As you surf along the information superhighway, you will inevitably come across folks pedalling gold and silver with newsy looking articles mentioning the names of so and so who incredibly foresaw the 2000 dotcom crash, the real estate crash of 2008, etc, etc, and thinks now is the time to buy...

These can be fairly persuasive and likely generate significant income -- which can be available to you, as you work from home.

Starting today, record a set of wildly optimistic and wildly pessimistic predictions on as frequent a basis as you can tolerate, but at least monthly. Be careful to allow for date and topic substitutions such that you can create additional content with minimal editing, through currently available tools can help you smooth out the edges on such content. I'd advise keeping proper attire for every age so past recordings that need minor adjustments can be modified with ease.

In ten years or so, you would have created a tremendous library of valuable predictions that came true (just check some of your HB pearls) -- which you can now market to gold and silver sellers, who I can safely predict will still be in business looking for credible predictors.

       This idea, shirley, is simply a version of an existing well-known scam?   

       It's the one where you email 5000 people predicting that X will happen, and another 5000 people predicting that X won't happen. If X happens, you split the first 5000 names into 2 groups of 2500, and email them opposite predictions about Y. Etc etc, until you have a dozen or so people who have been sent 10 consecutive correct predictions. You then ask them for money in exchange for your next prediction.
