Money & Finance Today


Have you ever wondered how some people manage to go from rags to riches? I mean, you don’t see them starting their own business. In fact, most of them just started out as simple salarymen. So it makes you wonder, how come? How did these people amass the fortune they have now? You’re certainly not thinking they’re running a drug cartel now, are you? Well, that may be a possibility. But of course, money doesn’t always have to come illegally. There are many (legal) ways you can earn your keep – and I’m not just talking about working a day job.


Reality-check, a day job is not going to get you anywhere (read more). I’ve been part of the labor force long enough to know that. That 9 to 5 thing adults have always programmed us to do helps nothing but the economy – which is good for the country and all but not necessarily best for you as a person. Sure, it’s enough to get by. You can pay rent, utility bills, buy yourself a few restaurant meals but that’s about it. If you want to become something greater, a day job is just not going to cut it. You need a second source of income. And this new source is what will fuel your dreams.


Now, how do you find another way to earn?


I know you’re already busy. Working an 8-hour shift is no joke – not to mention, overtime. You are already so preoccupied with work and chores so where in the world will you get the time to earn a little extra? A part-time job definitely doesn’t sound like a great idea.


For one, some people dive into the world of e-commerce. They make use of the internet – which is probably the greatest invention of all time – to sell goods online. They come up with all sorts of products from edibles to wearables to downloadables. In short, a lot of products that end with “les.” Thanks to various social media platforms, this e-commerce thing has become a blast. It’s cost-effective and profit-generating. You can post on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and many other websites for zero dollars and earn a great deal of profit in return.


It’s real simple too, by the way.



Whether you create your own products or do retail, all you have to do is snap a picture of what you’re selling and post in online. The toughest part is probably marketing it but online marketing is still way more doable than offline methods – especially when you’re just a small business. “Snap, post, share” that’s all you really have to do. Question is, will you get rich by doing is?


If you’re lucky, YES. If not, then at least you’ll earn considerably – enough to fund your extra “needs.”


If that’s not enough for you, however, and you really dream of going BIG someday, then we have one other suggestion: Trading.


We have many trading platforms nowadays – some even create their own website. And maybe, you’ve heard about it already. But I bet you’ve never tried it before because of the following reasons:


1. It’s too risky.


2. You don’t have that kind of money to spare.


3. You don’t know the first thing about it.


If number one is your problem, then you should really break off your shell. Everything in life comes with risk. It just so happens that this risk can make you rich. You know what they say: Great risks, greater rewards.


If it’s number two, then don’t worry. Trading doesn’t always have to involve a lot of money. Whatever you have in excess is enough to start. Some trading platforms even let you start with as low as $100! Check out more brilliant ways to grow your 100 bucks here: https://www.investopedia.com/university/how-start-trading/


Lastly, if you’re worried about number three, then it’s high time we tell you something: You don’t have to trade yourself.


You can become a financial investor!


Many trading programs (or bots, as some would term them) are available online. These software trade in your stead; you just have to fund them. They trade according to what trends they find in various online databanks – which really good bots have access to, by the way. They consolidate all their findings and decide based on probability. If you really think about it, these bots have a better shot at trading than you do.


It’s a great way to earn passively, I tell you!
