The first international interview with american moneymaker Collin LaHay. Meeting Collin.

Hello Collin, when and where you was born?

I was born November 9th, 1989 in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

minnesota-mapWhat is your education?

I am a freshman in college at the University of Wisconsin: River Falls (Business Major)

When did you become acquainted with the Internet? How did it happen?

I have played computer games for many years, but it wasn’t until two years ago that I accidentally started making money online after putting advertisements on a free website I created in high school.  I created a free site to get around the school filters that stopped us from viewing websites and so many people used it that I made a few hundred dollars from it.

When you start posting your blog collinlahay.com?

November 7th, 2007.

Was there any reason for you to start blogging?

I wanted to help other people make money online just like I was.

Whу did you decide to earn money online?

Because it was a hobby of mine and it also paid my bills.

Is it easier earn money online than offline?

I would say it really depends on the person.  For me, making money online is a lot more rewarding and entertaining, but a lot of people continue to go the old fashioned route of getting a real 9am to 5pm job as that seems to be easier.  I personally will never go back to that kind of job.

How much time of a day do you work in the web for earning money?

I work about 15 hours per week on average, less than half of the time of a «normal» full time job.  I do not really have that much of a set schedule, I can choose when I want to work and what days to work, but since College takes up a lot of my time, I normally work a lot on the weekends.

What earning’s metod do you like best of all?

I like monthly paychecks in return for doing consulting work directly from my clients.  It forces me to continually do my best work without having time to slack off.

How do your parents relate to your online work?

My dad does a little bit of online marketing himself.

Do you post earning’s method on blog?

I use to, but I do not make money from my blog so I stopped a few months ago.

What is your alternative hobby without internet?

I like to go paintballing and to play video games or hang out with friends.

What do you like to do on holidays?

I like to relax :smile:

Would you plan marry soon?

Not anytime soon

Do you like visit other countries, continents?

Absolutely.  I visited Canada last week and have also enjoyed visiting the Bahamas.

Can you work online in other country, if you have laptop and internet?

Yes, I did a little bit of work while I was up North in Canada for Spring Break.

Collin, thanks for agreement. I like to see you on my blog. Good luck. Keep well. See you later on our blogs!
