What are you waiting for? Haven't you realized that the future is in the internet arena whether is be online marketing or simply working for companies that are based and hire online employees. If you don't do it now you may always regret it because sooner or later you will be force to make the switch but you won't be in the driver's seat any longer.
So what are the advantages to having the ability to make money online? Well there are several. For one there is increased ability to automate and therefore be working even while, you are sleeping. You also don't have to work in the typical and uncomfortable work environment. You can work when you want and this includes more flexibility to take that needed vacation whenever. You can work where you want--at home, at the library, in the coffee shop, at your cottage, or on your Caribbean cruise. You can also wear what you want, I prefer sweat pants and a T-shirt you might like your bath robe.
Other huge advantages to a "make money online" type of job are that you don't have to worry about product whether is be storage, distribution, tech support, you name it. You are most often earning commissions for selling other people's products. You also aren't limited by geography in your market. You can sell to people in Indonesia just as easily (other than maybe language barrier) as to your neighbor. The internet allows you more potential diversity of income than your typical jobe does as well. If one source of income dries up you will typically have 2 or 3 or 4 other sources to fallback on while you repair or replace the first.
So this sounds good right? So what are you waiting for? Oh...you think that the initial risk of quitting your job to make money online is too high? Well then don't quit your job! You can easily maintain both a normal job and an internet income at the same time and you will find very soon that you have nothing to fear. What about startup costs? Well depending on how you start some (data entry, surveys, etc.) have very little assuming you already have a decent computer and connection to the internet. Other cheap options include ebay and other online auction sites. So please don't wait, now is your chance to beat the mad rush and at the pace that makes you comfortable.
