Can I Really Make Money Online?

I’m stressed out!

Before I started this post I asked myself can I really make money online? All I really knew is that some folks are wildly successful what others, like me, were wasting their money.

I Tried and Failed


I dabbled in several online business. At first glance, they were a great idea, but lacked in several ways. I have 2 reasons I failed.

First, I did not do my research and homework. The attractive, glittery web page and offer drew me in, but I never checked reviews on those products. Second, I only wanted to know how I could make money online. I never realized the secret ingredient was helping others first, by guiding teaching them to have what they need in their lives.

I failed in my research because I read the “hype” and believed it but did not look deeper into the company and the training I needed to succeed.

I Found a Better Solution

One thing was certain, at 70 years old, I won’t be seeking a job. Those days are over and done. I’m also certain that I don’t want to spend hours and hours loafing and watching television. I searched online and found several sites like this on: The Penney Hoarder who also delve into solutions for seniors.
