When I used to wash dishes I used to envy the full time dish washer employees, as I was a lesser dish washing sub contractor, who was not even employed. I hated the people, who judged over my dish washing skills and the people who didn't have to worry, as they were full time employed and wouldn't loose their job as easily. FW to 2016, 5 years later approx, I make like 10k a month from my clients doing SEO and online marketing in general. The money has risen, but so has the pressure, big time! When I started programming sites my aim was to make 100 ? / monthly from home. Next goal was to quit dish washing and toilet cleaning (seemed pretty impossible at the time). After that I thought, 2k / month would be insane achievement. My new goal is 100k / month, which seems impossible at the moment. My final goal is: Being financially completely independent. Never be afraid again. Never be on the street again. But, what I found out, money makes things better, but it doesn't automatically kill the anxiety. You don't get to feel the "you made it" feeling for a long time or ever. You never know. You never trust success, even though your grandma is very proud of you. How about you? Do you think you made it? What is your plan for after you made it?
