There are no real ways of making money in the world of Albion but various methods are available to attempt if you are short of extra gold.
Taking up a job when they become available from time to time will help and the amount received increases as you become more proficient (better) at it. Selling certain items you no longer need to merchants and stalls will earn back some of your gold.
Buying properties then renting them out to others allows tenants to move in and pay you rent every couple of minutes. Purchasing properties and redecorating it with new furniture increases the value of the house and will sell for a much higher price.
The Gold/Hints and Tips page in the Fable Wiki provides further help and information into other methods and more on those I have previously mentioned.
The only problem with money in Fable II is how to get rid of it.Once you buy property to generate income you can use the game console clock "exploit" or the henchman sell your stuff "exploit" to amass money to excess.Donate to the Temple of light is the best.
