Chances are you are reading this article because you might be a bit curious about how one can possibly get rich quick. You have probably read many books, blogs, newsletters and emails all promising that you too can make fast money. Well, I’m here to tell you how people really get rich quick because it’s only right to spread the wealth.

#1: Be Born into a Rich Family—If your parents are excessively wealthy, the very second you are born and come into this world, you become rich. This is the probably the quickest way to riches. Though, I’m figuring you have already been born if you are reading this article, so this route might not work out for you.

#2: Marry Rich—If your spouse is rich, then most likely you become rich…as long as the prenuptial agreement states so. This path to money might take a bit of time as you will probably have to put in a few good years of your life for courting, unless you marry a celebrity who enjoys quick nuptials and probably quick divorces, too (here’s where that  prenuptial agreement comes in handy!). You also have to spend enough time with the wealthy to strike someone’s fancy, which could take some money that you probably do not have (or else you wouldn’t be reading this article).

#3: Win the Lottery—You can’t win if you don’t play, right? That $1 a week expense just might be your ticket to the millions. This is a great and fun way to getting rich as long as you don’t mind that whole “lottery curse” thing or the odds of your numbers being selected.

#4: Acquire an Inheritance—Your long lost aunt Sally just might make your day when you find out that she left you millions in her will. This really isn't a get rich quick route if your aunt lives 100 years or more. You could be waiting 20, 30, 50 years for this to happen. You could also be written out of the will if there’s any bad blood between family.

As you can see, these are a few ways to get rich quick, but how likely are these things going to happen? There’s no such thing as money for nothing.  If you’re looking to make money you will have to work at it. How hard you work depends on how much you money you want.

So How Do You Really Become Rich?

Instead of trying to get rich quick, I would recommend that you find ways to earn multiple streams of income and hopefully set up a way to earn all of these through passive income. Below are some ideas that might help you out.

You can start by saving money. The power of compounding interest is amazing if you are patient enough to let your money grow over time. You need to know how much money you want to save and learn how long you need to invest that money into a savings vehicle of some sort to earn what you want.

You can start your own business. Most, if not all people who have riches have owned their own business at one time or another. Learn from them. Read books, go to seminars, visit your local chamber of commerce or go back to school to learn how to start your own business and make a profit.

Blog or create a website for profit. There are many blogs and websites to sift through on how to make money from the comforts of your own home. Find one that you feel is reputable and easy to duplicate or get knowledge from and apply yourself to create an internet avenue of income.

Write a book. Everyone has a story to tell. Maybe yours might become a best seller one day or adapted to a make a TV series or movie. If you are able to get your book into enough hands of people over time, the royalties will allow you to sit back and enjoy life.

Write for profit. With so many blogs, books, magazines and websites on a variety of topics, you are bound to find one that just might pay you for your writing. Can't think of any that might work for you? What about writing for Infobarrel?

Getting rich quick is not something that is obtainable for everyone. Your best bet to accumulating riches is to keep seeking out information available to you and learn what those before you have done. It's going to take hard work, persistence and determination to find the right way for you to earn the money you want, but if you keep trying you will set yourself apart from all the others who quit when they find out there is no easy way to make money and get rich quick.
