Hello, I would steer clear of any kind of "quick" investment. Safe investing is for the long term. Anything that promises quick returns are likely going to lose your money. I would focus on quick, flexible jobs that you can do from home. Websites like fiverr have small jobs that people will pay money for that can be done remotely from home a lot of times. Also, phone apps like Roadie let you sign up to deliver items for a fee going to places that you will already be traveling. I would explore things like this versus giving anyone money for promises of a quick buck. Lastly, people are always looking for good babysitters, house cleaners, etc. You could also look for odd jobs on Craigslist in your area.
