First, I'd like to say that I havent done this myself but I thnk its a great advice for those who are stuck with their annoying 9-5 and other worries that are keeping you away from focusing on IM! So, what you need to do is get a volunteer job! Yes, you heard me right! Companies that organize volunteers volunteering outside of hometown usually DOES pay you and PROVIDES flat to live in! They give you just enough to eat and cover basic living expenses, but flats (rent, electricity, water, heating) are usually covered! This means you can do a great job helping people and fully focus on IM not worrying about other stuff! You can also visit different countries, where living expenses are much lover and your hard earned IM money will be woth much more! Just get your laptop, move to country you like, volunteer a bit and do IM stuff aloung the way! Some friends of mine have been volunteering a bit and they can confirm that these jobs are usually very easy and noone is pushing you to be productive or anything because you are volunteering. So, what I mean is, IM has a lot of ups and downs and if you are a newbie, don't have a stable income or just can't manage money well, doing this will have you covered in a case you fail and loose all money. You have very basic living style to fall back on with 0$/day IM income.
