48. Renting Out Your Garage or Driveway – If you have extra space in your driveway (or side yard), you could rent that space out as well to people looking to store property, like boats or RVs. In many areas, there are HOAs that prevent people from parking this type of equipment, and you could help solve that problem for them while earning a little extra cash.
When building campaigns, it’s also vital to use language that’s shareable and creative. Sales psychology is your friend.

The more successful a service business is, the more time you’re likely to have to invest in the business, since you are essentially trading your time for money. For example, if you have a photography business, every new client will cost money, require more time and add complexity to the business. Selling items online, in contrast, is easier to scale as a business, since the difference between selling ten and 12 items isn’t all that much. Easiest of all is a business that sells a digital product. The added cost and complexity that comes with every added customer of a piece of software is very small, since there is nothing to package or ship. For this reason, a company like Facebook, Dropbox and, indeed, Vinewave is hyper-scalable.
I love wine bars! There is even a successful wine bar in the small village on Cape Cod where my summer house is. How did it become successful?

They also offer live music on most nights. Beware that many customers expect truly exceptional wines at a wine bar.

If you’re not self-employed and work for a company, find out if they have a retirement plan. If you’re lucky, employers will sometimes match contributions you make into a retirement fund.

Until it reaches that size a company might contract for an HR person one or two days a week through a human resources service.
