I've spent last three years working towards actually earning money online. In most of that time period though, money has been leaving my wallet faster than it has been coming into my wallet.
"EARN MONEY FAST OPPORTUNITIES"
In my first year online, I tried all kinds of "earn-money-fast opportunities" --- everything from MLM to turnkey websites. I hate to admit this, but if I didn't make any money first couple of months after I had signed up for one of these programs, I just gave up and moved on to next opportunity.
Then I would begin whole process all over again. I found a new site that promised to all who joined, that they would earn a lot of money fast, and they would earn their money without hard work.
I know truth now, it was just another line of bulls**t!!!!
Twelve months later, all I had to show for my first year online, was many wasted hours and lots of wasted money.
THE MAKING OF A WEBSITE
As I began my second year, I realized that I had to make my own website. I didn't know anything about HTML. And, I knew nothing about where to find a hosting company, or even why I needed one. So first six months of that second year, I was learning basics of how to become a webmaster. I read through all forums about web-mastering and SEO that I could find on Internet, and tried to build a website that finally could make me some money.
I finally got my website up and running.
For first 8 months that I had my website, I did not earn any real money for all of my hard work. The worst thing that could happen to a person began to happen to me... I began to lose hope. I began to believe that making money from Internet was just a far-fetched dream that I could never attain on my own.
I was not alone. Hundreds of thousands of people have met or will meet this same crossroad in their Internet careers. Some will take easy road and walk away from their dreams. Others will push on, not willing to let their dreams die.
I decided to push on.
I added new pages of content to my website every week. I exchanged links with other websites as often I could. Slowly and steadily, visitors were starting to come to my little corner of internet to browse and buy.
In early stages, I had 30-50 visitors each day. Then, I began to see 100-150 a day. And soon, first small amount of money was earned through my website.
Now it's 4 months after my first payday, and traffic is still getting higher each week. Even though I'm not earning a whole lot of money now, I believe it's just a matter of time until I can leave my day job.
