I been in online business for about a month now, working this as a full-time job. Only the past few days I was extremely tired and I just completely exhausted myself. I done hours and hours of networking, researching, trying programs, pulling all-nighters, etc as I really want to start earning income to supplement my husband's part-time work and be completely off of the welfare system. My husband, who supports me, is concerned that I'm harming my body. I want this to be enjoyable but I really need to earn money. I can't make it in the real world because of my 3 disabilities, and this is something that I know I'm going to be good at. But right now, the only good thing that's coming out of my online business is the fact that I'm making headway.

May I know what you do online to make money? Where does most of your online income come from? I have been doing this for over a year now but just got seriously middle of last year. Now I'm making $350 a month.

I've only been in it for about a month but I'm positioned in a way that I know what I'mworking with and what my gameplan is. It'll be great to work with you as we can all learn from each other!!! :-)

How can you tell that you are making headway? For me I have been 'looking' for money online for 4 years now and have found a few good sites and lost a few hundred dollars on some bad sites. But I am not giving up. I want to make money to make me more independent. I am a SAHM with 3 kids so my option now to earn is online.

I've been in it for about a month now so I'm not making income yet but it looks like I'm positioned to get started now that I've weeded out the time-wasters and did some research on legitimate sites. Now what I have to do is upkeep my resources blog, create my reviews blog, and continue on with my traffic exchange programs for referrals, and simply continuing to network with other people. I'll add you as a friend and we can talk some more. BTW I have 2 kids and am on disability pension.

Talking about traffic, I stumbled upon hotbliggityblog.com which says that if you donate even a dollar, they would put up your link in their blog. I did just that (I donated a dollar) and now my blog is receiving more traffic. But what i learnt in marketing your products in that you will want to get targeted audience to get people to buy your products. O well I am sending people to what i think they cannot refuse so..

Hi Mashi! Hang in there..do your research and stay focused and you will be fine :) It has taken me years to reach my current online earning level. You sound like you have the drive that I had when I started and still have. Just keep taking it a day at a time. If I can be of any help just let me know. Try to get some rest today :)

The body is more resilient than we sometimes realize. As long as you are not sick are are getting rest and eating well, you can continue working hard. Maybe once you are established you will be able to relax a bit, and look back with pride on your hard work. Good luck to you.

I understand exactly how you feel. I myself am in a similar situation when it comes to the hours of work which result in leaving me physically and mentally exhausted. I currently work full time, but I sell part time on eBay and Amazon, part time selling Avon, as well as trying to build some residual streams of income online with freelance writing. I have gotten to the point that I physically feel ill and can't even think straight which makes me want to do nothing more than sit and watch tv, but I know that if I don't do the work I won't succeed. Its great to hear that you are making headway with your business, but what many don't realize is that when it comes to building a business, whether online or off, it takes time. Success is not achieved overnight no matter what so many of these get rich quick schemes tell you. Stick with it and don't forget to take some time for yourself and you will achieve the success you are working towards.

I am also working on online and i love it. Reason is you can also give job to others than working under somone in a company. For ladies, online jobs are really good to meet the expenses and support the husband. Yet we get good and bad experience, we have to take this a platform of learning many things. keep continue your hardwork!!

Hello Masihi Keep optimistic about the future and only hard work with reward you. Until you get some more serious business up running i can always recomend you to hang around MyLot and get some quality discussions and comments done. And im confident your body well tell you when you have been working to much, it will simply say "Stop", but that your husband who supports your also fear you do to much is just a great sign that he loves you. What sort of skills do you have? Then i shall keep you in mind in case i come across some work you can do.

I think one of the best things about working online (or owning any business) is you can usually set your own hours. Of course your freedom is limited by your need for money...but if you want to be successful for the long-term, I think you should be careful not to burn yourself out when you're still just getting started. Working smart is better than working hard. It's better to take some time off so you can keep going than to utterly exhaust yourself and damage your health so you HAVE to quit in a few months.

I really wish I could find a way to make money online! I unfortunately have lost quite a bit of money hoping that the online place won't rip me off, but it always ends up being some kind of scam! My hubby got laid off from work last year and we have been living on unemployment so finances right now are horrific!
