From 0 to $1k in 90 days (An online earning challenge)

James Ryan Jonas

It is not impossible to earn at least $1,000 every month. A lot of people have already proven that.

But is it possible for someone who does not have a credit card, is not willing to shell out a substantial amount of money, and has only minimum knowledge of the internet to go from zero to $1,000 online earnings a month in just under 90 days?

That’s exactly what workingpinoy wants to know. He is asking for hypothetical but viable scenarios where a complete newbie can go from earning zero to P50,000 ($1,000) a month in 3 months or less. Everything must come from online opportunities.

Assume as well the following conditions about the newbie:

  1. Has no or does not want to use his credit card;
  2. Not tech-savvy, meaning not well-versed in programming or advanced softwares;
  3. Can only shell out a maximum of $25;
  4. Does not know how to create a website or blog;
  5. Does not want to join online MLM programs

Is it possible?
