We also encouraged our two teenagers to read the book to learn ways to make money. Our son loves to drive so he talked a restaurant owner into letting him make home deliveries. The idea has mushroomed and now it takes two drivers to deliver all the food orders.
Our daughter loves the outdoors and believe it or not, she even enjoys mowing yards. She advertised in our little neighborhood paper with a "Help Me Go To College" ad. She listed in bullet form all the things she can do to earn money: Mowing, raking and edging, weeding beds, planting flowers, caring for pets and lawns for out-of-towners. She got so many calls that she invited several of her friends to join her and make money.
Now for Andy and me. Using the technique described in 75 Ways to Make Money, we delivered phonebooks and made $1,117 in four days. Working as a team made the job go a lot faster. We made all the following phonebook deliveries too.
At Christmastime, we gave copies of this book to friends and relatives. My sister opened an image consulting business and my aunt, who stays at home with an invalid husband, now runs a clothes laundry in her home for retired or bedridden people and also for college students.
Andy and I also started a handyman business. We had magnetic signs made for our truck and also business cards that listed all the services we provided. We gave the cards to everyone we knew and put flyers on every bulletin board we found.Read more ›
If you have absoutely no clue about what a person can do for a business, this book might be of some small assistance in getting you started thinking about it. I don't find it to be of much more value than that.
I would recommend instead one of the more detailed books, like "The Best Home Businesses" by Paul and Sarah Edwards, or even a look at the Yellow pages of a large city. Then, do some serious research on the actual businesses that you think you would like to do.
Don't wait for a layoff to claim you before you get Sherry Everett's great guide to making money between jobs. Get it and put it to work for you NOW! More than a list of ways to make money, this book has valuable tips for making the most out of each method. I consider myself an expert on creative ways to make money, and I found surprises in this book.
You also get a lot of helpful suggestions about dealing with stress, what a spouse can do to help, and how to prepare yourself for the possibility of getting laid off. Anyone who is employed, unemployed or self-employed should read (and use!) this book.
Thanks to my brother's gift and to the author of this helpful book, I'm now making money and my depression is gone.
I've already put into action the moneymaking ideas that interested me. Thank you for renewing my belief that I can be successful in whichever moneymaking ways I select. I'll never again have to worry that my monthly bills are $300+ more than my paycheck.

This really is just a list of ideas, as another reviewer noted, and the ideas are the same you'd come up with if you were to make a list on your own. Read morePublished on May 29, 2007 by Meg F.
The book has one decent idea. Everything else you could pay a dollar and get it all off ebay. Nothing really special about book.Published on January 25, 2006 by B. Wilson
