Sure there are opportunities to make a lot of money online, but they are far and few between. It takes a lot of work, a lot of hours and a lot of doing the same thing over and over again to make a good income online.
I currently spend 10+ hours a day working on my online business. I wake up really early in the morning and stay up really late at night. When I calculate it per hour, I could probably be making more at a regular 9-5 job.
There is a key difference though that keeps me going. Instead of working a job, I am building a business. I am working for myself, I have no boss. I have freedom to work as much as I want or as little as I want and get results accordingly.
I am building a passive income so the more I work now, the less I will need to work later.
If you are going to be successful online, you must realize that it does not come overnight. You are going to be doing a lot of boring and mundane tasks for hours on end. You are going to be writing a lot, you are going to be doing a lot of research.
One day you may make $100 and another day only $10-$15. Income will fluctuate. You need to be willing to push through the hard days. You are planting your seeds.
Each project is a little seed that you are planting and nurturing. Before you know it you will have a full garden that you can harvest. It will be worth it. You may not see the results right away, but they will come.
