How about "she only thinks about winning money?" I know that ganhar can mean "win", but I don't know if that would be the correct translation in this case? Now I get it as wrong...

Or "earning money" since it is supposed to be through working...

And if it is a woman with a gambling addiction, going to the casino every day. Wouldn't that be "ela só pensa em ganhar dinheiro"?

For me it seems reasonable enough to be accepted!

"She only thinks of earning money" works too, no?
