How do you legally raise money in a short amount of time?

Asked by charliecompany34 (7785points) September 27th, 2010

ok, so you have a goal to reach by february 2011, but the lottery is too “chancy” and the casino move is just as unlikely. ok, and we’re not robbing a bank or a 7–11 either.

when you were in a pinch for money outside your regular work earnings (including doing overtime), what “legal” fund-raising tactics do you/did you resort to?

Cut back on expenses, take in a house-mate, get a second job, take out a loan, ask a friend or family member for a a loan with a business plan on how you could pay them back and stick to it. You could always take the Anna Nicole Smith approach and seek out a very rich partner who will support you.

Go to Amsterdam and sell your body or pot.

Sell something of value. If the cash is the main thing and not the profit, I’d sell at a loss if necessary in order to turn the asset liquid.

Ask your grandma, that’s what my grandsons do.

Sell everything I own, which is only good for a couple of hundred, since I only buy used.

Get a second job.
