The quickest ways to make money may not at all be what you think. You're probably thinking about doing something such as mowing grass for the neighbors, raking leaves, and shoveling snow. Although these are great ways to make money in very little time, there are plenty of other ways as well.
First of all, what can you do? What are you good at? Think in terms of what you can do on a computer because, really, you want to be able to use your existing skills to do something from home. That's everyone's dream, right? Of course it is!
So check out Craigslist and some of the freelance job boards. Now, freelance job boards do not consist of just freelance writing jobs. You will also find data entry and various clerks jobs. You may even find positions as a virtual assistant.
Basically, you can have the work done in a matter of days and have your money in your hand not long after that. It is rather quick. The quicker you do the work, the faster you'll have the money. It is as simple as that. So do not do the physical labor if you do not have to. That's nothing you like it. If you like it, go for it.
Heck, you can mow the neighbor's grass for $ 20 and then come home and do some freelance work for someone. You do not have to do just one thing at a time. You can do several things to make the money that you need and you can make it quick. You can also have fun doing it.
