    How to make $500 a day? Share pls!

    I know it sounds stupid, but who knws, maybe sometimes making money can be reali easy. Sometimes luck though. Meet right ppl at the rite time...? Just for some feedbacks and discussion....

    Case Study 1:
    I have a frd, his father sells beehoon and mee (raw), to hawker stalls. He is not a supplier, but something like a sub distributor. Drives a van everyday to deliver. He lives is a semi D/terrace worth more than $1M... Selling bee hoon and mee...... hmmmm

    Case Study 2:
    I have another frd, his uncle used to be a taxi driver. Now drives a lambo gallardo. What he do? He sell rice. As in raw grains. Low grade grains, import from india (ya he is an Idian), and distribute to shops, customers mainly foreign workers.

    Case Study 3:
    My cousin's bf's uncle, used to work in a BAO making factory. after some arguement, he quit, nearly bankrupt. He started his own bao factory and making BIG BUCKS! Distributing bao to coffeeshops. He just bought a landed property and a porsche...

    Case Study 4:
    I have 2 frds, opens a printing shop. Print brochures, catalogues, restaurent menu... One of them jus bought aa Audi S5, the other guy jus bought a BMW 7 Series... Damn!!!

    My point is, these are all straight forward businesses. But they are reali lucky to get into rite thing at the rite time. I thought of many ways to make money. I don't like investment, insurance, property lines etc. More of the above 4 kinds of related domestic businesses...

    Anybody care to share, any ideas to make $200-$500 a day. I consider myself hardworking. Thought of mobile car grooming, but after some calculation, canot reach that target... Thought of being a hawker, char kway teow kind, but I m not a good cook, hah...

    How any bro, sis, come across any good stories, maybe can give me some thinker! SHARE SHARE SHARE!!!

    i only have this to share: same same slogan from Gold 90 FM, you will only hear the good things from these chaps - they will never tell you that they owe finance 6 months instalments for the Mercs or BMW.

    notwithstanding, still possible to make big bucks, or seemingly big bucks.

    i am not the guru as i am an obedient subordinate to a big enterprise.

    1. must have balls - stay out of your comfort zone.
    2. know the right people
    3. work smart
    4. look like you can make it [see my pt above]

    get the book: why is that idiot richer than me [title something like that]

    most lines are good but not all can make it - real estate, insurance, blah.

    no one will ever share with you a winning formula one, for that matter.

    God bless.

    Case Study 5

    a friend's friend sell shampoo to saloons. Non branded shampoo - so no need to fight for dealership or pay royalty. He drives honda odysey for delivery but got other cars and live in condo. I ever asked to join but then find out the "biz" is very tricky. It involves a lot of KTV & night club activities (non optional) and pay angpow here and there. 1 month net profit is $20K+ and he say got competitor with gangster backing. so now his biz not so good unless you want to go all the way to compete with the competitor

    Check this out:

    This one makes so much sense...

    A boat docked in a tiny Mexican fishing village.

    A tourist complimented the local fishermen
    on the quality of their fish and asked
    how long it took him to catch them.


    "Not very long." they answered in unison.


    "Why didn't you stay out longer and catch more?"


    The fishermen explained that their small catches were
    sufficient to meet their needs and those of their families.


    "But what do you do with the rest of your time?"


    "We sleep late, fish a little, play with our children, and take siestas with our wives.
    In the evenings, we go into the village to see our friends, have a few drinks, play the guitar, and sing a few songs.
    We have a full life."


    The tourist interrupted,
    "I have an MBA from Harvard and I can help you!
    You should start by fishing longer every day.
    You can then sell the extra fish you catch.
    With the extra revenue, you can buy a bigger boat."


    Fisherman: "And after that?"


    "With the extra money the larger boat will bring, you can buy a second one and a third one
    and so on until you have an entire fleet of trawlers. Instead of selling your fish to a middle man,
    you c! an then negotiate directly with the processing plants and maybe even open your own plant.
    You can then leave this little village and move to Mexico City , Los Angeles , or even New York City !
    From there you can direct your huge new enterprise."


    Fisherman: "How long would that take?"

    Tourist: "Twenty, perhaps twenty-five years." replied the tourist.

    Fisherman: "And after that?"

    "Afterwards? Well my friend, that's when it gets really interesting, " answered the tourist, laughing. "When your business gets really big, you can start buying and selling stocks and make millions!"

    "Millions? Really? And after that?" asked the fishermen.


    "After that you'll be able to retire, live in a tiny village near the coast,
    sleep late, play with your children, catch a few fish, take a siesta with your wife
    and spend your evenings drinking and enjoying your friends."


    Fisherman:
    "With all due respect sir, but that's exactly what we are doing now. So what's the point wasting twenty-five years?" asked the Mexicans.



    And the moral of this story is:

    Know where you're going in life....
    you may already be there
