Just curious to see what my fellow mylotters goals for making money online. How much you want to start making,etc. i have a few projects in mind that I am going to start working on and I am working towards getting enough money up for the down payment on starting online classes. Plus it would be great to start earning between $500-$1000 a month.I know that isn't going to be easy, but I also know it can be done. So what are you goals?

Well I myself would actually already by satisfied if I were to earn 500$ a year online (though more would of course be even better). I'm a student, so I only just need some extra cash to get around. It's not like I need this money to survive or anything. :)

It's harder than you think for me. I just haven't found good ways to make money online. I also don't have that much time to spend online every day. Anyway, good luck to you too!

I am just hoping to make a few bucks here and there. I am not at the current month wanting to solely live off online earnings. I wanted and still am interested in learning as much as I can so that it can be a side residual income. Maybe a few years from now I can then make it a full time goal but not so much at the current time.

I do have a goal and I am 1/8 of the way there. I just have to keep working towards it. I just started a few months ago but would like to reach my goal in about a year if possible. Very hopeful and I am trying hard. Hope you can make your goal too. Take care.

I haven´t been able to earn more than what I do: $100 a month. It´s true that I´m not living at the US. If you live in the US there are more opportunities as some sites are not international. I´m happy with that amount as I can live with the money I get from my retirement and a pension. But my online money is for vacations and travel. I went in March for 2 weeks to Aruba. I go somewhere for 2 weeks very year and it´s done with my work online.

cool.. I would love to take a vacation once a year. You must make enough money in a years time to do that.

$100 a month takes you many places. Not to the other side of th world, but this last March I visited Aruba. The picture in my avatar is me with a piña colada in Aruba. I always place an avatar from my last vacation here as to reming me that I have to earn it

Eventually I'd like enough to cover rent, $700/month. That would be Godsend. But for the now of it, anything better than last month is the stepping stone approach I have..Enjoy!

that is one way to look at it :) if every month you are earning more, that is just one step closer to your goal even if its a small bit.. Just means whatever your doing is working! Keep it up.

Goals hmm.... Well, for me, online earning is supposed to be only an extra. Although, at the moment, I have no other source of income so I would like to get as much out of it as I can at this time. But even so, I would want to continue earning money online even after I've established an offline source of income already. One way I see that happening is through blogs so that is one thing I want to work on.

I understand that.. I am in the process of launching my blog.. whenever I can get enough time to work on it lol.. Right now I can't work, but my husband is working.. but still we are still tight on money. I want to bring in extra income to help out. Don't get me wrong I would love to eventually make up to 1000 a month or more working online.. that is my main goal.

I've just started to MMO a few months ago. It require us to be patient and work hard. I still earn a little money not over 30$ a month. But I hope that next year it will be better. My goal is 500$ a month. That's all. Good luck to you.

yes it does require alot of patience and hard work. but if you are determined, then you will make it. If you just started and already making some money that is good. good luck to you I am sure you will achieve your goal.

My long term goals are to make enough money to buy or build a house out in the middle of nowhere. But it has to be lots of acreage (I just looked at a piece of land that was 120 acres) and it needs to be wooded with a very nice big stream for fishing. So yeah I'm asking for allot. I make pretty good money now online, but I've been at it for 11 years. I also know that if I am to get my house out in the middle of nowhere, that I have to kick it up a few notches in terms of making money online. I've come up with a few ideas, so we'll see what happens with them.

That is a big goal, but I am sure you will make it. If you been doing this for 11 years then I am sure you know alot and know not what to do. Actually i would love to get an old house and fix it up out in the country. But hey I will settle to be able to buy or build a house like you. Keep it up and I am sure you will be successful

considering that I still consider myself as a newbie in the world of making money online, I think it's just modest to start a goal that is attainable for the moment. So I'm setting my stage 1 goal to earn at least $10 per day. If things will work out well and I will be consistently achieving that amount for a month or two, then I'll step into stage 2 goal which is earning $20-$30 per day... and so forth up to $1,000 per day. Well, that's just my personal long term goal... hey, if you gotta dream, you might as well dream bigger, hahaha.

Making money online is not a fixed income and I accept the fact that sites do come and go and that is why I won't be able to tell what I will expect to get on my online work, since most of the sites I have been to was nowhere now and some sites just to survive cut off their threshold and it was really frustrating. It wasn't easy unlike before I used to have five to 10 steady sites that give me money, but now, most of those sites closed down, some cut off percentage in their payment just to continue their site. It is really difficult these days so I can only work on sites that is still paying and say good bye to those who are still in question for paying their members. About my goal? well that is to figure out some more sites that will help me on making money online. I also needed to try some selling online but I don't know any supplier yet so I need to wait for that.

making money online can be hard and takes alot of hard work. That is why i choose to work the sites that I know are paying and then work on my own projects. I am hoping evedtually they will start paying off.

I will do my very best to reach at least to reach the minimum payout. That is will be my short time goal. Anyway I hope I can earn $500 each month even if it is still too far to achieve it but with more efforts I am sure I will reach it some day~ All the best to everyone here in Mylot~

Your goal sounds like a good one and is sort of what I'm shooting for. I want to reach the point where I can live off of what I make online. I want to get my online income to at least a $1000 per month income in the next 4 years. I've been playing around with making money online for a few years but I'm going to devote some serious time to my writing and my websites to increase my income and reach my goal. What I'm doing is working so I just have to do more of it to increase the income stream. Good luck to you. I hope you find success as well.

I actually do not have any long term goals...because I would be very disappointed if I set those kind of goals, so I just go with the flow and work my 8 to 5 job and make some actual cash at the end of the month

As of now I am just trying to see and study the success of others in making money on line but of course I am looking for an opportunity to be dependent on it to sustain my family needs in the future.

No! Setting a goal by 'how much money I make' would be like saying I'm 'two yardsticks tall' (when I'm only 5'9" ... it would TAKE two yardsticks to 'measure' that, but ...) Money is only a measurement of the value I provide. 'Providing the actual value' is one way of describing my goal. And I don't decide how much I provide; I just provide 'all that I can,' my friends provide the rest by 'manifesting it to me' (in the form of "views," which comes to me in the form of "money.")
