How do you consider that you are working to earn money or making money. You work in order to earn for a living. When you have buy and sell that is also making money. How about you? Any comments please.

I do not know if I am logically correct in my words but here are my views in context of this discussion. Earning has something to do with feeling proud, like as in teh case of respect so in the case of money. You work hard for "earning" money. On the other hand making money does not suit that well with your hard work. You use your brain your intelligence to "make" money perhaps in a better and faster way.

You earn money if you are in a job coz you earn on holiday or sunday without having any activity. And you make money coz your activity helps to make money. You cant make money on holiday but can earn. I think this is the difference. Have a nice time.

If you are hard working you can earn money even on holidays or sundays in your way of doing it.

When you say earning money that is literally means you are working in a certain firm or store and earn your money because you are paid a salary for earning money.When you say making money it means that you have a business going on under your management to earn money as your own income earner.

Hi! Earning money is when you trade some of your time and energy for someone else's money, i.e., as in a job, and you only get paid once. Making money is when you put in your time and energy, and maybe someone else's time and energy, and you create a stream of money over and over and over again. In other words, you get paid more than once. Examples: Time and energy to build a business = continued profits for years and then maybe the chance to sell the business for big bucks. Time and energy to write a book that gets sold for years. Time and energy to write a song where the songwriter receives royalties forever. Have a nice day!

In my simple understanding of the terms I think earning money is used when you are giving up your services or putting up our talents and skills to gain money. That is earning since you put in the effort yourself. For the making money part, I believe it can be attributed to making money work for you. That is money making money. It can be achieved through investments and other financial instruments where in you don't have to put on your services and skills to add or accumulate more money. Just the fact that your money grows without you trying to earn it. Well, that is as far as my understanding of the usage of the terms is. I hope I am clear with my thoughts and ideas.

Haha, you make money when you earn money, but you don't always earn money when you make money! It depends on whether or not you've earned the money you make, you see? ...I actually have no idea, that's just a guess. I don't make much of a distinction between the two, but I assume earning money is under the job section and making money is just generic ways to get money. xD

Unless you earn money, you cannot make money and that too, if your earning is more than your expenditure. If the reverse occurs that is your earning is less than your expenditure, you would be in debt. Thus, earning money is the first and foremost condition for making money and the next is less expenditure in comparison to earning.

I think it's depend because sometime the both statement is the same and sometimes it's not. Depends on the sentence you are using. Earn money is like making money and vice versa making money is earning money. Have a great day!
