I have tried many work from home opportunities over the past few years. As a student, I did work online for fun and for extra cash to supplement student loans. Now that I have graduated, I use the money to supplement my income. I currently make about $500/month from my online work.
I hope that you can learn from my experiences to pick the best online work opportunities and to avoid the time wasters and scams.
