The best advice I can give is to not give up. When I first started, I was so confused with how you could actually make money online, and I was swamped with information.
I would visit this forum every day, and learn more and more everyday, and eventually the picture became clearer and clearer.
If you do not give up, if you stick with it, have patience and are persistent, it will work for you. Oh yeah, and there is no magic button...
Thanks to everyone here.
