Honestly my friends, it's been a long time am financially broke, I mean, if I got money today it would just be for a couple of days. Don't have consistent source of income. I've been looking online for some kind of an "extra income" for my daily needs but still hanging on the limb. Am I alone here on this situation? Anyone could share what would be the best? Your share is highly appreciated... Mobhomeir here..

Being a freelancer is the best job even at home you can work anytime you want as long as you meet deadlines of the current project. Good luck.

I tried to do that and I was never selected for projects. I think I got maybe one job out of hundreds I tried for and that only paid about $30. It was easy and I did get paid, but I never heard from that guy again. I was with two freelance type sites for a while and they didn't help me.

No, sadly your not alone. The best I can suggest is this, always consider time to be money. No to start a successful online business or marketing or whatever you would do, it would take days, weeks, even months, to tie all the loose ends and be professional. Now obviously we still have to pay bills and eat during that time so the best I can tell you is to go out and find a job, any job. While you work it would give you some income while you build your online income.

That is very good advice. I depend on my online earnings more for fun money than for any real earnings. I think I have made maybe $20 all year. You sure couldn't survive on that! You have to have a source of income while building your business online. Like the old saying goes: Don't quit your day job!

Hello guys (gaming & daickardt) you're both right guys. Online income needs time to earn big..a sort of accumulation from a small shared amount from your task or whatever project you would be doing. Well, if you need it for your monthly amortizations or monthly bills I think that's the right thing i guess. A sort of "slowly but surely". However if you need big amount for something in a matter of days from now I think it can't give you assurance. Not unless you've been in that online business for quite sometime already.. Yeah I would not quit as long as I can still manage it. Thank you guys for the aspiration and compliments. At least I know I have some friends behind who are concerned..Again I appreciate it..God Bless Us All Mobhomeir here..

Hi dear... I understand your position and don't know how to help you. Before getting my job i was also striving for survival. At that time i was reporting for newspaper and wrote articles. If you are able to do this, then it can be a big source for you. I know there are lots of online earning sites... Sorry to say that i am totally ignorant about it. Have a nice day.

Hello Mobhomeir :) Just like me I am also looking for work. Though it's hard to look for a job nowadays, still, I look forward in striving hard to have a good and stable job someday. Now, I'm only depending of having an income in mylot as a starter. Just believe in yourself :) You are still luckier than others who have nothing at all. GOD BLESS YOU*

You are doing a good thing by sharing your thoughts on a site that actually pays you. I am on a low income, on disability, and so is my husband. We only bring in a couple of thousand dollars a month, and we have to pay all rent, utilities, food, etc. with that money. We really don't have a lot left to save up, but we try. We live from month to month. However, we both get involved with sites like MyLot, and Gather, so that we can make a bit of extra money for our savings accounts. Just keep writing on line, and doing whatever you can do to bring in extra money. It'll happen some day.

Thank you L, and thank you M. Yes, I've kept at it, since I joined in November 2006. The way I see it, there's no such thing as boredom, when one owns a computer. Even when I didn't have a computer, and only had my iPod Touch, I kept up. I got really good at using the iTouch, that way. LOL Thanks for the admiration, and yes, the income I've made on here has helped. I've made about $300 so far, and it's all gone into savings.

Not everyone who goes online looking to make money becomes billionaires like Mark Zuckerberg. But I wouldn't give up on it. Perhaps, we won't be billionaires or even millionaires or even "thousandaires" (he he ) but we should keep at it until we make it. Won't we, mobhoemeir? Quitters never win and winners never quit.

I agree with you. We should never quit or else we will surely not see our dreams come true. I believe that we could still make it since online marketing is an open global field...go go go!

Hello uminoor thanks for responding...truly am not longing to be very rich I never wish that..what i wanted for me to be is I would be free from financial constraints. It means, I would be grasping for help if I would be needing simple things. Yeah I would never quit because the quitter never wins. I know there would comes a time am already at the top, it would just be a matter of patience and patience and patience and patience... Thanks again Uminoor and tombiz...more power to us...

I am still convinced that I can make a living out of online job. The simple reason is I am no computer savvy and also I am an indiscipline when I am online. I don't have the patience to hang on to any one site for long except for mylot which I have created a record for myself to be the longest site I patronize. Everyone of us have experienced financial problems in our life but with strong determination and thriftiness I don't see any reason why you can't succeed in life. Life is like a football, today you might be at the bottom but when the ball roll over you'll suddenly find yourself at the top. Just be patient when you are at the lowest point of your life as you will never know what the future is like. There is still light at the other end of the tunnel.

Hello Mob It seems that you are disappointed much and tired up with the financial problems. As you deleted your avatar picture and stick with the green man, I can guess the depth of disappointment. What is the real problem, can’t you try for a job. I don’t think we can earn enough from online. Online earning also depends on luck and how can we rely on the same. It is difficult to live without a regular income. Mob, I am sorry I don’t have a clear picture of your situation, I mean why you are trying online income only. Hope you will find a regular income very soon and start a happy life. Best of luck to my friend.

I thought I would end up without seeing your comment my dear friend. I miss you shre..how's everything going? You guess it right my dear friend..scarcity is the main keyword of my problem. Am not expecting positively on online business because this kind of business takes time and invest a lot to produce a lot because money begets money. If you need money for immediate needs, online business not reliable not unless if you're there for quite sometime earning a lot. Thanks for the concern shree, I am not losing hope anyway as long as I live... My regards to your family circle my friend..I miss you a lot.. Mobhomeir here..

Honestly, my friend, why do you limit your search to online online job? In desperate measures like this, look beyond just online jobs. There may be jobs in the real world that can pay you much better (at the start), so get one out there while building your online profile and job. Don't just sit and wonder why, just go out and try, try, try. Wishing you find a job real soon.

We are on the same boat...I am also struggling to earn money online. Just last week, I got a help from a friend who shared his secrets of making online money for free. I am reviewing the materials now and hopefully be able to implement the secrets he shared to me. But one thing for sure it required some hard work and patience and of course time.

Hi mobhomeir, Sadly you are not alone because many of us are also experiencing the downfalls and pitfalls of this drowning economy. I would suggest online earnings but because you are in need of immediate earnings I would say it would be best to get a part-time job as oppose to online earnings. Online earnings when you start out as a newbie basically is you have the time and or not in need of money then you can grow with it and afford the several mistakes many of us make along the way. I do wish you well and hope whichever route you take it is for the best financially.
