6 Ways for Gen Z To Get Rich in 2023 – Yahoo Finance


Gen Z may be young, but they’re not taking time for granted. This generation is working hard to avoid some of the financial pitfalls that their elders faced, such as student loan debt. But they’re not having an easy go of it. The pandemic landed at a crucial time for many — when they were in college or just entering the workforce — and now inflation is outpacing wage growth and a global recession weighs heavy on the horizon.

It’s critical that Gen Zers start making serious money ASAP to steer clear of a life of debt and all the anguish that brings. Here’s a look at what Gen Zers can do to get rich in 2023.
“In order to make money from copywriting, all you need to do to get started is to take a copywriting course, which you can find on Udemy,” said LeeNor Dikel, ACC, a business coach, social media marketer and author. “From there, build your portfolio by offering free services to two to three clients.
“You can find these clients on Facebook groups for entrepreneurs by posting something explaining that you are offering free services in exchange for testimonials. Once you have that, set up a profile on Upwork, Fiverr, and create an Instagram account for your copywriting business. If you post valuable information consistently and reach out to potential clients daily, you can easily make $5K to $10K per month.”
“In order to make money doing this, you also need to build up your portfolio,” Dikel said. “You can do this by working with brands for free, receiving a gifted product and creating great content. You can also work with a UGC agency to find consistent paying clients.
“To be an influencer, you also need to have a portfolio with great content but you need more followers. A nano influencer has less than 10K followers and can make around $100 per post. Micro influencers, 10K-50K, can make around $100 to $500 per post. And about 50K followers can make $1,000 and above per post. Make sure you’re engaging with your audience in order to keep your engagement rate high.”

“A good way to make some fast cash in today’s market [is] investing in real estate,” said Jake Hill, CEO of DebtHammer. “Gen Z individuals who have been able to secure loans and purchase homes, then market those residences through third parties such as Airbnb or Vrbo have seen a huge influx in cash. This can be a brilliant enterprise for people looking to dip their toe in the real estate market.
“I advise people to read books, take classes, and educate themselves on the risks before diving into any purchases, but if possible, they will see their wealth increase throughout the year.”
“Gen Zs know the ins and outs of the virtual world, and they can use this as a tool to earn money fast,” said Adam Garcia, the CEO and owner of The Stock Dork. “They can sell clothes, books, electronic gadgets, and other items by setting up an eCommerce store while taking training courses to enhance their knowledge in sales.
“To start, Gen Zs must look for a trusted online channel where they can present the product they wish to sell,” Garcia said. “Platforms like eBay, Amazon, and Shopify can offer them a space to grow their audience and check their progress. A newly established eCommerce store can make a gross monthly revenue of over $50,000 for the first few months and potentially double the earnings after a year of successful operation.”
“I kid you not, this is a program Amazon released that enables you to get paid for reviewing stuff you buy,” said Travis Stephenson, CEO and founder of Wealthery. “You don’t even have to buy it on Amazon; it just has to be available for sale on Amazon. You use simple iPhone videos, upload them to the influencer program dashboard, and they populate them on Amazon for you.
“If someone watches one of these videos and buys something, you get a commission. Probably the most simple way to start making money because you don’t need a big following, any video making skills, you don’t have to be on camera, and you don’t have to really understand ‘business’ to make that work.”
“Saving a million dollars is almost impossible for the average money maker, so if you want to get rich in 2023, you’ll need to invest,” said Kimberly Hamilton, certified financial education instructor and author of “Building Wealth on a Dime.” “One easy way Gen Z can do that, even if they don’t have a standard 9-to-5 [job], is to set up an individual retirement account (IRA) and invest their tax refund.
“For example, a $500 tax refund invested, followed by as little as $25 per month has the potential to turn into $14,223 over the course of 20 years — a profit of over $7,000 on a $6,500 total contribution. While that amount might not make you rich, the habit of investing as early and often as you can certainly has the potential to do so.
“Above the age of 18, Gen Zers can invest using a Traditional or Roth IRA, depending on their preference. Below the age of 18, they can set up a custodial account with the help of their parents.”

The big market headline this year – all year – has been the steady fall in stocks. The S&P 500 is down 20% for 2022, and the NASDAQ has fallen a disastrous 33%. And while recent data shows that there may be some hope on the inflation front, there may still be storm clouds massing for next year’s stock market. That’s the view of Mike Wilson, Morgan Stanley's chief equity strategist. He’s been a leading voice among the bears this year, and he’s not changing that tune as we head into the New Year.
Most everyone loves an early holiday present. And for some real estate investment trust (REIT) investors, that early gift came in the form of a dividend increase over the past two weeks. Of course, a dividend increase is great because it puts more income into the pockets of investors and increases the yield on their purchase price, but more importantly, a dividend increase also signals to the markets that the company expects to perform well, perhaps generating increases in revenue and funds from
