1. Sink a half court shot.
On January 25, 2013, Michael Drysch grenade-tossed a half court shot that instantly earned him $75k.
2. Walk some dogs.
They don’t walk themselves. At $20 for a half-hour walk, and you’ve only got 625 hours to go.
3. Join a virtual jury
Help lawyers practice for trial AND collect up to $20 dollars an hour
4. Start a pyramid scheme
If you start your own pyramid scheme, you are guaranteed to be at the top of the pyramid! Taking this approach will take at least a year to get off the ground, but once you hit your stride the cash will be flowing in.
5. Collect discarded coins and jewelry on the beach
Assuming you work really-really hard, you can probably find $25 worth of metal per day. This means it would take you about three years if you don’t take any days off.
6. Sell some plasma
Two trips a week to the blood bank can add up over time.
7. Sell your hair
Prices vary wildly based on the quality of hair, but the average person can generally expect to fetch a few hundred dollars for ten inches. Based on the rate that hair grows, it’ll take at least a few decades to hit your goal.
8. Ask your strange but wealthy uncle
You don’t know how he made his money, no one does, but he’s family and it probably can’t hurt to ask. He might say yes, but then again, he might also say no.
