If you have some cash in hand, not sure how to turn it into extra income, perhaps you can try investing in gold. Gold price is getting higher now. If you have the patient in investing, you can try your luck in gold management. Buy it when the price is drop, of course it will not drop so much. Study the statistic about the gold trend first, I am sure you able to know when is the best time to buy gold coins or others.
In fact I ever think of using my fixed deposit money to invest into gold. But my hubby not allows me to do so. He commented that I am not a person who can accept failure especially when money is involved. So he still suggests me to stay tune to fixed deposit and earn and fix income. :(
