1) I work online because I enjoy what I do, it is mainly for pleasure, but the money does make a difference sometimes. 2)I do not earn enough to support myself or my family at all, it is just a little extra, I am a stay at home Mum, and my partner works. 3)Yes my partner 4)What I earn online is pocket money, that I do not withdraw when minimum is made, I just let it build up. My partner is the chief income earner, so we use his money for bills and food etc

1) I mostly work online so that I have a little bit of extra spending money. It isn't money that helps us to meet our monthly requirements, but it certainly does come in handy from time to time. 2) I don't have a full time job besides what I do online because I don't need that for our family to get by. 3) My husband is the bread winner in our house, so he is really the one that is supporting me financially while I am at home raising our children. 4) I don't have social security or anything like that, only what my husband does for our family.

1. I work to earn extra money to finance my studies. 2. For my expenses in school, its enough. But for my family, I think its not enough. 3. My parents always back me up whenever the salary I got through online is delayed. Many thanks to their understanding nature. 4. No I just depend on myself and on my parents if there's no choice. By the way, working through online is great. You are the boss of your own time and availability, as well as the place of work ;)

1. this is not actually because of the work online, surfing net is one of my daily routines and having extra income doing such is an addition to my addiction.. ahaha so maybe we can put it in both pleasure and money. ^^ 2. i got a full time job and i am happy with it, this on line job serves as one of my past time breather. having paid in on line work is just an addition but i am not relying on it. 3. yes i got my husband and i will have to say that he really is a responsible person to rely on. ^^ 4. nope

1. Working online is a great way to make money without having to step inside a cubicle from 9 to 5. It's also good that you don't have to deal with bosses because they can be a real pain, especially the ones who think they are the smartest and you should listen to everything they say. 2. Even though online jobs are great, you can never really make a significant amount of money unless you quit your full time job and goes for it. Personally I don't think online jobs are bad, just that it's difficult to retire on that unless you have a lot of experience in it. 3. I'm going to college so I pay for my own tuition along with room & board. My mom does help me but she does not make enough so I do not want to burden her with anymore financial hardship. I rely mostly on federal aid, scholarship, and work to pay for my tuition. 4. Stated above, I'm in college so I mostly just rely on aid and scholarship. Right now I have enough money for this year so I don't have to borrow but I don't know how next year will be. It's always the best to be prepared and make some money on the sideline by online jobs. It's certainly not enough to pay for my tuition but helps out with grocery or gas money.

1) I work online for money, the tiny amount of money that it brings in goes towards Christmas presents, so I am not spending out a lot during that time of year. 2) I have a part time job but at the moment I am doing a lot of overtime, so it is virtually a full time job. 3) I don't have anyone supporting me financially, if I am not earning enough then I just have to deal with it. 4) No I do not depend on social security money. I believe if you want money then you should work for it and not depend on others. It is not a bottomless pit, the country is in crisis because people take all the "free" money they can.

Hello wongchoiyee, Following are my answers to your questions: 1. I work online because I enjoy working within the comforts of my own home and it really suits my preferences in life. As I've always wanted to be my own boss, I feel so good and thankful that I am able to keep it that way. 2. Yes, I would say I am earning enough from my online jobs despite the fact that online jobs cannot be expected on a regular basis. Aside from my online jobs, I do not have a full time job but I have a small internet cafe business which I opted to maintain so as to be assured of daily cash inflow. 3. No, I do not have any supporters to support me financially. 4. No, I do not have social security money or someone else's money to depend on if online money is not enough. That's it. Have a good day yourself. God bless you, too.

I do work online for some extra money. I certainly cannot earn a living from the online earnings but it does supplement me from time to time.I work part-time plus have early retirement pay. I would ideally like to just collect my retirement and work at home online but not enough earnings for me to live on plus in my part-time job I get medical benefits so that is the main reason I have that part-time job. We have a 2 income family so that helps as well.

1. I work online for the independence, convenience and freedom it gives me (well, more than a 9-5 does) 2. At the moment, no, I don't earn enough, but what I do earn helps. 3. No. No friends or family support me financially. I do get the odd monetary gift now and again. They help me in other ways which I think is just as important (and appreciated). I don't take for granted that they'll always give me a place to lay my head, food to eat and that they always have my best interests and welfare at heart. 4. I used to. I'm proud to say I no longer do. It took improvement in my health, courage and stepping out on faith.

I think my parents cause as i have said, i'm still a student. 4. if someday i have a job, online work is my part time job.

working online is not only for money but a great deal of it for pleasure pal and i earn enough as a kid studying and coming online at my free times and mylot provides me with enough money to lead a kid life.If i fail to earn enough for myself i got my dad and big brother who can provide me with the money i need...I mostly depend on my father for basic survival because this money is surely not enough to live, it is just for fun

Hi! 1. I work online for the fun of it. I am online almost everyday so I said to myself, why can't earn with what I do right? Money was my primary motive but when I found mylot, I started enjoying it as well. 2. I just started, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed about this one. 3. My parents are still around. they can bail me out temporarily if I get into a bind. 4. No. :)
