Let’s first agree that making a few thousand a month is not simply made, not trying to discourage you at all but bear with me.
There are two main ways to make money, whether it’s online or offline:
Working as an employee, having specific tasks to get done, taking orders from a manager or an employer, and getting a definite basic salary for it that is guaranteed.
Owning a business, whether it was a tech company or selling toilet paper at the streets or having a small social media account, and here you don’t get any definite compensation for it, nothing is guaranteed.
Most people hate the first option and dream of the second one, but it’s not that easy to put a plan, execute on it, choose the right idea, do market research, etc.
So, the hardship is more about having the ability to make your online business “profitable,” for example, to find a successful way of monetizing your social media account.
Once more, it’s all about making the first dollar, not the first 1000; there are a billion ways you could follow to make money online; if you were successful with any, I believe you could maximize your scale and reach further milestones.
