    Its all in the title.

    My brother visited us just to check my mom. I am living with my mom while my siblings are in other place.

    They are having the talk about something like problems and such.

    I am not participating on the conversation coz I am busy with my sites and stuff.

    All of sudden, he started questioning about what am I doing. Asking me if I have plans in a having a REAL JOB, which do have Steady Paychecks month by month. Questioning my income. My activities and such. I am totally annoyed. He is pushing me to have a J O B, which I don't want to in the first place. He is saying people who is employed in Makati (Business Are in my Country) makes 40K php a month ( $1k in USD). He is totally amazed when he is telling that SHIT story.

    Why?

    I made a freaking $1k plus in a month in just staying at HOME. Capital HOME is AUTOPILOT.

    He knows that, and started questioning me again, asking where is the money? where did I put it? He is like justifying i am still a kid. A 21 year old who don't know what to do in life. Telling me the BENEFITS of being an employed citizen. Having some Pension from the Government and such.
    Oh god. I am so mad, why the hell is he saying that to me. I know its for CONCERN or such, but the way he said it. He is FREAKING Jealous.

    I told him I can buy a house in 5 years. He is like, ARE YOU SERIOUS? With the money I earn I can only buy a Second hand car.

    He earns around 25 K - 30 K month. ($500 - $750) working night shifts as a call center job, who is seriously in Bad debt with few savings and don't have an own house and married. They are living in my mom's property.

    I got mad because I am doing a thing that is GOOD, and that makes me happy. I know that I will make a fortune in this, coz I already did it.
    I KNOW!

    Did your family questioned you or supported when you started the IM grind?

    You are a filipino - most of your nationals are being brainwashed in a very hard way.
    Don't expect anything from you brother - looks like he is one of the stupids that believe whats been shown on TV and told in school.

    I didnt get supported by my parents because I was doing BH already 2001 with Fake-CC and AOL-Accounts - then started my first pornsite which I didnt wanted to show off anywhere :D

    Yes, I am. I am so sad what happen to fellowmen. They are still living with the principle of getting a job with steady paycheck, not reaching their dreams. And regretting in the end.

    It makes me so sad and angry coz he is my Brother. I am showing him by example that doing a business is much better than having a JOB. He doesn't listen coz he is older. Arg!

    I really don't expect to get anything from him. Its just breaks my heart to see he is also brainwashed by the government.

    my mom , god rest her soul, supported me through the IM game since 2006.
    when i had $ i did all the things we all like to do. in the lean times when $ was hard
    to come by, she bailed me out, but knowing when things picked up she got it back.

    some will understand what u do, some will envy, and some wont care.
    just do your work, earn your $ and look forward. and fck what others think

    Thanks man. Yeah, I noticed that when things are not going well. They are like starting to shift minds when you have money and when you don't.

    Is that really how money influences people?

    When I'm doing really well my mom won't say shit.

    When things slow down she starts to scream about getting a job.

    Good motivator honestly ;D

    Well my parents never cared, or i should say they never tried to know. I started to do IM when i was free and had nothing to do. It was more like a hobby in the beginning. But after getting few hundreds $$, now do it to get my pocket money ( my aim is few thousands $$ now)

    My parents supported my IM career. They are like most parents, living in their time and never really learned everything you can do with a computer besides email and checking gujaratsamachar.com lol

    We have a business as well, so I taught them how I am driving more traffic to the business and then they started supporting my IM career helping me find other clients.

    Everytime I try to explain what I do, it never works. They barely know what a computer actually is.

    My parents do support me in my IM ventures, they are happy that I am earning money. I guess I'm lucky that they do not pick on me like others do with a "real job" :)

    If it is autopilot and it left you with many hours which you could utilize it, why dont you spend those hourse doing another job? More money, more social and activities. I too left my full time work (was paid $1k) while at the same time my online business give me around 1.5k ~ 2.5k. After 3months staying at home I decided again to continue my full time work with other company. Its all about your decision.

    Ignore him and do your thing.

    At first, my parents didn't really supported me too but they eventually did when I started doing well. You know, they feel like there's no real money in the internet.

    Show him who's boss. Don't let him discourage you.

    Playing with IM since 2004 meh, I have enough torture from people already.

    Friends. (keep saying me, I just wasting my time)

    Family. (get a real job)

    Girlfriend. (I have no future)

    But now hehe.

    I bought new car cash and give it to my father(now all my family just zip their mouth), with hundred of K in bank account(my friend zip their mouth too).

    While my other friend keep struggling finding a job and paying the college debt. :D

    Hehehehehhhh.

    Just ignore them and think positive. Sometime you need people like them, to give pain on you, more like motivation.

    Without pain and struggle, you will got zero improve.

    My father removes the modem randomly when he gets angry because I am in the house too much and need to go outside. They have also tried to tell me I am a looser because I am on the computer so often.
    They tell me to get a real job and work at the grocery store.
    They have taken my computers which I bought myself and hidden them because I need more friends and need to be on the computer less.
    They took about $6,000 of my savings from eBay and all my childhood Christmas savings because they were in so much debt and I had to pay them back for what they had done for me. I was too young to open my own bank account so one of them cosigned.
    Oh, and I saw no birthday present this year, not that I care, but they did take all my money.
    Among many many more verbal insults about being in the house and on the computers too much.

    I have not talked to them other than to make small talk about the garbage or if we have grocery's or things like that in over 6 weeks. They still knock at my door and threaten they are going to remove the hinges unless I give up my computers like it is a fucking war. They have no limits, it is quite incredible.

    I am trying to save up so I can move out but if I move out before I am 18 they will send the cops to come and bring me back since I can't legally move out yet. And there is no way I can get one of those divorce from my parents things because I don't have any steady income; my parents are very successful and absolute charmers outside of the house. Plus the only abuse me verbally with abuses calling me pathetic and telling me they wish they could trade me in with another son, etc. I am just trying to get through this next year.
