i see alot of people struggling making money. jobs disappearing, businesses closing, homes forclosing, people moving away. families today are 1 payck from being homeless. 1 paycheck!! the days of mom and dad working at the same job for 30 yrs and getting a big pension are gone. we are the generation that has to make ends meet on enginuity. so what about making money at home? does it really work? work is work, cannot expect to make excellent money by sitting on the couch and playing computer games all day. but sitting at home and working on your own schedule is worth chking out. what do you think?

Well a lot of people now a days struggle to meet ends meet that's how we were before, but slowly my dad and mom worked their ways up so that they could be better providers now my dad is the only one working and the one that provides while my mom stays at home to cook and clean and all that. It really is no fun to always be meeting ends meet, but we no longer have that problem and I am really grateful that my dad has a job were he is being paid good. One day I hope to return the favor and to be able to give money back to my mom and dad and to be able to buy them everything they want for a change so I am going to work hard in school get my eduction to get a good paying job hopefully my parents will be able to retire soon so that they could relax I just know that's what my dad would love to do so that he won't have to work no more.

why sure it is worth checking out first of all if you have small children you save on child care you can also save on gas and the time that is used to travel to and from your job .the question is is there enough on line jobs that truly pay enough to feed your children or pay your bills?

working at home through internet is the best option for me so far. But I don't think i could live with it forever like this. As far as I know there is nothing permanent in the internet. So one must not rely on it.

You have to do your best. To search different ways to earn money if you and your family need them. You are on right place here in MyLot! I am here for the reason that i do not want to take money from my parents. I can do it by myself!

This is possible if you are a computer programmer, a graphic designer, a writer, a photographer and other professions that works for the sole purpose of doing and accepting assignments online. You hold your time at home, sit and still can relax a bit, your boss is on the other line depending on your work and at least you don't go to work from 8am to 5pm. It is an advantage and it is really happening to most people particularly to those I have mentioned above. If you have the skill to create a website of your own, you can earn good money. You can also sell your stuffs online, but take note that there are lots of competitors around. But anyway it is you who make a decision and it is you who design your life. It's up to you also if you can take the challenge. But as for what I know, not all online workers earn money in a fixed amount. This depends on time, availability of assignment offered and opportunity being offered. Happy Mylotting.

I believe at first you'll feel that it's hard to work at home because you're not getting used to it but if you have patient and determination in doing what you wanted to achieve in working online, you make it.
