Make Money Online Quickly Without Hard Work!


makemoneyonline See all the easy money flying out of the computer screen? Someone grab a bucket!

Back in 2008 I was a stay-at-home mom who didn’t know what HTML was or where websites “came from.”

Really, I didn’t. (I remember finally figuring out that websites live in servers and we contact them via IP addresses. Duh.)

I decided that I wanted to learn. So I did. The hard way.

Fast forward several years and lots of bad attempts (including a website that was done in all graphics), and I’ve figured out quite a few things. I sell my own e-books, have a handful of niche websites and derive a decent income stream from the internet.

What I didn’t realize back in 2008 is how my new hobby would aid us in our current adventure on the road. Because of this little internet gig, we have true freedom – as long as there is a connection, of course.

Why am I telling you this?

I want to share my knowledge and experience on TravelToast because I know there are some of you out there who dream like I do: to have complete freedom over your day, with your spouse by your side in perfect bliss.

(Okay, it’s blissful 75 percent of the time. We still have to do laundry and dishes.)

The fact is, the internet is here to stay and it’s changing the way we live, learn and earn. If you’re not staking your claim of cyber reality, you really should re-think your decision no matter if you want to travel or not. Having a presence online can open up a whole new world to you and might just give you the lifestyle you’ve been pining for.

So, why no TravelToast posts on making money yet?

I’ve been too busy “making money without a J-O-B” to really share much about making money without a J-O-B. And frankly, I wasn’t sure how to write about it without sounding… um… obnoxious or like a slick car salesman like so many other websites do in order to sell you a “system.” (Not to say there aren’t any good systems out there, but there’s a lot of perfectly good free information, too.)

I want to start my own series on making money online by first sharing with you one profound truth, that if you can wrap your head around now, will save you lots of time and torture in the future. Here it is:

Being successful online isn’t easy and it isn’t quick.

That’s not to say that you can’t make money quickly – if you work harder. (Note how those two go hand-in-hand.) Just like in the Real World, the same qualities that move you ahead at a J-O-B are the same ones that will launch you online: hard work, discipline, tenacity and drive.

I also want to tell you something else:

There’s room for you here. Plenty of room.

Just be prepared for some self-doubt, mistakes, distraction and unbearable waiting. I’ll try and help you skip over as much of that as possible. Just check back here for more tips and advice… and I’ll let you in on what I know.

In the meantime, tell me what you’d like to learn. Is there anything in particular you’d like to do online, like start a blog or write an ebook?

I am very interested in this series you’re doing :) I would love more info on how to create e-books. I’ve been looking into it recently and have NO idea where to start. Thanks!

Jennifer, thanks for the comment. You’re giving me the incentive to move forward… perhaps I will start out with writing ebooks. Feel free to write me personally if you have specific questions. I’m always here to help out.

Hi Melanie, I would also be very interested in learning more about ebooks and other ways to earn money online! My husband and I are just starting to dabble in thinking about workamping/living full time in an RV. He’s been unemployed for a year and a half, and it’s starting to get down to the wire…we have to do something different! I love to write, and am just starting a blog. I think I could do ebooks, I have lots of topic ideas floating around up there, just prioritize and get some of them out in cyberspace! Anyway, I just found your blog, so I am going to scour the rest of it for tips! We have two very small children, who I plan on homeschooling regardless of our decision to travel or not. I’m excited to have found this blog!

Truth be told, the net will be here to remain in addition to it’s changing just how we all live, discover in addition to generate.

I know this post was written quite a long time ago but I wondered if I could pick your brains. We took our family on the road around the US and Canada for 8 months a few years ago. We have been desperate to get back to it ever since as we so loved it and want to do it forever The trouble is that we are not from the US so we can’t legally work there. We are, of course, looking at the internet, but we are just learning the ropes and getting started. You talk about your online niche sites making you money, but I have heard it is really hard to make money on the net. I was wondering if you could provide the links to your other sites so I can get an idea of what you are talking about. Did you start your blog first or your other sites? How do you draw people to them? Also, any other advice you could give me would be hugely appreciated.
