Many people dream of being able to work at home. The thought of getting to sleep in every day and working from your laptop in bed is certainly quite appealing. Of course, in the real world it isn't that easy... otherwise everyone would be doing it. This doesn't mean however that working at home has to remain only a dream. In fact, every year more and more people around the world are utilizing the power of the internet to make a full time income from the comfort of their own homes.
While the success stories of working at home often sound quite incredible, they do exist. Of course, you must consider that for every one person who is successful, there are often hundreds, perhaps even thousands who do not fare so well. The number one mistake is thinking that working online is some ticket to almost instant fortune. The reality is that unless you found the next Facebook or Google that isn't going to happen. Many people also have the predisposition to believe that working online is as easy as pushing a button, going to bed, and waking up the next morning to find fresh money in your account. While this may be possible after years of careful building of your assets, it just doesn't occur nearly as fast as people think.
When it comes to making legitimate money online, there are actually only a few places to turn. One of the most popular for a while now is the AdSense platform by Google, however, in order to make any serious cash from this system, you need a website with traffic which many people do not have the luxury of owning. Instead, I would recommend starting by submitting links to search engines. This way is not glamorous nor is it that enjoyable, however, it opens the door to other methods. Like I did, you can use the money that's coming in from this method to fund larger and larger projects until you really can go to bed and wake up the next morning with more money in your bank account.
