Are these the words that people who are blessed to get a decent or high paying job say to us people on a regular basis? For me i dont see whats wrong gettin gan extra dollar in ur pocket. Whats the harm in that? I always get talked about amongst family that im not working , they dont consider sitting on the laptop computer all day work ! but if i can recall dont they have desk jobs that get paid and all they do is sit at the computer ? does any one out there feel my pain ? Whats wrong in getting extra money ? someone express to me please

If you make enough money to pay all of your expenses and maybe have a few dollars left over for yourself, then you have a real job There's no difference between sitting at a laptop doing your work all day or being a janitor, it is all work

Hello Having an extra money is a a good thing. Perhaps just don't remind the people who don't say pleasant words to you. Try to prove to them that they're wrong. In that way they will realize the fact..:)

19 Jun 09 I have been starting early all my friends,relatives and family didn't believe me at all. I'm telling them that I can earn money online although not that big. They still don't believe me and until now even if I'm already earning every month they still doubted me. Oh well...I just sigh...

Nothing wrong for wanting to get extra money so long as one got that through work or legitimate means. Sitting in front of computer can net you extra money sound great to me , Gesusdid, probably some are just jealous of you! hahaha...

I think a "real job" is something standard in this capitalist community. A "real job" is how they'll define a profession - something that will define "what you are". If for example you were to fill up a resume, you'd write something under occupation as Dr or Architect or Programmer or Stock Broker or Nurse or whatever - they can't imagine what people who work online would write under that that's why they can't accept that it's a "real job". But hey, if it pays the bills and it's working out well then a job is a job! Thanks for the response on my discussion!

If you are determined to earn your income online, don't pay attention to what your family says. You know that you are making money, and when you really make it big these will be the same people that will be asking you what you did to do it, and probably want some too. I am in the same position as you are, my family hates me being on the computer, and doesn't believe that I can do something great with the marketing that I do. I just hold my faith that one day it will be very fruitful, and don't pay any attention to what they say.
