    Default Making money online ?

    I finally clicked on one of those ads that told me how easy it is to make money online and of course they wanted "$99 for a kit" and I understood how the author made money .
    But my wife has been in New Zealand a few months now , she has a work permit and has been looking at jobs in healthcare since she worked for the department of opthalmology at Waterloo university for 20 years - but "we" decided to turn down a few job offers that involved shifts since it would mean either having her wake up early in the morning [ and disturb me ] or come home later in the evening - when we've both been alone long enough and would rather spend the time together.
    I don't desperately need her to be working but of course she wants to contribute and have a sense of purpose.
    So I'm wondering , for someone who has the luxury of being able to choose what they do without being in a huge hurry to be making enough to support themselves right away - is there a viable option for making money online ?

    Heaps of people make money on the internet. Heaps more don't.

    All of the crap that comes up when you type "make money online" into google, is crap.

    Make a website/blog/youtube vid, get lots of traffic, work out some advertising deals.

    Any work in Waikato hospital? Opthalmology really isn't one of those departments that relies on shift work, especially if it is outpatients.

    There is quite a bit of stuff that she can't find in NZ that may be worth importing - the trouble is finding a good supplier and getting through all the legal aspects of importing [?]

    She was offered a job at Braemar hospital , but that was the shift work.

    I've been trying to sell my own unique style of home made porn starring me for years. Only taker so far has been RJD's wife, and the cheque bounced.

    She would love that I'm sure - except she would drink it all because that's what she misses most about Canada

    If Tim Hortons (whatever they are, sound dangerously naughty) are that good then do it.

    After her dress arrived and she saw a cut in the packaging she got a bit stressed about the idea of worrying about each delivery

    That is part and parcel of the importing business - you can make sure you have adequate insurance in place to cover damaged stock or keep overheads low with no insurance and have the stress.

    Starbucks doesn't even come close. The only bad thing about Tim Horton's is the lack of one in NZ.
