11. Write Books

When I was contracted to write 101 Weird Ways to Make Money, I hated the tedious negotiations and editing discussions that went into getting the contract and writing the book. To avoid much of this hassle, write the book first and then submit it to publishers. (However, going the traditional publishing route isn’t easy — but that’s a story for another post.)

12. Self-Publish Ebooks

It costs nothing but your time to write and publish a book on Kindle, Amazon’s ebook platform. I made $2,000 with a book on ultralight backpacking that I wrote in less than a week. I even made a few bucks with my nonconformist, opinionated essay-books. I’ve never had to talk to anyone to sell these books.
