    I've been thinking...This is the third year since I started working online and since I made my relationship with IM. I don't know you guys, but I can't have 1 single day to take a rest...I can't spend a day without visiting BHW, without checking some new techniques etc. I guess, if someone starts working online, and makes his 1st dollar, it's hard, or even impossible to leave. What do you think?

    I don't think I can ever quit IM. It takes so much will power to not give up when you first start off doing IM. Once you get to a certain level there's no turning back.

    This is what I do. Everything else comes in a distant second.

    its hard to leave cz it involves money, and IM has huge potential... I might leave someday, when Il have enough in my bank to feed me for the rest of my life...

    I'll never quit IM or anything to do with online marketing / mobile marketing and new shit. I love working from home to much and I have 100% control and freedom now, people work YEARS to get what I have now, why would I ever give that up for a low life shit 9-5 job? the only way I'd quit IM is if I got offered a 10 million $ a year job and I was able to work whenever I wanted. But I will retire from IM one day but I wont ever forget how it changed my life

    IM is addicting man.

    And now that I have been a regular member of BHW, I find myself reading and learning great tactics for making money. The huge potential that the Internet allows.

    My girlfriend has been complaining that I have been spending too much time here. I also hardly use FB anymore... :)

    As long as their continue to be ways to make money online that don't involve me getting up every day to go to work and make the money, I will be here in the IM world building my wealth for the future. I enjoy taking a week or a month to build systems that then make money for me for a year or longer after I stop working on them. That is the real appeal to me. I hate working hand to month like a regular job.

    IM is like a drug,after you use it for a longer time,it becomes harder and harder to quit,that's my opinion,but i don't see any reason why would someone quit IM,because here are a lot of easy money to be made!

    Let's not include people who retire here :D

    Yeah, I would back you up on that. It's all too profitable and interesting to leave behind. Every time I tried to quit when I only made some change for a few hours of work I'd always find myself right back here not too long after. And sure enough, every time I've quit and come back, I've made considerably more and more on each attempt.

    Well once I make enough money automatically through IM i will, of course, take a break more often :p But I don't think I'll quit working completely though..

    There's no better way than this, and we all know from our experience, there is NO getting out.

    I'm still looking for a day job, but I have no intention of stopping either way. I like being able to make extra money from home.

    I just wish I found it sooner. I don't know why I didn't hear about before last year. I would of been all over this back in college - and from what people say, it was a lot easier a few years ago too. Oh well.

    I think about quitting other stuff which I even haven't started yet, like regular work :D or smoking etc.

    But this sentence:" Quitting IM" doesn't fit in my mind, it sounds like chinese.

    Im taking a sabbatical from IM lol

    Iv'e been running around like a chicken with no head just banging my head into the wall for past 16months now

    (Iv'e been Self Employed at home that entire time)

    Im going to get a Job Soon working 2weeks a month Straight, Every Month.
    That Pays $25,000 Before tax every Month

    Then in my Spare time I'll put all my money into Outsourcing EVERYTHING ENTIRELY

    The job im going for is Oil rig work, Working Offshore/at Sea working on a Rig
    Pay Starts at 300k a Year

    In US Pay for this kind of work is lucky to get up to 100k a year

    But it's gone crazy & the wages are just out of control, so im just doing Courses & building my fitness up preparing for the work.

    Even if I was Making 500k a year After Tax for lets say 2 weeks work only, every month

    I'd still Focus on Move forward to builing a Solid IM Business
    Only way I'd live my life in Employment, Was if I only had to work, 1week a month & was being Paid Minimum 150k+ a year after tax.

    TIME is farrr More VALUABLE & the Freedom to spend your time, Wherever you want WHEN you want

    Seriously again if I made 100mil or 1bil Online
    if I got to that stage I Know I'd personally would go crazy & just Use as much Recourses as I can & build as big of an Empire as I can.

    It has been soo much Fun when you make alot in short time frames & sooooo easily

    Iv'e made not alot online, but Iv'e made 1k within 6 day's for only 2mins work each day

    Doing CPA

    I didn't even SPEND 5mins a day when I did that

    That is some crazzzy stuff
    I spent 15mins working in one week to make a Wage iv'e made in the past for working for 50hour's
