    Just starting to turk--waiting for approval.

    In the meantime, I'm reading "just starting out" threads, downloading tools and scripts and trying to gear up for that first 1000 HITs.

    I'm 40-something, three teenage kids (one in college, one leaving this fall and one in high-school), FT job as data analyst, PT job at fast food...yeah, I need $$$.

    Hoping this is doable for some decent extra cash. Hoping to ditch the PT fast food gig.

    Have a great day, y'all!

    welcome!
    there are definitely days where this will be better than a minimum wage job.. and some days where it won't be. stick with it though! the first few weeks are kinda rough, but it gets better :)

    Echoing @Lepi@Lepi's statement, you are doing yourself a huge favor by reading up, but there is still a huge learning curve so don't hesitate to ask questions! Welcome to MTC!
