Fastest Way To Get Rich Quick!

Most people want to be comfortable enough financially to be able to live a lifestyle that suits them and with the freedom to do what they want. Apart from winning the lotto, the fastest way to get rich quick is going to need your input and some hard work! But with time effort and a plan, anything is achievable if you put your mind to it!

Invest in yourself!

What do you know? What are you good at? And what do you love? If you are creative, leverage off that, if you are a writer get writing, if you are a traveler share your experiences.

Harness and focus on what you know, then get better at it! Invest in yourself, and furthering your knowledge and learnings! Self improvement will be the best investment you could ever make. Then once you feel you know enough, share it with the world and develop your own brand!

Use the tools that are widely available to everyone including the internet, social media and networking forums. You are a resource, and learn how to use your own knowledge and maximise your own earning capacity. Make sure you exploit every avenue and unashamedly promote what you have to offer. In addition, align your branding with affiliates that are related to what you are promoting, Wealthy Affiliate is a great tool to help you learn how to do this, with an in built network and community that will assist in growing your brand, it’s free start up membership is well worth checking out!

You are the resource you are going to be marketing. There are so many tools to get your brand out there, so invest the time into thinking about what your strengths are, make those strengths stronger if they need work, educate yourself, do the extra training required to improve, then get yourself out there using all the mechanisms that are available.

Build you own foundations and back yourself! With your own effort and drive to succeed and achieve, you will get there.

Make a plan and ask for feedback!

While you are investing in yourself, make a plan outlining the steps you are going to take, and the milestones you need to reach in order to achieve your final outcome. By investing in yourself you have already made the first step.

Go through the brain storming phase, look at what you want to achieve and how you are going to achieve it. Assess your end goal through various angles, taking into consideration set backs, and pit falls of failure! Consider getting feedback from a friend, advisor or someone in your network, that will give you honest and constructive feedback. And take this feedback on board! Being aware of where you could potentially fail, can allow you to plan how not to fail. Many businesses will fail, so read my article here, and know how to avoid some of these pitfalls.

Once the brain storming phase is complete, write down your plan. Set out your steps, goals and milestones into a chronological order that will document your journey through the development stage to final product. And make sure you take time to celebrate achieving the milestones. Working hard and then rewarding yourself for your achievements will keep you motivated to continue on your journey.

Regardless of if you have a tangible product to offer, or a service or even a blog, to make money you need to be offering a solution to someones problem, something that other people are willing to pay money to have access to, and this is your product!

Charting the course of your journey from start up to success will ensure you know when you stray off path, and allow you to focus and re-align to get you back on track to getting rich quick.

Don’t risk it to get the biscuit

If you don’t know anything about the stock market, and aren’t a property mogul chances are, you aren’t going to make money on something you know nothing about! So don’t risk the funds you do have, by naively thinking that everyone that invests money in the stock market or property comes out with the big bucks!

Stock brokers (generally) know what they are doing, and a lot of the time they aren’t actually doing it with their own money! So why risk yours, when you don’t know a thing about what you are looking to invest in. Unless becoming a stock trader is your goal, and you are willing to invest in yourself and learn how to do it properly, avoid investing your time on half-baked ideas that other people have had success in.

Focus on your own journey instead, and forget about others. Your time will be better spent, fine-tuning your own skills and focusing on that, rather than focusing on the mechanisms other people have used in order to achieve financial success.

Don’t put all your eggs in the one basket

I hear pretty regularly that you need to focus 110% and invest all your money and time into achieving your goals in order to get rich and reap the rewards! However, I am inherently risk adverse and I think this is just crazy talk!! Unless you have a plan as to how you are going to make a return to cover your capital outlay, do not bet it all on red as soon as you step into the casino!

This is your life, this is not a game! You need to consider your obligations, (kids, mortgage, debts) and make sure they are all covered before investing copious amount of money into something you aren’t sure how quickly will return money.

Do you really need to spend $100,000 on the newest piece of equipment, when you are only making $500 a week from that asset? Put what you are looking to invest down on paper and then work out what it will return for you, and assess how quickly it will pay for itself by making you money. If you are looking to invest ALOT of money into something, seek professional advice before committing and make sure you consider any legalities if relevant.

Avoid scams!

There are plenty out there, you have seen them I’ve seen them. Their promise is to get you rich quick, BUT first up you need to buy their products at a highly discounted rate for a limited time only, and take the training which will cost you a few thousand $$. 

You will be told to make a list of key targets/prospects/ poor unfortunate souls, including your friends, family and acquaintances you spoke to years ago, then cold call them and put the hard sell on. Don’t forget you will probably also need to reach monthly sales targets, trying to rope other people in on a promise your not even sure you what it is. Run away from these! If it sounds too good to be true, it is!

Look for a mentor

Look to people who have genuinely achieved success. Someone that has done the hard yards, worked from the ground up and achieved personal wealth. Admire them, celebrate their success, and find out how they went about becoming successful. What did they sacrifice? See how much money they out layed up front. And then assess if the method they applied is something you can try to realistically replicate within your own brand. After all imitation is the greatest form of flattery.

Your mentor doesn’t necessarily have to be someone you are in communication with, it could be a role model, someone you admire, or someone you would like to emulate. (Draw the line at stalking though, that’s not fun for anyone.)

Get your brand out there!

Once you have invested in yourself and you know the path for your journey has been charted, shamelessly self promote!

Get your brand out there, be proud of your achievements and tell everyone what you have done! The fastest way to get rich quick is to let everyone know what you have to offer or how you are going to help them! There are over 3 billion people online, which is a huge pool of potential wealth and they want to know what you have to say! So make sure you get your network working for you, and get your name and brand out there.

