    Hello all, for the past year I've been reading these forums and other various websites on how to make money online. Between work and school it's been hard to get anything going but I managed to make my first 15 dollars online through clickbank. This has given me hope to what I can accomplish in the future. I'm now willing to take the plunge and invest a fair amount of my time to making money online by quitting my job. For quite some time now I've always wanted to do this and even saved enough money to pay for my next two semesters at (community) college as a safety net. My goals as of right now are to be profiting at least $20/week by the end of the year and to gain a better understanding of the different methods of making money online. I'm well aware that it will take hard work to accomplish my goals but I am self-motivated and willing to do whatever it takes. If anyone has some wisdom on where to start or has any advice for me it would be much appreciated.

    Thank you in advance, Mattsowski

    Keep the job, just use some time management.

    A job is always a good safety net just incase things go tits up online.

    You're just quitting your job and not college. I think you're gonna be alright. Good luck with your journey!

    $20 per week, it shows you have not been reading the forum very well.

    You can make more than that.

    It looks like your school fees isn't expensive at all.

    If you join fiverr you only need to make 5 sales in a week to make $20.

    I think that's the only free place to start making money if you join some exchange groups.

    Other business model requires some level of investment to make any meaningful headway.

    You really need to reconsider your options.

    Making 5 sales a week and delivering it via fiverr can't stop your job except if you don't like it.

    Good luck..

    Good luck dude. Although I would suggest not quitting until you're sure you can set higher goals for yourself. You should be aiming for $20/hour rather. Why not keep your job and save your money, until you can invest it in something big?

    To clarify, I'm not quitting my job solely on the fact that it'll give me more free time. I absolutely hate my job and believe it's time for me to move on. I realize that $20/week is not a huge goal but I do have much larger aspirations. I just think that $20/week is a good starting goal for someone who basically has no experience. Thank you for the advice so far guys!
