Unfortunately, making money without working is pretty much a pipe dream. Money is what we use in trade for goods or services delivered, and there really is no way to create value for people without putting a little work into it. Even if you have a large inheritance and plan to invest, that takes work...either you have to spend time discussing options with a financial planner, or you have to spend the time researching the market and finding good, solid investments. Making money through working at home on the internet or by other means often takes a lot more work than a traditional "9-5," and is only worth it if you have a real reason for wanting to make it work. In a traditional job there's no such thing as unbillable time for the employees, there are guaranteed hours of work and stability and all you sacrifice is upside potential...those of us who work for ourselves have upside potential, but it takes even more work to find any kind of stability within that work. In other words, there simply is no such thing as "something for nothing," except for some people who try to scam the government with spurious disability cases or collect welfare even when they're still capable of working. In these cases, other people have to work to make up the lack whether they can afford it or not.
