8 Resources to Make Money Online (Yes, I am a real person)

resources to make money online

I know so many of you¬†are seeking answers and solutions. Weeding through the many scams and “get rich quick schemes” you are finding. Below you have¬†8 great, real resources to get you started right now. I do understand your agony. When¬†I started as a freelancer many years ago, it wasn’t easy then and it is certainly no different now, unless you know where to look to find “real information“. Let me assure you, there are plenty of “real live individuals” like myself who ARE¬†working from home and online¬†this very instance. It CAN be done, by you and anyone else too.

Personally, I have¬†freelanced for about 15 years in total; at points in my life I returned back to the corporate workforce, only to realize that it just isn’t for me. It never allowed me the freedom to be with my family, to be creative and to do what I wanted, when I wanted. As a freelancer, I feel responsible for my own successes and my own failures.

For some, working online has even become a full time career.

It was late 2015,¬†that I once again said to myself, Screw the Cubicle for Good ¬†and I picked myself up and started all over again!! So no matter what your situation, or if you feel safer staying employed while you start on your journey to self-employment, there are no right or wrong answers! It’s whatever works for you and how you feel and can manage your finances and lifestyle at any given time. Don’t let anyone tell you it can’t be done, because it can, YOU CAN!!
