    Hi, I'm curious as to what the demographic is like here.

    Do you currently have a marketing job? Or are you self employed?

    I'm doing an SEO internship at a marketing agency. Looking to get my foot into the door and get that entry level SEO or PPC job. Curious as to what your marketing backgrounds are.

    I'm self-employed, but technically also employed... you know what, let's not get into this. We'll just say "both".

    Most people here are self-employed or trying to be. A lot are where I was a decade ago... in high school, hustling online, living rent free with parents, etc. Now I'm self-employed.

    So what do you do as an SEO intern? Where? How much do they pay for an entry SEO position?

    See, that could have been a much better title for a thread - working towards a 20k/mo job as an SEO guy

    Been self employed for 4 years. Once you get spoiled by how much money you make as an entrepreneur, you cant go back to working at a company, its impossible for me to have an employer now as Ive been spoiled.

    Hope you find a good niche! I can tell you that Im not a millionaire but Im pretty well off, its allowed me to travel, buy real estate, a nice BMW. The best advice I can give you is this - 1. When you are ready to venture off on your own be careful with spending ( that can ruin you ). 2. As an IM Entrepreneur - it does not matter how much you make, what matters is how much you keep ( keep costs low.
    If you do not have to don't hire employees ) 3. Be frugal when you can. 4. Try to develop at least 3 streams of income. Good luck to you!

    The best thing I ever heard - 1% of the world population employ the rest 99%. It was during a affiliate promo event.
