    I've been working for myself at home for around 4 years now. In that time I have never had a single week where I made the same amount as any other week.

    Most people count right down to the penny what their next paycheck will be. Me, I have no way of knowing if next weeks pay will be 200 bucks more or less than last week!

    On average I make a bit more each week, which is what should be happening if your doing it right. However I've had plenty of weeks that were worst than a year ago. hmm

    I always wonder if a week or two will pop up that is hundreds less than normal. That has happened before, same as weeks with hundreds more than normal.

    Do you self-employed types that work at home on the net still have a little worry week to week what your pay will be? sad

      We have TERRIBLE weeks where we exhaust all our overdraft facility on every account - you just have to do what I tell my staff to do - HOLD YOUR NERVE.  If you're doing it right it WILL come in but money in and money out rarely synchronise correctly!

      I am no veteran myself, but yes I do worry.There are so many variables involved its just insane!

      Today, I am wondering if I am going to hit payout or not. About 1.50 short, I should make it though.

      I would like to get to the point where I am making 20-40$/daily passively. I can only imagine people who are making more that their amounts are thrown all over the place.

    Well it's nice to see, so to speak, that I'm not the only one that worries from time to time. smile

    I get income from over two dozen ad sites, affiliate sites, ad spot sales, sponsors and so on. Lots of times I get checks in the mail I don't even know who they are from!

    So it's a bit complex keeping track of it all. I still have one main sponsor that gives me a big chunk of my weekly income.

    I'm trying to change that so I don't rely on them as much. The niche they represent is going to get worst soon IMO so I better change course.

    Best bet is to have many sponsors and ad sites you get income from. That way if one or even three die overnight your still alright. smile

    No not really. I'm not a worrier in general though so that probably helps. I have an idea of what's coming, a definite idea of what's going out so as long as I hit a 'minimum' level (which I do) we manage.

    And here there's only me actually bring anything in (circumstances) but that will change soon so I figure that in a couple of months I'll be typing a little drunk cos I'll be back quaffing me some good vinho verde smile

    I've just filed my tax return online, and I had to laugh at how little I earned 2009-10 - don't suppose my bank manager's laughing much though! smile
