I've stepped away from Internet Marketing for awhile because I got a 9-5 and have been putting in a lot of overtime. I got my paycheck the other day and realized how much more I like working at a company instead of doing IM. Just less competition out there for you guys, as if I was any to start with. I was wondering if people here felt like they get paid for what they're worth for doing IM. Looking back I made some money, but if it was an hourly job I would have made more then I profited. All of the menial tasks could have been outsourced if I had the money. Making twitter, facebook, yahoo, hotmail, youtube, gmail, accounts. I'm sure I could have managed my time better, but in the long run I make more money offline then I've ever made online. What about the perks you say? Working in your underoos, setting your own schedule, doing what you want when you want to. For some people that's more of a deterrent to get work done then an asset. If you don't proactively set goals and get to accomplishing them you end up spending all day watching videos on youtube or playing computer games and you're broke. Sure I have to be on someone's time schedule, have to do something I don't really enjoy, have to play office politics and wear normal clothing. I also get a solid paycheck every other Friday. Working gives my life a sense of structure. I've seen a couple of methods on BHW here recently I might do if they prove fruitful but for the most part I'm happy with the money I'm making now. If I want more, I just work overtime. Can't get overtime with IM. You may work it, but not always get paid more for it. When the minimum requirement becomes your maximum effort, the result is mediocrity. Are You Getting Paid What You're Worth?
