So all money generating programs require some kind of serious investment either in the form of money or time.
5) Only Few Are Scams
We all come across various articles and posts on the internet which tells us about different money making programs that have turned out to be major scams. On the other hand there are also articles about legitimate online money making programs that send a positive influx into the minds of users.

But the real truth is that majority of the online money making methods are scam, where as only a few selected of them are legitimate to work upon.
6) It is Tension Free
Who doesn’t love to be engaged in a work that does not offer any tension at all? We all do, right? A tension free atmosphere is something that draws a lot of people into online money making activities, as they might be very much stressed with their regular jobs. But they are indeed in the shade of another myth that online money making is stress free. Actually it offers more tension than your regular jobs, as you always need to be on your toe to generate income for your earning. If the income decreases, you will become more stress to find out the solution. But in your office jobs, even if there is less work on certain days, you will not need to worry as you will be getting the salary at the end of the month.
7) You Can Relax a Lot
Internet money making activities are always seen as a perfect thing to do and a great place to relax. Since you are the only one responsible for your earnings, you will not get any time to relax, as you will always be in the search of various things that can fetch you money and make your life comfortable. So the term “relaxing” is something that is forbidden in the online money making scenario and once you start relaxing, your earnings also goes down.
8) You Need to Have a Blog or Website
Those who wish to make money online follows a major myth that they need to have a blog or website to start earning online and they see this fact as a major barrier between them and their desire to earn money online. The real truth is that you need not need to run or own a blog or website and there are various other legitimate platforms that allow you to earn decent money on the internet without having any blog or website.
