9 Ways to Get Rich Quicker

Here at Kiplinger, we generally champion the art of getting rich slowly. “Don’t go for the home run,” Knight Kiplinger tells us in his classic column 8 Keys to Financial Security. “In investing, as in baseball, those who swing for the fences do hit the occasional home run. But they strike out a lot, too, and their lifetime batting average -- average annual total return -- suffers accordingly.”

But maybe you’re willing to take some calculated risks in pursuit of the freedom that money (and lots of it) can give you to make choices that can bring satisfaction, whether that means buying your dream home, giving generously to charity or escaping the 9-to-5 grind. In that spirit, we focus on nine faster roads to riches, with varying levels of risk. The people we interviewed who have made it big didn’t always get there on the first or second try. But they all share essential qualities for success: passion, persistence and patience.
