I started making money online when I was 17-years-old. No, that's not a typo. That's the God's honest truth.
Since the age of 17, I've been earning money by utilizing the power of the Internet. By the time I was 18, I was earning a steady income online. Four years later, at the age of 22, I had the potential to earn thousands of dollars per month in the comfort of my home, by tapping away on the keyboard. Today, I am six months shy of thirty and still going strong as a writer.
The fact that I started earning money online before I was legally an adult is apparently hard to believe for some. People constantly assume that I exaggerate my earning potential, while others believe that I must have a college degree and years of publishing experience. While those two things certainly increase one's chances of success, they're unnecessary.
As I've mentioned previously, when I first got started in the freelance writing industry, I had no degree, no expertise, no contacts, and no resume. My first writing positions were very low paying (think $1 per 100 words) but I moved on to better opportunities as I went along. I slowly established myself by creating unique, quality content, and eventually was able to define my worth as a writer and therefore, increase my earnings.
Uninformed readers are ninja-quick to dismiss my blog as a scam. That couldn't be further from the truth.
