Would you guys quit your job taking online job or gpt sites. Go full time job taking online survey and join bunch gpt sites?

You have a freedom to make your own schedule and work in your pajamas. No more boss harassing you come to work.


If you stay at home. You are the boss. You do whatever you want.

You can take your laptop working in the beach.

I have an office. I don't think anyone has been there for about two years now, other than to collect post. We used to use it for meetings and stuff, but we discovered bug trackers are easier. We also use to use it for the odd occasion clients wanted to meet in person, but then most of our trade moved to Germany, and they wanted to do it all online too. I've worked from home all the time, really. I occasionally pretend to go to the office, but that's to avoid people coming round, not to actually work.

The point is, there are better ways of working from home.

Ignore the fact that you can't earn a living with surveys, let's pretend you can.

It's still not worth it. They're just not interesting. I like my job - that's why I still do it, even though I have to rely on a rewards site to top up my earnings. You can sit at home and do something interesting. It's not an either/or choice.

I think it's best to make the money first and know you have some solid income to rely on,
before you quit the 9 to 5, so to speak.

I did when I was freshly qualified. I enjoyed making people call me Doctor for a while. When I grew out of the pretentiousness, I never worked 9-5 again.

People have always been lazy. Think about the caveman time frame. The caveman couldn't
even exert enough energy to date a woman. Couldn't even introduce themselves properly.
Nooooo, they'd just dray the woman by the hair of their head and drag them to their cave.
How much lazier does it get than that?

When I was fresh out of college, I enjoyed working 9 to 5 because I loved my job. I worked with delinquent teenagers and I had a blast with them. As I got older and found it harder to keep up with them on the strenuous outdoor activities like backpacking, I migrated to an office job. That's when I started hating my jobs: claustrophobia in small offices, constant ringing phones, gossip, office politics . . . blah blah. Not for me. Working at home modestly supplements my retirement and I'm perfectly fine with that. My idea of hell is working in an office cubicle all day.

Saw a cute cartoon recently where the character remarked that if they won the lottery, they would not quit their job immediately. They would just hang around and make their boss miserable for a couple of weeks first!

But then they get the surprise of their life because the woman starts bossing them around and tossing them out of the cave to go find some mammoth meat. She puts him to work.

I forgot about that part, lotoole.

David, being your own boss is not always what it people may think it is.

Reminds me of my aunt. She's on up in age now and lives with one of the grand children.
Most of her life, she owned a house that she paid on the monthly mortgage. Eventually,
they sold the house in the country and rented a house inside the city. She said the reason
why they did that was because:

-They had to mow lots of yard
-They had to pay for lawn mowers
-They had to pay for gas for the lawn mowers
-They had to pay for upkeep/repairs of the lawn mowers
-They had to buy new lawn mowers when the old wore out
-They had to pay a monthly mortgage that was more than rent
-They had to pay property tax
-They had to pay property insurance
-They had to pay more gasoline going to and from town, rather than being in town
-They had to pay for a new roof
-They had to pay for house upkeep....paint, repairs, etc
-They had to spend a lot of their time at their house doing the above that they didn't spend enough time with each other and enjoy things outside of the house as much

What they liked about paying rent:

-Much lower monthly outlay since the rent was lower than their mortgage was
-Very small yard to mow that only took them about 15 minutes
-Almost null to pay for a mower, gas, upkeep, etc. In fact, they used a manual mower half the time
-No expense for home repairs. Anything that went wrong or needed repaired, the landlord had it done immediately
-Saved a ton of vehicle gasoline since they no longer had to drive into the city daily
-No property tax to pay
-No property insurance to pay
-----And she said, when they died, their children wouldn't have to argue over who got the house since they no longer had one!

And.....a couple of years ago, her husband passed away. As I said, she now lives with a grand daughter.
She doesn't even have the rent to pay now.

So what has that got to do with being your own boss?

A lot. Because when you are your own boss, you do have your own expenses too.

Well I wouldn't quit my "925" daytime job, but it depends on how many digital-internet-based stream incomes I would have & the level of intelligence-automated these would be. :?

Working from home is great from the reasons gathered by my above-posted users, however if you're a chatterbox, an extrovert, your social life can take a hit. Well it depends on how big is your social circle outside your workplace to be precise.

For me, working from home, having an army of multi-clickers, bots, etc. would be super, because then I wouldn't have to concentrate that much on the existential part of my life & I could focus much more on other projects. Maslow is everywhere folks ! :twisted:
