    Hello! My name is Cameron and I am a 39 y/o disabled veteran. Even though I signed up for mTurk years ago, I actually only did my first hit 3 weeks ago.

    I'm doing mTurk to earn extra income to help out the wife and kids but, more than anything, its about self worth. It has been a hard adjustment going from working for 22 years and being head of the household to being unemployed, disabled, and dealing with a lot of health issues. mTurk is one of several things helping me return to that feeling of being productive and useful once again.

    Goal for month was $250 but I'm already at $390 with 3 days left (besides waiting on hits and bonuses to be paid which will push that higher) so I am extremely pleased.

    July Stats (so far)
    Approved hits - 4,782
    Pending - 714
    Rejections - 1
    Per Hit Average - 0.082
    Overall Wage - 4.96/hr

    Future goal? I'd love to reach those $1,000 month levels I read about in the forums but am settling on a more realistic $400.

    The best advice I could give you is to keep an eye out on those qualification HITs, but I have a feeling you'll do quite fine even without much help or advice! Welcome to the thread and best of luck to you. Hope to see you in the daily threads!

    Getting to 5000 approved HITs is an important step for bigger bucks.
