It's actually easier than you might think. The key is to focus on learning a long-term business model like niche blogging (my fav.), ghostwriting (for other marketers or getting paid to publish content on sites), having a Private Label Rights store or publishing stories on Kindle. There are others. These are just the most common ones. Also, it's important to remember that everyone starts at the bottom. Your income will grow over time. Do some research to figure out what you might like and take action.
