    I've just been chatting about Zoella who at 25 has managed to become extremely wealthy from chatting about make-up.

    There was also a girl the other day that claimed to have made 14k just from entering competitions online... the possibilities seem endless these days!

    What's the most creative way you or someone you know has made money?

    15 year old Pakistani boy helped his team win over a million dollars in a DOTA2 competition.

    Wasn't even a loan. Take that Donald Trump.

    picking have done it since i was about 9
    i started on the local factories bins as there was a kitchen place, a windows and doors place, a bathroom fitter and the aqualisa shower production plant so you could pull a lot of brass and stainless steel out along with copper, lead and aluminium and well the best i had before moving on to better things was the last run at £100 back when i was 14 and whilst i got conned would have been about £600 if an adult had been selling it £100 was still at the time the most money i'd ever held in cash
    then i went on to hunting sales for silver and gold items (earrings, chains and coins were common and cheap and the better silverware was a surprise but it did happen) before moving online and handling larger quantities usually ounces now

    Matched betting can be quite lucrative if you can put time and effort into it. My mate used to earn an extra £1-2k a month from it.

    Property development is also a creative way to make quite big money but again you need to have time, effort and also some money to invest in the first instance.

    even with putting in virtually no time and effort you can make a few hundred a month with no problems at all!
