    I have started my own local SEO business from reading countless posts here and want to thank you all for your time and knowledge!
    (Needed extra cash for my wedding that I'm funding 100%)

    I currently have 8 months left and looking for other ideas to generate some cash flow.

    Any ideas on what I can do given the time frame?

    I'm looking for new clients constantly but would like to find another avenue that requires some hard work in the beginning but then becomes automated.

    Appreciate any help or advice.

    Just my opinion, but you shouldn't get married until you have a steady income. Money is the number 1 thing that couples fight about. If you can't afford the wedding, maybe you should postpone it until you have somewhat of a savings and a steady flow of income. Otherwise the two of you are going to fight constantly and that is too stressful on a marriage.

    Fixed that for you!

    But I agree, don't buy something you can't afford.

    Ok maybe I wasn't clear enough. I do have a full time position with a steady income and full benefits. I do local SEO on the side. I would like to do more so that I can pay for the wedding ahead of time and stock away for a house. I'm currently bringing in 60K for 2012 after taxes with current yearly expenses being 25K. Yes that leaves me with quite a bit left over, but having to fund a 20K wedding, 10K honeymoon and 20% down on a 350-500K house by Sept...I need something more to work on. Yes the house down payment can wait a bit, but I'd like to have something in the works.

    I am quite STABLE lol Just want to be ahead of schedule.

    That is good news. The first year of marriage is hard and you don't need the added stress of money matters. The only thing I can think of to make you money starting now is to buy at yard sales and sell on ebay or craigslist. I did that with ebay when I was going through divorce and it was a great extra income. Anything else is going to take time.

    That has come across my mind from time to time, I may have to revisit that. Thank you for your advice!

    I had so much fun with it. One time I bought an engraving machine for $20 and sold it on ebay for $500. Another time I bought a vase for $10 and sold it for 4k. That was my biggest find. I remember the Dell leather laptop cases that were $1 each (brand new) that went for $70 each on ebay. A woman bought one for each of her children. The designer clothes for fifty cents each always sold for over twenty dollars. That added up fast when a big bag of clothes were bought. People in rural areas always bought those. Years ago people who did yard sales/ebay had to guess the worth of some things because we couldn't do a google search on a phone. You have an advantage now because you can look up the worth of an item from anywhere. I always think back fondly to the yard sales/ebay period because it got me through a lot of hard times.

    What a novel thought! Is it fun? I once thought about getting a job but I wasn't sure about the process.

    Start by first building a SEO website and try building backlinks on it and rise in SERPs, then in this way, you will know your real SEO skills, and the level where you are at.

    Maybe you should. See how much time you waste for sex, and then see how much money could you make during that time - you might get surprised.
