If you find your self broke just visit any friend or acquaintance. It could be in the office or at home. Ask him or her if you could help with any task. After helping a great deal politely ask for some money.September 6, 2016 at 11:39 pm in reply to: What would you do if you should find yourself broke? #92
I came across other suggestions.
1. If you are absolutely hard pressed you could sell some of your stuff. Especially if you have something like jewelery. Finding a buyer would be hard and you would hardly get the price you want. So before you think of doing this ask yourself if there is any other alternative.
2. If you are about to be evicted stay until you are evicted. Chances are that they would wait a couple of months. Take advantage of this to get yourself financially sound. Don’t dupe your property manager or landlord.
Whatever option you choose ask yourself if it is sustainable.September 6, 2016 at 11:39 pm in reply to: What would you do if you should find yourself broke? #91
If you know how to play a musical instrument like a guitar you could find a good location such as a subway station and play the guitar. You place a container in front of you while people put in money all day. Just imagine if 100 people put in $1 every day. That is $600 every week assuming you rest on Sundays.September 6, 2016 at 11:38 pm in reply to: What would you do if you should find yourself broke? #90
