Many people who are involved with some system or course to earn money online think it’s an easy way to generate income and a gold mine to get rich. Of course, it doesn’t take them long to realize that they will really have to work, which discourages most people before they have even done enough.
So the question is … How long does it take to earn money online?

So, this is where your initial investment of time or money will be needed to earn money online.
