We all know its "Hard Times" when we talk about financial income. Stocks are down, high recession, and continuing rise of prices. With all these, each one of us are striving hard to work extra and find ways in earning additional profit. In these days, rat race is very rampant. Do you find yourself having enough time to generate income to meet your needs? How do you manage it? For me, it seems 24hours is not enough for holding a day job, earning online and spending time with your family. It seems that time is our best competitor in making it big.

I am lucky in this respect. although it is still not enough. But I can use the internet while I am here at work (like now) and I can generate online income and earn from my full-time job at the same time. If I wasn't able to do this... I dpn't know where I would find the time. I am working her 6 nights a week and only have 1 day off to call my own.. so it would be a hard task to manage. but I make my pay and an extra $60-$80 a month. Soon to be much more ... with the help of a couple of sites I invested in. I am grateful that I can use this computer at work. and I am her 10 hours a night most nights and spend all that time on the computer... so you would need and extra 40 hours added on tho the week to accomplish anything.. lol

you are right. But family comes first. I am a stay at home mom. So I finish all these online stuff in the mornings, including my regular chores, cooking etc., so that I can spend time with my kids and husband in the evening.

You are so right about that! I find it hard to have enough hours in the day to try and be online to make money! There are so many competing demands on our time: chores, family, friends, trying to get a little time to spare to make an extra buck or two. I earn most of my money online by writing and it takes time for me to craft and edit an article. There are a lot more writing sites that I would like to find time to explore and post to, but just not enough hours in the day. Adding to my problems is the fact that I have dial up, which slows the process down. I stay on late at night, but then it's not good to sacrifice sleep either. I am not sure what the solution is...are you?

I try to manage my time and whenever I get some free time start posting the replies on mylot. It's really too hard to earn decent amount from the paid websites so had to join different pay websites to make our time worth.

You know what, since I started working online for money, I have less time to watch tv shows and movies! I love downloading in the background while I'm posting reviews online, but I never find time to watch my shows. By the time I'm tired from earning, I'll be too sleepy or bleary-eyed to watch my downloads. I haven't read an ebook in a while as well.

Well money is hard in these days. Its hard to earn big amount of money. But i manage my time in earning extra money. I earn almost $100 in five hours. I have a blog and many making figures to i will maximize the time i have. Mylot is one in that figures. I post 500-1000 post in my other account. This account i'm using is from my Girlfriend. I'm helping her because he don't have time in mylot. We both earn and give time to each other since we are students and business partners

there is never enough time to get everything done, especially with a toddler in the house. I have to chase him all around and keep him out of stuff , right now I am lucky and he is watching a Wiggles video!!! Yippeee. if it was not for Wiggles I would not ever get anything done, not even use the bathroom.

I have a lot of trouble with this. i am trying to come up with a good plan to get us out of debt, finally. We've been trying for months, and it doesn't feel like we've made any progress. So I think that for the next couple of weeks, I'm really going to push it and see what I can do. With the credit cards, what's killing us is the interest, but if I can make a big payment this month - we made a big payment last month - then I can get the interest to go down too. So I figure that I will work really hard at it for two weeks, and try to do things that are residual, too, so that little bits of money keep coming in. That way, I can make money later without it taking money.

I am new to internet earnings. I have been scamed a few times and really disappointed. I got to the point to think that this was not possible. I am a stay at home mom and I really wanted to earn money to spend it in those extra things we might want. My husband is hard working 10hrs a day and drives over an hour to go and come back to his job. So he is literaly out 13 hrs a day 6 days a week. we barely have time to spend together, for he gets home tired, and just wants to take a shower and go to sleep.24hrs a day are not enough for him, Or me as a matter of fact because we lack of his participance everywhere.

I am always online before going to sleep at night and I am working at day time and taking night course, so it's true that 24 hours a day is not enough for me either... so I cannot spend much time to earn online anymore and hardly earn anything now a days.

Yes, time is our best competetior.I have started to plan that atleast 25% of my earnings should come from additional home based on line income..Iam from India and iam new to this concept..Currently iam spending an average of 4 hrs to earn an additional income $4 a day. Time management is very important and we are left with no other alternative except to sacrifice some quality time we spend with our family to hit the mark..

Agreed. I'm due with our first baby any day now and I work from home while he works 3-12pm. Me being home does give us a bit more time together than a lot of people but it's still hard and we both have to work to just keep a roof over our heads! I'd love having a few more hours to work to cover us instead of working and ignoring things due to the need. I'm even more concerned when I go back to school this spring as new baby/job/school/relationship seems like a juggling act I'm not sure I'm capable of doing well.
