Nothing is impossible for those who are resourceful and persistent. This statement also applies to making money in a bad economy. As long as you keep your wits about you, earning cash is going to be pretty easy.

You may have a hard time believing me, but times have changed. Don’t go around with your grandparents’ sensibilities. Today, you can overcome any obstacle life presents you.

So how do you go about making money in a bad economy? Read this article to find out.

1) Put up a small business.

If no one’s hiring you, why not start your own business instead? Stop thinking negatively and just go with what your heart tells you. Where does your passion lie?

If you have a fondness for animals, you can start a dog-walking business; or if you have enough capital, even your own petting zoo! Are you a shopping enthusiast? Why not start your own personal shopping business?

The opportunities are endless! Just take a look at the people in your own neighborhood. They’re proof that making money in a bad economy is very possible.

2) Focus on service quality.

If you already have your own business, then you know that competition has become stiffer since the economy started sliding down. However, this should not discourage you from taking care of your venture.

In fact, competition should compel you to work even smarter to prove that your business is the ideal choice. In this case, it is very important that you focus your attention on the kind of service you offer. People, no matter how little they have, will always find a way to squeeze in the one that gives them excellent service.

3) Hold a garage sale.

Making money in a bad economy is not always about investments and business ventures. Sometimes, it merely involves selling some of your unwanted stuff to others who are willing to pay you good money for it.

By holding a garage sale, you not only earn money, you also get to discard many (if not all) of the clutter inside your house. Psychologically, this also enables you to be open to new beginnings. And perhaps, even help open your eyes to new opportunities for making money!

Making money in a bad economy is downright possible. Money circulates. It does not stay in one hand for long. The trick is to understand how to get that money to return to you.
