Setting Realistic Expectations

One central theme to any of these money making blogs, or those who want to go to work for themselves is that they all want to live like MTV Cribs, or offering up that lifestyle as if it’s so easy to attain. Now, do not get me wrong. There are many fairly easy ways (if you want to work) that you can make what is life changing money online. Few are going to be done in a couple of hours a day, and most likely not going to put you on a episode of MTV Cribs, but you can still change your life and work for yourself if that is what you really want to do.

What do I mean by that statement above?

Well, let’s get down to the nuts and bolts of it. I live in the midwest of the United States. By that I mean, we do not have the same cost of living as a New York, Miami, Los Angeles, Seattle or alike. You can get a nice sized house for a realistic amount of money. However, let’s go beyond that. The median income in the U.S. according to the census is around $43,585.00 a year, or roughly $838.00 gross per week. If you could make an extra $1000.00 per month, that would be life changing to most people. That is an extra $12,000.00 per year, and would afford them a nice family vacation, new house, kids college tuition or alike. For many people, that is realistic life changing income in their daily lives.

How hard is it to make $1000.00 extra per month? Not hard. Some options will require capital investment (equipment, software, servers, etc), and others are little more than time. Either way, it would involve a commitment from you. Which I honestly believe is the hardest part for most people looking to make money online or on the side from their normal day job.

I have had plenty of people locally, friends and acquaintances, want me to help them make extra money. Most give up in the first week despite the actual “work” is fairly easy. I have given them opportunities to easy make an extra $500/1000/2000 just to have them piss it away being lazy. I can’t make you do the work, and if you can’t carry your weight, frankly it’s not worth my time.

Ultimately, anyone can teach you the SKILLS. But we can’t give you WILL.
