightwhen he did the first Club Quarantine, justdoing a live DJ show from his house on Instagramlive, he grew by millions of followers, millions. And he’s continued to do what any did it justto show up and share his skillset with theworld. Can you imagine the opportunities that aregoing to come his way?After this he had Oprah and Michelle Obamaat his very first Club Quarantine live DJsession. People now know who he is because he showedup and that’s going to pay off in dividendsafter this is all over. How can you show up and position yourselfas an expert?Whether that’s putting on free classes rightnow or showcasing your skillset online throughsocial media, that is building your sweatequity and it’s going to pay off. And if you want to find a skill set that youshould invest in to create profitable skills,make sure you do watch this video on The HighPaying Work From Home Jobs that I recommend. They do take some time to build up your skillsetso use this time to do so. The next thing is to create cash flow. You’re probably thinking to yourself, “IfI could do that I wouldn’t be watching this. “But I mean it, it’s just like time. Do you know the amount of time that we wasteon social media or doing things we reallydon’t need to be doing just because we’retrying to avoid doing the thing we need todo?It’s a lot. When you take a time audit you realize justhow much time you actually have availablebut you’re not using. Same thing with money. I can guarantee you that you have an opportunityto create more cash flow you’re just not surehow to do it. I had The Budgetnista on my podcast recentlyand she’s an acclaimed financial expert, she’samazing at what she does. And she talked about the fact that right nowis not the time to be paying off debt entirely. Just be making your minimum payments becauseyou don’t want your cash flow going towardsdebt. You want to keep cash liquid so you can actuallyuse it during this time and then you can goback to making bigger payments after thisis over. But for right now, don’t pay your debt infull at the moment because that’s going tofree up some cash. Also, are there expenses that you’re payingfor that you just don’t need to?Again, it’s auditing the things you’re payingfor that you don’t need. Look at your past credit card statements andrealize that you’ve got so many subscriptionsthat you’ve signed up for, or apps that you’vesigned up for that you just don’t need rightnow. And that’s going to free up 10, 20, 50, 100,several hundred dollars for you on a monthlybasis to create more cash flow. If you watched this video on how to buildfinancial freedom, I broke down the conceptof runway. And runway is understanding what are yourbare minimum costs on a monthly basis to justbe comfortable and to be able to live. And that’s all you need to be putting asideright now and ideally you have three to sixmonths put aside. In order to do that you need to free up thatcash flow and that does mean cutting out anyunnecessary expenses and anything that’s notbringing you a return. When I say invest in profitable skills andinvest into yourself, that’s something that’sgoing to pay off in the long run. But that random email subscription that yousigned up for that you never use is not goingto pay off for you. Anything that’s not going to have a returnon your investment, cut it. The next idea to create some cash flow isbeing an affiliate, and this is somethingthat I’ve talked about a lot and especiallyI talked about it recently in this video onhigh cash flow, passive income ideas. And being an affiliate is a great way to createcash flow without having to build somethingyourself. Is there a product or a service that you canactually sell on behalf of somebody else rightnow and take a cut from it?One really creative idea that I actually heardfrom The Budgetnista on my podcast was aboutthis woman who’s a hairdresser and she’s actuallyselling wigs to other hairdressers to helpthem style them, et cetera. Then when those hairdressers sell them they’regetting a cut of those wigs. That’s a really creative way to help womenright now, or men, who are having issues withtheir hair. My roots are going to be down to here by theend of this, I can’t even. . . That’s a great way, that’s thinking outsidethe box for a service and a need that peoplehave right now that they really want to stilllook good but their hair might be a hot messexpress like mine is going to be shortly. The next thing is a flash sale. I’m not usually a huge proponent of doingflash sales cause I think it can devalue yourproduct or service, but during these timesit makes sense. One, because you’re helping other people bygiving them access to your program or servicethat actually is really valuable, and two,it creates an influx of cash for you. Think about Black Friday sales, Cyber Mondaysales, kind of the same thing right now. Do a big discount so you can get people inthe door and to create some cash flow insideof your business. And then the next thing is buy one, donateone offers. There are a lot of people in need right now,health care workers, underprivileged familiesthat really could use some help. Businesses that are creating offers whereit’s you buy one of these and I’m going togive X amount to this person in need or I’mgoing to give this same thing to this personin need, that encourages people to buy fromyou as opposed to anybody else. Think about a charitable aspect as well thatyou can use to donate your products and servicesto other people while still bringing in cashflow to keep your business afloat.
