6 Side hustles you can Start Right Now to Boost your Investment Portfolio
A fat investment portfolio requires work
This may be a tough pill to swallow, but I’m just going to come out and say it. You will not become wealthy working only 40 hours a week. There’s good chance you’ve read or at least heard of Tim Ferriss’s ‘4 hour work week’. I remember reading that book a few years ago. It lit my mind on fire. But it also twisted reality for me a touch. I became obsessed with working less. Working smarter rather than harder, but still working less. While you certainly can become a millionaire and at some point put everything on autopilot, it still requires a GREAT deal of bumping, grinding & overtiming.
To become wealthy, you’ve got to put in the time and effort. And then you need to be smart with that money and place it into assets. Such as an investment portfolio.
Generate more money for your investment portfolio by finding a better paying job, working more at your primary gig, or developing a side hustle. A side hustle or second job is probably your quickest way to generating additional cash flow. Here a few suggestions that you can implement right now to begin generating some more income for your investment portfolio.
1. Gambling to boost your investment portfolio
You may not hear this suggestion too often, but may people bring in substantial money playing cards. I know a few individuals who even travel the world doing it full time. It takes a bit of time to develop this hustle to a full time point. But for many people with a brain, they can get in the green quickly. I only suggest you invest you your willing to lose and avoid the rock star lifestyle that can accompany this game. With the ease of online casino sites, you can start whenever and play whenever, from wherever. Definitely something to think about.

If you are a native English speaker, there is a huge opportunity for you to put your mother tongue to work. A large part of the world whom are interested in learning English are now looking online for tutors.
