Wow, online jobs have many pros, but of course it will also have some cons:
First one, and also my strong warning before you put a step into online business: you ALWAYS have to be careful about new services or ones with so attractive promises, to avoid being a victim of fraud/scam, which is very popular in the Internet. The advice is that you need to research about the service/program BEFORE joining it, and only joining the ones that receive the positive feedback from other users. Never send the money first only because “the program is so hot, and it will end soon, so I need to be quick, bla bla..”
Most types of online jobs need you to be patience, including the most simple tasks such as data entry. You can’t hope to be millionaire after a night. This is a reason every single day, there are so many people jumping in online business, but real successful people are very rare. Therefore, the most important tip here is that you need to be patience, try many methods until finding your own successful formula.
