I know that to build a business you need both time and money, but can it be done within a limited time frame? This is my situation. I really wamt to start a business within the IM world and I know exactly what to do, though the only problem is time (and maybe money). So I have a little less than 2.5 months to make something good happen. I know it takes time to learn all about your business to make it happen, but can it be done within a timeframe? In very short, my story is like this. I took a semester off of university to go 100% on IM, though it maybe a rough decision, i am still working on this. This semester is to proof my parents that IM is not some sort of scam but a real business. Though i have not been successful, i am willing to work on it but i would like some advice from business owners or successful people. Of course the goal is to make money and i seriously think that about $400/m would do the job as thats the average salary down here in mexico. (Well it might be a little higher, but you get the idea). So, what do you suggest i do? Keep grinding and hope to get 'there'? Do you think that right now i should focus in creating churn and burn sites to reach the $400/m? My only fear is that if i took action in creating an authority site is that it might take too long to see results money-wise.
