That’s what we always dream of right?

Nothing like dragging yourself from the bed at an ungodly hour, stuck inside the traffic, sitting in the office all day, and slaving your life away for a meager paycheck.

Instead, wake up at the time you feel like, take your laptop do some stuff while sipping a cup of tea. Take a vacation when you want, spend some quality time with your loved ones, and travel around the world.

Isn’t that great???

That’s a fairytale though, too bad. We’ve all at some point in time seeing all these scamming ads about making $100 in 30 minutes by filling out some surveys, creating your own e-store, making cool cash by reselling some old crap on Amazon or eBay. Lots of variations with promises of easy money, and thereby giving you false hope of a better life, they look too good to be true.

You are not a fool; you know for sure that it’s not the truth. Of course, it can’t be as easy as they make it sound.

However, I’ve made a living on the internet for quite a while now, and while that looks awesome, there are a lot of things behind the scene that you won’t see many people talk about. Not that it’s a secret, but because many people don’t like the truth. They only want to hear that it is fun, easy and straightforward.

I definitely agree! Even though we know in our mind that such ads are not representing the reality - we are still attracted to them in a subconscious way like "what if it was possible".

But as long as you understand that online business takes a lot of hard work & effort and that you have to put a lot of time into it before even seeing the first dollar - you can still work from home, out of your bed, in your pajamas. As long as you keep working on your online business.

I believe WA provides a perfect education and all it takes is dedication & self-discipline from there!

I enjoyed your post. Had a lot of stuff I have been wondering about. I was just explaining to a friend about this "online thing" and he looked at me like I was crazy...haha. I think that awesome. And you are totally right about the education and lots of it! In fact, after some reading, I am going to start my sole proprietorship today or tomorrow!

Wow! That's great.
I've met people in the past who stopped blogging after 2 to 3 months, and the reason was that, it wasn't the way they always felt it was. There is a need for proper reorientation.

Thanks for stopping by.

#4 hits home for me. I can live a better lifestyle in Kyiv, Ukraine for $1300/ mth. than I can in America for $4000/mth. WA and living abroad and remotely go hand in hand.

Thanks for sharing.

I love it here. I don't think the Russians can take me away. The cost of living, history, women, cuisine, traditions, museums, churches, women, hospitality, freedom-loving people, fun-loving, happy people, activites, the half plus seven rule, and Snow!.
Did I mention the women?

Good evening my friend, I love this life and it's many of times that I'm behind my laptop in my shorts doing my song and dance and making money. What a beautiful life it is, . However it's not all fun and games. Have a blessed night and outstanding holiday season.
