People often miss opportunities because they are unable to raise the necessary cash. This could be one of the most frustrating things for many businesspeople. Fortunately, there are more than a dozen ways to raise enough cash and they are all legal. The money may not be our own, but at least we should be able to use the opportunity and gain profit. Unfortunately, the easiest way is often not the cheapest. Almost everyone can obtain money through credit cards and we could always obtain money with these cards. The Cash Advance option is the easiest way to raise cash and we could obtain it immediately from the nearest ATM. With American Express card it is possible to write ourselves a $2,000 check with no argument. With five cards, we will be able to raise $10,000 very easily. However, cash advance can be very expensive. We would need to pay significant amount of fees and charges, as well as huge interest rate.
Cash advance is an automatic loan to us and without questions asked. Relatives and friends are another source of money. We could have people who are close to us and always encourage us to take opportunities when needed. As an example, if 50 of our relatives and friends support our worthy cause and contribute $200 each, we will be able to rise $10K to launch a new venture. In many cases, we don’t have to pay for interest and they could be willing to take the money without interest. Another “no questions asked” source of instant case is taking loans against life insurance. The interest rate should be significantly lower than other types of loan. As long as we repay it regular, we shouldn’t be worried. If we bought the house we live in, we could also borrow against the equity we have built up. Generally speaking, if we buy a home for about $100,000 and we make regular payments for 10 years, the value of our home could have reached nearly $200,000.
Our garages, basements and attics could also be the source of possible instant cash. We should go through everything that we have stored. In fact, we could find collectibles, priceless antiques and valuable heirlooms. Many of these rare things could be items that people are looking for. If we sell them to the right person, it is possible for us to gain a lot of money. Regardless of the option we choose to raise money, we shouldn’t forget to repay our relatives, friends and neighbours. We should have proper records and we should make goals on when we should repay them. Also, if we want to start a business, we should make sure that we have proper business plan. If our plan is excellent, we don’t have to be afraid to show it to the bank and people. In fact, banks and investors are always on the lookout for new opportunities to invest in.
