To access this challenge, start of the main menu, load your game, instead of selecting "Join the Family" select Corleono Challenges instead, select Freelance, select Money and Respect, and finally select Earn Money.

During this challenge, you will be given 20 minutes to get as much money as possible. To get the achievement, you must get at least $75,000. Being near level 50 is going to greatly increase your odds of survival.

Robbing banks, particularly those in Midtown, is the fastest way to earn money. Those 2 banks in Midtown net you a total of $70K there. The bank in Little Italy nets $4K, which leaves you with $1K left to get. At this point you could blow up some safes or take down enemies to get you the money. If you do rob the banks, make sure and bribe the cops.

Also note that this achievement sometimes glitches in the players favor. If you start with over $100k in pocket sometimes you'll get the achievement no matter how much you make during the challenge.

Personally, I managed $75,515 at about 10 min remaining and then let time run out on my first try.
