Getting online jobs in Kenya for students has always been a kind of a mystery to many individuals. Honestly speaking, I have never thought that earning money online is legit or even real because of the fact that the internet is made up of scammers.

The Rule of thumb – Avoid Distractions!
When I first started working online, I was overwhelmed, excited and confused at the same time. I didn’t know what to do, imagine having full speed internet at your disposal, you can stream and download any movies you want, watch Youtube videos, chat on Facebook etc. It took quite a time to satisfy my cravings and I ended up paying dearly for it.
Back to business, I tried so many methods for making and earning money online, registered on so many websites, bought so e-books and even tried getting tutored online to become an online marketer, which did not happen. I almost gave up and thought that this wasn’t meant for me!
It was through the help of my brother and lots of serious thinking and actions that my breakthrough came to pass. I’m going to share my simple methods with you and hope that these methods will work with you too.
This information is ageless and requires patience. If you stick and play by the rules, you will be making money straight from the internet to your Mpesa account at your own pace and time.
