Making money on the internet seems to be a dream for many, but the reality of it is simple in nature. Most people are “computer literate”, can operate elements of a modern desktop GUI, can access mounted filesystems, and can even do basic HTML markup on their blogs, such as you’ll find here on this one.
What most don’t clearly understand is that the capability of making money on the internet stretches far beyond the stereotypical, but somewhat standard “cubicle” job you work, typically, from 9:00 to 5:00 or somewhat like that. And I’m not here to demonstrate strategies on websites that “could” earn you money with investment, right marketing procedures, starting costs, etc. Nope. I am going to show you how I make money online, how you can make money on the internet without investments, and how you can transfer that money in to the kind of smart investments that make you even richer! Remember, without some dedication, money won’t land on most peoples’ laps from nothing, so be serious about sophistication, working ethics, and, of course, desire to succeed in general.
First, we will get some things straight – I, myself, am not rich now, but I do know how rich people get rich, and know basic math (advanced as well), have dedication, and knowledge on the subject. I know this, and you should probably do too – rich people make or have made more money than most people, hence, that’s why they’re rich. Clearly they are employing a different ideal than the “cubicle, hourly, fixed-wage, strict, limited-position” jobs can give to most. They have a bigger idea than just working everyday, making a specific income, and getting by, saving time by time and hoping to get somewhere one day. The problem is that most people blow their money on crap that doesn’t produce much value, they get knee-deep in credit/student loan debts, they have expenses up the alley on their car payments, rent, general utilities, huge cell phone service bills, home bought food, fast-food dining, clothing, home electrical appliances, gas/fuel/battery recharging, gift purchases, and any other general, day to day expenses that people live with. These people often aren’t top-dog at money managing like they should be, so it’d be (to my surprise) not quite surprising at all that many people owe more than they earn, have more liabilities than assets, are getting foreclosed, repossessions, electrical bills cut, etc. This has become the modern way, very much especially in the United States(where I used to live). Now with “ObamaCare” you will have to be paying health insurance as well, or facing penalties. The worst thing you can do is let yourself spend everything because if you work hard to blow your money right after, it’s almost like never having money overall. You had your money, but you spent it, didn’t save much, and you spent way more than you save. You don’t become wealthy by spending more than you’re earning. That is why these simple guidelines below should help you get an idea of how things can work out better for yourself:
- 1: Do not spend more than you save; do not save less than you spend.
- 2: Do not buy things with value to throw them away; they are assets.
- 3: Do not overlook things with small value; cash never adds down, it adds up, even in miniscule portions.
- 4: Do not assume that you don’t earn enough money. It’s more often than not that you spend a lot of your earnings rather than save them, so that gives you the illusion that you don’t have much. If you have a small income, saving should be an even bigger priority than spending more to try and compensate for your little earnings. Even if you earn relatively nothing, assets still exist, you can make money with them, saving whatever comes your way works, and coming up with quick funding ideas is easier than ever via the internet and many websites.
- 5: Do not just try and work harder, try and work smarter. If hard, physical work alone counted for the returns of income then labor workers would all be rich, and models would all be poor, when quite the opposite seems to work better. It’s not to say that any labor workers don’t put hard work in, but hard work alone, in the physical sense, doesn’t rarely ever turn in to promising wealth.
- 6: Do not think that you need to be some kind of brilliant mastermind to get out of the “cubicle” work setting. In fact 20% of billionaires in the U.S. never even attended college, and counting Walt Disney himself, he never even completed high school. And there’s a handful of millionaires who never even went to high school either. Clearly you are getting the idea now that extensive, formal education isn’t promising, and if it was then every college graduate should be making heaps of money and/or be successful. But that’s not really the case. Most college graduates are in major student debt, plenty may be in credit card debt, have to work at traditional entry level jobs to pay rent, pay off their loan debt, and live in the same bubble they could have without going to college in the first place. Billionaire Mark Cuban says that a Master’s of Business Association is pointless, since most aspects of business can be understood freely, and experience as you go works well for those who have a passion. Point is simple: If you have the desire to start a business, start a business. That doesn’t mean buildings, employees, etc. It can be a simple little business for yourself that requires no start up costs, such as a self-employed invidiual who runs their own income, and uses their legal (non-business) name to work and earn money. There are dozens of simple jobs even young teens could get like this, namely pet sitting, babysitting, landscaping, assistant work, tutoring/teaching younger kids, etc. You don’t need expense college debt to make money on your own incentives. In the real world people want skills, and you don’t need college to get skills. Don’t believe me? Sure, the degree is a sign of completion of a study course, but when it comes down to applicable, enforceable knowledge, workmanship, and creativity, college can’t beat the fact that Mark Zuckerberg has more assets than many of the alumni of his own former classes combined will ever reach in many lifetimes, lineages, and incomes. The success, fame, or money certain people make that separates them from the crowd doesn’t boil down to formal education being the reason for their success at all. The more you know is always better, but college doesn’t guarantee anyone success; it raises debt big time lowering students’ net worth, raising their liabilities, and forcing them or others to have to pay it back over years and years and years ahead. Do not ever think that college itself is the key to your success.
Ironically, many ads urge you to go to college in hopes of making you “ready for the real world”, “earning more money”, etc. They do not do either right off the bat, and preparation for the real world is not something you learn in a formal classroom setting. Earning you more money is also arguable, since whoever paid your tuition is down tens of thousands of dollars (or more) while you graduate, hopefully looking for a job to end up paying your liabilities back for years in the process of not technically making any profit thereof. Ideas, things, and skills make you the big bucks. A movie script can make you famous and rich, but it’s almost guaranteed that making $35.00-$60.00 per hour with no business incentive ever will from your salary alone. Why? Supply and demand is one reason for that. Another reason is that you’re only paid per hour while you work, and there’s no foreseeable hope to make anything else. Also, you have only one income stream in many cases, and that’s a big error right there. Why would anyone want to have one income stream or two, when they can have three, four, five, six, or more? The more income streams you have the more potential you have. Simple math makes good clarification of this. Would you rather earn $30.00 fixed and hourly forever, nothing more, or fifteen income streams giving you $2.00 per hour? You would immediately think that it’s the same thing, what’s the difference, right? The difference is that the person with fifteen income streams has fifteen different areas of money coming in, and if they have fourteen times more income streams than you, what makes anyone think they can’t have thirty? And if any of their income streams increases just a few bucks they already surpassed you. You think it’s silly to have many small income streams rather than a single bigger one, but more smaller income streams often can become larger income streams. Alas, you would rather be stuck and hopeless with your single income stream, or have fifteen or more that have the potential to earn more than your single one can hourly in each stream? You have more chances, you have to take more chances. If you never took chances, expanded your potential and horizons, and just remain with just one stuck, fixed income forever you are living the poor man’s game – stay in job, work hard, work harder, earn the same, have basically one income stream, and live on that forever. You are rarely ever going to have decent wealth that way, with that kind of mindset. You need more income streams, better ideas, and a more expanded horizon outside of just an hourly job. Sure, hourly jobs pay the bills, promise a salary, and it’s what keeps most people going. But it’s not what makes most people wealthy, and it never will be.
