Why Make Money Online

Why make money online? I have always been a strong believer that, in addition to your corporate career, everyone should have a revenue generating side gig. The reasons for doing this can be numerous:
• Financial security
• Flexible lifestyle
• Happiness/less stress
• To fulfill the deficiencies of your day job
• Quitting the corporate “cube” life
• Extra spending money
• Insurance / Something to fall back on
• Expediting retirement (or taking several semi-retirements)
• Just the thrill of it (bragging rights to your friends)
