Ideas are dime a dozen.. put the right entrepreneur anywhere he will survive and make money .

a lot of these financial blogs, the sources of their income are their blogs and hence sometimes they appear more successful than they would be otherwise... real hustlers don't waste time in blogs.

Having said that ... internet however is a great place to earn money with little expense ... take this website for example ... if it was own and operated by only one person I think it would be a good income generator but initially the site was started from passion ... rest are by product ...

There are just too many ways ppl can make money .. one need to be very hard working and somewhat lucky and then be persistent and eventually sucess will come .

Life can however be made easier if u make some good decisions in life :
1 . Career choice
2. The life partner you choose .

The right combination of the above will allow u to try out many things in life and eventually find your Zen imo.

Even Warren buffet, who invested in penny stocks earned 99% of his wealth after 50th birthday. iDumb may correct me but I don't think you can get rich by investing. Inventing, is another thing.

Virtual Reality will be the next generation hotbed. (iDumb don't go there)

I think Mav wants financial independence not necessarily to be rich. There can only be handful of zuckerbergs among billions of ppl. But thereare Millions and millions of ppl who are doing well. He wants to be one of them. We all do or atleast most of us.

Who cares what you wrote? Read the title. This thread is about IDEAS. Not spunky posts by a frustrated, pragmatic, pseudo-entrepreneur failure.

j/k bro.

Thank you, that's sort of what is my point.

Funny how only from a post of mine, some of you are trying to assume my financial standing and not share meaningful ideas. I do well FYI, been employed in US for quite a while. I was only hoping for some ideas that you tried and made some extra buck on the side, not only for me but also for everyone to learn. For example, lets say many of us wanna invest a thousand or 5k, but want to learn a few safer examples to start with. Anyway, Peace.

I certainly do not assume anything about anyone. Ppl who got spare change are the ones looking for business ideas, not the day to day struggler.

I actually liked your thread... Here are some of my ideas and you will see why a good salesman/researcher is more important than anything. I give ideas that will need few dollars to potentially millions..

---------------
1. Buy things from Alibaba in bulk and sell in in ebay, craiglist individually. Now what you will sell you have to decide. There are ppl making 100s of thousands doing this. Do your research. If you can find a cool niche product you found a winner.

2. Nike and other emerging shoe companies release limited sneakers monthly almost. Buy them and resell them on ebay. This is very good for Teenagers. There is a big sneaker culture going on. You should also probably buys stocks of Nike, Under armour, foot locker (i bought all).

3. Buy tickets to high demand concert, sports events at book value the moment it comes out and resell it close to event date on craigslist/stubhub. Right ticket will get you ~3 to even 4x your book value.

4. Make Customized Jerseys of different nations/teams without actually copying the official logo to avoid legal problems.

5. There are standardized tests going on at every level... Specialized junior high to high school admission test, state wide test, you pick a subject there are standardized test for it. Master those materials to the point where you can score close to 100 and then offer a course to perspective test takers. This can be highly profitable if you got the "teaching " in you.

6. If you are interesting, open a blog, create traffic, monetize.

7. Open up a small shop and file other peoples taxes during the 2 months of tax season. Very little is needed.

8. Rent cars to uber drivers (mainly new immigrants who can't probably afford cars)

9. Buy broken down properties, fix it, and rent it out as long as calculations make sense ie good cap rate.

10. Create an app (LOL - what app i don't know - good luck).


You want more ideas?

Choose one, execute properly.

if any of you guys ever collected stamps and have a stamp book from long back. This could be gold. There are collectors willing to pay high dollars for interesting historial stamps (yes bangladeshi stamps has value even if they they are marked in an envelop). My brother used to collect stamps when he was a young and that was some 25 to 30 years ago and he had some really cool, rare and unused stamps. He had close to thousand.. But someone stole his stamp book.

If any of you collected it... look into it

Why would you get infraction silly? Actually there is a great demand for photoshoots for Elle, Marie Claire and Cosmo. Never feel afraid for original ideas.
