How To Make $2,000 In a Weekend
Hi...James Altucher here,
Let me tell you something that scares me.
Incomes are getting lower every year...and I don’t see it stopping any time soon.
Since 1993, income for people ages 18-35 has gone from $36,000 to $33,000. This seems like a small amount.
It’s the first time ever that income has gone down over such a long period (more than a year).
This means: relying on college, a job, a promotion, security, stability, retirement pension, retirement income = thing of the past.
It doesn’t exist anymore...
And that’s scary.
But I’m not here to tell you what you should be scared of. I’m only telling you what I see...and what I’m doing about it.
I’m building as many sources of income as I can...
Here’s the thing. The IRS says the average multi-millionaire has seven different sources of income.
When you have one source of income – for instance, a single job – you are falling into a trap. You will be one of the masses instead of one of the people who will survive.
So you constantly have to be on the lookout for the other sources of income.
Don't worry, I'll help you.
I'm doing this for two reasons:
First, because I don’t like when one person can make or break me.
- A boss...
- A publisher...
- A TV producer...
- A buyer of my company...
At any one point I’ve had to kiss ass to all of the above.
I hate it.
I will NEVER do it again.
If you feel the same way, then I want to help you.
And the only way to avoid being crushed financially is to diversify your income sources so no one person can destroy you.
Remember...the average rich person has seven sources of income.
While the average poor person has one source of income.
Middle class people can be broken by a boss, a manager, or the failure of the business they work for.
They can go to sleep at night and wake up without a way to feed their family.
The path from one income to seven or ten sources of income isn’t always easy...
But it’s also not always as hard as you might think.
The problem is: Most of us were trained to think money only comes from getting a job.
They don’t teach you how to build alternate income streams in school.
There isn’t a “passive income 101” in any college catalog.
Creating new income sources is like sex – the only way to get good at it is to do it (a lot).
So what kind of income stream can you start right now, today?
I recommend starting with a passive one.
Because one of my most important rules for being an entrepreneur is: lazy is best.
If you have to work another 40 hours a week in order to make any money, then you might as well have two full-time jobs.
That’s no life.
I’m lazy. I like my money coming in for as little work as possible (preferably as fast as possible)
The truth is: making money doesn’t have to take a lot of your time.
It’s hard for people trained to think a “job = income” to understand that.
You’re supposed to believe if you work hard you’ll make more money.
That you get paid based on how many hours you put in...
That’s a lie.
If you think every income stream has to pay you as much as your job, then you’ll never build seven income streams.
Some of my best income streams started out small… a few hundred dollars here, a few thousands there … but they grew year by year.
The point is: you have to START.
By now you know that in today’s “idea economy” you have to develop your “idea muscle” by coming up with ideas.
Those ideas are what will turn into income for you.
You also have to develop your “income muscle” - and you do that by practicing turning ideas into new income streams.
And having multiple income streams gives you more than just money.
If you can get an income stream started today that only pays you $1,000 or $2,000 THIS YEAR – but takes you almost no time… then do it.
Even an extra $500, if it comes in consistently, is worthwhile.
If you have 20 people paying you $500 a month then you have a $120,000 a year income.
But if one of those people “fires” you then you still have a $114,000 income.
On the other hand, if you have a $120,000 job then if one person fires you then you can’t pay your rent or mortgage, feed your family, or pay for anything else.
I’ve started a lot of businesses, I’ve launched a lot of income streams, some of them worked, a lot of them failed.
But I kept going. Even when it seemed like I couldn’t...
Today, I know I can start new income streams pretty much on demand because I’ve done it so many times. (And because I’ve made so many mistakes.)
I learned by doing.
You probably already know I started a business for $2,000 at my kitchen table and later sold it for $10 million.
Or that I built a company called Reset that I sold for $15 million.
Or that I’ve sold so many self-published books on my own, without using a traditional publisher, that Amazon flew me out to their offices to record a video about how great self-publishing is.
I want you to see what has worked for me in all of those areas.
For example, not long ago I launched a special kind of niche business.
The first year it grossed over $15 million!
And I wrote out a special roadmap on how you can build that same type of business based on your personal experiences.
It’s yours to have if you want it today. Maybe it’s right for you, maybe it’s not.
This business, by the way, can be anything you want it to be…it doesn’t HAVE to be huge.
Don’t feel like you have to do it exactly the way I did.
In fact, I know of people doing it just in their spare time making several hundred dollars a month...
Would $900 extra dollars a month make your life easier?
Either way, I put it all together for you if you want it.
I started reaching out to everyone in my network who ever succeeded – large or small – and started getting them to give me blueprints, maps, tactics, strategies, and ways they personally built their fortunes… launched their side businesses… discovered hidden income.
And I started writing it up in a report.
Mapping out income plans… success secrets… money-making ideas.
I listed out motivational strategies, productivity tips, happiness practices, and every little way successful people each chose themselves.
For example, if you ever need emergency income… emergency as in, if you don’t make $2,000 this weekend then you’re going to get kicked out of your house… then I have you covered.
I get a lot of emails from people who are scared because they are losing their jobs and don’t know what to do.
So I wrote Matt Barrie, the CEO of Freelancer.com the largest freelance job company in the world, and asked, “How can people earn $2,000 in a weekend with only a few months of training?”
He wrote back with a list of 10 skills where freelancers can make $2,000 or more in just a couple of days.
I’ll give you the list. Maybe you’ve already got the skills you need to make $2,000 fast.
If not, most of these ten things are pretty quick and easy to learn...oh, and I’ll even tell you the fastest way to learn any skill you need.
Think of it as your “break glass in case of financial emergency” starter kit.
It’s great to have when you need an extra $1,000 or $2,000 – for bills, for vacation, for Christmas or whatever.
It’s time to get addicted to starting new income streams – let’s get started…
I’m addicted to ideas.
The more ideas I come up with the more I need to come up with ideas… and the easier it is to do. And now I have an income addiction.
I love launching a new source of income – even a small one.
The whole goal of this post is to share that addiction with you...
If you want to have seven or more sources of income, then you just have to get started.
You have to turn this into a habit.
And I’ve done everything I can here to help you.
The final step… the step that will make all this worthwhile… is for you to agree to my terms then get my research.
If you guarantee a one-time $7 up-front payment to me as a return for the time I put into to mapping all this out, then I will hand you a new source of income on a silver platter...
I’ll even give you 30-days to decide whether you like what I share with you. If not just let me know and I’ll give you back the $7.
I’m not always right. I don’t pretend to be.
I can’t guarantee you will make money from my ideas. But I do my best.
Advice is 100% autobiography.
I’m just sharing the things that have worked for me. Maybe they’ll work for you. I hope so.

Frequently Asked Questions
Still sitting on the fence? Here are answers to some of the most commonly asked questions...
I’ll give you three good reasons.
First, this is an experiment for me.
Second, if I was going to take more money, particularly a percentage of profits or something like then I’d be back in the fund world. That’s not what this site is. It’s not what I’m doing right now.
Third, I’ll know that the people who are willing to share even a tiny amount like $7 in exchange for all my work are the ones I should be sending my top ideas too.
It’s ok if people don’t like my ideas enough to invest $7. But this helps me to segment my readers into groups based on what they’re interested in so I can help each group.
Not everyone wants more income.
