This problem isn’t a new a problem I’ve seen this situation play out a thousand times over the years. I have seen situations where a person totally failed at internet network marketing, however hit a grand slam selling T- shirts.  I’ve seen affiliate marketers fail at selling amazon products and kill it selling network marketing products.

From the very beginning of my online marketing adventure I have had my fair share of trials and tribulations. Even now that I make money online I still run into constant snags, error messages, strange coding problems.

Still though, the allure of making money from my home with my computer has caused me to continue forward always seeking to improve my internet marketing skills.  So with the rest of this post I want to give you a peek into what a person who makes money online actually does.

Making Money Online – Trying Everything Under The Sun

There are actually people out there who have absolutely no technical skill wanting to make money online. Some fool told them that they can all they have to do is buy X product and boom they will be into profits in no time. Sadly I was one of those people who bought into the illusion.
