    Basically as the title says. I've read so many eBooks and tried every method free no investment and always fail. So I'm willing to invest 5 dollars! But, what do I invest it on to double my 5 dollars to 10 dollars? I always fail so please don't lead me in the wrong direction where I will lose 5 dollars thanks!

    $5 is low man. You may want to educate yourself with programming or stuff that you can offer in exchange for money. Maybe you can use that $5 to enroll yourself to a site that teaches you to do programming

    Maybe you can outsource services from fiverr or something.

    Not a bad idea actually if you know how to sell it. (selling other people skills)

    You should retire or deposit in bank and live off the interest.

    Well then try harder and smarter! Educate yourself and believe me it will pay off! Right now, I'm familiarizing myself with programming and if you want I can help you out. Point you out on a site where you can learn a thing or two. It could help you up start financially soon enough and who knows, you don't need to pay for a programming to do your programming job because you know how to do it yourself.

    OK, here is one way to begin something out of your 5 big dollars! >>

    There is a member on BHW who is giving away free hosting (I think it is free for 6 months). So take it, and before that buy a discounted domain (sometimes you can even get a .com domain for less than $1). Now use both and install free Wordpress on it. Create a blog or any other site and make it work for you. What kind of website will produce some income for you is for you to decide.

    There are other hosts who offer free web hosting and without advertisement,s but it also comes with some limited services, for example, you won't get instant support/help from them. But otherwise for free hosting, they offer a lot of good features for people like you (and me too :)) who have money constraints but need a hosting urgently.

    If you wish to go the above-mentioned way, then our BHW forums are filled with useful knowledge and methods which you can select and turn your new site into a great one. It will take some time, but anyway $5 will at least give you something to begin with.

    Remember, for getting any such online success, you need targeted traffic to your site. So begin learning how to achieve that flow to your site. Content is a big factor in achieving any success, so... :)

    Another way... if you know of some local manufacturer who produces good low-cost product then you can sell those products on eBay. I began by finding a good manufacturer, and took images of the products he made, then I used eBay to advertise those products for a good profit margin. Luckily I got many customers, and I bought the required items then (i.e., after I got orders), and sold them to these customers. There was very little investment involved and my money didn't get tied up for long durations because I purchased only the required items which were already in stock at the manufacturer and the purchased stock was immediately delivered to my customers. So you can try on these lines too.

    If you require more investment, then monitory help from any friend or relatives can be availed for your needs as an individual seller, or even a bank can provide you with the investment if you open some kind of company which doesn't cost much investment to open on paper at least. Google-search for the information, or visit the nearest bank and request the information.

    Thirdly, focus on what you want to do without thinking of the small amount you have on hand, rather than worry about what you can do with $5 only. You may even get an idea and can begin something huge without spending even one single cent! Widen your horizons infinitely and in all direction, and don't let them shrink to the size of a money bill you have in your pocket. Ultimately, it's always the quality and not the quantity especially if it means a small/tiny size, that counts in the world around you!

    You could always get a job. Save up some money, start some projects on the side, then quit the job and just focus on your projects.

    So you have $5 and you want to double it to $10 as quick as possible?.

    First thing you want to do is fold up that $5 bill and place it in your pocket because there's not much that money can do. You may want to use that for food if you only have $5.

    Sell your skill. Go to elance freelancer fiverr upwork and work on building income. When you only have $5 to invest that's a sign that you do not have enough income coming in. Get a job to build income or sell your service but you should focus only on building income and not investing.

    Buy a pack of cigarettes and sell them each for a dollar and repeat the process until you have a hundred dollars.

    When you have a hundred dollars buy a giant bag of oranges because oranges are awesome.

    OK, that solves a huge problem if you've sufficient gold on hand! Lol. Now if you wish to begin earning through a site, then begin thinking of a niche, then read everything about it, and see if you can find methods which you can improve on. Then when you're ready think of the name of your site... etc. Get organized beginning NOW! :)

    Don't just limit yourself to a site though. there are plenty of ways to earn... direct selling on eBay, becoming an affiliate of good products, using the blogspot: e.g. to take advantage of trends :) and so on.

    Get organized and just don' wait for the ideas to come to you whenever they would come. I think you have got sufficient ideas now so side by side begin searching more on those lines/ideas. GL!
