The business of making money can be a tricky and manipulative one at best. Money is the world’s curse. You love it and you hate it. It enables you, but it also holds you back. Everything in life can be relayed back to money as the motive and the long term goal. People try and be careful to not make it their goal, but it always comes knocking saying “You need more of me.”
With this being said, maybe all of the hub around money is a facade, and maybe it’s not. The grand scheme of it all is that for the time being you need money…and you probably need more of it than you currently have. The ways of money making and investments are obviously secrets held by the one percent. You know, that one percent of the population that holds more money than the rest of the world’s population combined. Right. Them.
While their ways of money making are somewhat shrouded in a cloud of illegal activity, fraud, and embezzlement, there are some ways you can make money that are completely legal and will bring you a decent return. Here are some such ways.
Get Your Hands on Silver and Gold
Some people don’t think that hoarding or investing in silver or gold provides much of a return. They are wrong. Of course like any aspect of business, you have to be careful. There are many outlets out there that will seek to scam you. You always have to be sure that what you’re investing in is the real deal, and you also have to read up and learn how to collect and trade. If you do it right, silver and gold are the commodities you always want to have in your back pocket.
Become a Lender
You don’t have to be made of money to be able to become a lender. There is a place called The Lending Club that allows you and other ordinary people like you to make a return on your investment by lending chunks of change to one another. The minimum lending bid is only $25, so it’s low risk and is a good place to start learning the tricks of the trade.
Once you try your wings in this simple outlet, you can move on to bigger aspirations. Who knows, maybe one day you’ll even become an investor.
Invest in Yourself
It sound crazy, but it’s actually a very valid suggestion. You are your best investment. When you put money into yourself in the ways of learning a trade, you automatically make a return on that investment. Self growth is worth more than all the money in the world. People were created to live out their lives according to their passions and giftings. Since when does money have to do anything to do with that?
