You know how it is, you come online and think you are going to do something really big, but (and there is always a but) after going from program to program and never finding the help or encouragement I needed, I finally started my own online business and am now teaching others how to use their writing talent to make money online..
Aside from all the "freebie" seekers out there, there really is a market for your product or service if you are willing to put in the "due diligence" to get it done. Hard work pays off online just as it does off line....all it takes is the willingness to stick to it!
You have to "learn to earn" - you can't become a doctor or lawyer overnight...the same is true of your online efforts...find a mentor and learn from them...yes it will take time, yes it will take effort, yes it will take commitment-just as any other high-paying business.
Notice I said business....you have to treat your online efforts as a business and you will then begin to understand and reap the real rewards of owning your own business.
