Am I the only one around here that doesn't care about money?

    Everywhere I go people seem to have an odd obsession with money. I do IM because I find it to be enjoyable. My goal in life isn't to be rich as hell but rather, to be fulfilled and if I get rich on the way, great, if I don't, I won't care.

    I agree, BUT

    I do need to pay for RENT, CAR, WEED, OFFICE, etc...

    So, I agree I am a hippie at heart,

    But in all reality WE are all looking for a way to make a quick/stable INCOME :)

    Happy Friday :)

    How much money you are making is how you determine how successful you are at IM or any other career or income source.

    Don't worry RakeItIn (that nickname seems a bit ironic), I'm like you about money, which is why I do not overcharge my clients and I make sure to do quality work to the best of my abilities. Of course, I care enough about money to know that I need it to continue living and doing my work, but making money for myself is not my top priority.

    Money buys you freedom. The money isn't important in itself, but the time and opportunities it gives you are extremely important.

    If you don't have enough money for basic needs then all your effort has to continually go into trying to get enough to meet those needs. Once you surpass the basic needs though, really all you need is enough money for whatever your wants and desires are. To achieve that probably doesn't require riches, just enough to be free to pursue your own dreams.

    By the time a lot of people have reached that point though, they've become so consumed with the pursuit of money that they've forgotten the point of having it.

    Money is a tool that people hold value in and therefore I enjoy what money can buy. To say that I am a business man or into IM only for money would be a huge lie. I personally love creating new companies and business is my passion.

    I am blessed to have excellent business partners and friends whom I have met and that alone is a huge asset that does not fit in monetarily all the time. I enjoy the lifestyle and not receiving that steady little check from some company.

    well you can only understand the value of money you don't have it, obsession is a different thing altogether.

    I just like competing. Money is an awesome side effect. When I'm at the gym I try to lift heavier weights than the dude next to me. When I play ball, I try to score more points than anyone else on the floor.

    To be honest, I wouldn't work if it wasn't for money. I love what I do (programming and stuff). But there are more things in life that i'd rather do if I had the money.

    Think about it - you do IM because you find it enjoyable? I call that bs.

    Internet marketing is quite enjoyable for me. Every time I receive a check or a Paypal invoice, it just reminds me that I've proved everyone who ever told me that I cannot make money online wrong. It's not the money so much as it is that I did something that teachers and relatives called 'impossible'. Internet marketing has also taught me how to better understand how people work, and occasionally psychologically manipulate them using colours, wording, imagery, etcetera; a trick that is invaluable to me in the "real world" since I'm autistic and I cannot naturally understand or socialise with people.

    So yes, Internet marketing is interesting and enjoyable for me.

    The only people who say they don't care about money are the ones who have so much of it their whole lives and have never been poor or those who have none of it and have realized that they will never see it.

    I'm going with the OP is broke and living with his parents. Lets see how much he doesn't care about money when he knocks up his girlfriend and needs money for diapers.
