Create For Cash is pretty straightforward. Anything you create and make money from. That could be a business, a product, a service, a piece of art, or an old tennis shoe. As long as it makes money. Don’t get me wrong, poetry and sandcastles are great, but if I can’t figure out how to make money from them I won’t put them on this site. In other words, it’s about being your own boss and creating your own job. Oh yeah, and making money.
Why should I listen to you?
Okay, here is my shameless, third person bio:
Julie Austin is an award-winning author, inventor, and multiple business owner. Her patented product, swiggies, wrist water bottles, have been a NASDAQ product of the year semi finalist and are currently sold in 24 countries. She’s appeared on ABC, CBS, NBC, and FOX News, along with dozens of TV shows, magazines and radio shows around the world. She’s a “go-to” media expert in the fields of innovation & creativity, and is featured in the books “Patently Female” and “Girls Think of Everything”.
I’ve also spent a good part of my life in the entertainment industry as an actor, writer, development exec, distributor, producer, publicist, and casting assistant. Some people think the entertainment industry is pretty cool. Some people actually make money from it too.
Why should I create my own job?
If you create your own job you get to set your own hours, your own salary, and you get to do exactly what you want to do with your life. I believe everyone should wake up feeling psyched about what they do for a living. If you dread going to work, then you’re doing the wrong thing. I’m not going to say something corny like “Follow your passion”, but… okay, I guess I will. I would add “Follow your passion…and get PAID for it”.
I thought making money was evil.
Where in the world did you get that idea? Making money is awesome. Making money from something you created yourself is even more awesome. I want everyone to be rich… and happy. I hope I can help you with both.
