Hello paintball nation!!!
Now I know you all are into the sport of paintball if you are in this forum. I mean what better sport is there!! I am making this thread to help out fellow ballers make a few extra dollars on the side if you need help to finance playing paintball or if you one of those kids that take mommy and daddy's money.
First off, let me talk about budget ballers and people who need some extra cash to play. I would like to start of by saying this is how I am. Paintball isn't a cheap sport and we all could use the extra cash. Don't stop balling because money is tight if it is your passion. We do have our priorities we need to consider, but what are some other things we can cut out ,besides paintball, that might save us some extra cash?
Now onto the people that take mommy and daddies money. Cootoes to you thats great you never have to worry about a money issue. What you don't realize is your really hurting yourself. You will never EVER learn how to manage your money properly when your finally grow up. If you think mommy and daddy are going to be around forever your wrong. And your probably thinking you will inherent that money. Well think again. If you can't manage your money now I can probably guarantee you will go bankrupt and I can say is I told you so. Your hurting yourself.
Here are a few things that a have come up with, being an entrepreneur, that give me that extra cash I need to be able to ball. Some of these you might think "well that's stupid" Then stop reading because this is for your own good. Please consider that this is a list for a ll ages. Let's get started.
As of 9-16-2012
1. Sell older paintball equipment.
When people sell there stuff it seems like they tend not to clean it half the time. When you want to sell things clean them up!! You will be more likely to sell it!!
2. Find a job
Obviously this should be #1 but I put it as 2 because jobs are hard to find and a lot of people have equipment laying around. A job will give you a steady income if you can keep it.
3 . MY ALL TIME FAVORITE. Go to a Costco or somewhere you can by candy bars or something in a bulk pack
. It's usually around $15 for $30 bars or less. Sell them for a $1 or $1.50 at school or at work in your office or to family members. Look at that profit you made with little work. Yea it's not much, but it adds up. FACT: no matter the economy chocolate and candy sales will always be on top. Why? Because it is a comfort food and people will always want it.
4. Play the stock market.
Some if you might think what the heck!! but if your smart enough to know what the stock make good investments, you can make a really pretty penny.
Follow @stockstobuy on twitter and they will give you a heads up on what ti buy. Some good sights are sharebuilder, Etrade, and scottrade.
Those are somrways I have for you right now. When more ideas come my way I will keep posting them. If you have other ways please comment and I will post them up with your user name for a source and because it's your idea, and please include a brief description. I want to help people play paintball and help the sport grow. So this thread is here for the people. Please share with everybody and get this lost known!!
Thank you very much for reading and commenting if you did.
