One reason why most people hardly make any money online is because they don't have a plan. To them it's nothing more than a hobby but it ends up costing them a lot of time and the money earned at the end of the month isn't much. While making money online does provide some sort of freedom and the flexibility to choose whatever it is you like, to make decent money online you'd have to create a plan which in the long term will get you the financial freedom you seek. Yeah do some online work, write articles, complete microtasks, surveys, etc but set aside some time to work on something an online business that will make you a lot more money after some time. Even if it's an hour you can spare each day, after a few years, your hard work will most likely start paying off.
