I started make money online like most of you here with ptc and ptr. Soon I get hooked on to it. At the time I was so unhappy with work, I quit my job stay and work on line. For sure I know that earnings at ptc and ptr or even post at mylot here will not be enough to support myself. I have no kids, but I have a mortgage to pay and myslf to feed. I then move to investments online, I loose some, I gain some. However,I always make enough money to pay my bills and put food on the table. And, about 6 month ago I move to internet marketing. It take time and diligent work to see the result. Now I am happy of where I am. I still do a little ptc and a few investment, but as much as be fore. My time now spending on promoting my business. I still work 16 hrs a day. But I am much happier than I was before at work. That's my story

Well i m pretty sure the lifestile in California allows you to make money selling Greensmoke and other things :) That would never work out for me sadly.

But that is where the internet come. You can send traffic to the site . Maybe some one will buy. Your customers can be anywhere in the world

That's a really great story and I am so happy to hear that you are happy! Sometimes it doesnt really matter that much how much money we earn (as along as we can pay the bills!) but our inner happiness is the most important thing.

You are absolutely right. It does not matter much how much you make, as long as you have a roof over your head and foods on the table. It may be a tent, but nevertheless a roof. Looking back I am glad that I made the move.

Hi Maria_k, first, congrats on the big decision to put the full swing working online from home, what a great success. If you don't mind me asking, what kind of business are you promoting? It's okay if you don't want to share or if you don't want to share it here, you can PM me and we'll chat. Cheers, Cest_moi

Wow, that is a pretty impressive story! It sounds like you really know what you're doing with the online earning. I definitely don't make enough money online to be able to live off of it, but I am starting to find some new ways to increase my online earnings. I would love to be able to work from home on the internet as my main source of income, but I still am not able to yet. It sounds like I need to be taking advice from you! Congratulations on your success!

You don't have to quit your job and be like me. Looking for ways to increase your earning is a right step to take. I am lucky that I am not married. Imagine if you are married and tell your spouse: " honey I quit my job, I want to work on line" what will your spouse say to you? I don't have answer that question. So, in away I think being single is a blessing from God.

Well way to go because being happy about what you are doing is very important. I am becoming financially stable enough to venture out and do something risky like this.

What I learn from the journey is if you don't go out of your confort zone you'll never know what lay ahead for you. In a way I am glad that I quit that job, even tho I made good salary. I was not happy there and I don't think that energy support me. Good luck and much sucess to you!

First I sell what I find and earn $2.00 in my childhood.... When I go to college.I once together started an undertaking with my roommate. We sold the sushi.We bought material to blend flavors oneslfe packing ,and give ous shop for the eigh sushi shop.We to decive the sushi after the vistor completes the sushi dilivers goods to the doorstep... Because our class more and more time are getting fewer and fewer..we don't have the too much time to manage our business...Therefor we had ended our eigh sushi shop . T.T~~~` As for me this is a very good experience and recalls,although we have not made money...^^
