If I will offer you something where you can earn as dollars while staying in your country (Philippines in my case). What are the things that will prevent you from doing it? And also, what are the things that will make you do it? I will not do it if its illegal of course, if its doesn't have sense, if the people aren't serious, if the people doesn't care for each other, if they always have excuses when its time to pay my cut, if its hoax or scam. On the other hand, I will do it if its legal, if its profitable, if the service or product is high quality, if the people are sincere and caring, if everyone has a fair chance. Even if I don't know how to do it, as long as they are willing to teach me and let me learn, I will do it.

If it is another one just like what I am doing here in MyLot where I am paid based on my personal efforts, "you work you earn you don't work you don't earn", well, it's not for me. But if the opportunity allows me to build a system where I can exert efforts only at the beginning by building the system, and then after the system is built, I can spend my time on some other important things to do and the money continues to pour in, then I'll go for it! Working for linear income: "Work stop, income stop." Working for residual income: "Work stop, income continues."

I think we're on the same boat. Currently I'm an employee and I've just realized the big difference of linear and leveraged income. So currently I'm building a system too to have better future because just clinging to job won't bring me anywhere. Are you staying here in Manila too? It would be nice to meet someone like you and have a good chat with regards to these systems that we can share.

I am always up for honest work, however, I always follow my gut. If I get a gut instinct that something is not right for me - I will not do it, not matter how much money I earn. I always look at who I am doing the work for, if I like a company or individual I will assist them but if I question the company's ideals and values etc...it is a deal breaker for me. One's heart needs to be in it, even if it is short-term and it must be able to assist in longer term goal acquisition.

Well, it depends on - Whether I am interested in doing that or not. Everything is secondary. I am no great human who bothers or is worried if things are a scam. If I want to do it, I will do it. The only criteria - My brain and heart should go Yes for it - This is quite difficult as I am quite critical of anything I do.

Hi bro. Are you talking about online job or offline? If it is online, it's difficult to determine which is legal or not. The site may look legal at the beginning but later in the end it disappered. Who expected that "studio traffic" would be a scam after 5 years paying all his members?

I will do it if i can get what i need form doing it within legal and moral condition . For example, i can improve my english, expand my mind, and of course earn money, even it is not so much, but i am happy to get this kind of profit. On the other hand, i will get response from friends when i start a topic. People share their mind with me. And i am so happy to hear different voice from all over the world. This is so cool.

Depends on what you mean by illegal, much of the internet earnings world (HYIP, MLM etc.) is illegal in most countries and I am fine with that. Immoral (while harder to define exactly) is something I wouldn't do, something that breaks minor laws is fine :)

In my case (I live in Italy) I think that the only privilege that you can lead the economy, it is have a good job. At this time, however, things did not go far in the right direction. For example, I find myself almost at the age of 37, still unemployed. This crisis, or other things to prevent me from earning. I answer if this was the meaning of your question, or, at least I intended so.
