I have until August to make $5000
It needs to be made legally and I don't have a car
I live in New Hampshire and I'm in college
Is investing in stocks or whatever worth it? If not, what are my options?
I'm in your boat, I need to make 10k for some medical procedures by summer.
There are really high returns in puts/calls (options), but unless you're a quick learner and really motivated, good luck.
1) Invest what you have right now in some quality kneepads.
2) Suck 5000 dicks for $1 per dick. The dick market is very strong right now, so I don't think you'll have much trouble finding clients.
3) Collect $5000.
Simple stuff there OP. Good luck.
Cruise ship. Bad pay and hard work, but you'll be able to save $8,000-12,000 in six months depending on position, and you won't need a car. Americans and Europeans never stay because of the pay, but the companies don't want to have only Filipinos and Jamaicans attending guests, so they're always on the lookout for Americans. Disney Cruise Line, Carnival Cruise, Royal Carribbean.
If you could invest in stocks to make 5k, you wouldn't need 5k. Get a minimum wage job on campus. Try the dining hall. At $7.25/hr, assuming you work from Feb-July you could make close to 5k working full time. Elect no tax witholdings - you won't pay much anyway and you can come very well within your goal.
What sucks is that you have to go to college and work full time, but hey, you asked.
Thankfully you started this thread. When I woke up this morning I was gonna ask almost the same question. The only difference my question was, "how do you make $100,000 USD by August, stocks or something?"
Recycle computers and electronics. People pay you to pick them up. Disassemble them and sell on ebay or local scrap yard. It can be done while watching tv. Make a Craigslist ad.
Appliances too. Microwave magnetrons sell for 20 to 60 bucks on ebay.
become a medical donor
get a job at mcdonalds and save
go door to door and spray paint numbers on people's steps for money?
Shovel snow door to door, rake leaves, weed people's yards.
Sell sperm if you have a college education
Here's what I do for easy cash on the side.
1. Find someone (family/friend/roommate/etc) that has a sam's club or costco membership.
2. Buy a case of water (40 bottles for ~$3 in my area), A bundle of white T-shirts, and a Black marker/sharpie
3. Write "water $1" on T-shirts
4. Keep that case of water in the trunk of your car or keep some in your backpack
I make between $15-20 a day between classes.
I made $3000 grand from Beginning of May until August last year, working maybe 10-15 hours a week with a commission sales job.
If you work 35+ hours on commission sales from now until August you will easily make over 5 grand.
Become a prostitute.
$5000 in 8 months is 625 a month.
Charging $50 for services, you would only need to suck a dick 13 times every month till august.
Another suggestion is to get a proper job.
