Invest in real estate

If you want to make six figures in the next five years without quitting your job, investing in real estate is one of the best ways to do it.

You can still get involved with real estate investing even if you don’t have much money to start out with. There are plenty of opportunities out there that don’t require a lot upfront.

For example, there are many types of short-term loans that allow you to buy properties and then resell them quickly at a profit — with no risk and no money down!

There are also plenty of other options out there if you’re interested in longer-term investments. If you’re willing to wait longer for returns but also want some safety nets built into your investment strategy, consider buying single-family homes or apartment buildings in areas where prices are rising quickly (such as Seattle).

This type of investment will typically take longer than short-term deals like selling houses but they’ll make sure that your profits will grow steadily over time instead of disappearing overnight as the last bubble did.

Take on freelance work

Freelance work is the easiest way to make six figures without quitting your job, and it’s also a great way to earn extra income on the side.

Freelancing can be done from anywhere in the world, so you’ll be able to work from home and spend more time with your family while earning an impressive income.

To get started as a freelancer, all you need is some experience and a good work ethic. The rest will come naturally once you’ve got those two…
