Make Money Online

I know, I've been there’re sick of all those pages that tell you junk like:

  • Pay off your debt, put away 50 bucks a paycheck, and max out your 401K, so in 20+ years you can be kinda ok (assuming you live that long)
  • Use EBay and sell your junk to get some quick cash
  • Join the latest Internet craze and you can get in on the ground floor
  • Scams like: Click on links and earn $1000 or more per month
  • Scams like: Invest $100.00 in the stock market and be a millionaire in a month

If you're like me and you're sick of all the "advice", then you’re at the right place because I’m going to teach you how to actually make money online and become one of “the wandering rich”.

The Typical Get Rich Slow and Die Techniques

I know you’ve seen these sites.

These pages that talk about scraping together 20 bucks out of every paycheck to pay off your bad debt.

Get Rich Slow Retire OldNext, you’re supposed to somehow "pay yourself first" and get another 20 bucks to stick into savings ...assuming that water heater will not conk out on you next month of course.

You’re supposed to further decrease your "disposable income" by investing as much as possible into your company’s 401K, PPP, or whatever.

Finally, as you make progress, you should max out your Roth IRA or Cash ISA every year.

That way, eventually, in 20 – 40 years, you’ll be able to retire and die.  But hey, maybe your kids will appreciate it!

Now, I’m in no way saying that strategy doesn’t work.  It does, without a doubt.

But if you’re like most people, disposable cash is that stuff that comes on a roll, and that you regularly flush down the toilet.

If that’s what you want, then you can just close this page now or click back on your browser, but do come back to comment 20 years from now and let me know how you’re doing.

But I don’t think that’s what you want, otherwise you wouldn’t be here right now reading these words!

The "Get Some Quick Cash on EBay" Technique

You’ve probably seen it before, if not I can almost guarantee that you will come across something like it before long.

These techniques that "cost very little", and are "easy" are pervasive throughout the web.

EBay Bid Auction ButtonYou just go to your closet and find all the junk you don’t want.  Next you list it on EBay and sell it to people that are obviously going to climb all over themselves to buy your junk.

Oh, and then when you run out of junk, you need to go find more junk.

But you can see what's coming next ...that's right, the "up-sell".

Now that you've run out of your junk, they inevitably have a solution for you to find more junk ...THEM!

So, now what you need to do is take that cash you earned selling your junk, and “invest” in their program’s up-sell so that you can sell THEIR junk!

See? Easy!

Again, these types of strategies can work.  But I'll tell you this little fact ...they aren’t easy, the "devil’s in the details", and very rarely do you get that much for your junk.

Get in on the Ground Floor of the Next Big Internet Craze – Bitcoin Anyone?

Now, these are legitimate opportunities.

If you can get in early enough! There are a lot of people that have made a lot of money very quickly with this strategy, relatively speaking, without spending much cash.

BitcoinOne big problem is…being able to predict the future.

For every big hit, there’s 1000 flops.  If you do get lucky then, awesome!  But it’s kind of like "investing" in the lottery.

Another problem is that you have to have enough money to actually "buy in" to the opportunity. While, a few hundred, a few thousand, or a few tens of thousands of dollars isn't that much for some, for others it's a pretty big deal!

The biggest problem is:  By the time you become aware of it, it’s likely too late.

I can practically guarantee you that if you are reading about "the next big thing" on the Internet, then it’s probably too late.

Not always, and you should always keep an eye and ear open, but generally speaking in 99% of the cases, the time has simply passed.

Don’t Get Taken by a SCAM!

Oh my, the scams!

There are SO MANY!  In fact, there are so many that I write about them from time to time.  Primarily because I want to keep people like you informed and aware of them so you CAN avoid them.

Scam AlertSome of these scams like, "just click on links and you can earn $1,000 a month!"

Really?  Because I’m pretty sure that if this was truly legitimate, and that’s all it took, everyone would be doing it.

Hell, with that method, if it were true, you could hire 20 people paying them $30 a day and retire tomorrow!

As far as the myriad stock market scams that are out there, I'll get into those in detail later.

Just understand this: Any country's stock market is a complicated thing, there are no sure fire tricks, no formulas or methods that work like magic. Getting into them without knowing how the marketplace works is a recipe for disaster.

The message is simply this: Just don't play with online companies that tell you they have "a method". Don't walk away, RUN!

How do I Make Real Money Online?

That is what I promised to tell you isn’t it?  I also said "fast".

But fast is a relative term.  What do you mean by fast?

Do you mean a year?  Two years?  A week?

Make Money OnlineIf you were thinking a week, you might need to re-evaluate your expectations.

I’m not saying it can’t be done, it has been done, and it will be again.

However, that’s NOT the norm. You need to get used to the fact that nobody, despite what they tell you, ever gets anything for doing nothing.

So, I'm not going to insult your intelligence and tell you it’s going to be as easy as picking out a pair of pants.

To make money online, real money, money that lasts, it takes time and work.

What I am going to tell you is that you can learn how. I'm serious! Above I indicated that it takes work. I didn't say HARD work, I said work.

What I do is not hard, but it does consume time, and it can be really confusing to the newbie. That's why you've been struggling as long as you have have no structure frame of reference on which to draw.

