    Basically my buddy got released from work and he is getting sued by his company. I won't go into details about this.

    He has some very unique skills and he is willing to work 12-16 hours a day so he asked me for an advice on what to do in order to start making money ASAP.
    He needs to start earning money in the next 10 days and he is targeting 30$ a day so he can pay his bills while the case is ongoing.

    He is good with SEO, he can do some programming, he can read and work with information extremely fast, he can write articles as well. I am a little bit far away from this things and I can
    only give him advice on a longer term ideas.

    So I am asking you, can someone help in this situation, we certainly don't need to be spoon fed we just need realistic ideas and we will figure something out. I am just afraid the duration is too low and
    I can not help him with money right now so we have to work it out faster.

    Best regards

    Why he dont make an account at odesk, freelancer, pph, etc? I think this would be a quick solution.

    From what I have seen it will take time for him to make a name for himself. He is looking for a method that he can change a little bit and use. He is in a kind of shock right now and I will be trying to help him as well. I used to do a lot of Black Hat stuff in the previous years, but right now I am more focused on my youtube channel and my real life work.

    Regards,

    freelancing is prob the quickest way to make money.

    he can prob do numerous things... but wont get paid right away.

    if you find a freelance gig... and finish... he can make money faster.

    You can just hope to find something that makes you money from day one. Pretty much everything takes time and effort.

    So when you have experience with youtube, why you dont teach him how to do?
    But when he is shocked at the moment, go out with him, have a few beers and try to motivate him. What happened to him, happen every day million times. Sometimes the end of one thing can be the beginning of another bigger thing.

    It takes way too much time to make a successful youtube channel. It took me over 16 months and he is looking for some small quick money.

    If you or him had a bit of "that stuff"(maybe the so called 'intelligence') you could just browse the internet and understand by yourself how to make money. If someone can't do so without any outside help, imho can't also make of IM/marketing their life, you've just chase a route too hard for you, or that may just make some money in the short run.

    What he said ^^

    It's a bit rough but that's right. IM requires a lot of research and you can't bypass that step. Once he start understanding what het got his feet into, he will be able to understand the market he wants to conquer and find solution, sell his services.

    Having a target is great, but undertstanding what he wants to do is better. If he needs direction, then he's not made for IM, but rather made to have a boss that gives him work to do.

    I'm currently in the research phase also. Yesterday i spent around 12 hours researching on this site and again a similar amount today. I intend to put in similar hours for the next two weeks. This is WHILE working a full time work (although not much work is being achieved)
    I have found many projects that i'd like to get involved in, but i refuse to try anything until I have absorbed plenty of knowledge. I think researching this stuff is so important. We're basically turning making money into a hobby. I think he'd do well to start his journey on researching here. No short cuts.
