Being an actor or Porn Star is a good way to make money, but then you will end up being too famous. Instead, choose a high paying normal job like a Doctor, Banker or Brain Surgeon.
If your character has high intelligence from birth, then this will be your best chance to land a high-paying job. Ribbons are handed out when you complete a full life in Billie.
The ribbon is visible over your gravestone once you've completed a life, and you can always check which ones you've earned in the main menu under cemetery. The key to get some of these Ribbons in Billie is that you need to make sure not to excel or do too much in other parts of your life.
You'll want your Citizen to croak as quickly as possible so you don't accidentally gain another Ribbon. Study hard when you enter, go to college, keep studying each year, graduate from college and go to graduate school, then go for a job at a school whether it's a teacher or an assistant principal.
You will also want to make sure to keep your health relatively low so you can die pretty quickly after you've got your addictions. Continue with this process until your later years and die normally to obtain the ribbon.
Graduate from High School and major in something that is business related in University (Mathematics, Finance, Information Systems, etc). Work hard every year to get promotions, and you should eventually become CEO.
Focus on adopting as many cats as you can and make sure to take care of them by spending time with them and all the other options. Largely ignore all of your other responsibilities and only spend time with your feline friends.
This one is a lot easier if you're a Citizen (costs $4.99 USD), because you can adopt from the Cat Breeder instead of the Animal Shelter. To obtain the cunning ribbon, you will want to commit a crime and get sent to prison.
Once you've done that, you can (optionally) emigrate to a new country to make it harder for you to be caught again. This one is somewhat similar to the cunning ribbon, but you have to commit multiple murders (at least five) in your lifetime.
Start early by getting a part-time job and gifting people small stuff to begin with. I would go one gift per family member in the early stage of your life.
Get a pretty good job, so you can buy bigger gifts. Once you graduate from High School, you should probably head to University to get a better paying gig.
I would also buy a few houses over the years that are in good shape and gift those as well. After you've gotten at least a few cars and a couple houses under your belt, you should be able to cruise to completing this ribbon.
You need to marry people with a lot of money, wait for them to croak, and then inherit the spoils. You can't ever have a job, so to make a bit of side money, do some Freelance Gigs, which will get you enough cash to use the Dating App.
I would recommend the casino, because Blackjack is relatively simple to play and win. The racetrack is pure luck, but at cards you can at least somewhat influence the outcome.
Bet big stacks at the tables, and attempt to rack up over one million dollars in winnings. Once you do, cease making money so you don't accidentally get the Rich ribbon (five million).
Try to avoid sitting in jail for too long or you could end up with the Jailbird ribbon. This one just requires that you spend a lot of time on social media.
Sign up for all the account, and then post to them multiple times each year. You can buy followers in the early stages, but you do risk getting suspended briefly.
The jailbird ribbon is for players who stay the majority of their life in prison and then die there. Once you've done this, you can just go back to prison for the final time and just keep aging up until you perish.
You'll need to be very successful, so studying up and working hard in school is the easiest path for this. Another job that earns a lot of money is being an actor, so do that and work on your social media presence to gain a higher salary.
Make sure this is your focus, head to the nightclubs and engage in as many one-night stands as possible. You'll also want to make sure not to go to the club over 10 or so times because you could end up with the Rowdy ribbon.
You might just end up running into this one while playing normally, it's not too hard to live a mediocre life in this game. Never drink or do any drugs, and make sure to heave a good relationship with each and every family member.
You can become something like a Lawyer or a Doctor, make money, buy houses, hold onto them for five or so years, and then sell them for a profit. You can also become an Exorcist, then buy haunted houses, get rid of the ghosts, and sell them for a pretty good profit.
Either way, you want to just buy and sell houses a lot until your character dies. I have found at about five years of owning a house will get you a pretty good amount of additional money, so that's when you can sell.
Once you've watched above 20, you can go to the Witch Doctor a bunch to kill your character! This is pretty easy to achieve if you study hard academically, go to college, and then head to a high paying career.
Make sure you go to the club at least 10 times, you can also throw house parties to argue with your neighbors. Just don't spend too much time there, but keep being aggressive throughout your life and you should achieve this badge.
You will need to be a male, have under a million net worth without debts, purchase over 20 exotic pets throughout your life. You do not have access to the Exotic Pet Dealer if you don't pay for Citizenship.
To obtain the teammate ribbon, you'll need to become an app developer with Billie. When you create your Citizen, make sure you start them in the United States and in Miami.
You'll need to hit the books, study hard, and head to the library in your early years. Go to college and select Computer Science as your major, and once you graduate you should be able to take up a job as an app developer.
You can even get fired from the job, but as long as you held it at some point, you should get the ribbon ! You can also now be born in Tucson and become an App Developer, Tester, or Mogul to receive this one.
To get the Thief ribbon you will need to pickpocket at least one person, steal a car, and burgle at least one house! You will want your amount of thefts to be over 10 and to try and make the majority of your money by thievery.
This one is pretty much random chance, sometimes your character will just die early in life. To get the Veteran ribbon, you will need to go into the military as an enlistee or officer, which requires you to go to University.
The wasteful ribbon is extremely easy to get, all you need to do is start a game and before you do anything head to activities and then surrender. You'll want to largely avoid any one-night stands, and just focus on the threesomes.
