    So, I will keep this brief and to the point; I am relatively new (yes I am a noob) to the concepts of making money online and as I have a baby girl on the way, and hate my career (do well though), I have chosen the internet as a way to build my empire (partially tongue in cheek), and use it as a springboard for paying for law school. Before everyone jumps all over me, I am NOT asking how do I make money. I know how to use a search button (this site is amazing with all of the posts and guides). Aside from the fact the learning curve is VERY STEEP with online money making strategies, I am willing to put the time and effort into learning (have been teaching myself xhtml, css etc. so that I have a good foundation). What I am curious about are two things; what is considered a decent "monthly" return after many months of trial and error? 500 dollars, 2k, 5k etc? How long did it take most of you to learn your ABC's and translate it into a decent steady income?

    how much you make is just a matter of how fast you learn. after several months, some people make pennies, some people make thousands. no one can really tell you how much you'll make, but since you stated that you know how to use the search button, i'd say that puts you in the top 50 percentile already. :)

    I would say 6 months easy to start earning something decent, maybe $500 per month. The trick is to build something stable so you don't have to invent the wheel again when it dies.

    love the responses, thank you! im like a sponge trying to soak up the ocean sometimes lol. The reason I have gravitated towards the internet is because of the limitless opportunities. lets face it; if i opened up a retail store i would have a ton of overhead (payroll, taxes on payroll, benies for employees etc, rent etc). I am not looking for a get rich quick scheme, rather, looking for a way to "multiply" my earnings on a few niche areas through hard work and perserverance. What do you guys think is a good area to start in just to get my feet wet so that i have a better understanding when I really start to market my ideas....in other words, i want to know where the batting cage is to practice for the big game.....im not trying to write ebooks (not knocking anyone who does at all) but rather supplying solutions to the marketplace that people are concentrating on.....
