Earn Money Working Home, Coffee Shop or Beach Based

You know the opening scene of Raiders of The Lost Ark? The one with all the booby traps, blow darts and the mother of all boulders? Well, learning how to earn money working home based is like that! Of course once you know how to earn money working home based, you can earn money with your laptop or smartphone anywhere in the world. Earn money working home

But first you need to recognise and avoid the booby traps that ensnare so many people and make them give up their dream of the 4-hour work week and saying goodbye daily grind.

There are 4 main boobytraps that you risk getting skewered by…

  1. Scams
  2. Expensive Guru Upsells
  3. Dangerously Outdated Information & Training
  4. A Lack of Support and Community

I cover exactly how to avoid Scams and Expensive Gurus Upsells in my List Online Scams How to earn money online for a post, but, unfortunately, outdated information and training is notoriously hard to spot.

The only way to avoid wasting money and getting taken down dead ends by bad information, is by getting your information from sources that are being consistently and clearly updated by people who are actively involved in earning a passive income online.

If you are fortunate enough to avoid all the Scams and Expensive “Guru” Upsells, as well as to find an up to date source of information and training, then you face the mother of all booby traps, the great boulder of death itself… a lack of support and community.

Earn Money Working Home Based

Let’s face it, it’s virtually impossible to learn a new skill, without expert help.

Know anyone who learned to drive without a driving instructor?

It’s also extremely difficult to stick to any process of change without an accountability buddy, to make sure you continue to do, what you say you need to do, to get to where you say you want to go. (It’s why Alcoholics Anonymous and Weightwatchers and personal training work when nothing else does).

If you doubt this, count up how many New Years resolutions you’ve kept, without employing a personal trainer or coach.

It’s no different when learning how to earn money working home, coffee shop or beach based.

The Everyman Test

I know this all too well because 3 years ago I was a complete beginner and I fell into all of these traps…more than once, I’m embarrassed to say.How to earn money online for a

It’s cost me thousands of pounds and hundreds of hours to get to the point where I’m confident I know exactly what I’m doing and that’s borne out in the fact that I’m now earning a consistent passive income.

It’s no exaggeration to say that I can count on the fingers of one finger, the number websites that pass the everyman test with flying colours. What’s the everyman test?

  • Is it a legit opportunity, not a scam or exaggeration?
  • Are there any expensive guru upsells hidden on the back end?
  • Is the information and training up-to-date and comprehensive?
  • Does it offer live support from both a community of peers and the site owners?

In other words for a site to pass the everyman test it must be able to show you how to earn money working home based in a smart, safe, scam free and supported way.

In the last 3 years, I’ve used untold numbers of sites and platforms and systems and I’ve tried everything I can think of to generate a passive income online including…

  1. Euromillions Binary Options Trading Platform
  2. Clickbank
  3. Creating my own products
  4. Guest Posting
  5. MLM/Network Marketing
  6. Paid Survey’s
  7. Swagbucks
  8. Online Payday System
  9. Evergreen Wealth Formula
  10. John Chow
  11. M.O.B.E.
  12. Six Figure Mentors
  13. Ryan Eliason’s S.E.E.N.
  14. Ryan Deiss’s Authority ROI
  15. 3xsellerator
  16. Digital Marketing Lab
  17. Perry Marshall
  18. ZNZ Free Offers 
  19. Warrior Forum

Over the coming months, I’ll be reviewing the above products and platforms in detail, which will hopefully save you both time and money as you learn from and avoid my mistakes.

Of all the products and platforms I’ve used over the years, there is literally only one that passes the everyman test and I would, therefore, feel 100% comfortable and confident recommending to you (which is a sad indictment on the unscrupulous nature of the “make money online” industry as a whole).

Check out my comprehensive Review of Wealthy Affiliate, which is by some distance my #1 Recommendation for…

  1. Hi Doxy.  I am so glad that I took the time to read your review.  It is obvious that this is not your first rodeo. You've written this review in a very original manner.  Your introduction content flows effortlessly into the body of the content.  Be prepared, your writing style my likely be copied.  All in all good job.


  2. You are absolutely correct about accountability.  It's so easy to forget it's importance!  You can be ambitious as hell, and not have ADD and still get knocked off track, it's human nature.  I know I have.  Your chances of success are greatly increased when you have accountability and it sounds like that is something that WA offers.

    1. So true Brandi.

      Our culture worships the “Individual” so much that we forget how dependent we are on each other…until we try to make a major change in our lives!

      That’s when we realise that we need the support, encouragement and experience of others way more than we imagined.

  3. Review for your WA review page:

    Looks good. I can especially relate to the expensive upsells. You find these a lot in stock/option trading strategies.

    One small point: I think you should have "pros" in one heading and "cons" in another heading. As I was scanning through the page, I went from pros to cons without realizing it. I said to myself: This sounds negative, and then I read "cons".

    As you probably know, most internet users scan through a page instead of reading every word.

    Lastly, I think you should consider website design…it's definitely not plain vanilla like mine! I haven't the time or inclination to do this; I'd rather write articles that will help other golfers like me.

    Hope this helps.


    1. It does help yes thanks John.

      I’ve made the changes to the “pros” and “cons”, you were righ they were a bit confusing.

      I’ve also changed the design somewhat.

      What do you think?

  4. Very good review on Wealthy Affiliate, it is a good place to start building an online business, the training is very current and it does work, however it does take time and patience to build just as it does with most businesses.. If you want to invest in your future this is the way to go.

  5. It is so true that there are a lot of scams out there, and anyone looking to make money online has a high risk of spending their money on something that really doesn't deliver on what it promises. With Wealthy Affiliate, it is a genuinely great step-by-step training course, and of course the community is excellent too.

