Cash is the oxygen that lets your business breathe. And just like oxygen, when there is none available it's all you can think about because you need it to survive.

Sometimes your business just needs a fast infusion of cash, and today I'll show you 3 ways to get cash quick. Best of all, they are legal, moral, and ethical!


Tip Of the Week

I have a new friend, and I love him. His name is Edgar. Let me explain.

Most of our social media updates go to waste. They’re only seen by a fraction of our total audience, falling victim to things like time of day, mysterious algorithms and other factors that are beyond our control.

Fewer and fewer people see our social media updates. To keep up, we’re forced to publish more frequently, just to stay engaged with our audiences. This can make social media marketing a real burden, one that grows heavier each day… and one that offers diminishing returns.

Edgar to the rescue! No longer do you publish your updates just once and then watch them sink beneath the waves of obscurity, missed by most and forgotten by all (even you) within hours of publication.

Edgar catalogs your social updates into a library that grows over time. You curate the library, and Edgar republishes those updates on a schedule you set. He publishes only what you want, and only when you want it done.

What happens once Edgar publishes all of the updates in a category (like “My Blog Posts,” for instance)? He just pulls more updates from your library.

You can handcraft each update and even write several fresh updates that point to the same resource, blog post or podcast episode.

Your social media posts don’t go to waste. Your “old” posts can become new again. And you have time to catch up on the latest episodes of The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones.

Spiritual Foundations

The Bible says that where sin abounds, grace abounds much more. (Romans [5:20])

But grace is about more than the forgiveness of sins. Check this out:

“And the Child grew and became strong in spirit, filled with wisdom; and the grace of God was upon Him.” Luke [2:40]

Jesus did not sin. (2 Corinthians [5:21]) So why and how was God’s grace was upon Jesus? There must be some way a human can abound in God’s grace even when he has not sinned.

The word “grace” is first mentioned in the Bible in Genesis 6:8, which says that “Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord”. Noah’s name means “rest”. So the verse is literally saying that rest found grace.

Grace was upon Jesus because He lived a life of rest, and trust in His Father. He said, “The Son can do nothing of Himself. He can do only what He sees His Father doing.” (John [5:19])

Grace comes upon us when we rest and trust God.

But what if nothing happens?

Honestly, if after you have given the matter to Jesus and nothing happens, what can you do? If Jesus Himself can’t do anything about it, do you think you can? But here's the truth: once the problem is handed over to Jesus, He can and will do a perfect work of taking care of it for you!

So live a life of rest. Have this attitude and tell the Lord, “I just rest in You Lord and I trust You.”
