Make money online. What they don't tell you.

This hub has been written for aspiring internet marketers unaware of the dangers of succeeding online and living in pyjamas.

"Make money online". "Work from home and leave your day job" "Sack your boss" "Get rich quick"!

That's the easy part!

What they don't tell you about making money online is how hard it is to get out of your pyjamas and how much more thought you have to put into the jim-jams you'll be wearing day in and day out.

Too often emphasizing automatic money "while you sleep" in your pyjamas, the cars and rubbing in the sore and sorry fact of "your day job" and "your boss" internet marketers are not telling you what you should know: your pyjamas are going to be "working a lot harder"!

Getting your pjs wrong - why don't they tell you this? - will end up making you look pretty silly as the time you spend in jimjams invariably expands beyond your control as you become more and more financially successful online!

So, aspiring internet marketers, you better  start paying more attention to your work from home business suit or the money making fun is going to end in tears!

There's more (sorry)...

As you get more and more accustomed to wandering around in your pyjamas the day will come when you will inevitably forget to change out of your pyjamas altogether (and don't think it wont happen to you).

Wandering around in private is all and well; for example, around your palatial mansion or going out to the driveway to get something out of your car - like a forgotten phone or Rolex out of the porsche or Rolls - fleeting glimpses only. But what nobody tells you is that one day you will find yourself wandering around in full public view - exposed as a successful online marketer,

The addictive habit and the problem of getting out of your pyjamas is where the real difficulties and real dangers lie for those unwary and unprepared who succeed online.

Once hooked to wearing pyjamas all day, the hard part will be getting back to putting on your normal attire.

Changing out of your pyjamas will be one of the greatest challenges you will face as a successful internet marketer YOU will inevitably find yourself shopping for pyjamas more and more and for real clothes less and less. In extreme cases your wardrobe will become TOTALLY outdated and pyjamas will be the only choice you will have for the day.

Thankfully, there is help. A twelve step program for pyjamaholics. It begins by simply accepting the fact: I'm a pyjamaholic! And never ever ever give up. As you can see from the pics YOUR NOT ALONE!

This is one of the best ways to get around because when people see you and want to know how you made your riches on the internet you can get away faster when you realize you're still in your pjs.

Sometimes it's nice to indulge in pyjamas from an era before computers. However, if a friend happens to visit you unexpectedly...Uh Oh! It could be a little embarrassing. Don't worry the "what the hell are you looking at" stare works wonders.

This internet entrepreneur has made so much money online that he was able to turn himself into a banana - a very costly medical procedure beyond the means of most of us but one which effectively guarantees an uninterrupted love life.

      Far out, Lara - 2 years and 300k - you are exceptional. I suppose you don't get out of your pyjamas much then?

      Makes perfect sense to me! I've had my Facebook page up for more than 2 years and it's going to hit 300K very soon, I love writing there, not a day goes by without checking it and spending hours reading people's positive feedback.. It's pretty addictive, I can only imagine how making your living off the internet would be like.

      Yes the habit of getting out of your pjs is important when you get up Joan - I agree - as for not having made your fortune yet - I imagine you could make money out of wearing only your PJs - it brings instant attraction and money especially to women! Please send a photo of yourself in just PJs as I'm a Pjama fashion agent. LOL!

      I can't stand being in my pjs after I get up. Maybe that's why I haven't made my fortune yet. :)

      Cheers Go-Barbara-Go I'm so happy when I get a laugh out of people - especially intelligent ones like yourself! Glad I found you on HP. I can relate to your not wanting to do the stay at home thing - getting out in the real world is much more FUN, eh?

    • go-barbara-go profile image

      go-barbara-go 4 years ago

      Lol! I love this....

      Yeah that's a lot of humor out there, but really true. That's the reason why I mixed working at home with working 6 hours part-time in a corporate office, even If I could do it all at home. I just don't want to give away my corporate attires and buy more lounging attires. (I don't like pyjamas, much more if Id wear it driving my bicycle. lol!)

      Thanks @Alcosin - I better prevent my imagination from detailing all the alternatives to pyjamas that you might be wearing or not as you read this.

      @TKI - exactly - why get out of them - unless you want a bubble bath!

      LOL, I'm afraid pajamas would be considered formalwear for most of the days I spend working at home. Modesty prevents me from detailing what I actually wear. Voting this Up and Funny.

      Why get out of your pajamas? You only have to get back into them at night.

      Thanks for dropping by expectus. My guess is that the world record for wearing pjs may actually be more than 10 hours (8am-6pm) but you've inspired me to Google this!

      hehe is this the hub you meant psychicdog.net? :P its not what I expected in a good way :) and its true I find it extremely difficult to get out of my pajamas some days and the longest I have gone in pj's is from 8am to 6pm :P I changed for dinner. Nice Hub

      Springboard thanks for dropping in and being so honest. 11.23am isn't a bad effort...but keep trying, the day will come when you wont have to change out of your PJS for a whole day. When that happens please come back and check out the pyjamaholic range here because I might have an affiliate program for PJ resellers by then.

      lol. It's 11:23 AM, I've been up since 7 AM this morning, and I'm still in my pajamas reading this. On that note, time to go and take a shower and put on my real clothes. Doh!

      Hello agvulpes, it's not a good idea to keep the cents in your PJS though because you wake up in the morning with coins stuck to your skin which fall off and leave impressions of Australian wildlife and the Queen of England.

      G'day phsyhicdog.net. (I thought that was phsycodog for a minute) Here I am sitting here in my PJ's writing this comment and about to go and see how many 1cent clicks I had earned on 'nocents' and I found this Hub. Very funny and from an Aussie as well!

      A very clever photo too James which shows a growing fashion trend among internet marketers - pyjamas that look just like a shirt and tie. Very clever disguise and a snappy look. No-one would ever guess and keeps you out of trouble when you forget to take them off and go out your front door and down the street in public! Keep up the good work.

      Yes Nicomp. I'm hoping to sell some pyjamas to some pyjamaholics - the proceeds will go to a good cause. My bank account!
