If you're trying to make money, ask yourself one question: Am I cheating, scamming, or stealing?  

If the answer to this question is No, you're most likely spinning your wheels.  

The easiest way to make money is to make lots of empty promises, lie, steal, claim that whatever you're doing will change their lives and/or the world.  Of course you should try to not break any laws!  If people start demanding results find a scapegoat and move to another country.

Some big league examples:

-If you're a politician make lots of grandiose campaign promises you have no intention of keeping.  

-If you're in the religion business, claim that they'll go to hell if they don't give you money.

-If you're in the medical field, claim that a marginally effective and expensive treatment could save lives.

-If you're a banker, claim that you can totes fix the economy by printing off another trillion dollars and bailing out a few more banks



Another simpler Example:

This joke of an idea raised over 2 million USD even though it's completely unfeasible.

Legit

The tech industry in particular is filled with these shysters. 

Another example is Elon Musk.  

Lots of people are nuthugging this guy but all he does is every few months he peddles some impractical and unprofitable idea and the muppet public just eats it up.  The guy's businesses would be bankrupt already if not for government subsidies.

Another example: Thomas Edison

Most of the time he just took credit for the work of his underlings.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Edison_patents

Tesla was digging ditches for $2/day while Edison took credit for his work.   :popcorn: 




Tesla was offered the task of completely redesigning the Edison Company's direct current generators. In 1885, he said that he could redesign Edison's inefficient motor and generators, making an improvement in both service and economy. According to Tesla, Edison remarked, "There's fifty thousand dollars in it for you—if you can do it."[54] [55]

After months of work, Tesla fulfilled the task and inquired about payment. Edison, saying that he was only joking, replied, "Tesla, you don't understand our 
American humor."
[55]
 
[57]
Instead, Edison offered a US$10-a-week raise over Tesla's US$18 per week salary; Tesla refused the offer and immediately resigned.
[24]

............

The investors showed little interest in Tesla's ideas for new types of motors and electrical transmission equipment. They were more interested in developing an electrical utility than inventing new systems.They eventually forced Tesla out, leaving him penniless. He even lost control of the patents he had generated, since he had assigned them to the company in lieu of stock.[60] He had to work at various electrical repair jobs and as a ditch digger for $2 per day. Later in life Tesla would recount the winter of 1886/1887 as a time of hardship.

This "technology" startup received 120 million dollars of funding from venture capitalists.  All it does is press a bag of juice that you can do with your hands.

Making money is all about scamming people.  If you don't realize this you're well behind the curve.

[font=lucida_granderegular, Verdana, sans-serif][size=small][font=lucida_granderegular, Verdana, sans-serif]You’ve got to be kidding me.[/font] So the company knew the machine squeezes juice from its packets as effectively as two human hands, but in order to sell this monstrosity for $400 a pop (originally $700), they had to market it as some technological breakthrough. Is that what’s happening here?

[font=lucida_granderegular, Verdana, sans-serif][size=small][font=lucida_granderegular, Verdana, sans-serif]Finally, and perhaps most concerning, look at a couple of the entities that helped fund Juciero to the tune of $120 million: Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers and Alphabet Inc. (the parent company of Google). [/font]These are large, sophisticated players and they bought into this thing. From what I can tell, they were mesmerized by the fact the machine looked like and iPhone, connects to the internet, and was headquartered in San Francisco. Either that, or they knew the whole thing was a marketing scheme designed to trick morons into spending an enormous sum of money for the right to buy expensive juice packets that could probably be emptied just fine using a $20 machine.

[font=lucida_granderegular, Verdana, sans-serif]Neither of the above conclusions is comforting. [size=small][font=lucida_granderegular, Verdana, sans-serif]Either high-profile VCs were tricked by this ridiculous product, or they willingly went along with a what appears to be a sleazy scheme. [/font][/font][/size]


Even Ivanka Trump promoted Juicero:
