What is your target online income to quit your regular job? Mine is $10 a day. If I can make that much I will focus on my online income and will consider it as my primary source of income and will forget about regular jobs. Because on online earnings you can work hard everyday and watch it grow daily! I mean everyday you can do something to increase your daily earnings. What about you?

well 10$ is not motivating but your idea is good... increase the target from 10$ a day to 50$ a day then you can quit job... trust me you can reach the amount if you work harder and smarter way.. i am planning to work online full time.. very soon. this may happen in another few months.

My goal isn't really a dollar amount per day as much as it is, getting myself well established online that I don't have to keep writing every day, but I'm nowhere near that level of amount of articles I've written. Right now I'm just trying to get to my goal of a thousand articles on the websites I write for. With Review Stream I've written 456 articles with Triond I've written 9 articles With Helium I've written 45 Artilces

I will have to say twice of that because I am already having $18 USD a day with my daytime job so it will then be great if i can make $20 per day on my online job. I will have the comfort of being at home and just start doing my online job if i feel like doing it already. I can sleep late and wake up late as well, not have a boss that watches your every move, no pesky co-worker that will create some issues on you. You will not travel anymore and spend for the gas of you car or spend for the fare to go to your regular job. But having a regular job has stability, you will have your tenure and you can have big money as well when you retire. You will also have your medical insurance. But then you just have to weigh things out which one will you consider. Think also about your future. If this online job is VERY STABLE then just go for it. If not, then do not quit your regular job and continue doing the online job as a part time.

You live on $18 a day! I do 4 hours a week, and i get £20 for that! Tbf, £20 doesnt go a long way here, but still, thats insane!

Thanks for the advice! Yeah you are right about the money to get when we retire. You can not get that from online jobs! @fpsninja You should consider moving to the Philippines

@fpsninja: yes you should go here in the Philippines and spend your pounds here and you will really get the stretch of your currency.

I would never quit my regular job (i am currently at uni, so the job i would get after uni) to replace it with an online job, certainly not for $10 a day. I mean, maybe if i managed to start earning riduclous money like £400 a day or something, but thats unlikely to happen, most of these sites that say that are scammy. I wouldn't quit your day job for $10 a day, you can't live off that!

i agree with you. but not because the pound is more value than the dollar but it's a fact that no online website last forever. for all i know, mylot would stop paying some day.

that is another good point letranknight. By quitting at $10 a day, you assume that you will earn more, and that the $10 remains constant. The internet is a fast changing place, and you payments can shrink as quickly as they grow!

I used to earn $9 by working 3 hours a day in cloudcrowd. I could eran more than $9. My account there got suspended. If I am still there, I will not have a real job but instead, I'll focus on my online and on my business.

hello damned idle, i have experience for a while, one thing is for sure, there's never been a permanent thing when it comes to online earning. unless you are good writer, i strongly suggest that we shouldn't give up the job. it's not really worth not all. not all money earning sites last long, as for mylot, what happens if they stop paying, think about it.

Yes you are right that it is not stable. But there are some stable like IT jobs. And about investments, you have to invest it on various sites.

A $10 a day isn't bad. Here in my country it is equivalent to the minimum wage, at least close enough.Hi, Damned_dle.:) As a mother, a full time one at that, my priority is my kids especially because they are still so young to be left to someone else. My 3 year old daughter has a health issue so I couldn't take the risk to leave her as often as a regular offline job requires. However, given my freedom and everything else not to worry about, I'd still prefer having a regular job.There's nothing more fulfilling than working with my co humans.There are things that you just couldn't learn inside the comforts of our homes. We need to get out and mingle with living things to experience what is life all about.Outside is where the action is.:) Have a wonderful day, friend.:)

Actually it is more than the minimum wage considering the tax to be deducted and the transportation expenses. But I understand your reason of wanting to have work on a real office with co workers. But for me I had enough of those It guess it is part of my being anti-social

I agree with the first poster. You can't replace your day job for $10, unless you salary is below that. It just doesn't make sense, but I understand where your coming from. Earning while doing less is beneficial, in some ways, especially working at home, online. But if it is not your and is only working for someone on the net, then that would be a gamble i'm NOT willing to take.

$10 a day is alot of money to earn from online but it is definitely not enough for me to spend just buying meals for myself. I will not quit my full time job but used whatever amount I earn online to supplement it.

$10 a day actually a very good target - it is enough for basic needs and is an amount more or less equal to a part time job. Only quit your job when online earning has already become your part time job and you want to make it full time. Here is a useful guide I found online, you may take a look if you are interested in making a full time income online: http://www.helium.com/items/1906100-work-from-home-freelance-work-freelance-site-paid-to-write-affiliate-marketing-online-working Don't quit your day time job until you are able to earn a part time income and want to expand your job to a full time one. All of the suggestions need some time before you are actually earning.

Working at home and online would be an easier job for many since it gives you those flexible hours to do as you wish and take care of your family and house while still earning. For me to stay at home and work I would have to make $100 a day at least online for me to even consider the earnings worth while. One great thing about online earnings is you can get paid daily but for now my husband and I are using the online income just as an extra helping hand to save. Have a great day!

I would like to quit my regular job for solely working online, but right now that is not possible. Barely started with Neobux and Onbux, more as a tryout than anything. I consider them patience jobs for right now. And listening and looking to what other people are saying here on My Lot about the different possiblities out there.

Earning extra income online is nice but I wouldn't consider leaving my regular job. I still prefer the office environment and personal interaction with other people. It's good to work at the comforts of our home but there are more things to learn out there.

Frankly speaking, $10 is not enough for me to make a living. If I need to give up my regular job at hand, and turn to make money on the Internet, $200 per day may be my final target. In fact, for everyone who wants to earn a living online, they will have to burden the pupossiblity of losing their all the income because the Internet is full of dangers although many people have gained big fortunes online.

I only do these during ym free time but when i have to start going to school this won't be easy to do so i'll have to quit for awhile =( but i love doing these cause i love talking and sharing my experinces this is fun to me.

To my opinion for a single or small family maybe it alright , but remember not everyday you see sunlight over your head , something it's raining and sometimes it heavy too. Part time , maybe full time , think twice unless there's really a genuine online business out there.

My target income would be at least a $100 a day in order for me to decide on quiting my day job. Although I enjoy writing articles and participating in forums and discussion such as my lot but I think it would eventually become work if I do it as a means to earn money. I would then loose the joy of doing this since I will be forcing myself to do this in order to earn.

Where I live I couldn't survive on $10 a day unless I planned on living in my parents house or on the street. $10 a day would barely cover half of the rent costs. I wouldn't quit a real job because you could be earning more than $10 an hour, as opposed to 10 dollars a day.

I quit my job last year and focus on finding ways on how to earn online. I got several clients through oDesk and was able to earn $25-$30/day. For some people who are from other countries, that won't be enough but here in the Philippines that amount is good enough since the cost of living here is much cheaper.
