When I first discovered BHW, I was pretty much in my lowest of lows. I was pretty much living on the streets, and for a while I didn't know what I was going to do. Basically, I took a chance moving somewhere where I had NO support system (family), and had NO job. Thankfully, I had found this as well as other places and forums, got the information I needed to at least get back on my feet at the time, and from there have started my journey in the wonderful world of IM. Since IM took ALOT of time away from my MAIN passion (music), I have spent and sacrificed alot of my time away from doing what I TRULY love to continue to make a living. Because I absolutely Loth working in a job, working for myself has kept me sane. But I can't help but feel a deep, almost lingering depression whenever Im not working toward what I feel is my calling. As a musician, I battle with this everyday. In the past two months, I decided to try to put my time into another project online to expand my market share (and bank balance), but as I've gone through the testing phase of this next campaign, I'm starting to realize that I'm putting more time into something I had no intentions on making a career in the first place. Because the truth of the matter seems to me that, in most cases, if you want to succeed at something, you need to put both time and effort (and SOME money at first) in order to become widely successful at it, at least somewhat. So I've come to a cross roads here. I'm still VERY passionate about music (been doing it ALL my life), and I've even moved to another state all together to pursue it. But I've notice myself getting cault up in making more and more money so I can "get ahead". My question to you guys is this: Has anyone of you who started doing IM for one reason or another found yourself giving up what you love in order to do what you have to to survive? If so, how did you manage to get back to doing what you love, and did you finally get a chance to make a living from it?
