I know there are a ton of threads all over the place, but I don't have time to sift through the SERP.

    Put "I will write / do anything for $40 to my Paypal" into your sig.. that should do it..

    BTW, where are you driving that it costs $40 to get there and back?? Gas is way cheap in the US!

    Unless you mean it only costs $40 to fill your tank.. in which case I'm sickened by how cheap it is. I have a tiny car and it costs about $100 to fill it..

      Write a short report (about 6 pages long) showing warriors how to do something specific. Include a recommendation at the end promoting something that's relevant that you're affiliated to.

      Give it away in the War Room or offer a free WSO.

      Use DigiResults affiliate program (they pay instantly using Paypal). You'll soon make $40.

      But then she won't get the money until at least a week from now.

      Can you do ten things on Fiverr? (I say ten, not eight, because I believe you'll only get $4 of the $5 bids)

        she could have like a garage sale then.... or maybe put up ads on craigslist,usfreeads and sell it fast.

        Edit: fiverr takes like 14 days before you can collect the cash.....so yea..

      Presactly - and even if, for instance, there is a one-day eBay listing or "buy it now", there is still a gamble that someone may not pay on the day and probably a cut-off time when today's transactions appear tomorrow, for instance.

          Exactly - offer to do something for them! Or, if you live next to a couple different neighbors, offer a $20 service to two of them. Not sure they'd be receptive, but if they like you, they might want to help out your cause.

            Most of the plr books I have come with a prebuilt page already. Just use that page and make that the special at the end of that 6 page report. If you can sell a decent product for less then 10 or so you should be able to get alteast 4 buyers in a few hours.

        Robbing old people is fine too, they're almost as defenseless.

        Seriously though, selling something you don't use anymore is your best bet.

        Otherwise put whatever skill you have in your sig and offer them at an absurd discount (30 articles for $40.00! Next 2 hours only!) and someone will probably take you up on it.

      That's against the rules of every forum on the net.

      One other thing; Do you have a Paypal Debit Card? If not, nothing that you do online is going to make a money transfer go any faster. It's 2-3 days no matter what.

      A job interview isn't necessarily the most important thing in life. If you read the thread you'd see she has to pick her husband up from the airport because other arrangements fell through. What's she supposed to do, just leave him there and let him walk home??? Catch a cab perhaps - oh wait that would probably cost more than $40!

    Listen, I know some of you are being negative nellies on here and flaming me, I fully expect that and I shouldn't have to explain myself to a bunch of strangers on the internet I don't know.

    I am grateful to all members of the community here for assisting me in what was an emergency situation. I'm not one to go around proclaiming my woes or beg. I had a certain time frame that I needed money in and that was accomplished due to a very kind Warrior here. I understand where you are coming from with the whole laziness thing, but please understand that this was an immediate situation and I simply didn't have the time at hand.

    All things take time, I asked for ideas and I got them. If you have issue with me, then please say so.

      If you didn't have enough time to search then I don't know how you would have enough time to make $40.

      It sounds like the only thing you had enough time to do was post and ask for the $40.

      Lots of people come here asking for handouts.

      You can call us negative nellies all you want. At least some of us are honest.

        If you read through the thread, I specifically did NOT ask for $40. I asked for quick cash ideas because I had this specific situation. I happily divulged WHY I needed to make said cash, but still others are saying I'm lazy and asking for a handout.

        I'm not in this forum crying that I can't make it work, I do make it work and will continue to. Thank you for the other thread by the way. I work hard and take action, but sometimes situations and actions are unavoidable.

          No, I am saying you were lazy based on your first OP. You stated you knew there were threads that addressed your problem yet were not going to look for them because you didn't have the time.

          You seem to have enough time to continue posting here.

            I'm on the East Coast and have already made my trip. I had exactly 2 and a half hours to make money. I was lucky, yes, but lazy no. I work my a$$ off for what I have, situations arise and sometimes you need a helping hand. Because I didn't use the search function one time you find it necessary to label me. Well, ok then.

              Exactly!

              You only had 2 and a half hours to make money. Not going to happen if you have to come here and ask. The only thing you could do is post and hope someone gives you the money.

              Now you can search the forum to help you make some money to pay Ken back.

                I call bull****e on this theory. Sorry, I do. If I wanted someone to come and give me money I would have messaged them. Sorry, goes against my moral ethic. I did not expect this thread to get so many replies and I actually got some new writing orders while I was responding, so I was not sitting around twiddling my thumbs.

    Guys, seriously enough. I mean really, who cares other than Charlotte and I?

    I'm sure we've all been in situations where we needed help right away, whether it be financial or not.

    It really isn't a big deal.

    Now lets all relax and have a good weekend. Life is too short to argue about things that don't really matter much.

    Now grab a beer

      I have been in situations like that. I never asked for money on a forum but earned it myself.

      Actually, she made it public when she posted on this forum and we have every right to respond.

      She doesn't have enough time to argue. She should be in her car already.

        She didn't ask anyone for money, just ideas on how to make quick money.

        I took it upon myself to send her the 40 bucks, and she didn't know it was coming until my initial response when I told her it was already sent and done.

        The way I look at it - it's my money and I sure ain't gonna miss 40 lousy bucks.

          I said that is all she had time to do since she couldn't be bothered to search for information that she knew was already posted.

      Funny how you think I am arguing. I am responding to your posts that are directed to me.

      I have my opinion and shared it. You don't need to continue to respond if you want to stop the responses.

      Sorry, I don't argue or get angry at this stuff. I will, however, respond if I want too.

      Besides, sometimes we post for others to read as well. There was a reason Paul created that thread.

    But you ARE arguing, Thomas. And it's an argument that I'm afraid you are not winning. See, by the time you chimed in the money was sent, arrangements were made to pay back and she has already made the trip to pick up her husband. It's done, happened, finished.... see where I'm going?

    Seriously, relax. I don't know if I should offer you a beer or whack you over the head with it - LOL

          Sounds like you're losing your cool. That isn't good. I don't get scared at anonymous people on a forum threatening to hit me with beer bottles.

                      It was a nice gesture by Ken - and probably made him feel better about his own day. What's wrong with that?

                      My read on this is that plans had been made but fell through at the last minute and that's why there was a crisis.

                      You might be surprised how many people live close to the financial edge these days. The people aren't destitute - their bills are paid - they are working....but there's little left over and when things don't go as planned it can be a major problem (though a temporary one).

                      I've seen people come here with huge sob stories (not that long ago) - take orders, collect money and also have money donated, have people setting up sites and providing hosting and help....and the person never comes here again. This isn't that kind of thing at all.

                      Let it go, guys - it's done.

                Does it look like a threat when I placed "LOL" after it? Think about it.

                That's fine, Thomas. You definitely do not scare me either. I don't need to act tough on the Internet and list my credentials or reasons why you should be scared.
