1. Set goals
When embarking on any new adventure, especially one that includes your financial future, it is imperative that you set goals. These goals should include how many hours per week you are willing to spend, and how much money you need to earn. As you move along in your online working endeavor, reevaluate those goals, and even add some more if you want to.
It has been written several times over that “A goal not written is only a wish,” so write your goals so you can begin checking them off.
