Different Ways to Make Money

. Monday, December 8

Meet Desire Henriksen of Phoenix, Arizona. Not wanting to fall so behind in her house payments that she become yet another statistic of the times, she got creative.  She told CNN that she sold her hair.

You can too at HairTrader.com and Hairwork.com. Longer, untreated hair bring the most money, anywhere from $300 to $900.

If you don't have the hair, how about becoming a professional lab rat? Try Just Another Lab Rat for tips and tricks. Paul Clough made $28,000 this year doing 7 clinical studies. The tough part? Reactions to the trial medications.

If that doesn't float your boat either, you can sell the jewelry you have hanging around. Throw a Gold Exchange party and see what that old junk is worth. An old shoebox filled with costume jewelry just might get you $350.

These ideas are all fine and dandy, but once something is sold, it's gone. But, I just might check out that lab rat thing myself. I'm sure there are more viable, legal alternatives than what CNN suggests, isn't there?

I have considered becoming a gigolo on the side. However, since I try to be in bed asleep shortly after 9:00, it hasn't worked out well so far.

Plus my wife has been somewhat disagreeable about my choice of part-time work.

Oh well, I'll continue to be a blogger, I suppose.

LOL Making much money that way, Paul?

Naaah, not much money, but the benefits are great!

At this point, I wouldn't give up blogging for anything. (I'll keep my fingers crossed that my computer doesn't die on me.) I enjoy it and love to write, and that means more to me than money ever would! The best thing - meeting people, getting to know them.

Yep, it's worth far more than money.

Theresa DO NOT become a lab rat. We had a major incident in the UK a couple of years back that resulted in fatalities and serious disability.

On a lighter note can I suggest you and the horse come over to Coventry in the UK ......I will let you work out the rest as you are an intelligent lady. With the current exchange rate I am sure you would make a fortune.

Hi Mike! It's always good to see you!

It's the implied risk of clinical trials that have always kept me cautious. But, I'm thinking about it now, just because of the times.

Me and Odin come to Coventry? Aw, don't count on my brain cells working all the time, and you'll have to go ahead and explain. Keep in mind that I'm not all that concerned with making a fortune, just keeping my animals fed and the roof over my head. LOL

Theresa Coventry is famous for a certain lady and her horse! She was a Lady with a capital L.

Theresa Komor said...

Would you, by chance, talking about Lady Godiva? Um, that shoe don't quite fit in my case! So much for becoming wealthy. Poo.

She sold her hair? As a balding fellow, I'm more than a bit jealous.

I could tell the economy was bad the other day when we were told about our Christmas bonuses -- we'll each get a ski mask, a revolver and a map highlighting the best escape routes from liquor stores around Little Rock.

Hey, I wouldn't turn down a revolver as a gift right now!
