why disagreeing isnt bad. and i think it was me who disagreed with you. i dont think disagreeing is bad. it leads to conversation and hearing hte other side and possibly realizing the truth if you are wrong.

I didn't mean everyone should become an accountant. I was only pointing out that the more education you have, the higher your salary will be. There are plenty of other careers where you need lots of education. Pick one.

lol yea i agree. but it is true tho that some of the most successful people are business men or entrepreneurs who dont necesarily have much of an education. just had an idea and developed on it.

If you don't know how to do a job it doesn't matter where you try to find work - you will not earn a lot of money .. Even for the internet you must know what you are doing and how ..and thats a part of education :)

I think you have to know the right people in order to make a decent salary. I know people that have BA, BS, Master Degrees; and they are not even working in the field they got there degree in and the pay stinks. Seems almost like wasted time.

I still think a good education is the best thing for you to have if you want a good salary. As for the internet I personally don't see a ton of jobs that you could do that would make you alot of money.

In the real world education really does effect salary but online I guess it doesn't really matter. But it's also a lot harder to make good money online as opposed to real life.

The more education you have the more money you will make, most people looking to make money on line usually have little education.

Thank you  - Thank you smiley with sign
I think depened where you were cause not all the country will pay according to their lever of educations where as internet money making was more on one efforts to learn from other,to try on new things and the ideas or concepts that you can get.

It depends the job you want to have. If you like to be an administrator, yes, the education is important. But I know many educated people that they don't have a good job. They even work as labours.

in case of making money on net, i think one shld be smart and at least known to eng... thats enough.. smartness plays a better role than edu here
• United States

Here is an example: An accountant charges $130.00 an hour where I live. It takes seven years to become an accountant. I think in the end it is worth the effort.

Online jobs have no relations with your qualifications whatsoever In real, if you get yourself more qualified obviously you will earn more and more

I think you can have all the education and the world and still have a low salary. In this world its all about skill and determination that gets you places
