Ready to start playing with your money? Not interested in complicated businesses or boring bank C.D.’s? Here are some methods that aren’t quite a business because you can do them once, or just when you feel like it. Start small and the risk is small.

 

Loan Sharking

Years ago a friend got a good job when I loaned him $300 to buy the necessary tools.

I took half the profit ($500) for putting up the money for the two weeks.

 

I’ve done this many times with friends who know cars but don’t have cash.
