Starting your own burger shop might work.

I'm guessing that anything IT related involves clients, which involves expectations (deadlines) for thing to get done.

The only thing I can think of is doing some creative freelance work such as an original painting that wasn't commissioned or academia research. Even with painting, it's not exactly easy for an unknown artist to get enough money to keep a living.

I think you have deadlines for that. I mean you can break them all you want but if you do it too much people will stop paying attention to you? maybe? I don't know about this stuff.

Your job can be
well paid

Whatever you do, to NOT have a single income stream, i.e. just one source of income. If you do, you will be too vulnerable.

write a novel

11 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2006-08-16 07:09 ID:aha6VvN3

Not a good idea to do that unless you're getting money while you do it via a second job, since writing a novel takes like six months to a few years to do.

On call computer technician. Start your own website/online company.

Actually, hell. Get a large sum of money together, and let's start a company together.

Invent something useful, Patent it. Live off the royalties.

What would >>1 develop? There seems to be a woefully small amount of stuff invented.

Useful stuff, mind you.

patent trolling seems like a waste of time, but you never hear about how successful it is

I'm not supporting it, I think patents are god awful

If you have ANY marketable skills, it would be smart to start your own business. You'll never get rich working for someone else.

OTOH, small business owners get tight deadlines.

Actually, I've given real, serious thought to this.

My main plan is, at the moment, finding a way to get large amounts of capital, like £2,000,000, invest it at at least 4% pa (very easy to do with any savings account, can probably get a higher rate of interest too). Then just live off the interest. Even if I'm reinvesting 2% a year to beat inflation, that's still £40,000 a year (about $80,000) interest.

And really, I think I could be perfectly happy on £25,000 a year - so that's £1,250,000 at 4% pa.

And, further, if I get a better interest rate (which is fairly easy to do, with investments 8% return is fairly common) this drops to £416,670.

Of course, getting these kinds of money in the first place will be difficult, but hey, I will probably inherit ~£200,000 from my parents so it's a start.

lol sorry... but that is some weak plan, you can invest money much less than and open up your own shop.
at let me tell you that getting 2 mils is impossible. yup impossible. money is one thing you can't get your hands on, and when you do , you waste it.

37 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2007-01-24 09:06 ID:Jxwu0U/g


Well, like I said, I'd only need 2 million if I wanted 40,000 a year and could only invest at 4%.

If I settled for £25,000 a year, and could invest it at 8%, then I'd only need £416,000 - which isn't a RIDICULOUS amount of money.

Hell, if I could live on £20,000 I could reduce this to £333,000.

During the daytime I play in Dragonforce
and during the night I strip at a gay bar
So my schedule is always rough
That's why I use Speed Stick deodorant
because it's as tough as my schedule
