What have you already tried?

Reading MJs books is a fast route to learn how to earn $10k in a short time. The threads marked GOLD are also a good place to start. I doubt anyone will give you more constructive advice than that.

I could tell you it's possible to earn $10k this month freelancing, but it's not likely to happen because you don't know the process. Someone else will tell you it's possible by reselling items on craigslist or ebay, but you won't have insight into the process and therefore you won't earn $10k very fast.

You could offer services locally. That's probably the fastest way for you. Offer to do something for others that they might pay for. You'll still have to develop a process for it though, so you won't make $10k overnight.

If you're really in a pickle, you could try crowdfunding on a site like GoFundMe, but even that requires you to spend time researching, learning, and building a process before you have success, so unless you have 10,000 friends on Facebook who'd donate $1 each, it's unlikely even a charity would bring you $10k quickly.

Bottom line, there is no fast way to $10k unless you can make yourself really valuable to other people in some way. To "get" $10k you have to offer something worth $10k.

If I needed to earn $10k fast and didn't have a process already, I'd probably search IceCreamKid's GOLD thread on carpet cleaning and go from there with a local service business. There's enough detail in that thread to get started with very little. Probably under $100 depending on what service you end up offering.

Sell everything you own that's not bolted down? If your car is worth more than $15,000 and paid off, sell it and buy an old Toyota that's $5k or less.

You could also get up leaves for people. Maybe $400 a weekend. Or stain decks, or seal driveways. Maybe see if someone will let you drive a snow plow on snow days?

Define 'a short time'.

On a scale of 'want playoff tickets' to 'someone is going to jail' how badly is the money needed?

Is it 'all or nothing', or would something greater than $0 help?

Figure out what value you provide. Figure out how much time you have. Pick a plan (and a backup plan). Get to work.

- What's the 10k for?
- How quick is "quickly"
- What money, if any, do you have to spend to start with?
- What assets do you own?
- What's your current debt to equity ratio?
- What skills do you currently posses?

Don't actually answer those - it's just to say there are so many variables to consider that there is no "one best way" that could be recommended.

The difference between what I'd be willing to do for 10k to save my son's life in 3 days vs fixing a car I need for work in 3 months are two very, very different situations that dictate the level of commitment I'm willing to put in to get the funds.

@MJ DeMarco I try to write every reply as something for those coming behind. Someone will see this and it might help them. Besides, I could never provide as much value here as I have already received. :)

+1@JAJT nailed it on this one.

It would be ironic if Nigerian scammers have been so successful, that scammers from other countries now pretend to be from Nigeria.

I can't help but be really impressed by the sincere and genuine replies to a post which I originally thought would be getting way less effort in responses.

This forum is great.

I feel like a heartless person now.

OP is obviously fake, or even a troll. Whatever. I'm still convinced feedback provided in this thread will serve as a food for thought for others who value contribution of our legendary members.

Solving Pain
Usually money in a quick period of time requires:
1.) highly risky speculation
2.) taking unethical actions
3.) doing degrading things to/for others.

That is not a fastlane to anywhere.

Confront this problem head on and use it as an FTE. Then, draw upon this reminder to follow through on your very personal decision to take ownership of your life. Every.Single.Day.

This is nothing to take lightly. It isn't some magic popsicle you lick for a few minutes...

If you're sincere about changing your life, head over to the hustles and freelancing section. This will prime you for applied learning in follow-through, selling, systematic thinking, and being resourceful. You can leverage such skills in filling even more substantial market gaps.

You see, this is a red pill you ingrain into yourself. This ain't easy like the movies.

help from the community to help me get to $10k in a short time.

Wow, just a nice round sum of $10K? Why not $11,300? or $8,800?

A request of $10K makes it clear it's just a number you made up and there is no specific reason for it other than wanting it.

In such a short time he has already moved to the United States!

Yup, makes my job much easier.

If you're caught lying to the forum, you're banned. He started in Nigeria, moved to India, and now he's in the US. Uh, OK. Doubt the avatar is him too.

He's gone.
