Can you make a living on Online?

YES you can.
Squidoo is a "Lynchpin" in my overall online income

Here are the key points about earning on Squidoo and any other social network.

1. Write about what you love to do sounds like a no brainer but many people go for profit over passion.
2. Find a Non-Profit in the topics you dig doing. Help them. Network with them. Learn from them. Why not help others in your niche, I can tell you helping a Non-Profit means exactly that no profit, these people are doing it because they love it.

3. Take the knowledge learned helping people using the CTWU tools and create other websites based around the tools on CTWU and OR other subjects you would do because you love doing them. Check out Change the WOrld U.

How to Avoid the Biggest Mistake New People
Make Trying To Earn An Income Online.

What is the most common mistake people make when trying to earn an income online?

In one word it could be called greed.

In other words, people look at earning Big Dollars by selling the latest and greatest get rich product instead of looking inside themselves and asking what they really love to do for fun or as a hobby.

Many people start off by selling products they know nothing about and have no interest in. In a high percentage of cases, people try to sell Internet Marketing and Social Media products even though they have no practical experience or knowledge of the many different skill sets involved.

What usually happens is: After 90-120 days, people see no money, become discouraged and give up. This situation is even worse when the person has already invested money into products or training. Also, let us not forget about family and friends who are seeing that person go through the disappointment. This can add stress to relationships and cause you to give up at the very beginning of the your hoped-for financial independence.

How to avoid this pitfall?

#1: Start your first series of websites about a subject or subjects you are PASSIONATE about. Ask yourself this question: If you had enough money to do anything you wanted what would that thing be?

#2: Your first series of websites should be about a subject, or subjects, which you LOVE. It is much more enjoyable to create content such as an article, Podcast or Video about a subject you know about and enjoy learning more about. Do you really want to create a work from home income that becomes just another JOB?

#3: Take a day and just DREAM. Imagine that you have enough money so that you never have to work again. Then (this is VERY important) ask the people you love what they are passionate about. If there is a common interest, make sure to use that as one of your initial website topics.

If there is not a match, then look at this as an opportunity to learn more about the people you love. Here are some TOPIC IDEA SAMPLES to stimulate your thinking. These are also subject areas that the Change the World U Team is interested in and is developing websites about and thus will offer you expertise examples and support as you develop your own focus.

Sustainable Gardening
Advanced Technologies
Alternative Energy
Veterans Benefits
Muscle Cars
Non-Profit Internet Marketing

#4: While building your new sites you will also be learning about INTERNET MARKETING and SOCIAL MEDIA. This hands-on experience and practical knowledge will prepare you to launch another series of 1, 2 or 3 websites about your favorite online marketing tools. Some of the tools Change the World U uses are:

Article creation and syndication.
Blog World
YouTube Videos

#5: There are no “get rich overnight” online programs that work. What those companies are doing is preying on your emotions and your strong desire to believe that you can Get Rich Overnight. AVOID TEMPTATION! Do not fall into that temptation trap that makes others rich! Instead, BUILD AN INTERNET BUSINESS BASED ON WHAT YOU LOVE TO DO.
