You have 48 hours to raise $2,000. How will you do it?
There are stories all over the web about products and services that take off. Others have a garage sale and turn a good profit. How will you make $2000 in 48 hours (lottery is not an option)
I'd go to my local Credit Union. They make small loans with minimal interest re-payments. Alternatively, I'd use my credit card, and then immediately take out a second credit card with a 0% balance transfer deal with a view to clearing the debt ASAP. If I wanted to actually make the cash rather than borrow it, then 48 hours would be very short notice. I guess I'd have to sell, or pawn something, though I'm not sure I have any possessions with that kind of value!
Sell my surplus "stuff." Most of us accumulate so much stuff that we don't really need, without even realizing it. In my own case, I've lived in the same place for 31 years, and if I really knew how much money I had tied up in stuff I don't need and rarely use, I'd probably have a stroke.
Assuming I cannot take it from our savings, I would simply ask my four close-friends (by phone or in person) for an investment of $500 each and guarantee I would pay them back within one or two months. Within this month, I would complete an additional 5 or 6 psychological evaluations to re-pay them or budget it out of our regular incoming to complete the task in 2 months.
Get a loan on my car I guess if I couldn't use money I had in savings. 48 hours doesn't seem long enough to get a garage or yard sale going. I don't have $2000 worth of stuff for a yard sale anyway.
If I could make 2000 in 48hours I wouldnt be on here trying to make money.
I'd sell a custom wall mural to a business in need at a good price...one of the services I have at my disposal to offer. Just find someone who can provide that price of an item or service, sell it for them, and take your cut. Get ready to visit and call business after business until you find a lead, then close that deal!
Sounds like you have a good attitude towards being able to sell your products and don't get discouraged. Good for you!
I guess 16 years of sales and promotions may have helped develop some thick skin. Gotta go with what you know!
Come up with a "how to earn $2,000 in 48 hours" scam and sell it to people to make the $2,000
If you need the money urgently, try looking at payday loans but the only snag is, their interest rates are very high. And you have to pay it as soon as you get paid so that you won't get trapped in a debt that you might not be able to get out of. This payday loan is only good for short term loans. Some lenders can let you roll it over the next month so you only pay the interest for the first month but be very careful because the interest is very high.
I am still reading the article "How to make $2000 in 24 hours" as I think I will need to understand the trick in first 24 hours but I am sure I will do it rather surpass the target.
Fun question, I was actually in this situation, I had been accepted into a nursing program and the director called me 3 days before summer classes were starting to tell me that I had to enroll to complete some prereqs that she had forgotten to tell me about or I wouldn't be able to start that fall. My husband and I put price tags on everything in the house and posted yard sale signs. The living room furniture was the first to go and my house was bare when it was all said and done, but it was worth it. Yard sale for sure.
I had to come up with $5,000 in just a few hours when my daughter's college financial aid verification hit a snag, through no fault of her own. The school was going to dis-enroll her due to this, and she was basically left homeless in a city 1200 miles from home as they wouldn't even allow her in her dorm until her bill was at least 70% paid.
I utilized the bank of Mommy and Daddy for a portion of it. I keep an emergency fund, but this emergency exceeded it. The issue was eventually fixed and we were able to repay my parents within a few weeks.
