Seeing as you hadn't previously posted that you flipped houses, I can't understand what made you so upset. It's not like I was taking a shot at what you do. I was simply sharing my experience. It failed because we finished the house in 2008. At that time you where only 20 years old so I wouldn't expect you to understand what was happening with the housing market. If you are doing good, great for you.

My point was, NOTHING comes easy or fast. Are you telling me that flipping the homes that you are so successful with are easy to do? I know for a fact, they are not. And it definitely doesn't happen fast.

Once you stop being a "right now" person, you will see what I am talking about. I wouldn't think you would know what I am trying to tell you as this seems to be the motto with your generation. Lastly, stop worrying about flipping houses and go take a grammar class. Was that really all 1 sentence??
I disregarded my grammar and replied in frustration. Congrats you know where the sentence was suppose to stop and a new one begin. It still does not take away your comment "There is no way" since your not an entrepreneur i can understand how that means nothing to you, but it is rather offensive to me. At the same time it pisses me off for you to try and deter someone else with those words.

I was flipping houses when i was 19, so yes i am rather familiar with the housing market in 2008 and apparently had slightly more insight because while you failed i succeeded. Age means nothing IMO.

You are correct that nothing comes easy, that should have been your post then. I never dog anyone with telling them "there is no way". Especially when they are trying to learn. Your also right in saying that things do not happen "fast" (depending on what one's definition of "fast" is). I was not arguing with these points at all.

You are also right with my generation living for the "right now" and when they try to get out people throw the stones of negativity towards them and they fall back into the ranks of conformity. Precisely what i was trying to avoid happening here.

My sincere apologies if certain words i used offended you, certainly not my intention. Negative people just fire me up and i try to stop them often from throwing those stones at people trying to change or learn.

I understand what you are saying. Now, just so it is more clear, here is what I am saying. As my father was in a wheel chair since I was in grade school and he was a self employed electrician, who do you think did the work? It was me. I know all about the idea of working for yourself and trying new things. After working for Motorola for years and getting let go twice, I decided to make my dreams come true and work for myself. I tried several things and they where successful. Was it enough to pay the $1,000 a month for medical and dental for my kids and wife? No, it wasn't. I had an even more successful lawn business that I sold after 4 years of owning. I had 41 residential and 3 commercial accounts. I worked at Motorola from 6pm to 6am, came home and cut grass until noon, then slept and went back to work. Although it was successful, it was a lot of work. I grew my business by 100% every year. So, the money didn't come FAST as the OP had asked. I decided to use my knowledge instead and stop worrying about trying to make money fast. I have made over $400k in the past two years working a regular job and get to spend every other month at home.

The OP asked how to make money FAST, not ways to make money without working a regular job. There is no way to make money FAST. Nothing in this world is free.

Best way to make money fast is to not spend it foolishly, one of the hardest things to do.

I like this saying: don't spend money you don't really have, on things you don't really need, to impress people you don't really care about.

Pretty simple, eh?

I think this would be a good place to start.

They don't like DI Yourselfers, but if you log in your ID as self employed , contractor....or just make something up...you can get by.

Very good ideas here, they are all professionals.

Good Luck...