    1. Absolutely Janelle.

      I’d go as far as to call it invaluable, because in my experience the number 1 reason people stay stuck on the hamster wheel is fear.

      And having a huge supportive community like WA around you, really really helps with the fear.

  6. really informative post, gives you all the basics of wealthy affiliate and the cons to it as well, something I experiensed myself the first time I joined.

    Thanks or sharing this.


    1. Hi Allan.

      Thanks for the helpful feedback. I have used some more large headings and changed the format slightly to make it easier to read. 

      What do you think?

  7. Hi Chris, like your other blog, I can only say you've made every reason for others to sign up and be blessed.  Thank you for your well thought out reasoning.  So this will spur others to be start getting their act together.

    God bless…


  8. One last comment: I graduated college well before the internet age. Starting my own business was not even considered. I knew of very few people that even thought about it. Also, very few people that I knew of had any sort of "in" or connections that they could take advantage of. I ended working briefly in retail(finding out very quickly that retail was not for me) and then starting perusing want ads.

    It just didn't seem right to me that someone with a college degree should struggle to find a job in their field of interest. I suppose this happens to a lot of us.


  9. Hi Doxy:

    I think I've commented on this page before, but had to chuckle at those typical interview questions, especially "Why do you want to work for our company?". Back when I graduated college(1982), the economy was in bad shape and jobs were very hard to find. The lumber industry up where I went to school was on its way out…too bad, that would have been good work since they always paid well. I ended up with a clerical position that did not need a college degree. It's hell to be under-employed; I've only had two jobs where I felt I was using what I had learned in college(both programming jobs).

    I was a programmer for over 20 years, only quitting once we moved to Arizona. I had enough money saved by then to start trading stocks for a living and I've been doing that ever since(eight years).

    Everyone would enjoy working for themselves as you are not going to make a lot of money working for other people unless you are a doctor. You might make a good salary as a lawyer or accountant, depending on where you work. Also, if you are a good salesperson, you might do well with any company since you get paid(at least partially) on commission.


  10. Hello Chris, it is a shame there are so much people on this earth who dislike their jobs, when is is so easy to escape that situation, I also read your "Escape your 9 to 5 life". You made it very easy to take action, well explained how to stop the rut, I hope people will recognize this tremendous oppertunity. Success with reaching out to all those who need this escape, Loes

  11. Wow so many moments of truth e.g

    "So since 1952 thousands of new drugs have been devloped which help people to manage the symptoms of their disease without actually curing the diease.

    Was just one example of great information, you write so well I cant believe you were once homeless – Great post

    1. Thanks Peter.

      Lots more to say of Big Pharma and the Banks in future posts, so stay tuned for that.

      Although I was in the park for 7 months, I was technically homeless for 4 years because I lived in various squats with a assorted menagerie of activist, artists and assholes – i played all three parts at one time or another lol 😉

      But not only do I not regret that time, I'm hugely grateful for it. 

      It made me who I am and brought me to where I am today.
      And I absolutely love being here 😉

  12. I am fortunate enough to have parents that told me the truth about making money. You really don't need to go to college to get a good job, I know people with degrees that are delivering pizza or working at fast food restaurants. My parents always gave me the option of going to college or starting my own business that I will be passionate about. I choose to be my own boss.

    1. Good for you Jazmin.

      Hopefully with each passing generation more people will have parents like yours and so fewer people will fall for the "got to get a degree to get a good job" myth.

      The reason they call it the American Dream is because you have to be asleep to believe it;)

  13. I too thought getting a job after graduation would solve all my problems, nope, reality kicks in when you have a family, and quietly you hope you will get that pay raise and it never comes, expenses build up and you are still on the same salary… really does suck  , hope this making money on the internet will work out and one day I can say goodbye to my 8-5 job :)

    1. Hi Thomas

      I feel ya bro, I really feel ya!

      Been there. And as you say, it is especially painful and difficult when you have a family to take care of.

      WA is the real deal though, so please give it your time and attention, because if you do "this making money on the internet" thing will Definitly work out for you, just like it did for me and thousands of others.

      I look forward to raising a glass with you on the day you say goodbye to your 8-5 (that extra hour sucks man!;)

  14. Chris, nice article and I enjoyed readin it.  I totally agree with Wealthy Affilites being no scam and a great way to learn now to make passive income online.  Shirley

  15. Hi Chris.  This is a lively, entertaining article for anyone who wish to make money online and be the boss.  Having a passion for something is the way to go because then it won't feel like a job.  Thanks.

    1. Hi Brian.

      Unfortunately it’s not just Americans who feel that way. That particular conditioned myth is a worldwide affliction.

      Fortunately the internet is just as worldwide and there are loads of us working hard to disabuse people of that disempowering belief

      and inspiring them to live life on their own terms. BOOM! 😉 

    1. I'll tell you what I think…I think that if I wasn't already signed up to this excellent program, I'd sign with you on the spot. The way you've used your own background to explain the salary trap is loaded with insight ad sincerity. Your personality is irresistable and I predict great things for you. And as an added bonus, you share my attitude towards Big Pharma and have expressed the sorry business behind their actions in a very articulate and engaging manner. That makes you a smart guy…and I'd urge anyone who reads you page to follow your lead.

      1. You have a way of making me blush Melinda and as a black guy that's not easy to do…or see! 😉

        I could say a lot more about Big Pharma and will do in future blog posts (I'm sure you know what I mean) but yes 12 years in recruitment left me with no illusions that it was the people who paid the bills (employers) that recruiters/job sites are really working for…and the employees get spun a tall tale for the sole purpose of keeping them on the Hamster Wheel.

        Very sad. But with people like WA out there there's a massive opportunity for people to hop off the Hamster wheel and ditch the daily grind…and that make s me very happy 😉
