Are there any quick ways to make money? I don’t believe in get rich quick scams, but I do think that you can make some money fast if you really need to.
I love to travel often. This begs the big question; how can someone that writes about personal finance spend so much money on vacations? To be honest my goal was to go away again without touching my savings. How did I do this? Below I have listed a few methods I used to earn an extra $1,000, so that you can see how I earn money quickly when I need to.
What are some quick ways to make money fast?
I’m not going to give any stock tips but my personal preference with investments these days is share’s that pay a decent divided. I found a share that pays monthly dividends which in the last couple of months has earned me roughly a couple of hundred dollars.
Total money: $200
Selling Stuff On Ebay.
I looked through old stuff around the house that I could potentially sell for some money. I was able to dig up a chair that I once picked up from a wrestling event with a picture of a wrestler. I put it on ebay to see if anyone would be interested and I found a girl from Germany that was willing to pay decent money for this chair. The chair is a bit of a collectors item but either way it served no purpose for me.

A quick way to earn some decent money is to buy tickets for popular events and then resale them online for a nice profit. Granted this method will fail if you try to do it for every single sporting event or concert. For certain events it works perfectly but the hard part is being one of the few people that is able to score tickets. You can sell the tickets through ticketsnow, ebay, or craigslist.
Total money: $800
This method will not earn you any serious money but any compensation for doing something that I love is great. When I started blogging I was well aware that I would not make a fortune nor would I be able to do it full time. I advise anyone that is going into blogging for the money to STOP right away. The effort that I put into this blog could be applied to a part time job where I would earn at least 10 X more money every month. I run this blog because I’m truly passionate about the subject and I love to learn from others. I figure if I can earn $50-100 a month I will at least cover the costs and maybe profit a coffee or two.
Total money: $900
Credit Card Cash Back.
I switched to a rebate rewards credit card about a year ago since I was making so many purchases on my credit card. I’m working on building my credit by having people in my family use my credit card for any large purchase. As a result of this I was able to build my credit and get some cash back at the end of the year.
Total money: $1,000
There you have it an extra $1,000 earned in a couple of months. By practising what I preach, read in the comments section of Studenomics, and read on other blogs I have been able to earn enough extra money to travel for the second time this winter. Those are few ways to make money quickly. What are you waiting for?
