I, like so many others have recently found myself laid off and scared to death as no new job offers were forth coming. Does the panicked voice inside almost want to scream "I need to get money today!" or "I need money now!" I know there have been a lot of us here lately. Let's face it, unemployment helps, but it does not cover everything unless your house is paid off.

What I really want to share with you is how to make some cash today, right now without borrowing it from a cash advance service or mooching off family members. Seriously, there is a lot of money to be made with this method, and it only requires one thing from you. Your willingness to believe that it will work if you do it, no you don't need to sign up for anything or buy anything either.

I must admit that I have always wanted to be a writer, and I'm usually fairly good at the skill. I like to grocery shop, strange I know, and have a penchant for finding a deal. I decided to take those skills and do a little experiment. I placed some offers on Craigslist, made the hourly wage low enough to entice a few contacts, and low and behold I got instant replies from people looking for more information. I could not believe my eyes when I got no less than six offers in an hour from people looking for a good coupon shopper to do their grocery shopping for them, run errands for their elderly parents and as many who needed articles written for their blogs or websites.

To my utter amazement, I found that any skill is marketable online for free with online classifieds, and that working from home was not the distant dream that it once was. I was so stunned by my luck that first day, that I raised my prices a bit, and replaced the ad figuring that my luck had been a fluke. You know what, it wasn't, I got just as many replies the next day, and the day after.

The truth is that you can turn your skills into cold, hard cash. In fact, you can get money today if you want to. The only thing stopping you from doing so is your own fear. I need to ask you this because I have had to ask myself this question. What are you afraid of? Are you more afraid of success or failure? You can get money today if you really want to
