Hi Myloters, I know a lot of online earners rely on the net for there living expenses but is it because online earning gives better income? I been in an online program and I would say I cant rely on my online earnings to cover my expenses because its very small amount. I think working in a real job with interaction to people is better because it helps your mind being active and aware of what is happening around you. What about you what do you think of online earning program? Would you rather have job in an office etc or on the participate in this online earning program?

Thanks Donna, yeah will I guess its better to do this than just set around watch TV after work. I think for some people who make this as a hobby after whole day work its great.

Will in some way it is my recreation for me too most of the time because I notice that going out most of the time with friends can put a hole in your wallet specially the friends that know nothing about earning money just spending. When you hang out with this kind of people you cant say you will not spend money otherwise you will look like he assistant so I am still thankful there is online earning program to fill up my time.

I agree with you beatriz, it also doesn't do any good to our brain. I notice that since I been so active online my ability to engage in discussion with my friends is not that good enough and I am starting to get slow on my answer. You also learn very little online as what you see online is not all true. Computer doesn't argue you as well which for brain it is important thing to keep your brain active.

Well, I think that everyone should have a real life out there and engage real people. Some persons do make good money online, and I know a few, but I would not replace that with a real job. There are pros and cons in this subject. At least online if you have an angry customer you donĀ“t have to see their face!

I know several people that are supplementing their income online, and a couple that earn all of their income online. Those that earn all of their income from what they do online are very good at what they do. Some are professional writers/bloggers, while others are involved with affiliate programs that they own or participate in. Each individual is very, very good at what they do. They understand the ins and outs of internet marketing and work hard at what they do. I've been there, done that with jobs in the office...you work for someone else and if you aren't making them a lot more money than they are paying you, you'll find yourself out of a job. Working online, you are working for you...make enough to pay the bills, put food on the table and you are doing pretty well. Start making a lot of money, from the comfort of your own home...then, in my opinion, your doing great...and you get to keep all the profits (well after taxes, of course ) I'm trying...not making enough $$ to even consider leaving my job, but if I find something that eventually is paying all my bills...it would be quite tempting to leave, maybe

Your right creation about working for somebody can be a lot of pain. I actually try to get an employment after I found out this online earning program year ago and I only last for couple of months. I quite after couple of months and since then just been doing online programs but the bad thing for me in this is my internet bill is way higher than what I earn but I still keep going because this is what make my day instead of being in front of the TV all day.

eve301345 - Well I have to say it depends what kind of job. Well working online your only getting paid by commission and working with people its per hour which its better. The only difference between those two is that you can spend more time at home and the other one is you spend more time at work then at home which you have to make time for the family. I really can't choose yet because I've been trying to get a good job by working at home but most of them you have to pay a fee which that sucks. This site you win money but its not enough and you have to be on it like everyday and so many hours just to make a lot of money. No doubt about it I do love typing and writing but its really hard to be on it all the time especially when you have other things to do or other sites to win stuff.

I think I'd rather have an outside job. Just because I like interacting with people, etc. I do need some online earnings though, to pay for small things.

It depends on the earnings. If you are good at making online earnings then its great since you do not need to go to work and just earn money online at the comfort of your home. You get to choose what time you wish to earn. But earning online takes effort and knowledge as well as time. In a real job, you get to interact with people and you are secured with your pay. So I think when it comes to security of tenure, real job is better.

I think it will be better if you'll get real job rather than online job. Some of these sites today just pop up and before you know it it'll be gone all of the sudden. Though im not saying having online job is bad and stuff but it'll be better if you prioritize a real job, then after it will be online job/business.

In my view, online earning programs could be regarded as an additional way of earning if you have much spare time. I don't think it's a good for a person rely mainly on online earning programs even if he or she could earn enough money through them. A real job not only means money, but also means an opportunity to communicate with others and involve yourself in the real society. The latter function is more important.

