These get rich quick strategies will have you sipping drinks on a secluded beach in no time flat.
Get Rich Quickly By Investing in Penny Stocks
If you want to get rich quick, you need to ditch those scratch off lottery tickets you’ve been dirtying your pennies with and upgrade to penny stocks. I’ve written about investing in penny stocks before, but why not give them a second look? Why bother investing in stock market stalwarts like Procter & Gamble or IBM when you can buy so many more shares of a penny stock for so much less?
After all, what better way is there to invest in the stock market than by taking a couple hundred dollars and buying tens of thousands of shares of some company that specializes in some unknown product that’ll revolutionize how we live our lives? Just imagine your giddiness at becoming rich after those 200,000 shares of XYZ stock you bought at $.001 a pop skyrocket overnight to suddenly become worth $10 per share.
Make Money Online and Get Rich in no Time
How would you like to sit around in your pajamas and snack your way to success? It’s all within your reach if you just start an online business or blog from your home. Leave all the hard work, analysis, collaboration and creative effort of your day job behind and start your own business from home.
I have written about blogging before and even shared some of my favorite blogging tips. What I never shared in those blogging tips posts was that making money online is the true way to get rich quick. There are numerous ways to make money online from setting up an online store to blogging and they all allow you to be able to work from home to boot. I don’t have experience with running an online store, but if it’s as easy as blogging then I am bound to try it.
With blogging, all you need to do is set up a website, decide on a website host, write up a few posts and then watch the advertising offers roll in like the evening tide. If you want to get rich even quicker, then run multiple websites and you’ll be certain to be sleeping in a bed of cold hard Benjamins quicker than you can bat an eye. In all seriousness, starting a blog has changed my life. If you’d like to start a website, you can do so for as low as $2.95 per month when you sign up through my Bluehost link.
Sue Someone Because You Spilled Your Coffee
Who hasn’t had a terrible experience at their local fast food joint? Was that burger you had today for lunch burned or did they put too much mustard on it? Worse yet, did they serve it to you hot? If so, then suing is a justifiable way to make some money and get rich quick. Better yet, you could also use your Discover it card and earn rewards points at the same time!
We all remember Stella Liebeck who sued her local McDonald’s because the coffee they served her was hot, so hot that it gave her third degree burns when she spilled said coffee in her lap. Granted the $2.86 million dollar that was awarded to Ms. Liebeck was lowered by a judge to a measly $640,000 that is still a nice little chunk of change. Just imagine if you have a number of experiences like this you can get rich off of your misfortunes.
If you run out of fast food joints to sue, you can always look for a neighborhood with poorly-maintained sidewalks, find a crack, break your ankle and sue your way to a cushy life. Now this might not be the most enjoyable way to become rich quickly, but I’m going to be a pragmatist here and say that if it works then why not give it a try and make some fast money.
Flip Real Estate to Make Fast Money
With interest rates as low as they are, it seems almost a given that property flipping would be a great way to get rich quick! All you have to do is buy a few houses, with no money down of course, and turn around and sell them at a hearty 30-40% profit in no time at all. Just make sure that you use your credit card for any remodeling costs so you can score points to help you take that sweet trip you’ve been wanting to take.
You might have heard the talking heads on TV and other so called “experts” say that this was what helped bring the real estate market down a few years ago and eventually led to the overall collapse of the economy. Well, that is merely speculation by jealous people who know they can’t make money fast like you can. Once you get that taste of making money off of property flipping on your lips you can take that initial return from your first purchase and pump it into new purchases and thus build up your property flipping empire.
I’ve laid out a few ways you can make money fast, but wait – there’s more! If you act now, you can purchase my new e-book, a virtual encyclopedia full of foolproof get rich quick strategies at a discounted rate of $44.95.
Editor’s note: Happy April Fools Day everyone! I’m a practical joker; just ask anyone in my family. Please take my post with the humorous, tongue in cheek nature it was meant to convey. The pursuit to become rich is not one that is quick or one that is even attainable, though building wealth is possible for many.
