Do you ever think of earning online as your full time job?

Well we are now on mylot, we chat to each other and get a little earning. and you know there maybe other ways of online earning that can also make money. i just wonder if someone just quit from his current job and try to make money only with online earning, is it possible that earning can support his life and his family? for example, to make all together around USD1000 per month or just USD500 each month, do you think it is possible? or do you ever have such an idea or even plan to do so? or you have already been doing like that? and how do you do for this? thanks for sharing your idea.

When I first start to search the possibility of earning online, i was fascinated by so many earning programs. I did not yet quit my day job but I hope one of these days, I will work full time from home with my own online business. Would you be willing to partner with me if ever?

I haven't really thought about this as a full time job, I would only ever consider doing that if I could make a minimum of a few thousand dollars a month. I would probably earn completely online if I ended up getting $8000+ each month. I think that it is possible to earn a figure such as that, but it would be very very extremely rare to find a person doing so... I guess if you had a large majority of referrals under your name on a popular site such as MyLot or bux.to, then it is possible...

I am not afraid to admit that this thought did occur to me. However, I am rational enough to keep my job instead of opting to go into the so many lucrative atrractions. I am thankful to make earning online as a hobby.

$1000 and more is what I earn each month working online. I making better than working at a regular job-J-just-O-over-B-broke. My laptop & my cell is my office. When I do travel I have my office with me.

Can you be kind enough & tell us how you make $1000 a month doing online work. It will be of great help. I have never made more than $250 a month on online. The earnings were not consistent For that I had to invest $200. I was doing the most paying work online job..... Currency Trading. The risk here is completely loosing your deposit. One has to learn it over a year or more. Try to rope in as much as free resources as possible. There are too many out there. All Brokers offer mock trading in real time & situation. But its nothing near a real one where you really invest. But its a good beginning. Its worth a try. Nice place to loose $200 rather than investing it in a scam.

When I began to earn money online, this became something I wanted to do as a full time job of mind. I currently do not work and do not want to. I want to stay home and earn thousands a month from the internet.

Hi there jc00771! I haven't really thought about making this my full time job. I think I will be missing alot from life in the real world if I do. I have been having a hard time earning enough, I'm not contented with my earnings and I only got contented when I stay in front of the PC for eight hours straight. I'm still a newbie with earning money online but maybe if I can get a disgustingly big amount of money through this, without taking up half of my whole day, then I might give it a try. It's really cool for a sideline though.

I haven't really thought about it either, but I mean it all depends. i am not sure, if I could push myself to sit by the computer all day long and actually really work. I am sure, that might have a lot of advantages, but I think I was too long at home alone and I need to just get ut of the house and meet some people. So for that i would really like to go back to the job( i don't work right now-for better understanding). But you know it will be good to be able to earn some good money at least like a part time job.

I hope it can! Why not? If the earning is better than my full time job, i might wanna quit, then i have more flexible time. But currently i am doing my freelance job as well. Hopefully, one day with my freelance n online earning programs, i can earn more than my full time job!

I have been working on a number of online earning jobs. I do earn, but still none that can earn enough from to leave my fulltime job. I will share the program with all on MyLot if and when I find something really good enough.

If it was that easy to make that much money working at home, no one would have an "outside" job. That alone tells you "there's a catch".

It is if you are int he right place at the right time, and have the right thing to sell that people are looking for and if you have the money to invest to get started and if you dont' plan o making a salary every month for the first couple years and if people still want your product in a few years and i fyou have the internet knowledge to do it all right the first time and know the right people at the right time and they will work with your when you need it and how you need it regardless of themselves. Best thing I can see is those scammers that say to buy their ebook or whatever and it will tell you how to make millions over night - they are as you and millions others are buying their ebook - that says "have a product that people want to buy". They got your money so they did make money while they slept!

I would love to be able to make that kind of money online each month and be able to make this a full time job and quit my other one. I like to work online and can see that I would be able to devote several hours a day to that type of work. However, I don't know that it is possible to make that kind of money.

Sure, I would, and since where I live the cost of living isn't so high, I could do it on a lot less than someone from the US, Europe or Japan, but even aiming for a kind of low goal, it is very difficult to reah.

If I found that I could make it online without leaving home I would definately choose to do so, at least there would be no bosses looking over my shoulder

Sure that would be great, but with earnings similar to mylot it wouldn't be realistic. So for now I'm just considering it as part-time income. Maybe after an early retirement it would be a good idea to concentrate on online income.

i have always searched for possible part time or full time job online as long as i will be staying home since i have 3 kids already. I came across home based call center jobs, will explore this next month as soon as i have the resources...

I dont think that earning from internet alone is sufficient. I have tried various sites paying online but have got very little. on mylot also i have got 0.54$ for 54 posts so i think that earning even 10$ is a challenge leave aside earning 500$ per month. If you know any other site that mays more money let me know

I believe it is very possible to make a living off the internet. People are already doing it. If you look, most of those people all own their own online businesses. They aren't working for others, others are working for them. How to get there is another matter. I also believe that you should never put your family, or yourself, in financial jeopardy. If you have a job, keep it and do your online business when you have the time. That way you don't take a risk losing money. I don't have my own online business yet. I'm still working for others on the internet. Someday I may start my own business, if I could ever figure out what I like to do!

Though I've seen some screen shots of people really earning through the net, I personally have not thought of relying on earning solely from it. I am a firm believer of diversification. That is to say, I always do things as if I am multitasking. As such, I also treat earning my living in the same way. So right now, my earnings come from me practicing my profession, me teaching it and me making a business out of it. This earning from the net is quite new to me, but I am slowly increasing my productivity. Even so, I still plan to do all of them at the same time because I get a natural high when I see my earnings go up from different areas of my work. Besides, earning while just chatting away? I don't even feel like I'm doing work, so I regard it as just fun. :)
