1. Are you talented or able to become talented and/or well connected? Become an actor, musician, artist, comedian, writer, youtube star, etc.

2. Are you super smart or incredibly creative? Create an innovative new app/website/business/technology that can make you some money.

3. Are you willing to have sex on camera and for it to be shown at will online? Do porn.

I'd say about $10 million usd is the minimum that you'd need to be set for life.

But a lot of actors aren't well paid though hell even with those talents you need marketing pull and that's costly hell even the second idea unless you get lucky and you come up with something at the right place and right time best not to try those.


Number 3 is a crap shoot most porn actors aren't well paid and the industry is trash.

If you become an actor, and make it to the "big screen" in hollywood, you will be paid well. Those people are insanely rich multi millionaires. I didn't say it would be easy or would not require an investment, but the OP is asking how to become rich.

Of course it's risky to try those things, but if you succeed like Mark Zuckerberg or other techy entrepreneurs, the reward is great.

Female porn stars make a lot of money and very quickly. Even when they are just starting out. For the male pornstars, it varies. The men make less than the women, but if they get popular they can make money.

They're all ideas for how to get rich. I didn't say they'd be easy.

It's not so much easy but it's more of possible I don't think someone really should come to SS if they want how to get rich ideas. For an actor it's incredibly tough to make it to the big screen you need clout and the right part for you, and an opportunity they aren't using much untested talent for something like a Marvel movie.

For the second one sure however those are some big ifs they didn't just succeed because they came up with an idea timing and connections played a big role as well.

When it comes to porn industry let's just say it's a very very dark industry that can also involve some pretty bad illnesses and STDs.

No doubt, although this is the offtopic forum, so this is the "free for all" part of the forum. I know it's tough and you need clout. That's why I also said "well connected" on top of talent. Of course, no one starts out doing a big budget superhero film. You'd have to start out likely as an extra, doing commercials, or even as a PA and try to work your way up into those opportunities. That's where you would have to take the opportunity to network (i.e. get connected).

I know that for the second one. There are plenty of people that start their own businesses and fail. But if you succeed at it, it can make you rich.

For porn, yeah I've heard some bad things about it. But as far as the std's, I'm pretty sure they get tested since they "work" so much.

It is also tough for someone to become rich by winning the lottery or starting a business just so you know. Again, I wasn't saying my ideas would make one rich overnight, but they were suggestions since he asked.

To know how much money you need to never work again you just need some simple math skills.
-how much are your monthly bills?
-how long do you plan to live and/or until you qauilfy for disability when your older.

if my monthly bills are around 1600 dollars a month. this is including things I dont really need like Netflix, internet. but do include food.
lets say i lived another 10 years. (just an example) there is 12 months in a year so 10*12= 120 months. at 1600 dollars a month id need roughly around 192k just to pay bills and food.

You can look into getting food stamps and government assistance depending on where you live and really crunch the numbers.

Another thing to consider is how much you would make if you worked another lets say 30-40 years? the average salary is around 35k and if you have kids thats not alot of money. luckily I dont and this isnt the worst but not nearly the best. If I had a 40 year career i would make around 1.4 mil. this is including that the economy would change and inflation will happen.

everyone is different and really getting 'rich' in most cases takes alot of luck. You have to be at the right place at the right time with the right product or service to even have a chance. or you can go to college and get a good degree but even that isnt certain to work.

You could become a castaway and live off the land if you have some good survival skills and this is basically free!!

Take look at mr moustache money blog for ideias

Since youre only 26 you could invest in some certifications, cisco for networking ( at minimum ccnp) , red hat for linux , or learn programming specially python and create some projects in github to build your resume. All this would allow you get a mutch better paying job

Dont focus on getting rich, for the ones who make it at least thousands of other dreamers failed at it...be realist.

Get into finance. Plenty of people in the industry just live comfortably off their books and the barrier for entry is shockingly low. You don't even need to be the next Bernie Madoff to live in comfort.

Yes, like some people already told you, It's easier than be a porn actor/actress but still it's very hard haha, I once tried to be a cam girl and I failed because you need money for start and a lot of efforts: you need invest in good cameras, lighting, a nice background, etc. Obviously I quit, I don't have the energy and will hahaha. But maybe if you try you can be successful and have a relatively luxury life after a while

look up info on trades , some of the more specialized ones make quite a bit and only take a little training.
Yep I'm going on a year now of being an electrician apprentice. I hate working regardless especially labor jobs but if I'm gonna break my back and knees might as well work a trade that pays well. It makes good money, no debt, pay as you go, learn a lot of handy work. It's hard work but it's very fullfilling doesn't mean I want to die any less.

Assuming you live in the USA, and want an annual income of $30,000USD, after taxes, (if you are single, that should be enough to live frugally as long as the rent is reasonable), you’ll need at least $1,000,000USD invested in a mutual fund, averaging 4% anual returns.

This way you’ll be protected against an inflation rate of 2% (the current Fed target). Keep in mind I’m not a lawyer, and not American, so I may be underestimating or overestimating the tax burden (I assumed a 20% federal tax on capital income). You can do better in the stock market, with an index fund, but not by a very significant margin.

On the other hand, you could just buy an annuity (for 30k/year). You can probably buy one for 700,000USD, but you’ll have a smaller hedge against future inflation (and the taxes are murkier too, I think you’ll need a bigger premium just to offset taxes/inflation). So 1 million dollars is still in the ballpark.
