Make Money In The Strangest Ways

At a campfire near a desert hot spring one winter, my wife and I met a man who sells stuffed animals on the side of the highway. When we saw him again, in his van full of stuffed animals, I pressed him for details. He buys used stuffed animals at thrift stores in bulk and then sells them alongside the highway. Early on, he even got the stores to give him the animals, with the agreement that he would return with the money or the animals the next and mega888
mega888 week.

In some small towns he can get a vendor’s permit cheaply ($18/year, for example). Otherwise he just sells until they chase him out of the county. He says he hasn’t been fined yet, and he claims he sold $4,000 worth his first month. I think he was exagerating, but because of him we include used stuffed animals in our flea market stands with some success.

 

 

Beating The Casino

 

I worked at a casino for years and I saw a lot of people foolishly writing down the numbers that came up on the roulette wheel. Foolishly, I say, because their their theories were nonsense. Casinos will always welcome these players and even hand them the pen and paper.

One player, however, was actually scientific about it. By finding a bias in the wheel, after “charting” it for 5,000 spins, he made thousands betting on just one or two numbers. When a number comes up, it pays 35 to 1. One of the numbers, because of manufacturing imperfections or whatever reason, was coming up 1 in 27 spins, instead of the average 1 in 38 spins.

He bet $10 a spin, and he profited $80 for every 27 spins of the wheel in the long run. That’s about $100 per hour. The ups and downs were dramatic though, so this is not for the faint-hearted. I saw this player lose as much as $700 in a night, but he later confided that he profitted over $80,000 before the casino changed the wheel.

 

Making Money With Real Estate

 

Making money with real estate isn’t unusual, of course, but there are less common ways to do it. There was a man, for example, who went around optioning hilltops. If the owner wanted $30,000 for the land, this invester might offer $300 for an option to buy the property at full price ($30,000) within six m