The cool thing about it is that you can change your paradigm. The time you spend today, CAN keep working for you potentially forever.  Now that’s something you can’t say about most things.

I mean, if you put in 8 hours at your job today, then you hopefully get paid for 8 hours.

Those 8 hours you put in today are not going to count toward tomorrow, or a week from tomorrow, or a year from tomorrow.

But if you put in 2 hours by building your ONLINE business today, that same 2 hours is going to keep working for you tomorrow, next month, and next year ...forever.

What Do I Need to be Successful?

You need a strategy.

You need the right tools and some structure.

Successful Online BusinessAnd most importantly you need the knowledge of not only what to do, but how to do it and when to do it.

Making money online is about having a way to get your message out, kind of like what I’m doing right now.

You need to figure out what makes sense, and what doesn’t make sense.

What you need is a step-by-step process to guide you through exactly what you have to do to build your empire, no matter how humble or massive you want that empire to be.

Step by step, that’s what you need, and that’s what I’m telling you that you can have.

Another thing that you need is a community of people that have similar goals to you, people that can support you and that eventually, you can support in return as you gain experience.

People that don’t judge you for your ignorance, people that have common interests, people that want you to succeed as they succeed themselves.

Here’s the best part, you can have it for FREE!

I don’t mean free as in: you give out your credit card, forget to cancel, and then you get charged forever.

I mean; you provide no credit card or other payment information. Then you take the time and see if what I’m telling you is true! You know, kick the tires, so to speak. Then, and only then, you get to make an informed decision to decide if you want to jump in with both feet to get the full set of tools that you will need to take you to the next level ...or not.

That’s right! You get to actually get your hands on the tools, the education, and even the community. You get to check it out before you ever decide if you want to spend a penny.

How’s that for confidence?

Conclusion – How to Make Money Online with Your Own Internet Business

There’s something to be said about the lifestyle of the wandering rich.

If you are tired of looking for ways to make a decent living, and working for someone else to make them wealthier, then you need to break the cycle!

Investing in the stock market and building out IRA's and ISA's are great ways to diversify, assuming you aren’t already living paycheck to paycheck.

Buying real-estate and investing in businesses (that you don’t run yourself) are great too, if you already have the money.

Let’s face it, most people just don’t have those kinds of opportunities, but you don’t have to be one of those people in the future.

You can take action today without spending a penny, change your future, and start your journey to become someone that:

  • never has to punch a clock
  • answer to a dipstick boss
  • compete against some pandering little dork
  • or even sit in an office day after grueling day

    Hi James,

    Thanks for this great article. I have been trying out some "shiny object" online opportunities myself without any success. This article lines out the do's and don'ts very well. Ill look into your recommendation right away. Again thank you!

    1. James

      Hi Thomas,

      You are very welcome! I'm glad you enjoyed the article and are planning on taking action.

      "Shiny objects" are something I still struggle with every day. It's so easy to get bogged down by the minutiae of everything from which plugin to use on your CMS, to formatting concerns on text, and everything in between.

      What matters most is taking action, just like you are intending to do!

      Thanks for stopping by, and I hope to see you again real soon so you can comment some more!

    Hi James,

    Thanks for an honest and upfront article. Too many times people are getting scammed online because they "buy into" the notion that you can get rich over night ... and we all know it takes years to make money over night!

    Anything that is FREE to get started is worth a look 🙂

    1. James

      Ha! How true, it DOES take years to make money overnight! The online scams are practically a "right of passage" for many unfortunates that are often in dire straits for ...whatever the reasons.

      I tend to see these scammers as the scavengers of the Internet, just waiting to swoop down and take a chunk out of someone's wallet, that is already likely thinner than is healthy.

      With more and more people from all over the world, literally living "paycheck to paycheck", or those that are almost imprisoned in an area where wages will always be low's more important than ever that people find legitimate ways to beat the system, by knowing the system!

      Anyone can promise the sun, the moon and the stars. I'm promising that if you work hard, put in the time, it's possible to make money without doing evil.

      It's the 21st century, time for a 21st century income that you can take anywhere!

      Thanks for commenting Gaylene!

    Hi James,

    I definitely fall into the get rich slow and die category but it's not something I want for myself and my family. This year I have decided to start an online business so your article is timely. I have been searching for legitimate ways to earn income online and not fall into scams, will explore your site for more.

    1. James

      Many do fall into that category. One of the reasons so many do is because we don't teach our children how to make money.

      I mean, we teach them to cook, clean, ride a bike, and drive a car. But too many get out of high school and don't even know how to balance a check book, or write a resume.

      Of course, writing a resume is something they tend to learn how to do pretty quick, otherwise they starve! But that's the path of least resistance.

      What we should be doing is making wealth a topic in schools, it should be added to the basic three (reading, writing, arithmetic, and wealth)!

      I'm not saying everyone would be rich as Donald Trump, but maybe they'd make better choices, learn to think in revenue streams and not how to waste 8 hours every day making someone else rich ...and just maybe true altruism would be more common.

      Please do take a look around, there's plenty to keep you busy and there's always more around the corner.

      Thanks for commenting, and come back soon!
