Mark’s Answer

There are very few things in life that come fast and easy, especially money. I mean, if it was easy then everyone would do it. Though I think it's great to have that drive to achieve something.

There are a lot of people online right now promoting various schemes to get rich quick, you see them all over Instagram and TikTok telling you what kind of side hussle you can do to earn money quickly and many have millions of followers. It's an entire industry. I would be careful of anyone who tells you ways to get money quick and easy.

An entrepreneurial spirit is really admirable but most very successful people will be able to tell you about their long journey to get there and often many failures that have had along the way. Career wise, one of the best things you can do to increase the chances of having a higher paying career is to get a college degree.

In the US National Center for Education Statistics publishes reports on how levels of education effect income, In 2020, the median earnings of those with different levels of completed education were:

Less than high school - $29,800
High school graduate - $36,600
Some college, no degree - $39,900
Associate’s degree - $44,100
Bachelor’s degree - $59,600
Master’s degree or higher - $69,700

As people said above, I would try to find something you're passionate about. I hope that helps.

Paul’s Answer

If you have good grades and academic abilities, I would look at the online market for tutors, editors, writers and educational consultants.

Many students (college and high school), consult with online websites and are willing to pay to get assistance from a college student or academic consultant to assist them with their school course subjects.

Rebecca’s Answer

Thank you for your question. I am not sure why you would like to make a lot of monies. Do you encounter any financial problem? Do you have a chance to discuss with your parents or mentors on the challenges you are facing?
If you would like to earn some pocket monies, below are my suggestions :
1. Explore any part time opportunities, e.g. working in school like librarian, fast food shop, super market, etc.
2. Explore any freelance opportunities online. You have to have high awareness to ensure that the employer is trust worth or discuss with your parents first.
3. Do you have any strength or interest that you could consider to start your own business?
Having said that, your safety is the most important and ensure the job is suitable for a student at your age.
Hope this helps! Good Luck!

Patrícia’s Answer

Hi Roy,
There is really no way to make a lot of money fast and with no consequences.
I'd challenge you to really think about what you like to do, what do yoi see yourself doing as a job, that doesn't make you feel like you're just working, but actually enjoying the journey.
Once you figure that out, do your research and try to find jobs that fit your interests.
Its likely that then, to achieve that, you'll need to invest in training, courses, etc., and if so, make a plan, understand whats the money investment you'll have to make to pursue that goal, and if you don't have that money with you, don't get discourage, but find a part-time job, where you can make savings to then invest in getting that technically knowledge in your field.
Aim to be good at what you're learning, engage in communities of that field, meet new people, do your networking, hop in LinkedIn, find mentors, read a lot, and start sending your CV to job posts in that area.
That may take some time, but it really is how everything begins, once you're in your field, receiving the recognition you worked for, translated also in money, you'll see it was all worth it, and that's the journey needed to become financially independent.
Hope this helps ;)

Kanon’s Answer

Unfortunately, that isn't possible outside of inheriting money :). My suggestion would be to change your focus off money, and how much, to what are you good at and interested in. Then focus on creating ways to use those skills and interests to do something that benefits/serves people. The more people you serve and the better you serve them, the more money you will make. If this means working at a company, find one that aligns with your skills and interests, then serve them very well by working hard to make the company more profitable and successful. This in turn will benefit you. You could also start your own business that uses your skills and interests to benefit/serve others in some way. This path has more risk of failure, but also is the most common path to extreme wealth.

No matter what though, there are no free and easy lunches. All people with wealth (except inheriting it), worked very hard for a very long time and took calculated risks to get where they are.

Rama’s Answer

Roy, it is a great goal to have.

While there is no easy way as Ms Patricia so rightly put it, I like to outline some points so it can help you.

1. First keep up the desire to make money period. (Easy and quick can come later)
2. Tell yourself it takes a lot of effort to earn money and you are ready to work for it.
3. Ask yourself what are the top few things you are passionate about or good at?
4. Pick 1-2 interesting things you want to offer - and train yourself in those skills
5. Once you reach a level of confidence seek opportunities to showcase your talent and earn money.

Hope it helps in developing your goals. Best!!
