    Do you wish you started IM when you were younger?

    What type of IM would you have done?


    Theres a lot of people in thier 30's and 40's on this forum and i was thinking if you started at say 14 when i did you would probably be millionaires or in jail :p

    When I was young there was no public internet. We did stuff at 300 BAUD.

    And btw, I've been to jail and it ain't that bad. Prison on the other hand...

    I wish I started when I was in high school. Like 16-17 years old. I'm 23, and have a few years experience but it would be nice to have 5-6 years experience! Definitely would have jumped in facebook marketing a lot earlier for sure and made bank!

    i actually tried to start younger but it didn't work out because i was too damn lazy and wasn't really motivated enough at that age.

    it wasn't until i got a job working in a cubicle farm that i really dove head-first into IM because working 9-5 every day for someone else really, really sucks ;)

    jail is where you're waiting to be convicted and prison is where you do the time for your conviction or something

    To most people it is but I think in America they make a distinction. I think in one place you are guaranteed to get butt-f*ed by gangbangers and in the other maybe not.

    But anyway, yeah I wish I had started earlier. In my early 30s and I did start in my mid to late 20s but I wish I had done this when I was 16 or something.

    Forget college, what a waste of money.
