Get (me) rich quick!
Work is fun and all, but I'm ready for something new. I'm entering my late 20s, and I've hardly traveled, I'm pale and out-of-shape, I'm cooped up in an office all day, and I don't have time for anything I want to do. So I've decided I need lots of money, so my time can be spent on other things besides work -- like foosball.
Unfortunately, I don't think the inheritance angle is going to pay off. I was at my parentsí house the other day, and I was disappointed by the amount of crystal and/or famous artwork laying around the house. So I crossed that off my list. The company I work for just got bought out, so I had some hope of some seroius cash for a few minutes, but apparently what I thought were my stock options turned out to be just a stack of office stationery I had in my bottom drawer. No money there, either. Thereís always the lottery, but I think thatís just a conspiracy run by the Knights of Columbus (since I canít figure out what it is they do, exactly). So I might actually have to work for my riches.
I don't want to quit my job until I know whatever money-making endeavor I choose starts to pay off, so that really limits my options, and I canít think of anything. So I'm open to some suggestions. Feel free to post any ideas you have: patents, businesses, pyramid schemes, whatever. I'm flexible. But as a general rule: the quicker and the richer, the better.
So get your brains going and make me rich!Posted by Kevin at May 25, 2004 02:38 PM
