$1,000 can only get you so far if you invest in stocks.

But if you invest in your skills?

You can create an opportunity for exponential returns by increasing your income.

Here are some low barrier to entry skills you can learn to earn an income anywhere in the world.


Think content creation, emails, and websites.

People will pay you $1,000s of dollars to write engaging, compelling, and sales driven content to grow their business.


Businesses are always looking for people who can close deals on Zoom calls and at a high rate.

Learn sales and you can be successful at anything you want in life.

A great skill to help businesses, entrepreneurs, and creators build a website to funnel their social media traffic to.

If youโ€™re a new investor you can invest $1,000 little by little so you can get used to the ups and downs of the market.

This can be $100 every 2 weeks, $100/month, or whatever interval you want.

If youโ€™re braver, you can go โ€œall inโ€ via lump sum and get everything invested at once.

Crowdfunding sites let you invest in real estate with as little as $500.

You can buy REITS with as little as $1.

If you want exposure to real estate without having to deal with actual property, this is a perfect way to do it.

When you have savings, you can pay for emergencies and stay out of high interest debt.

If you donโ€™t have 3-6 months of savings yet, this is your opportunity to build that foundation.

Then you can start looking for higher returns on your money.

If you have credit card debt at 18%+, paying it down will net you a guaranteed 18% return.

The stock market has averaged around 10% over its history.

You can double that by getting rid of high interest debt.

An employer match means your 401k contributions will be doubled up to a certain amount.

This is the easiest way to 2x your money.

If your employer matches 6% of your salary, you should invest 6%.

Then 12% of your salary gets invested for half the price.

If you have no credit history, getting a secured credit card can help you build credit.

Good credit leads to favorable interest rates on your:

โ€ข Mortgage

โ€ข Auto loans

โ€ข Student loans

Which means money is cheaper to borrow.
