If you’re a lost soul floundering in a bottomless sea of minimum wages and non-productive jobs, and in need of some cash to make some needy payments to stay afloat let me introduce you to a new, fun, and fast way to make money. Consider it a life preserver tossed to you in your time of need. If you want to tread water the rest of your life, that’s your business. It you want to move in another direction, that’s my business and the main reason I wrote this book. We’re talking pearls of wisdom, folks, so please pay attention. In 2012, the minimum wage is $8 bucks an hour. There is some exception, but most get eight. If you worked at a fast-food joint at that wage, eight hours a day or night, you would bring in a gross of $64 bucks for standing around a smelly grill and wearing a funny hat. But suppose you had a job on Monday that didn’t start until 3 p.m. or 4 p.m. where you were out on a football, baseball or soccer field or inside a gym for around three hours and made around $45 to $55 bucks, with payment before the game and home by six p.m. This is NOT fiction, this is REALITY. Amateur sports officiating is real money, real fast and depending on how many games you want to officiate each week, and the sport(s) you choose, pocketing up to $500 a week in your spare time is within reach. The best news is sports are a 12 month activity - day and night.
I found these money tree decades ago and officiated for years and now I’m telling you about it. Becoming an amateur sports official can virtually protect you from financial burdens, emergency cash needs, unemployment and the brutal shortcomings of suffering in a fast-food job with no future. I like to call it “patchwork economics.” It’s even a great way to supplement your income even if you do have a job. Most games are after 3 p.m. and you can surely fit a few games in each week to put money in your pocket. This is the ticket, people. Amateur Sports Officiating. It’s nothing but blue skies and green lights and
