Factoring works well for retailers and other businesses that have big receivables. Mitchell explains that factoring is a legitimate source of funds in hard times. He says, “It’s a huge business and , at a when people can’t get other types of lending, factors are skilled experts at lending against accounts receivables.” Average Yearly Salary – $79,846

Health-Care Technician. You may that nurses are in demand , but what about the folks they work with? “There’s never enough of them, like radiology technicians, lab assistants, and home health aides.
