AIBU to think you can't 'easily make 2k in 2 weeks' (lighthearted)

Just to be clear - this is in NO WAY a poor me begging thread, this is about a friend.

Was chatting yesterday about what would be like to win the lottery and how we'd spend it, then Friend says she's doing alright for herself at the moment because alongside her part time job she's making 2k every 2 weeks from her own 'projects'. She assured me these are legal things, but then went all coy about what she's actually doing, only saying it takes little time, and little investment.

Am I right to be afraid that she's going to try and recruit me for one of these MLM schemes?! It seems like the kind of bollocks the deluded bots would claim. Building up the excitement by being coy then selling it as The Dream.

Because for the life of me I can't think of any way you could easily make 2k in 2 weeks alongside another job, with little time and investment. And if friend HAS found this mythical beast, AIBU to be sulky she's not sharing this precious Holy Grail info? grin Some friend. Huff.

Is she an escort or webcam girl?

PastaSauceHoarder Sun 18-Feb-18 21:46:04

Uh-oh, sounds like MLM to me!

NSEA Sun 18-Feb-18 21:46:07

You’re wrong. I know a really easy way to make 2k without mlm schemes

whyhastherumgone Sun 18-Feb-18 21:46:39

Forgive my naivety - would that be classed as legal @strawberrysparkle?
In the meantime, I'll be over here, in my sheltered existence grin

It could be a new MLM recruiting strategy, or she could be doing matched betting. I'd give that a go if I had the faintest chance of understanding how it worked.

Impossible to do in a non dodgy way

I bring home a little more than the every two weeks, but that's just my salary, not an extra project.

BarbaraofSevillle Sun 18-Feb-18 21:47:31

You could do it if you were a high stakes gambler or were playing the stock market, but you'd have to have a lot of money at risk to make that sort of profit and be lucky too. Not reliable at all.

My husband made 2k gross before all deductions in 2 weeks but it was a one off, however even after all deductions and taxes it was a nice bonus for something he loved to do.

whyhastherumgone Sun 18-Feb-18 21:48:11

forgot about matched betting. I've fancied it before but cannot get my head around it, sigh. Not for me, that one.

@NEA I stand corrected. But only if you elaborate grin. Promise not to steal the idea and do it myself, honest.

I thought of selling things maybe but doesn't seem sustainable.

whyhastherumgone Sun 18-Feb-18 21:48:52

Sorry, should have clarified - I meant as not part of a salary, this is on top of her part-time job and not overtime with work or anything.

pasturesgreen Sun 18-Feb-18 21:49:12

Escorting services do spring to mind...

strawberrysparkle Sun 18-Feb-18 21:49:42

Pretty sure both are legal as long as you don't sleep with them!

whyhastherumgone Sun 18-Feb-18 21:51:53

@strawberrysparkle well well well, you do learn something every day!

Hotdoggity Sun 18-Feb-18 21:52:14

I can make two grand a night, but it’s hit and miss. My output has to be good.

64BooLane Sun 18-Feb-18 21:54:26

Two grand a night?!

I’m really in the wrong job.

whyhastherumgone Sun 18-Feb-18 21:55:41

@hotdiggity seriously?! Mind = boggled.
Sigh, me too @64boolane me too.

Hotdoggity Sun 18-Feb-18 22:03:08

Yeah, but I might get it wrong like, 8/10 times and if I do, I don’t get anything. So not quite as ludicrous. And yeah, I give it a week before you get the Facebook message from your friend!

64BooLane Sun 18-Feb-18 22:04:12

Please do update us if the message does come, op!

OutyMcOutface Sun 18-Feb-18 22:07:02

This is not unusual for my husband but he has a PhD and is a qualified solicitor so itall comes from legal work or writing specialist reports for consultancy firms-could your friendbe doingsonething like that?

RebootYourEngine Sun 18-Feb-18 22:10:02

Two grand a night confused i am in the wrong job too. What do you do Hotdoggity

Hotdoggity Sun 18-Feb-18 22:14:38

It’s a bit outing. I write stuff. Short books... And like I say, sometimes it crap and doesn’t sell.

PinkAvocado Sun 18-Feb-18 22:16:45

Matched betting could definitely be the answer.

Easily achievable webcam modelling (I know from experience)
