Are online jobs really worth it?

Now I know many people earn money online. Youtubers and even us mylotters. But don't you think that those who opt for this as a full-time activity are actually missing out on the real stuff and becoming couch potatoes?

@amal106 It is how you look at things my friend. For some people that's the only sources of their income for host of reason even if they want to have a regular job. Take for example the case of those who are already has retired from work. For us who are still young and strong it is good to have a regular job or employment my friend.

But my friend, the question here is aren't they missing out on the actual stuff that most of us face in a corporate office or while running a business?

@amal06 I am not missing out on anything. I see people face to face at church. I interact on a regular basis with parents and students with my daughter's homeschool events and sporting teams. I also do private tutoring and I see and interact with people regularly. A work-from-home job does not equal being a hermit. And even if it did, that is what some prefer.

I don't know about full time. Unless you have several apps you're commuted to, or have a successful business on ebay.

From what I read some u tubers actually do very well. I've read of one that actually quit their day time job. I suppose someone could put their nose to the bosses grindstone and still miss out on the real stuff? On the other hand what are the earnings and is it worth it? Good question you put out here.

Well I guess you can't really know until you do it.

@amal06 That's true. It is an uphill battle at first starting out and we need to give it time.

I was employed many years ago, and get experience on the working world. So now, I am going to make money at home, tired of the outside agenda. For the young, I hope they can gain some experience before coming to home to make money. Its important that they should have some knowledge on the things they have study in college, or school.

If its how they feel to sustain their way of living, why not.

I'm a mom and I work online. Yes I'm missing out some stuff. If I go back to working full-time, yes I'd be hanging out with friends, attend meetings, travel here and there etc. but I'd be missing something more important. My family. I love teaching my kid and play with him. For me it doesn't matter where I work, I'm enjoying what I do and I have time for my family and friends. :)

I have tried to make money in both of the venues you mentioned and have had NO success. I don't see myself as becoming a couch potato. I homeschool and watch my grandbabies so their parents can work. Daycare would take their whole paychecks, plus you can't trust strangers to care for your child like their grandmother could. The biggie right now is that both of my parents are disabled and need care. There is no way we could hire round the clock care, so we do the best we can and need to stay close to them. I don't see an online job as becoming a couch potato. It is a necessity for me and one I have yet to find.
