5 ways to make big money in life: 2017

There are many ways to engage in safe behaviors that could still make you a good amount of money. Here is a look at five of them.

While it is always tempting to look for quick fixes in life, people have to realize that the worst way they can go about making big money is by taking huge and excessive risks.

For instance, so many people find themselves fascinated with the idea of gambling huge sums of money in order to become a millionaire. And while it is a great fantasy to think you can make enough by gambling to retire early and live a comfortable life, the reality is a little different. There are always stories of people who gambled, won big and lived a great life. But what you do not hear about is how those people are the tiny minority. Most people who gamble crazy amounts of money end up losing everything. It is why safe playing when you are gambling is so important.

And as indicated by Entrepreneur, there are many ways to engage in safe behaviors that could still make you a good amount of money. Here is a look at five of them. While these methods are not “get rich quick” schemes, they are very interesting ways for you to make some side money, which could eventually help you retire early or even quit your full time job.

  1. Real Estate

If you have some capital lying around, you may want to take a look at the real estate market in your area. As long as you are smart about where you invest, you can make a good amount of money from real estate. Not only would you have an asset that will always be worth something if you decided to sell, but you can also make money off rent when you buy commercial or residential properties.

  1. Writing

Writing a book is a great way to tell the world your story, but if you have something really compelling to say, you can make a good amount of money with this method. And the best part about writing a book is that you can take your time and write during moments when you are not working or engaged in other activities.

  1. Selling Products

While you are not going to make a full time income by selling products on sites such as Amazon and eBay, you can most definitely make some extra cash if you put in the hours. Whether these are items you own and do not want anymore, or you become an affiliate seller, you can make decent money if you know what you are doing.

  1. Selling Skills

Are you skilled at something in particular? Instead of limiting yourself to your full-time job, you may want to sell your skills in a part-time capacity. Thanks to online job sites, you can always find freelance gigs or odd jobs around your area where you can make extra money on the weekends or nights.

  1. Blogging or Starting a Website

If you have something interesting to say, but a book is not for you, starting a blog or website is a good way to get your opinion heard. Combine a blog or site with a good social media presence and you could easily get thousands of daily hits on your blog, which can make you some decent money through ad revenue.
