I’m going insane!

Actually, that’s not completely true. My kids are driving my wife insane and she is driving me insane.

Okay that was a joke, too—sorry Emma, don’t kill me! In fact, my wife is so incredible with Jayden and Sara right now that I have a renewed sense of admiration for the love of my life.

I wouldn’t be able to write at all if it’s not for her sacrificing all her time to be with the kids. How does she do it?

Here are a few tips I gathered by observing.

7 Quick Ways to Make Money Investing $1,000

If you’re shrewd, you can turn one thousand bucks into even more money. Here’s how.

Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.


If you’re sitting on at least $1,000 and it’s scratching an itch in your pocket, consider investing it rather than spending it on something frivolous. But the question that then beckons us is: Can you really make money quickly investing with just $1,000? 

The answer to that is a resounding, “Yes.” 

While there are plenty of ways you can make money fast by doing odd jobs or generating it through things like affiliate marketing or email marketing, actually making money by investing with just $1,000 might present more challenges, and frankly, more risks. That is, of course, unless you know what you’re doing. 

However, all risks aside, even if you’re living paycheck-to-paycheck, you still may be able to conjure up $1,000 to put towards an investment if

6 Ways To Start Investing With Little Money

For many people, the word “investing” conjures up images of men in suits, monitoring the exchange of millions of dollars on a stock ticker.

I’m here to tell you: You don’t need to be the Wolf of Wall Street to start investing. It’s okay if you’re more of a mouse of Main Street. Even if you only have a few dollars to spare, your money will grow with compound interest.

The key to building wealth is developing good habits—like regularly putting money away every month. Swap out the barista-made cappuccinos for coffee at home and you could already be saving more than $50 a month.

Once you have a little money to play with, you can start to invest.

In 2020, you can get a date, a ride or a pizza with the swipe of a smartphone screen. Investing is no different. If you can automate your bills, why not
