No, I am not wealthy because of the internet or else I wouldn't have joined hubpages to make some money off Google Adsense. (I haven't earned a cent by the way, but enjoy Hubpages anyway). However, I can honestly say that the internet may not be providing me with a 6 figure salary, but I I earn a little less yearly than what I used to earn during my better years in banking, but without the expenses of commuting and having to dress up.
Most folks think of the internet as opening a business online, and which I have done, but one can also work for high earning website owners and earn an income, and this is where my partner and I are doing well with. Maybe I will write a hub about this.
Pretty interesting stuff. Keeping it in mind and wishing you both more success! Who else?
1.5...most of the money i make now is because of the internet, but I don't consider myself wealthy.
only hard core internet marketers get wealthy off the internet. you have to have a very unique website that offers value that people can get very few places. if you have these two things, you can and will get rich off the internet.
I guess it depends how you define wealthy.
If you have money coming in while you sleep, you're wealthier than if you don't.
If you earn $4,000 an hour, you might have a lot of cash, but you're not really wealthy.
If you earn $2,000 a month, but it happens whether you get out of bed or not, and rent plus food plus medical is $1,800 a month, then you are wealthy, I'd say. Wealthier than the guy who has to get up each morning and strap on his power suit.
Are you saying you've achieved that? I know only a few people who have, and they worked their butts off - harder and longer than a full-time job - for a couple of years to get to that point.
The get-rich-quick gurus like to imply it's easy, but I've yet to see any evidence of it.
This is a good thread which pretty much says it all. It's worth reading all the way through!
I truly believe the internet can make a decent amount of money.
Not at this moment in time but that could change later.
It would depend on what you mean by wealthy.
Marisa, anyone who has established any kind of business has worked their butts off for a few years.
The question is whether or not someone is "wealthy" after doing so.
I would say that if you have an income that doesn't require any time to earn, and it exceeds your basic living expenses, then you are wealthy. Even if that income is only $200 per month.
Sadly, my living expenses exceed $1800 per month, and I do not choose to reduce my lifestyle, so I am not yet wealthy by that definition. I still need to do a certain amount of "hours for dollars" work.
My fault entirely - some bad financial decisions (or rather, bad choices of financial partners) earlier in my life.
However, my internet income means that I don't have to strap on a power suit and do a 40 hour - or more - corporate week. And if I were to move to Fiji or Barbados I could live on it quite comfortably without trading time for money to top it up.
But I want to keep living in one of the more expensive parts of the world. I have a thing about first-world health care ...
... so I can't call myself "wealthy".

Are you ever able to stay off the Internet for even just one whole day?This question came to me after another hubber answered another question about being on-line each and every day and how hard it is to not get on-line, even for one day. Do you find it very difficult to not be on-line for...

Bummer! Twice in a row I was kicked off the Internet by a Flash Player problem with Hubpages. Same thing happened a couple of days ago. Is this related to ads wanting to play or is it something else?

Since Google AdSense hasn't approved me, my hubs aren't earning anything from anywhere. I've been told that ads show up on my page but that they belong to hubpages and I won't get paid for those. I guess hubpages is earning money off my hubs but I am not. Is this the case? I have other hubs I would...
