I have come across an article on Yahoo, “A Harvard psychologist says people judge you based on 2 criteria when they first meet you,” by Amy Cuddy. She is a Harvard social psychologist professor. She says the two criteria are trust and respect. Can you trust and respect people the first time you them? I do not think so. This has to take time for these two qualities to be certain. Amy Cuddy says people evaluate you from an evolutionary perspective. That trustworthiness is the most important factor of the two (Trust and respect). This is due to a survival factor. Another thing she points out, students, in the case of the articles (MBA interns), concerns too much on being competent(respect factor), that they are likely to skip social events and come off as unapproachable. This can hurt in the job market. I am in this same boat. I am not very social and have been looking to get into my field for over two years. To me, I think companies in the field I went to school for, clinical research, are overlooking me. I do not have that trust factor, but the respect factor. I have B.S. and M.S degrees in clinical research. That is why I have turned to the internet to look for ways to make money. It is hard to work at Wal mart to pay back loans. Anyways, most people that I have accounted say I am trustworthy person. I do not believe you can tell someone is trustworthy and respectful in a first encounter.

During my week fun long journey on finding ways to make money online, I have found more than what I was expecting. I have met and developed friendships with people in the communities. Whether it was in forums, articles that I have been searching on ways to make money. Even a game that I have been playing, ESPN’s Streak For The Cash. That is a game where you try to build a streak at the end of the month, and whoever has the longest streak, wins money or whoever has the most monthly win also wins money. I have met friends on a new affiliate program called Wealthy Affiliate. This program is owned by two people, Kyle and Carson. This program is different from other affiliate programs, where the owners actually walk you step by step, and if you have any questions, the two will answer them on their site through discussion boards or you can email them. Their site shows you how to find your niche, which is something that you are trying to promote and finding a targeted audience and how to be indexed into search engines such as Google, Bing, and Yahoo. They also teach you how to write content that will be appealing to an audience. As I have mentioned in earlier posts, I had already signed up to one affiliate program called Get Paid by Taking Pictures through ClickBank. This journey for me has been fun and exciting and I am still searching for ways to make money online. There is not one way that is perfect for anyone to make money. I have done surveys on a site called MySurvey, and might look to join Vindale Research to do more surveys. I am doing two affiliate programs to promote and playing virtual games online such as Streak For The Cash. Even though I am not getting paid for it, I signed up to Daily Pages where there is a prompt and you respond to it, each and every day. You may not get paid, but you can potentially be featured on its site and can potentially develop some sort of a platform and can draw people to become part of your audience. Anyways, there are endless ways to earn money online. Like the saying goes, “Do not put all your eggs in one basket.” You have to be diversified if you want to make money online. I have seen one post on Facebook that read, a millionaire has at least seven different incomes streaming into his or her account. If you want to live big, you have to think big. Thanks for reading.
