I am a stay at home mom of 2 children and the taught of going back to work and sending them to daycare full time is not possible right now. I have been trying my utmost best to give them all the attention for the first two year. My question is Is it possible to survive with just an internet job? I have been searching tireless for an internet job that's honest, reliable, no limitations because, of my location. I have not been scammed yet but, are there really good internet jobs out there that you can make a living from or what ? Need suggestion if possible ?

I really don't think you can. You will want to be home with your kids , so you don't want to spend your time online when you should be taking care of your kids. You definitely can make some extra cash online. If your kids have a certain nap time, maybe you can get a job with liveops~ which is a customer service job from your home. The only thing is your house has to be quiet, so it would have to be when kids are sleeping. Good luck to you.

Please be leary of AWSurveys. I was with them and got all the way up to $73. They were sending me one survey a month for $1 each. Once I hit the $73 mark, they canceled my account. Never responded to any of my emails asking why. They are a HUGE SCAM, don't waist your time.

Not sure where you are but there is a company that hires work at home customer service reps in the states. teletech dot com is the address. they operate 24/7 and have part time and full time jobs. The pay is only about 10 per hour but at least you can work at home and do that part time and do some other online sites until you get your online career rolling. Good luck to you!

If you are into writing, try article or review writing websites like helium, associated content or sharedreviews. there are a lot of money making offers online but beware of the scams

Yes, you can make a few dollars a day if you work hard at these sites. If you know how to write with keywords then you can make more.

In my opinion you can take up internet home business as a full time job after working hard for a few months. There is no short cut to internet business success. You need to work very hard, You need to work smart, You need to work with perseverance, You need to believe it will work. Good luck.

Yes, I believe you can. With the legit site that's right for your skills and with hardwork, you will be able to survive doing online jobs. But I suggest you learn basic computer and programming skills so that you can more higher paying online jobs.

Hey, not too fast darling! You're not supposed to post referral links in discussions. Every MyLotter should treat MyLot as a special place to mingle with other people and not just a trash site where we can post referral links. MyLot is better than that.

I found a great work-at-home job doing legal transcription from an internet business. They hired only people to work from home. My income was unlimited because I got to pick the hours I worked, anywhere from 1 hour a month up to 8 hours a day, seven days a week. The pay was not bad, either! It took me awhile to find this job but, after searching every day, I finally stumbled onto this great job. They ARE out there. You just need to be patient and keep searching. The biggest internet job that I've seen is for medical transcriptionists. You usually need to be certified in medical transcription for those jobs but, if you can afford it, you can get certified by taking an online course. In this country, there is a site called 2work-from-home.com. That's where I found this job. Keep searching because you're bound to find something that you can do sooner or later. Perseverance pays off! Good luck to you!

No, online sites won't support your family. Think of it this way, online jobs allows you to stay home, work anytime you want, it sounds like an easy job, right? But, there is no free lunch out there, and companies know that alot of people like this kindof job, so they pay very very little for your time. For example, you get 1/10 of a penny for posting on a discussion page like this one. I read somewhere on another discussion page, that to make a dollar or more, this user was posting around 400 resonses! 400, my god, for all that time, I think I can work at McDonald's or some place and get paid more. So, in summary, it's probably safest to work at a real job where you are working there in person, and physically present, because no one will pay people for doing nothing. These sites, like MyLot area best if you have an interest, and for fun, not to relied on feed your kids.

Mostly there will be scam sites. That attract you to pay a good income but in the end we would know that we are scammed. You can find good sites that pay you good amounts for your work discussing here with all my lot friends. Be sure before you start any work that you got complete information about the site's paying status. Or else it'll be waste of money and time. You need to work hard and you will be paid. There are paying honest sites and web masters are also there you can see. I am also a beginner and can't give you much information you need, but I know that we can get good jobs in internet that we can work at home.

i dont know, i would have to say that i am really skeptical about making any huge amount on the internet. i mean, i have made fair money from writing and selling things on ebay but both those have been hit and miss.

I don't know, I have done online earning program for 1 year but I only got less than $10 in my paypal account, all of them are come from PTS sites. Most of online earning sites are scams except mylot but I haven't reached the first payment here, maybe you will do better coz I am not a native English speaker and I am not an active member. The main reason is that I have a day job, I only treat mylot as a part time job or recreation. I think you should look for a day job, it's will be better for your finance.

I think it depends on your life style and how much you earned in your internet job. As a newbie I am happy to earned $100-$200. a month. It is a real online job and not a business opportunity online. I am done of those project I am also looking for opportunity now and expecting to get another project that will give me more earnings. But definitely it's not the same with my full time job earnings before. But I don't have choice so at least I can still make money at home by doing part time jobs online. And my husband is also working full time my earnings is just an extra. I heard a lot of people and looking their profiles they got so many job assignment and they earning well online. Wishing you the best! Happy mylotting!

I also have been looking for online work but I have not found anything that pays you enough to actually profit with it... I have heard that if you participate in different surveys and also on here that you can make good money but I haven't gotten there either. Hope that you find something soon....

Hello tamsuder610! Unless you have a high paying internet job, then yes, you can survive. Or, if you have several online job that offers a handsome compensation. Otherwise, you will have to compensate it with other income generating opportunities. Many people rely on the internet to earn extra income to help them survive. But then again, that's just for extra income for the family. Couple it with a regular job to help you out financially.

Hey, Well to tell you the truth, yes their are. But they require more work than a normal job, trust me. I have known one person who started out last year, with no technical knowledge or anything, now he earns $250 daily, but he almost had sleepless nights, it is NOT easy!! Make sure you have a good day, God bless and Happy Lotting!!

I'm not really quite sure on that. So far I've made no where near enough money to survive with off the internet but it can be helpful if you were to get a normal job with it or something. Maybe with enough searching and working at it you could make enough though. All I can say is keep at it and you should hopefully get paid.

I've been looking for a real, legit, work from home internet job, and I can't even FIND one, so I'd probably say that no, you can't survivie with just an internet job. Unless you're really, really lucky.

I can't say anything right now. Because I have been too searching for a fine internet job but I didn't find any. I have consulted man of my friends but that doesn't help me. Personally, I can't survive with just an internet job which brings just few bucks in home. Because at last money matters for maintaining all that we have. Thanks!
