I don't make nearly as much as some of you but I know that if I told people, they would bug me endlessly questioning how I did it. I keep it a secret except for my close family and I think that is the best thing for me right now. I feel that once one friend finds out, it will spread like wildfire and everybody will question me and put me in a no win situation. If they find out, I could help them and expect them to constantly bug me about it and cut into time that I could be learning more,(I am far from an expert at this time) or if I don't help them, they will get angry. If this becomes a full time thing for me then i expect to tell them, but for now, I think it is best to keep it quiet so i don't have to deal with their jealousy. I'd like to give back at some point but I think I will reserve that for the this community as opposed to them considering this site has helped me so much. So, do you guys share what you do with others if it isn't your full time job? Maybe some of you are lucky and actually have friends that also do IM but for me, it is like 2 different worlds.