Realistically, the get rich quick schemes out there, especially the ones that require you to pay, are not legitimate! If they were, then EVERYONE would be doing it! To get rich quick and fast it’s going to be 110% up to you!

So what are you going to do to achieve your dreams? I’d love to know, please comment below!

    Hey Nicole,

    love your work. Another great post about how to succeed and the fastest way to get rich quick. Love it. Definitely avoid the scams and there are many out there for sure.

    A mentor is great advice someone who has been there and done it. I think the thing I find the hardest to do is to ask for help. I ask now but it took me a while. Will share this as it needs to be read by many. Cheers,


    • Nicole

      Aaaahhh Kev, loving your regular comments. Always good to see you name pop up in my comments listing. Thanks again for such positive support and reinforcing my avoid the scams point! So many out there. Asking for help is so hard, I think we inherently hold our cards close to our chest, and by admitting we struggle with something is like admitting a weakness. But it takes a strong person to ask for help, as you now know! 🙂
      Look forward to your future comments Kev! See you around soon 🙂

  • Sophia

    Hey there,

    Thank you for this empowering post. I am a single mom and struggling to make things work, while raising my 18 month son. You know, I want to make sure my baby has everything and its really hard to keep up. I would love an opportunity to make money on my terms and have financial freedom. Where are some good places to find a mentor? And how can one go about developing their own brand?

    • Nicole

      Hi Sophia, you should absolutely check out Wealthy Affiliate, there are so many successful mentors within the community who are willing to share their success stories and help each other out. Please check out my review on the Wealthy Affiliate here if you would like to know more about it.
      I’d be surprised if you don’t find a mentor within the community. A mentor could be anyone you admire, a single mother who has succeeded in her chosen field, someone inspirational who has achieved against the odds, really depending on what you are trying to achieve the options for mentors are endless.
      With regards to your brand, it’s what separates you from everyone else doing something similar to yourself. What makes people want to come see you, visit your site, ask for your help? What do you offer that others don’t. Is it your sass? Is it your experience? Is it the way you write. You can also look to other bloggers, or instagram pages or people who take your interest and then analyse what made you think of them? Is that their brand that’s been developed that pulled you in?
      I’d be more than happy to chat with you about this offline further if you wanted, so please feel free to email me at and we can look at forming a strategy to develop your brand. 🙂

  • Glen Palo

    Nicole, I enjoyed reading your post. You show the importance of creating a business around a passion or skill set. If someone does not love what they are doing, then they probably will not succeed. And, if they are chasing money instead of focusing on what they love to do, they will start chasing the next shiny object that comes along. Too many business opportunities promote the idea that anyone can be successful with the promoted bizop.

    • Nicole

      Hi Glen, you are right the passion needs to be there for what the business idea is, if you aren’t passionate about what you are doing, you customers or consumers will know, and then question why they should support something you arent full into yourself. Plus you wont be happy and so your business is bound to struggle. If you do something that makes you happy than you are already half way to success. Agree, there are many “business opportunities” wrapped in a nice shiny webpage, but they sometimes arent what they promise to be. This is also why I 100% back Wealthy Affiliate, as you can be used successfully within any business if applied with a bit of thought. 🙂

  • Tony B

    Hey Nicole,
    I like how you’ve framed this, to me you’ve highlighted the right attitude and mindset are ultimately only half the package. Mentoring and support is the other half. Keeping laser focused on what you know as your springboard. I love how we all interpret this differently.

    Tony B

    • Nicole

      Tony, mindset is absolutely only half of the challenge and mentoring and support is just as important. I think its such an important one for people to lean on and find support in others. We should all be helping each other grow and pushing each other to get the best out of ourselves. Thanks for commenting. 🙂

    Hello and thanks so much for sharing. This is much food for thought that will really help all of us especially for those who may be thinking on getting into this line of work. Tons of good information that is well detailed.

    • Nicole

  • Stella

    Absolutely loved this post! I could feel your passion leaping off the screen.

    I totally agree with a lot of the points you have written, especially about stocks and trading.
    I sunk almost £300 into Bitcoin Trader Software just a month ago and lived on pennies for a week.
    Fortunately I was allowed to take back £120 to pay some bills. Trading is definitely not my forte – yet!

    Networking and building my brand on Facebook is something I will definitely plan in fine detail. As my pastor preached this morning – “Stay highly connected”.

    I could go on about various nuggets in your post, but will stop for now.

    Thanks for sharing inspiration.

    • Nicole

      Stella, thank you so much for taking the time to write such a heartfelt comment, I really appreciate you telling me your experience with Bitcoin. I would have no idea where to start, but it seems to be gaining abit of momentum and recognition as a true option for some as an income earner. Sounds like you are looking at researching it further, and I’d love to know how you go, please keep me posted, and good luck with the Facebook networking and branding. 🙂

  • Connie

    Hi Nicole I really like reading your post. You tell people how to use their passion that they love, by putting it in to a business and they will succeed. You have a way of empowering people to achieve their dreams. Keep up the hard work. Connie

    Get rich quick scams are so prevalent online these days your post will be that breath of fresh air.

    Thank you


    • Nicole

  • Diana

    This is some great advice to get rich quick! I read recently that the chances of you dying from fireworks is more likely than you ever winning the lotto!

    That being said, I totally agree with you that taking risks to achieve your dream lifestyle is not the way to go. If anything, it’s the fastest way to lose the money you already have!

    Investing in yourself and leveraging what you’re already good at is the way to go.

    Thanks for sharing Nicole,
