    Look Behind YOU!
    Hi everyone,

    Just wanted to give all of you who are sitting behind your computer a heads up that the summer is coming to an end and that you should enjoy it while you still can. Don't forget to go out and enjoy the money you've made thanks to BHW. Yesterday I was sitting in my office at 2 o'clock in the night and realized that I didn't see much of the world/friends/family for the past 3 months. Been doing 15 hour days non-stop because NitroCan (another member here) and I are working our balls off to launch a brand new PPD network. Anyways, I know there are lots of other people here on BHW also working hard to succeed in life. I'm just gonna head out with the wife and enjoy a cold beer in the sun..
    Here's to all of you guys.. :beer:

    Let money be your money motivation, not your downfall!

    I don't worry about summer ending, if you're successful enough at IM you can go somewhere where it feels like summer never ends!

    Funny you should mention this because right before I created this thread I was putting the finishing touches on the promo thread we'll be launching here on BHW in the near future.. I mention the recent influx of cheap and amateuristic ppd networks that seem to pop up everywhere nowadays. I don't want to call out any names out of respect but I'm sure most of you know which ones I'm referring to. Anyway, I can garantuee you that it won't be anything like that.. There's too much on the line for both NitroCan and me. But let's not turn this into self promotion. ;-)

    I actually hope the opposite. I don't mind working 15 hours a day, as long as it has a purpose and I know I'm doing good things.

    I will actually worry about that when I'm 25+. Right now I'll just work like a madman so when that time comes, I can do whatever I want :) And I'm actually having fun while working! Because when you do something you love (in my case, coding) then you wouldn't think of having fun outside :) Although I kinda missed doing those stuff.

    Exactly how I feel too but the thing that bothers me most is the toll it takes on my wife.. I've been a business owner before, heating engineering company, and was working the really hard too. But somehow I found it easier to let go of work then, when compared to IM now. I eat, sleep and breath IM.. never had that before. But I take it that it means I'm really enjoying IM and this is what I was meant to do. And the fact is, life passes by
