So You Want To Make Money Online

in #ctp7 months ago (edited)

Here you are...reading a post about making money online. Based on that fact, I can only assume you want to make money online. With that in mind, I have a question for you.

Is this online money-making endeavor something new you have just started are have you been trying to make money online for a while without success?

If you are just starting out, I have a couple of nuggets you need to latch on to:

a) If someone says they can show you how to make a lot of money quickly with little effort, run the other direction. There are no legal get-rich-quick plans. More than likely, it is a bold face lie in order to get you to invest in their "program" and once you do, you will never hear from them again. There are probably more scams out there than there are legitimate businesses. Do your homework before investing ANY money in an online company.

b) When it comes to making money, there are three main keys...investment, time, and effort. Every opportunity will require at least two of those keys. If you want to make money without any investment, it will require a lot of your time and effort (like having a job). If you want to make money with little effort, it will require an investment and lots of time (like investing in real estate). If you want to make money quickly, it will require investment and effort (like owning/running your own company). This is a fundamental business principle that you cannot get away from. There are no shortcuts. Whichever option you are going to utilize, at least now you know how you can expect to be involved in the process.

c) Most people that go into business for themselves make little to no money. Many actually lose more money that they make. states, "20% of small businesses fail in their first year, 30% of small business fail in their second year, and 50% of small businesses fail after five years in business. Finally, 70% of small business owners fail in their 10th year in business." While these numbers vary slightly by industry, they have not fluctuated much over the last several decades. I don't say this to be a bad omen...just to give you a realistic look at to be aware of.

If you are still reading at this point and are determined to eventually tell your boss to take a hike, take heart. There are ways to make money online. After over 30 years of trying various programs and businesses, I can state that I have made more money online this year during the pandemic than I have in all of my previous years combined. In the coming weeks, I will be going into more details about what I am doing and how you can duplicate my efforts and see the same types of results. I will say that I have not yet reached the point of being able to live off my online earnings, but by reinvesting my profits, I am beginning to build a snowball that is steadily growing. What I am doing is not hard. What I am doing in not risky. What I am doing IS time consuming. Some part of what I am doing will be outside of your comfort zone. You must be willing to do what other people won't do in order to have what other people don't have.

If you are still on board, stay tuned for more information coming soon.


Making money online is the same as you make money offline. Just imagine how much time and effort you put into your day job and then how much you earn as a salary. Maybe somehow, your effort, talent, and time do not reflect on salary. People do not like their job and think you can make money online easily and live their dream life.

When you actually work to make money online, their dreams might turn into nightmares. You have to put a lot of time and effort to see the results. People get hopeless because it is not easy and takes a long time to build something online. Thank you so much @theroad2freedom for sharing your experience.

Exactly right. So often, due to dissatisfaction with their offline job, people are looking for an easy way to rectify their discouragement. They seek a "get rich quick" alternative in order to make a fast transition out of their 9-to-5. Since there are so many "opportunities" out there, it seems like a perfect resolution to their problem. Unfortunately, their desire for a fast answer causes hasty, and not well thought out, decisions that lead to even more heartache.

I am hoping that by reading this post, someone might take a second look at what they are doing before hitting the "submit" button and having to deal with the additional hardship.

Great post. It's true that there is no reciepe for making the quick buck and if people make us believe so, well it's most of the time a quick buck for them :-).

Now more than ever it's difficult to build a business and especially a profitable one online. I've been at it for several years and only now I start to make some small profits. The big advantage of an online business is that the overhead costs can be kept quite low and therefore it may be easier to get into profitability.

I think this is the reason that so many people are looking for online "opportunities" to take advantage of. Since they do not have the initial startup costs that are part of starting a brick and mortar business, people are more likely to take a chance in this arena. That is probably why there are so many scammers out there ready to take advantage of ignorant and unsuspecting opportunity seekers. Ignorance is not a bad thing. The lack of knowledge is ignorance. The lack of willingness to obtain knowledge is stupidity. That is why my warning is...

Do your homework before investing ANY money in an online company.

Thank you for reading and responding to this post. I appreciate the recognition. I hope my words can be informative and encourging to all who read them.

I remember when I first started my online entrepreneur journey, I did a lot of hit & miss things, which didn't work for the long run. As time went on, I realized I need a "WHY" & to discover what my true passion was. This is another crucial component to the journey - having passion for whatever it is you decide to do...

It seems after this, the journey will become a bit more defined, even through the obstacles & all. Because when you have your reason "why", then you can truly go forth & explore the options out there that fit that for you (in your perspective). The cool thing is the options are limitless :)

Great blog post!! It is important for people to read things such as this so they can have a sense of direction & know how to take that first step forward in the new journey that awaits them! :)

Keep up the awesome work & remember, You Are Awesome! 👍🙂💚

Making money online is easier in hard at the same time because takelot of time

It does take a lot of time. Hopefully, people will recongnize this fact before wasting a lot of their hard earned cash chasing after any of the dozens of get-rich-quick scams out there that want to get your hopes up only to take your money. All you have to do is make a plan, work your plan, and be patient and consistant.

Re investing the profit is the great thing that you are doing.

The only way to build true wealth is to compound your efforts by reinvesting what you make until your are earning enough each day that what you take out is more than replaced by what you earn that day. Once you reach that point, you are truly financially free.
