    Just wondering, my family has no idea I'm bringing in 120k. I'm the young one in my family with a stoner reputation, dating back from HS. So i get memes all the time sent to my timeline about stoners. I feel like telling these fuckers that I'm not the lazy kid in HS/city college...fuck you and here's my check. Where uncle sam is fucking me over big time taking 3,200 each month. I have no cool assets cuz im saving. It makes me cringe to see others brag and showing off their new BMW's while they still work at the supermarket. I guess I'm on some immature shit and need to ignore it and go about my biz.

    Keep stacking those stacks and stay away from the fancy stuff just like you are doing.

    No need to tell anyone what kind of money you are making 90% of the time and the other 10% there is probably no need either.

    Stay the course, ignore them and in 10 years you'll probably be set for life.

    Don't be CEOSam OP. Let people think what they want about you. The less they know, the better.

    There's always the chance that they see you making money and they suddenly have their hands stuck out with a sob story so you'll feel bad for them and give them cash. Or they want to be your best friend and use you for money.

    Don't tell them jack. Your sanity is worth the silence.

    Don't do it,! I'm not made big money like you but still telling to people I work online make me lose many of my "fake" friends, and even I always lie for lower the earning and have a salary near to them or below, plus they know I'm from a very poor family and I have work since years for that... Even my rich spoiled kid friends who never had to work on his entire easy life and born in a luxury villa with pool are jealous and make me shit.

    The only thing to do it's just don't care about these people, I'm in the exact same situation as you about my family, they think I'm a broke web designer / drug dealer and half of them don't believe me when I tell them "you can make money online", they don't have any degree and they don't read any books if you know what I mean... You make me laught about the BMW because it's exactly their way to do.

    OP I have the solution! Repeat after me this magic spell : I DON'T GIVE A SHIT, I DON'T GIVE A SHIT, again I DON'T GIVE A SHIT

    Haha no I'm just lucky to work with wealthy ballers in my niche in a populated and competitive industry. My last boss has a huge rep in the persian community, so I was head hunted on linkedin and brought to another city. Another cool thing, my new boss is paying 2,700 for my tiny ass apartment too (just for the first year obviously)....I do bring in million dollar cases via PPC but at the same time I use their budget and resources, it's not pure SEO. But I really got the job because I worked with my old boss when he started his company and showed him the way online and was loyal. My old boss has over 1 million unique followers on IG. He's on some baller shit. All his competitors were head hunting for his staff on linkedin and I was the only one at my old company to go hard on linkedin. So I was lucky, but I have no flexibility now. My other job I was able to work from home.

    Why are you asking us? Do what you like it's your money. Im not one too show off and don't agree with it. Do what you enjoy. The people that show if should have really learnt by now that "it's better to remain quiet than to remove all doubt" of how much a dick they are.

    I gladly am not part of the population that seeks validation from a bunch of strangers on the Internet. I say strangers cuz how many people do you really know in your Facebook friends list?
    But yeah,I don't brag. There's no need for it. ;)

    Don't worry about others and what they think. Its a great job of you that you have created a living for yourself and the most important person you should worry about besides your parents is yourself. Don't let others and their negative energy bring you down and like BTB stated "SAVE YOUR MONEY"

    Bragging on FB? So you want to tell me that you will just post a random ass picture showing how much money you make? People will think even worse of you if you do something so stupid. Let people believe and think what they want to think and just keep getting your money. Eventually you will buy something that will really show how much money you make, if it bothers you that much.

    What's really the point of bragging anyway? Why are you even trying to prove yourself to people? Most of the people I know have no idea I make money online and I'd like to keep it that way, I suggest you do the same.

    Not necessarily an online success but I have this "friend" that always brag his new stuff every god damn time he gets one.

    Posting it on his timeline isn't enough, he needs to tag our whole group.

    In my mind, I'm like, dude you still owe me money and you are posting this?

    Afterwards, I posted that I am listening to Rihanna's "B*tch Better Have My Money" and tagged him.

    He liked it and commented that it's his jam. I commented back saying "Yeah, I know it is :)"

    Because when your family talk to you every single time like you are a stupid broke lazy looser, sometime you just want go insane and tell them "I had work 10h/ day since years and now I earn so much than you from my computer! you know big brain? the magic artefact which you can use only for go to facebook and youporn after your work without any skill!" or something like that.

    But regardless the fact that you can make them violently tary, it does nothing, plus it's very bad to do that so I don't do it but sometime some people deserve it.

    So I brag, everybody respect me. The way they talk to me, and treat me full with respect.

    But, till I got bunch of message wanted to borrow money from me, and some even wanna take advantages toward me.

    Mate, the one thing I've learnt these past couple of years, is there's fucking envy everywhere. People judge you when you're down and not making anything, to when you finally start to succeed and you're making a living your own way.

    Because like you, people assume I'm a bummer because I don't boast, flash, or talk about my success/earnings. I could be earning £60 a day or £300 a day, but unless I specifically tell people, then they just assume the worst, i.e. you live off the state/parents. And if you do tell them the truth, they change their envy to "he doesn't deserve to make that money, he hasn't worked hard enough".

    And my success isn't huge, but it earns enough to provide for myself, and beats the regular 9-5. And yeah when the biz is on maintenance mode, I might only work an hour or two a day, 7 days a week, on my ass, from my house, off my computer (but they don't know that, in reality I could be working 14 hour days). And they will never see the full hour days I worked to setup the foundations of the business, to get to this point of maintenance mode which I can enjoy today. Plus people don't see all the shit I have to put up with when it comes to scammers, staying on top to avoid bad feedback, or ebay's shitty policies which can really screw you over (for example this month I'm banned from uploading or revising my items for 30 days, which stops my repricer from working, which causes more cancellations, and generally a bad profit at the end of the month).

    But yes, I've learnt so much when it comes to envy these last 2 years (which I never knew or seen before). Whether it's from your family you thought were tight knitted (mostly from the aunties/women), your friends, or people you barely know. Envy rears it's ugly head everywhere.

    I use to get annoyed and upset over it. Now I just pity these people and ignore them. In the end I'm the one who benefits from my lifestyle, and they obviously hate their own jobs and want to bring everyone down to their level. I think though, entrepreneurs generally have a different mindset. I can't ever really remember being envious of people's success, instead of being inspired by their success and wanting to copy them.

    In the end, I put it down to people seeing the world on how they think the world should run, as opposed to how the world does run. i.e. The way the world actually is, vs their own personal expectations on how the world should be.
