The requirements for this one are time and energy, plus a little bit of courage. Here's the basic premise:
Here in America, we live in a consumer society. Consumer societies tend to have two characteristics:
- We tend to be wasteful. We often buy stuff we don't need. That's because we often buy things based on our emotion, rather than our intellect.
- We also tend to be either lazy or busy. This means that after we've bought stuff we don't really need, we tend to be too lazy or too busy to dispose of them in the right way. The right way to dispose our excess stuff would, of course, be to sell or recycle it. But most of us don't do either thing.
For proof, look in our landfills. Our landfills are overflowing with useful stuff that people bought on impulse. For even more proof, look inside the average American's garage. The average garage is literally overflowing with stuff that the owners have even forgotten they have.
And know what? Our landfills and our garages are two of our biggest eyesores! Everyone is complaining about them. But hardly anyone is doing anything about them.
And this is where you come in. You can use this quick insight into consumerism by making tons of money for yourself without hardly spending any money out of your own pocket. Here's the strategy:
Put together a service that helps people get rid of all the stuff they've piled up! Tune in tomorrow for great tips and tricks on how to get started doing just that.
