No. I don't deserve thanks. I'm just repaying them. They have been a better family to me then my real family. I owe them. They make me feel welcome.

Hi! First of all I would like to congratulate you for being successful online at a young age. Actually, I never get hold of any of my earnings online yet. Hopefully I would be able to do it in the days to come. Perhaps you could share some of your knowledge about online job.

My main reason to earn money online, is that my days are really busy so I don't have money for a real job, and I usually sell things I make to the people around me to survive. When I'm at home, it gives me a way to supplement days where few people around me purchase what I make.

Well, there must something that you have been doing all along that will make them see you as greedy with money while doing online earning. I do think that they might always be seeing you attached so much in your computer to earn online. Well, they can have a point at that because you might be missing out on a lot of other things because you are so focused in earning online. Excessive online activities can be hurtful too. As for me, I just accumulate what little money I earn online. Then once I reach a certain big amount, I will invest it in other opportunities.

Greedy? For earning money a young age? I'm amazed at how much generations have changed. Instead of being commended of working at 16, you are being insulted. You should be rewarded because how many teenagers actually want to work? You are not greedy. What do I do with my online earnings? I put it towards my monthly income, which is then allocated throughout my expenditures.

I don't understand. How are you being greedy? By earning your own money to pay for things? It doesn't make sense. It should make them feel proud you are making money in some way or form that isn't negative. I truly don't understand people sometimes.

May be They are not wrong because I spend most of my time online rather than anything else like playing outside, meeting with friends etc so they think like that.

I just keep it somewhere just in case i need it for anything.. I hoped i had learned abut mylot earlier though, i could have saved earlier for the future.. It's not really being greedy, just being prepared, and using the internet for my benefit.

Every person on this earth do some work to earn and to fulfil their desires. It's good that you doing that. Earning money is a aim of every person. Without money you can not do any thing.

I am a late bloomer, I've only been earning on line for five plus years. I use my earnings to buy items on line so as not to dip into my household allowance. Secondly, I buy gifts for the holidays and birthdays. I suppose I generally use on line earnings to extend my budget. I love earning on line, it allows me to get some of the things I want instead of only being able to afford things I need.

I don't think you're greedy, but just be careful not to be. I haven't spent my online earnings. I think I'll chip in it on people who really need it.

It is good to start earning when you are young, then you can experience the fact of this society whereby we need the money to survive. However, I do hope you can allocate your time well so that, you will not ignore your studies and your golden period to learn, to improve and to equip yourself for higher challenges. In fact, not so many people can really earn very much from the online earning. In my advise, you should concentrate more in your offline works as studies, self-improvement courses and so on. You should treat your online earning as one of your hobbies.

Because the Internet is a giant arcade. That is, it's something you do for fun. Money is a tool. For employees, it's a tool to get things you need for living. For employers, it's a tool to get employees. For government, it's a tool to keep the people constructively occupied. So that's basically what money is for: keeping people constructively occupied. Your parents don't think 'hanging out at the arcade' is constructive enough; but they might be convinced if you show them how it is constructive---how myLot helps its users and -other readers to live after they go home from the arcade & as they go back to their constructive, truly-helpful jobs!

What I do with my earnings is I earn them and save them. But sometimes, I use it to buy some stuff that I like (there are really lots of stuff that I want to buy). On the other hand, I try to donate even small amounts to charities. A dollar or two would already make a difference. Also, I save my online earnings because I don't have work yet. With the situation in my country and with my chosen field, it's quite hard to look for a job so it's good that there are some ways to earn money online. Anyway, my mom is happy for me whenever I get to earn something from the internet because I have something for me. I try to contribute to some bills as well with it.

I don't see it as greedy. If you can make good money off the internet, good for you. I don't make a whole lot off the internet, not enough to pay for anything large. It would be nice to make enough money off the internet to make a living, but I don't see it happening for me. You have to do a lot or have a good idea to make any real money off the internet.

I am earning online so that I could have some savings that I could use in the future. Before, I spend my money for things I don't even need but I regret. Now, I want to save because I know that one day I will be in need for it.
