  1. Hi Lorillia,

    It really is a tough time for the U.S. and I can image what they went through with the shutdown and all. I have a feeling that it’s going to get a bit worse than it was before it gets all better.

    Also, great tips! There are tons of ways to get money in this day and age especially with the internet. I think we’re at a point where we just ran out of excuses not to be able to make money with all the opportunities going around.
