9 Ways to Get Rich Quicker

Get rich quick

As a general rule, the team at Kiplinger champions the art of getting rich slowly. "Don't go for the home run," Knight Kiplinger tells us in his classic column "8 Keys to Financial Security." "In investing, as in baseball, those who swing for the fences do hit the occasional home run. But they strike out a lot, too, and their lifetime batting average -- average annual total return -- suffers accordingly."

But maybe you're willing to take some calculated risks in pursuit of the freedom that money (and lots of it) can give you to make choices that can bring satisfaction, whether that means buying your dream home, giving generously to charity or escaping the 9-to-5 grind. In that spirit, we focus on nine faster roads to riches, with varying levels of risk. The people we interviewed who have made it big didn't always get there on the first or second try. But they all share essential qualities for success: passion, persistence and patience.

I wrote an article on the simple process of getting rich. It's a no BS approach, and is definitely not a "get rich quick" scheme. You can check it out at http://www.squidoo.com/becoming-rich-is-as-easy-as-123

I started studying on what it is that those who have wealth and money have in common that everyone else does not seem to have. To me benefit a man by the name of Napoleon Hill has already done this with men such as Henry Ford and Thomas Edison.

The first key he talks about is desire; check out my blog post about this topic over at http://jrswab.com/2013/09/14/desire-leads-to-riches/

Those are all good ideas, however, the BEST way to get rich quick with little money is with penny stocks. You don't even have to be a professional trader. You can sign up to a penny stock alert newsletter that basically tells you when the stock is going up, when to invest, and when to get out. My favorite site is www.pennystockpinnacle.com i've been making thousands of dollars because of these guys.
