Definitely, myLot only provides me an extra income. I don't think I'll be able to make a living out of responding and posting discussions. I want to be rich but not very rich. I just want my family to eat at least three times a day with a meal that we consider delicious and healthy. I also want some luxuries for them once in a while.

It is a bit confusing. Rich but not very rich. LOL! What I am trying to say is that I want to have enough money for my family to eat at least three times a day and to have some luxuries for quite some time. I don't want to be rich like the actors in Hollywood or Bill Gates.

I am working online to make extra money. There is no way I could just depend on the money that I make online. I am trying to post 50 replies on mylot and work each day doing a full time job as well.

Well I am online because I want to be home with my children and I want to make a difference for them and create a legacy so they will not have to work for other people in an unsatisfying job. I want to be financially wealthy, for I am already rich. Making money online is just one of the avenues that I want to make money in.

you are right about that. there are some great people out there that are so willing to give of their time and knowledge. so when i found something that i know is going to help others, i make it my business to put it out there. that is what i love about having my website. i get questions from members all the time, and i do what ever i can to help

Right now I'm just trying to earn a little bit of extra money. I'm actually saving for a rowing machine because I quit smoking 8 months ago, and the weight piled on. Now I want to shift that lol. I think getting rich online CAN happen, but I also think it takes a heck of a lot of work and effort. Of course, it'd never happen doing things like Mylot, and I think the only way to make any real money would be to have an online business or service. For now, I'll stick to making just a little extra money. I'm making around $100 a month and that suits me fine.

At the moment, I don't realistically expect to generate a full-time income only, only some supplementary income that can be used for vacations, going out, etc. However, I plan on retiring in the next few years, and it'd be great if I could build up enough income to supplement my pension and Social Security check.

you could make a full time income if you really put your mind to it. all those pennies start to add up to dollars and you would be so suprised

I am online trying to make money to help and support my family. I used to work outside of the home but we have got our bills caught up to where I can stay home but I still need to earn a little online also. I am mainly looking to be comfortable but I would like to be able to earn extra money also. I don't think I will ever get rich because most sites take alot of referrals and that is not easy for me at all. I always make a goal to make enough online each month to help pay the bills and have some extra left for things we want or need. Getting rich online is very hard to do but I hope you reach your goal.

getting rich is hard to do when you say it's hard to do. if you want something you have to go after it, no matter what

Right now, I'm supplimenting my income with online earning activities because my current job isn't paying what I need to stay out of debt. I work from home as a freelance writer already, so I don't think of that aspect of this venture. I do want to see better income, though, until I get my business back up to where it once was. So, until that happens, I'll be using programs such as these.

at least you have a plan, a goal something that is going to take you where you need and want to be. just keep doing what you are doing and look for new ways of doing the same thing. you will be suprised. also find other people who are making money and let them teach you. that is what i do, i teach others to do what i do. it is rewarding for me, and they make money while i too make money

At the moment I am doing it as a challenge to myself. I have other priorities and other ways of making money, but I want to do this as well to see if it can be done. That's all for now, but ultimately if it is possible then I will want to make more as an income.

The money that I earn online goes into a special account. It is a savings account that I do not touch. I just keep adding to it with the money I earn online. I am saving that money towards my old age. Which isn't too far away LOL!! I am self employed, so I have no 401K or pension of any type to help me when I am older. So I am trying to make what I can online to help when that time comes.

Perhaps it can make little money online if you are not full-time computer operater,but it lost plenty of time,and it bad to health before screen sitting.So,it is "make extra money ".

Good topic. I am trying to succeed online for various reasons. One is so that I can quit my job and be a full-time stay-at-home dad with my family and work from there! Also, to supplement my income for now, not to get rich, but so that we can afford to travel and pay gas prices!!! My blog has many ways - http://www.findcash.blogspot.com

I want a hugh amount of money to make my son's dream come true to become a commercial pilot and if every myLot Member contributes $2 each I will be able to do it. This is not the right way of doing but I dont think it is a bad idea, same way we can help each other with a proper myLot administration and transparent accountability I dont think the members will mind. In the meantime we will work for myLot. what do you say.
