    If everyone in the world had that mindset shit would collapse very, very fast.


    Not to mention it depends on what job you're doing. Some people actually like their job you know.

    I'm glad about that too! We all need people who are willing to be plumbers, trash men, doctors, etc. Nothing wrong with any of those professions...

    Thankfully! Think about how things would be if IM was for everyone... then we might all be on a "how to secure a 9-5 the whitehat way" forum. :p

    My dad would have a heart attack if he saw this :D "Get a job and stay with them for the rest of your life" is his mentality.

    Getting is always good. When I started learning about making money online, I was working at the same time. My job helped me a lot because I was able to invest in many ebooks teaching many methods. Those methods were not saturated then as what we have now.

    I was also able to buy software, get freelancers to code any software for me and try a lot of things. I was not afraid to try any IM method because I knew that I would never go bankrupt because my job was still there.

    LOL what about the months of 15+ hour days sat in front of your computer screen to achieve this 24/7 "passive income", which could dry up at anytime.

    He makes some valid points yet some make me think he is bashing on people with jobs for the sake of it. For example the point about becoming social inbreds this point is ridiculous especially considering the fact that alot of IMers or similar passive income earners etc will be sat in front of their computer at home, alone, for vast periods of time.

    Its articles like this that make people think IM is the easy option to getting a job when in actual fact you could find yourself working more hours on it than you were when you had a job.

    Agree regarding IM job. There's no such thing as passive. We have to work and maintain our websites in order to keep that "passive earning", not to mention we spend too much time at home, which mean our business connection won't expand (since on IM world, connection doesn't mean much).

    But i still prefer to do my IM business rather than office job since I don't want to be told what to do (i don't like bosses)
