“It’s too late to start making money online”

The topic came up because she was complaining about needing extra money to supplement her existing income. As you can imagine, I gave her a few tips on how to make some extra money on the Internet. I make a full-time living online as a writer and entrepreneur, I pointed her in the direction of selling online or freelancing. After all, she works as an office manager, she has plenty of useful skills and freelancing would probably be a breeze for her.

The market is saturated

Often people that throw shade on making money online are scared that the market is saturated. Too many people doing the same thing online, there is nothing unique anymore.

Lack of Knowledge

This is a major one, that fear of the unknown is understandable. Not wanting to step into a whole new realm due to a lack of knowledge. The easiest way to get over this fear is to put your head down and learn. It is easier said than done though, I have been earning an extra $3000-$5000 per month with one of my side hustles and I didn’t just learn on my own, I worked with a mentor, a coach that held my hand and guided me through the process.

Lack of time

Being time poor is another factor that prevents people from starting an online side hustle. The truth is most people waste time. There are plenty of extra hours in the day to get things done however, most often we waste away hours doing things like scrolling on social media, idle chit chat and watching television.

Fear of being scammed

One of my business mentors used to tell me that “scared money, makes no money.” Meaning that you have to take risks when it comes to building wealth, you can’t just sit around in fear hoping for the best, you got to work! There are plenty of scams out there but there are also plenty of legitimate businesses that you could start.
