8. Enter Contests
Perhaps the easiest way to make money fast is to win it. To get started, check out websites like Contestgirl to find out what contests and sweepstakes are available.
You can treat entering contests like a job by getting organized and spending hours each day submitting forms; however, it’s important to know that you’re unlikely to be chosen as the winner of a contest that will set you up for life. Additionally, you will have to pay taxes on your winnings, so be sure to take that into account before spending all your “free money.”
9. Enter Competitions
If you have time and a special skill, consider entering a competition with a cash prize. At worst, you participate, fail and wind up with a good story to tell. If you win, the prizes can be substantial.
