    "The GTA world revolves around money. From buying new clothes, pimping out your ride, and buying weapons. The best way to get easy money is through heists. Unfortunately, heists aren't always successful nor available, so jobs are the way to go. Luckily jobs are always available 24/7. Sure, not that much payout than other methods, but it's a surefire way to get rich real quick if you're willing to grind"

    "I've tried using GTA online: import/export. I never really got hooked on it or made a ton more money in GTA. My friends would come over and we'd try it for a few hours but ended up just killing each other (in the game, duh)"
