Hi everyone, I have been having some trouble lately. I am a full time student and a part time worker looking for side gigs so I can save money when I go to veterinary school (which can put me in over $250,000 in debt). I don’t know anything about stocks or trading or side gigs at all, and I’m looking into affiliate marketing and drop shipping but I don’t even know if these are viable incomes to start with. I don’t have a lot of time to do anything not online on the side since I’m traveling to and from work and school all week long. Can someone give me some good advice? Something you would do if you were in my shoes?
I really appreciate it my Reddit family!

Trading stocks is gambling. Might as well go bet on horses or sports or crypto.
Investing in the stock market will *not* give you immediate returns if you do it with sound fundamentals — i.e. invest in low-fee index funds that track the broader market — only invest money you won’t need for the longterm. Like retirement.
There are no get rich schemes/free lunch, or easy way to find $250k worth of schooling.
Pretty much what you stated isn’t going to work 99.9 percent of the time. I wouldn’t go to school unless I could pay cash and not take out loans. Find a different way without borrowing. Or find a different career path. Or find a job like mine where the employer will pay for veterinarian school if you were able to fit it into your work schedule.
