WANT TO MAKE A LIVING FROM THE INTERNET?
DON'T UNDERSTAND HOW IT ALL WORKS?
AFRAID OF GETTING IT WRONG?
FRIGHTENED YOU MIGHT GET RIPPED OFF?
DON'T BELIEVE IN THE "GET RICH QUICK" HYPE?
My story by Zena James
My whole life was on the verge of collapsing, my house had to be sold as I could not pay the mortgage, we were living in a not so nice area and even though we had help paying the rent from the state, there were days when only the children could eat. The car had gone long ago and because of the move in area and no car I could no longer get to work. I had borrowed so much money from friends and family that some of them stopped taking my calls. I had fallen so far that I could not fall any further. I eventually found a way.
My neighbour in the flats I lived in had a computer so everyday she let me use it. I treated next door as my place of work and every day I searched the internet for the way around my plight. I have to say it was not easy, it took many many hours until I came upon How 2 make money on-line.
I´m not telling you that my fortunes changed overnight because it didn´t. I had, however, found the way to start the process off.
Here´s how I did it.
My neighbour had a landline telephone, and I started working on the chatlines during the day. Now I know what you're saying, "I couldn´t possibly do that," but listen you can start working on them almost immediately without any costs. No-one starts off saying I want to work on chatlines, but it becomes good fun and believe it or not you chat to some very interesting people and yes just ones who want to talk about sex, but it becomes a job and while I was chatting to these people I continued to work through your advice.
I also joined the Survey sites, initially, I could only join one, but eventually joined 3. I then earned enough money to buy a computer of my own, have internet and a landline installed. With that I then joined 2 on-line job boards and the free car programme. This provided me with transport. Things were looking up, I did, however, not stop there.
I was working on the chatlines during the day while the children were at school, during the evening I worked as an At Home Call Centre Operator. I was working for 4 freelance companies, 3 survey companies, driving a free car which had advertising all over it.
I then started to look at the niche marketing side of things and may I take this opportunity to thank Stuart for his guidance.
Now two years after this all started my life has been totally turned around. I now still drive a free car (advertising has changed over the last couple of years), I have brought my own home (not far from where I used to live). I have repaid all the money to family and friends and have a healthy savings account.
I still work for the survey companies and chat lines (although not so many hours now) and I have set up my own niche marketing company. May I thank you whole heartedly for the creation of the website and the team of people at How 2 who are constantly trying to find the best information to keep us informed.
