Make Money From My Computer? But I Can’t Find The Money Slot!
Way back when, when I was considering how to make money from my computer, it occurred to me that if I was really serious about quitting my full time job and earning a living from home, what I wanted most, was the most simple, direct and fastest way to start earning.
To make money from my computer, what I wanted most, was for it to be simple. Notice, I do not say I wanted it to be easy. I expected to have to work. I wanted to work. I know there is no such thing as a free lunch, I certainly knew that if it was just too easy, it would feel like stealing or some sort of flash in the pan type of money which essentially I knew would be unsustainable.
I wanted a career. I just wanted it from home and in my own time. I also wanted to keep all the profits that my work was responsible for and not receive a few bucks an hour while my boss kept the rest.
So, having those criteria set aside, I knew or at least I had a fair idea what I was looking for. I knew to make money from my computer, I would need to be running a business. To run a business, I would need some sort of product or service and a way to get paid. That made sense then and it makes sense now, all businesses have a product or service of some sort and logically, if you want to make money, you need to be running a business.
The next problem was that I didn’t have a product. I didn’t really have anything to offer personally. But I did discover the affiliate model, selling other peoples products and receiving a commission is very easy and I couldn’t see myself making a living any other way.
