    I just read a new saying that girl's parents dont accept her relationship with a guy who works as a freelancer. They thought his job is not stable to take care of the family even though he made 5 times higher than everage income in my country.

    Do people around you think the same ?

    Despite the prevalence of internet marketing, it's still an unconventional route that people don't know much about, therefore people in the general public don't see it as a "real job". It also doesn't help that a lot of people who fit the stereotypical "loser mould" (i.e., can't get a job, no car, has no qualifications, still live with their parents) are attracted to internet marketing. People like to look at the worst examples and act like that's the standard.

    It's just something you'll have to learn to overcome if you're going to be in internet marketing or self-employed.

    Totally. People around here are traditional and conservative ┬┐Home office? Better pickup your shovel you lazy bastard!. Would be amazing if people saw others alternatives like not working 8 hours a day for 40 years...

    After 14+ years, I still experience it. Older/dumber people can't wrap around their heads about this thing called "internet marketing." I have learned to ignore it over the years, so I'm not bothered by it anymore.. but it sure is a bit annoying from time to time.

    The issue with them is that they can't understand that there's more than just plain old physical work (no you don't need to bust your ass off on construction or shovel shit). I have been doing IM/AM nearly my whole life.. and since my hands are softer than baby's ass, they say I don't do real work. It doesn't matter whether I roll by in my new Benz and they still sit in their piece of shit car (I'm talking about 10+ years old, broken, rusty shit) (enter some other fancy/shitty comparison of material crap here).

    The funny thing is that I chose this way because I like to wake up late.. and based on the norm of the general public, I'm considered to be a very lazy person lol.

    People are complicated.. which is why I love IM so much! I bet most of us who have been in the business for years could rant for days about this topic.

    Thank god is still the unconventional route..because for most people working 9h 6h is still the only world they know about. I takes creativity and balls to find other routes...and grinding until you see results.

    Most people don't have the patience to stick to something until they are successful...

    The follow the herd mentally is present in all major areas...

    So I don't mind looking like a crazy lazy ass shaman when talking about internet marketing and that it will give me the time and money to reach my goals.

    Regards

    some people think that we are doing something illegal otherwise how can be without a job. Yes we dont need to care about them but getting married is a really a big concern.

    Where I'm based everyone thinks if you say you're a freelancer it basically means you're a drug dealer.
