Hello Everyone. I really don't know what to say here. I'm 57 years old and I've been trying to learn how to make money on the internet for years now. So far I've spent much, much more than I've made. It can be discouraging at times, but I know it can be done with the right focus.

I look forward to contributing to the community here and hope that this is finally the stepping stone that gets me started in the right direction. Before I go much further, I would like to give a little bit of history about myself.

I grew up in a small town in North Texas. Being a small town, everyone knew everyone and most had an interest in each other’s success or failure. We were extremely poor, but my parents instilled in me the desire to learn and to work hard. They also taught me to help others. I have spent my life using these skills and traits.

I started working on a drilling rig when I was still in High School. The internet hadn’t even been invented yet. After nearly 15 years on the rigs I decided that I needed something a little less dangerous. I started to work in an airplane seat factory and worked my way up to management. But I was still having to work my rear end off every day. I put in 12-14 hour days, sometime 7 days a week. I was putting my money in a company 401K.

I had been looking into internet businesses for a couple of years and had dabbled a little bit but nothing seemed to fit. There was no help and it seemed like there was no one that wanted to teach a newbie the ropes. I blew money on ebooks and courses to learn how to market on the internet. I bought websites with no idea how to set them up. It was really hit and miss. I would work all day and come home at night and spend 3 or 4 more hours on the internet, trying to figure out how to put it all together.

Then the market crashed in 2008 and my 401K took a horrible beating. I lost nearly everything. I was crushed. So I tried even harder to make the internet business work. Nothing seemed to work and I just went deeper in debt.

Fast forward to 2015. I was still trying to find the magic formula, then I came across something different. I costs nothing to start. I get 2 websites and they show me how to set them up. My word, what is this? They train me to use all of the tools. They give me complete training on setting everything up, how to optimize my websites for SEO, and how to use Social Media for advertising. At last, I have found the Holy Grail.

Answer #1: I would be happy earning $5000/month.

The amount of money you earn is directly proportional to the amount of time and hard work that you are willing to put forth.
