Living with the Rich
One of the easiest ways to meet a rich man is to live where rich men live. You’re probably thinking you can’t afford to do that. But what if you could live in a high rent district for free. Would you need any more incentive to pack your bags?
House sitting for people who live in expensive homes in exclusive neighborhoods is the perfect way to meet a rich man. If you’re house sitting in a wealthy area, your new home is ripe with possibilities.
Get to know the neighbors and the neighborhood
Once you move into your temporary home, you will be free to roam the neighborhood and get to know the neighbors. Say hello as you pass on the street. Smile and greet your new neighbors on the elevators of the high rise. Be friendly as you walk the beach in front of the ocean view bungalow you’re house sitting, and make as many new friends as you can, both young and old. You never know when one of your new neighbors will want to introduce you to the lonely rich bachelor next door.
Stop for coffee at the neighborhood coffee shop along with any other places that rich men might frequent before work, during lunch and after work. If you don’t know how to strike up a conversation, just introduce yourself and let them know you do house sitting.
If they are interested in you, they’ll continue the conversation. If they’re not, they still might hire you to house sit, then you’ll have another opportunity to meet someone wealthy. It’s as simple as that.
(For your own safety, never give out your home address.)
HOW TO FIND A HOUSE SITTING JOB
There are several ways to find a house sitting job. Agencies that provide house sitting services can be found on the internet and in the phone books of major metropolitan cities. Agencies and homeowners love to sign single women over couples or single men, because women are usually quieter and leave the house cleaner than the average male. Get a reputation for providing good service, and you can have your pick of homes.
Of course no one will let you stay in their house if you don’t have a clean police record and perfect letters of recommendation. Recommendations are easy to obtain though, just ask your relatives, friends or boss. If this is your first time finding a house sitting job, your references can be character references. People just want to know if you are honest, responsible and reliable.
Another way to land a house sitting job is to advertise. Create a business card that announces your services from pet and plant care to simple house care. State that you have references.
Hand out your cards to everyone you know. Networking is the best way to get a house sitting job. You can also leave your cards on the mail boxes of homes in wealthy areas, or better yet, ring their doorbell and introduce yourself.
People who leave the care of their homes to strangers want to know that their homes are safe. If they can talk to someone who knows you and is willing to verify that you are trustworthy, that is likely to land you a job. Having your references with you when you meet homeowners is a plus.
One of the best ways to meet rich men is to live where they live and play where they play and if you can’t afford to do that, then house sitting in their neighborhoods is the second best.
