I seem to spend a lot of time online trying to make money. It seems like I work hard but don't see the results I want. I know it takes a lot of time and I have been online trying to make money for at least four or five years but so far I haven't made enough each month to quit my day job which is my ultimate goal. Some people seem to have a lot of success and they are making good money within a few months or just a year. I need to learn how to work smarter and not harder so I don't have to waste a lot of my precious time for a few cents a day. How can I do this?

Well worded! I have been trying to do the same. I think the best way to do this, is to work based on quality, not quantity. A lot of times when I will be working on a job, I'll rush through it to get it done,or do it quickly to be able to complete the next task. I think if we spent more time working on a specific task, then more tasks,more money could be made. I'm not sure if that made much sense? Hopefully it did. What sites have you been trying to make money with? I've tried ChaCha, Points2shop, hubpages, and now I'm officially on My Lot.

I used to do ChaCha and kgb but like you said I would rush through to make as much as I could and that reflected in my quality so needless to say I no longer do those two sites. I do a lot of GPT sites and I'm always on the lookout for other things. I would like to get into article writing but I tend to get lazy. I'm just sick of the noise out there and every guru pushing their system that say you're going to make all this money. I'd love just one legitimate system that works. I tend to stick with free sites because it can cost a lot of money chasing the next thing.

By doing the things that best benefit your time online is working smart. You can work and work your heart out online but if your time is not used wisely, it doesnt mean as much to you at the end of the day.

This is true. Time is something you can't get back. I need to find a way to use my time more wisely online. Thanks.

I try to stick to a chosen few that I know are legit and have a long history of paying. It really does make more sense to find something you know is a good source of payments and stick with those few to give them more of your time. I do hear of new things that catch my attention once in a while and I'll try them out. If I search them out and they have a good reputation and a good payment history I will certainly give them some of my time to see if they prove themselves. And as hardworkinggirl said, this is certanily not my only source of income. If it was I'm afraid I might go hungry. It does supply me with some extra money but not enough to live on. I don't know of any way to fully live on what you make online. I hear that some do it. I just don't know how

I'm definitely trying to find a way to do it full time because I'm ready to leave the rat race. I just need one really good idea.
