Learn how to make money online.
Tax Season is coming up and I am preparing for it. Please note: This money making article is not so that I can brag or show off. Many of you reading this makes way more money than I do working your 9-5 job. I am writing this article to show you exactly how hard it is to make money online. However, making money online can be done and you can see how by reading this article. This last year, I told myself that I was going to work full time from home. That was after I lost my last care-giving client from Parkinson's disease. Back in 2007, I started making websites for myself and others just for fun. Fortunately now it has turned into a full time online business that I just love. Don't get me wrong, I have taken Computer Courses and several online trainings to get where I am now. I also do other freelance jobs on the Internet such as blogging and publishing helpful articles. I will go into detail on how I make money below.
