Getting Started

There are so many excellent opportunities to learn about making money out there – the trouble is recognising them from the sheer rubbish and selfish band-wagon jumpers that also prowl the World Wide Web.

I urge you to read my “About Me” page and believe with all sincerity that Earning Through Learning is one of the good guys and is dedicated to pointing you in the direction in which you may wish to go.

I’m not here to warn you about scams/rip-offs/get-rich-quick schemes.  There are other places that do a great job doing that.  Nor am I going to give you a long list of bona fide types of money-making schemes.  That just makes the process of choosing what to do even more confusing and therefore becomes counter-productive for everyone.

These Are Businesses – Make No Mistake

What I am going to do is introduce you to a few simple learning tools that you can have a look at, weigh up and decide if that is a road you’d like to take.  Some of them are similar, others very different but what they all have in common is that they’re online businesses.  And don’t be mistaken about this, they’re not hobbies or play-things, they are businesses.  Businesses that you could emulate and from which you can earn an income.

YOU WILL however need determination and dedication to succeed in them.  YOU WILL want to learn how to be good at producing a good product.  YOU WILL need patience.  YOU WILL be ready to make mistakes and become better as a result.  YOU WILL allow yourself to be taught by those that know as well as those that are going through the same experiences as you will be.  YOU WILL want to offer your knowledge to those same people too and, even though you may not know it right now, you DO have knowledge which OTHERS WILL find valuable even if you doubt it yourself.

Doing It For Whom?

Perhaps the most important element of all this though is that YOU WILL WANT TO DO IT FOR YOURSELF.  You will want to succeed.  No one is going to do it for you.  No one can change you, only the environment in which you exist by giving support and teaching.  It is up to you to do it for you.

Effort and application will be required.   It’ll take months, maybe years to accomplish success.  It certainly won’t be easy but my goodness it will be enervating and you will become absorbed.

Enjoy the journey as much as, if not more than, the arrival.

It doesn’t matter that you weren’t good in school.  It doesn’t matter what type of job (if any now) you have.  What does matter is your desire and passion to do this thing well and to the best of your ability.  You will be given the tools to succeed, you just have to follow the instructions to understand how to use those tools.

Did You Say “Free!”?

And I did say “given”.  In most of the programs listed on this site the learning experience is free, with no catches, no credit card info to part with, no long-term commitment.  Sure, you’ll have the chance to buy into more advanced parts of the learning process but that will be up to you.  There’ll be no need to do so as you’ll learn how to be successful in the free sections of each of the relevant programs.  You’ll even be given two free websites in Wealthy Affiliate!

What I suggest is that you read each of the pages here on Earning Through Learning, consider the Posts and then look at what is on offer.  Test the waters, so to speak, before diving in.  But do be careful not to fall into the trap of spending weeks or months on one program then spending another few weeks or months on another before moving on to yet another etc.  That way lies madness!  Well, at least frustration as you won’t accomplish anything and you will become like the proverbial goldfish in the bowl, going round and round and round and round and …

My Educator Said What!?

And, at the risk of appearing snobbish, be careful to whom you trust your learning.  There are a lot of people trying to convince you (con you) into believing they hold the key to your future success – for a fee.  Question it.  I mean, would you really trust some of the “video educator” types when they project themselves along the lines of:



They’re probably decent people but you have to make a decision based on what you see and without someone reliable saying to you “trust that person” you should be asking yourself “do they really look right for me?”

Face value does make a big impression.  It shouldn’t but it does.  


The following guys however are a far cry from these and are fantastically passionate about their subjects and supremely helpful.


We shall meet them elsewhere on this website.

Have A Good Look Around

So, have good look around this site and determine whether this could be for you, because it isn’t necessarily the case for all.  Read my comments but more importantly spend a few days on each of the websites, become a member at no cost then make your mind  up which is likely to be, for you, the best way to be Earning Through Learning.
