    Are they OK with you doing blackhat IM?

    My parents completely forbid me from making money online. (not that it works)

    My dad say that I am too stupid to make money without going to university and I will get scammed online.
    (exact wording in our language)

    I don't blame him because this whole thing is really hard to explain to him.
    To him it's all about going to a good university, get good grade and have a career. That's all he know.

    However, it's just sad that sometime people can say hurtful things to their loved ones if they don't share the same opinion.

    When I first started out my dad didn't believe that making money online was possible. At that time I would get a payment of 27 euro's from a ducht cpa network. I was only 15 at that time, and he was laughing at me saying that it would never make it to my bank account. Now almost 1,5 years later I pull in arround 700 euro's monthly at the age at 16.

    My advice to you is to just continue with your IM journey, and just show your dad the proof when you are cashing in a nice chunk of cash each month. If he is a good father he will support you when he sees the true potential of internet marketing and SEO

    Yep full support here.


    University will just get a stable income, LOW income, it is like a guarantee, but Uni alone cannot get you very rich, at least that is my opinion.


    Well have you made any money online? Don't risk their credit cards or anything, first make money online and prove it to them that it is possible to make money online.

    Are you telling him you do not want to go to uni? If so, first make a nice income online, then plan to tell him that :)

    P.S In the other side, you should understand them as well, internet to them seems full of scams, they don't really do what you do online (if they do) , there are a lot of scams on the net, but doesn't mean they're all scams :)

    My parents are also against this work. I am starting with all this and making much better than what my degree can provide me. Still they want me to get a real job.

    That's my plan. I am going tell him with my fat clickbank paycheck.

    To the 4 guys who voted yes: You are so lucky, I wish I can be as lucky as you are.

    A few years ago when I started, my parents said the same about me, but now they brag to everyone about my success. Pull through, but if you fail it'll just get tougher. However, they didn't really mention how I need to go to university, as my dad started business at 16, so they're aware of success without a university degree.

    Family supported me 100% which was great. They saw the potential and importance of residual income. People tend to put it down because they have no idea what the internets about past using facebook and youtube. It's like another world. When they think making money online they tend to think of "stay at home mom makes 700 per day" things.

    I hate parents. They don't know anyhting. Its either do it their way or don't do things. But the problem is they don't see the way they do things is wrong and I don't want the same life as them.

    They don't understand and get frustrated and it just turns to an agruement.

    Great question LP!

    While I am not as young as most posting in this thread, support in this business is really important!

    Early on when I told my wife about this idea of making money online, she was VERY skeptical. We had a number of "discussions" on the matter and with her tentative support, she said ok, go ahead! However, here was the agreement, I could only use up to $800 and that's it! If I failed, then it was no more! So you can see I had some motivation.

    I should tell you, that the other agreement was, once I paid the money back, I was then able to use any extra money on whatever I wanted.

    So with that motivation, I set out, and immediately started making money. Within 6 months I paid back that $800. Within 12 months I bought a new car. Within 18 months she quit her job... YEAH, this is when she started to really believe... and within 3 years I quit my corporate job!!!

    It's been fast and furious, but even with her tentative support, it was a key to my success!

    If you don't have support, and sometimes it can "feel" like you dont have any, make sure you connect with like minding people on a regular basis, dream, plan and act with them and keep positive.

    Thanks again for the question!

    Shawn

    I don't have much support as I still don't earn but I really want to prove that I can make it even from an early age. Once I earn even a small amount, I know they will believe me and support me by then..

    Well, I actually went to univ and can say it's very nice at some extend, as you learn some value things for your life. Like see that humans do whatever they can to "survive", with this I mean, to look good at teachers eyes and that they only think in themselfes. Can really prepare you for the jungle out there.

    When I finished univ, the imediate response from my parents was: "Go get a job now". Every single day they asked me what were my moves in that day in order to get a job. Those voices became louder and I heard statements like: "We spend a fortune for you to go to univ and this is how you retribut? By staying in front of your computer all day?".

    All I asked was just a few more months because, in my head, the idea of getting an 8 hours a day regular job, for my entire life, freaked me out. Everyday I could see in their faces the "useless" feeling they had towards me and the situation I was in that moment of my life, while I was starting IM.

    Long story short, after a few months I started to earn 300€/month. Wasn't much, and I kept listenning some bad things, like my grandmother being ironic, saying:"so, your "internet income", can he buy you a sandwich already?".

    Few months later I started to pull in 1000+€/month. Meanwhile my father lost is job due to the crisis and I started to play an important role in sustaining our lifes, including paying some of my gradmother bills (look how ironic destiny can be).

    I knew I could do it, nobody believed me, but thats fine because karma is a bitch and now everytime I have to pay some bills in my house I can feel and say to myself: WHOSE YOUR BOSS NOW?.

    Ps: I love my family, but they want me so bad to be have success that sometimes don't realize their actions.

    We have some sneaky blackhatter right here.

    How do you hide your IM choice from other people?

    At first i was not telling much to my family while i was learning about marketing and stuff, but since i was working as a freelancer web designer they know'd that i am working something online.

    I told my mom and my closer family that i will pause the university to make a decent cash and get better life, at first they were thinking that i will never make a decent cash online and that i am only wasting my time with it. But today, when i have money, car, flat and i bring luxury lifestyle in my mom's and mine's life( my mom is highly educated person and have a good job, but in our country best payed jobs are shit comparing to IM ), they are not saying anything :) but they still don't get it how i made it ^_^.
