Get Rich Quick Online? Not Gonna Happen!

It's a hard thing to do. You've just lost your job, or just plain got fed up with it. You've decided that you're going to make a living on the Internet. You have no idea what you want to do but you do know that you need to start making money and fast. You have it all figured out. You're going to do a search for something that promises you will make X amount of dollars in your first 30 days. You find an amount you can live with at one of those really flashy sites and you sign up.

30 days later you're still broke and wondering why.

It's not totally your fault. These companies prey on people like you. They know you don't want to go to that lousy job anymore. They know you want instant riches. So they promise you the moon, hoping and knowing that you're going to pay them the 20 dollars a month, or whatever, to make some obscene amount of money. But it never happens. You're disillusioned, frustrated and clueless as to where to turn. You don't know who to trust anymore and you're at your wits end.

Like I said, it's not totally your fault. But you are going to have to accept some of the blame. Nobody can pay $20 a month for a business then sit back and expect to make any kind of real money! If you were going to open up a candy store on the corner you'd have thousands of dollars in expenses in rent, inventory and advertising. Why should online be any different? It's not! No, you don't have to spend nearly as much money as you do in the "real" world, but some investment is going to be required. It is a fact of life that you need to learn to accept. Otherwise, you're just headed for more heartache.

So what's the answer? The answer is to have a realistic outlook on what is possible. Aside from that, you need to get an education. Hopefully, browsing around this site will help provide you with some of that education. But it can't do it all. Why? Because there are too many variables in making a living online. Everyone has different skills and interests. One person may be very technically adept while another can't find the "on" switch of his computer. These people are not going to go in the same direction.

The most important thing is to sit down and make a game plan. Figure out how much you can afford to spend and what you can reasonably expect to get back from that investment. Figure out where your strengths are. What do you like? What do you hate? There has to be something that you are naturally good at or have an interest in that will give you a head start.

The chances of you getting rich quick on the internet are about as good as you winning the lottery... It's simply not gonna happen! But with a little planning and determination, you can eventually reach a monthly income that will sustain you in the life you are accustomed to and beyond.

Dedicated to Your Online Business Success,
