Found this old discussion written in 2009. Wanted to chime in but couldn't really figure out if it was a discussion or a math problem. Anyway I can't answer the question posed so I rephrased it. Rather than ask: “How hard do you work for money?” My question is: “Do you work hard for YOUR money?” My answer is: Yes! { REF: mylot.com/post/2136304/how-hard-do-you-work-for-money }

Just getting out of bed in the morning is hard, never mind actually working. If you enjoy the work, I don't suppose it is hard

hi @ronrybs, I enjoy the work I do. So naturally, it is not hard for me.

@raaman - I enjoy the work too. But it gets hard when I don't see monetary results that should reflect how much effort I put out. But that doesn't stop me! I get up every day (except Sundays) and struggle for the legal tender.

I work hard for my money. I have to because there's no easy way to earn money. Well, at least not that I know of. Soon if our plans work out I will be a stay-at-home mom. But I don't think life will be easier if I stay at home. On the contrary, life will be more challenging. I will have more responsibilities. I will not earn money directly, true, but that doesn't mean I will not be contributing anything to our family. Taking care of our child and our home is a big contribution. So I praise all those who take care of their families and their homes. I know it's hard work.

I've been a stay-at-home for short periods of time. FACT. Being a stay-at-home parent has nothing to do with NOT working! Being a mom is hard work! My friend got her degree in engineering and she joked about how much easier that was to earn that degree than to be a parent. She was joking but she was serious!

@cmoneyspinner It really is harder to be a stay-at-home parent.

Not sure if you know the late Donna Summers but her song, along with the title from the other post actually inspired my post. “She works hard for the money!” Remember that song??

erm no I guess.. I never think that I was "working for money" or "working to get paid".. I am working because I enjoy working.. I usually pick something I like doing. Even when I got stuck doing something mundane, very earlier on in my career.. I've tried to enjoy it. So for this question.. no I don't work hard for money. I work hard because I enjoy it. And you know what, money just falls in place after that.

Whenever I worked a regular 9 to 5, outside of the home job, I most certainly was thinking about working for the money. Of course I wanted to enjoy the work too. Which is why if the job sucked I left! Cause it wasn't worth the money! I've always worked hard. I've usually always enjoyed the work that I did. I enjoy what I do now and it's actually not “hard” in the sense that it's easy for me to do. So the work is not hard. Getting the work that I do to generate consistent income to help pay bills? Oh yeah! That's hard. I wish the money would fall into place for all my effort. But when I see commissions earned it at least lets me know real income is being earned. So my answer is: “Yes. I work hard for my money.” I don't have the luxury of just working for the love of it! Wish I did. Would be nice.

@Drosophila - I don't have to hypothesize about having all the money I want cause that will never happen. But I sure would love that be in a situation where I would have to think about what I would do. Now I'm weary just thinking about the fact that I'll never have to think about it.

@cmoneyspinner well, I know plenty people who retired only to go on to have mental issues due to lack of work. xD Surely you will retire one day, we all do.

I can at least count my pennies. But I don't dare divide the total amount by the number of years I've been trying to make money. It would make me hate math!

Yes, this was before when I had my office job. It was stressful too, but now, I am only earning from sites like myLot which I found to be so easy because I set my work pace.

Love the fact that you can work at your own pace. I can stay up until midnight or rise early. As long as I have Internet access and my laptop doesn't go bonkers, it's great! I can work all day without my shoes on!

Not me. I pluck it off the trees in my backyard. Haha. Just kidding. Its hard to earn and takes a lot of effort. My real life job requires much less effort, lol.

The online work is definitely harder and the paycheck is not consistent. But I like it! Beats doing nothing!

@cmoneyspinner I work very hard for my money but still do not make enough to be able to retire. I try new things but do not always succeed. Things may start out good but then they do not continue.
