I work a full time job that keeps me busy even when im not at work and its hard to get everything done at work and i barely am able to afford the bills i have now and still living at home. I get home and just want to lay down and do nothing but in the back of my head i need to keep making money and go home and write articles, come on mylot, do slideshows for money and whatever else i do onine to make money. There isn't enough time in one day to do everything i need to do to make money. I am actually at work right now writing this really fast so i can get back to work and keep doing all my paperwork for the day. How do you make time to get online and get more money?

If you are still living at home with a full time job, how on earth do you not have enough money to pay bills? If you don't pay rent what are you spending money on? I think, if you have no more time to work, then you had better find a way to cut spending. Are you paying for a car/insurance? If so, do you really need the car or could you use public transit? Perhaps you should look for a job that pays you more for all the hard work you put in, if you're really not making enough to pay your bills. When I work full-time I am also too tired to do anything when I get home. I am only making money online now because I am home with a new baby on maternity leave. I find time to right in between playing with and feeding my baby.

No i dont pay rent. I make around 300 too maybe 380 a week depeneding on how many hours i work and that isnt enough at all to pay 300 on a car payment no local transit where i live in South Florida LOL. I have around 500 in college loans a month to pay for and that right there is 800 to pay for and then i have a cell phone, insurance and some medical bills to pay off so its always sometihng. Never enough money.

Oh ok I understand. Paying off college loans would break the bank right there! Let alone medical expenses. Now I understand why you have no time or energy! It's probably worth it to try and find a better job, after all, you worked hard and paid a lot of money for that college degree. But until you find one it will be tough, and it's nice that your parents still let you live with them while you pay off your college and medical debt.

I struggle with the same thing, but then I decided sometimes it is okay to take a few days break to catch up, which is what I did over the weekend. I have a small chocolate business and have a bunch of orders, which is good to make money, so I decided that had to be my first priority this past weekend and all of my online activity had to take a backseat. Today I have a lull in my full time job so decided to take a 1/2 hour to come onto mylot.

I use the internet from my phone. Use it when you eat, use it when you go for a long break in the toilet ( make sure you hold it tight!), use it before you go to bed, use it when you're walking ( watch your steps!). It works, just be careful and never use it when you are driving!

I can understand your feeling. I'm squeezing time for my works too. We have fixed 24 hours per day but infinite things to do, so we must do them in a more and more efficient way. Besides, you can also cut some unnecessary cost to relieve financial pressure.

In my experience, since I am still a student, I treat my online ventures as my productive way of spending my spare time. As much as I would want to spend the whole day earning online, my schedule in school just won't allow me. I guess as I graduate soon and enter the real world of employment, my online ventures are still insufficient to be considered as a main source of income. I would prefer earning online as a part-time job and I would like to get a full time job in the corporate world as a jump-start to my career. Money indeed allows us to survive and fulfill our different needs. However, I guess what matters most is that we manage to enjoy what we are doing. We should not be pressured of earning much money because it will only give a pain in our head. Having fun while earning even if we are only earning a little at a time, we will soon reap all the fruits of our labor. Big payouts came from little earnings plus much enjoyment. God bless!

I have to agree with you on the ' not enough time in the day' statement. No matter how fast I work, no matter how much planning ahead I try to do, something always comes up, and takes time and effort to sort out. Sadly it's just a fact of life in the modern world. Unless you can get other people to do some of the work for you then there is never enough time in the day. So it must be true, the only way to earn money is by working your socks off. Hopefully one day the time and effort will all be worth it. But until then, it's head down and work. Have a productive day.

I do it when I have time to spare, which is when my bf does other things, or late at night if I can't fall asleep. And I don't really watch that much tv, so when he and my friends watch tv, I work online instead. I am sure this is not the best way for everyone, since some people really need to schedule time for this, but it works for me. If you want to try my approach, just go online to earn whenever you have some time to spare, no matter how little. It all adds up in the end!
