The Quick Fix
Let's say that you are in dire need of some quick cash. You need some money and you need it yesterday. You could sell something in order to raise the cash. You could get a part-time job. You could rent your extra bedroom. You could do a lot of things.
According to this website, you could even start your very own house cleaning service.
"You can easily make $20 an hour cleaning houses if you can manage the business end right. The key is finding clients and doing a great job in a short amount of time. If you’re in a financial crunch, there’s money to be had if you’re willing to put in the work. You just have to go out and grab it!"
Yes, we're lined up right next to plasma donation and holding a garage sale. And yes, you're the pawn in their game.
These new house cleaning "companies" know that you can be had if they just charge you a little less than everybody else. They know that the money can be quick. They know that the money can be tax free. And they know that they can quit anytime they wish.
Because you're not really their customer. You're just a quick fix.
The question is simple. Do you want to be a customer, or do you want to be a quick fix?
