Why do people keep trying to find jobs offline while thousands of dollars could be made on the web without having to leave your home? Millions of folks spend hours blogging or searching through the web, and then they go working at a miserable paying 9 to 5 occupation. Why not make money on the web from your computer?
There are many many ways you can make money on the web even working in your pajamas from the comfort of your home. The three primary ways are:
1.- You can work for somebody else as an employee.
2.- You can work as a freelancer or self-employed person.
3.- You can work for yourself and build your own business.
What are the advantages and disadvantages of each:
Working online for someone else means you get an hourly wage for the hours worked just like any other “dirt” job that’s not online.
Advantage: You get a regular predictable pay check that you can plan your future with.
Disadvantage: You can only work so many hours at a computer and your income is limited to those hours … just like any other job.
Working as a freelancer or self-employed person:
You are contracting your services and getting paid by the job by whoever hires you. Your pay will depend on the agreement you have with the company you work for.
Advantage: You have no boss but the clock. You can schedule your time however you want as long as you complete the job by the contract deadline.
Disadvantage: Your income is limited by your ability to find companies that need your skills, and by the time and energy you can spend working. No contracts … no money.
Build Your Own Business:
You start a small online business and find a profitable niche and business model which you expand upon until you can hire others and leverage your time and income to basically anything you want.
Advantage: You are in control of your life and whether your business succeeds or fails. Do it right and you have both freedom and money.
Disadvantage: Do it wrong and its just another job with a lot more headaches than you had before and you have to deal with the psychology of failure. Are you a strong enough person to survive a bad experience and try again?
The ultimate risk vs. reward scenario that’s part of the game of life. There are jobs available online now if you want to give it a try.
Henry Ford once said that “if you think you can, or you think you can’t, you’re right”. What do you think?