There are many kinds of online earning programs. We can separate them into two groups. The first group are those that mimic real jobs offline. The appear like employment, but in reality they are not. They are commission basis jobs online where results depend on your efforts. You write your own paycheck. They are mostly free lancer jobs. There's no contract of hiring and no fixed salaries just like what you get in real offline jobs. The second of group of online income opportunities are businesses. Most business opportunities online are sales related opportunities. The most popular of these are affiliate programs where you earn commission for every sales you generate. If you want to earn big income from this second type of online earning program, you must not depend solely on your efforts. It is advisable to join programs that are two-tiers or multi-tiers where you can build your own sales just like a sales manager of Toyota or some insurance companies. With this, you can earn leverage income, therefore exposing you to an opportunity to earn unlimited income. This give you advantage over working solely by yourself. You will be working as a team also. I prefer this type of online income program, because this is not a job, this is already a business. If you go for online job, remember that job is an acronym for "just over broke". You will never get ahead with a "j.o.b.". You need to change your mindset from mindset of an employment to mindset of a businessman. Big money online is in business, not in employment. With job, income is small. Your earn in parallel on how much you can do. With job, work stop income stop. With business, work stop income continue. Online sales business can give you residual income, work stop income continue. Even if you stop selling, if the customer continue buying through your link, you continue earning income. You see the difference?

hi eve. if done properly, online earning can augment the income from a real job but i doubt if it can be better or even equal that of a real job. i've known people though who solely rely on their online earnings and they manage to earn a lot more than what others earn with a real job. i think online earning is not for everyone. i don't rely on my online earnings and do this for the fun of it plus also to learn from it. if given the chance i want to be part of an online earning program such as mylot (of which i'm part of already but i'm still looking for other similar ones) and still have a real job. cheers!!!

Hello eve301345 this is checkmail and me too would have prefered to work in real life than online, but recently got some payouts.So now am thinking of going online for the monthly income source.Yeah but me too think that the real job is an better than the online work in means of interaction, experiences all real.But if we are knowing the proper source to earn enough income on monthly basis and also have some health pro than we may better opt for online earnings.Anyways Happy Mylotting.

I think its good to have both but if you're constantly online and don't interact offline your brain will fry!

yes that's ture and many online earners can earn much more than their real job and the online earnings can buy them house. cars and other luxury products.but most of those online earners still struggle to earn more to meet the isp cost and the electric bills. i'm trying to earn more through my sites also.

Hi Eve, I would have wanted to work online full time, imagine the benefits or staying at home and being with your family day in and day out and still be able to support yourself and your family financially. However, I haven't come across an online job that pays really good money to be considered as a substitute for a real job. Until I find it, I would have to stick it out with my present job.

No, it is not possible for me. My online earning is quite little bit and it is not possible for me to survive by this little income. It is only a little bit extra earning for me. I love China

If I were to choose which of the two is better, then I wouldn't hesitate to say that a real job is really better than merely relying on online earnings. Yes, there are many ways to earn good amount of money online, especially if you are good at it, but working for a real job is different. When you work outside, you can say that you are really employed. Aside from that, online earnings tend to have the possibility to be temporary.

NO..Online earnings will never replace the regular jobs and the earnings that we are making from the online sites are not regulare and not sure.The online sites may go scam at any time without paying us. We can not depend the sites to run our life. Even if we spend lot of hours with the online sites, it is very hard to earn more than 75 dollars in a months.With this amount, we can just pay the electricity and internet bill.

A real job would be better, I think, as you know you will get paid and not scammed. The problem of it is, any business can go out and then you are our of a job, and on the internet you can get scammed badly. I haven't worked for years, so I really don't know that much about it anymore. Now that I am making a little money online, I like it as I am my own boss, and I can work the hours I want to work, whether a little or a lot. I am happy I am making money online, even though it isnt' a lot, but it all adds up in the end. Working online can be better though in another sense as you don't have to answer to anyone else, and I like that. Good luck to you and happy mylotting.
