Whats funny about IM is that even when you are making good money and your friends and family see the money rolling in, yet they still don't think its legitimate enough because they just don't understand. Its not your standard 9-5 job that everybody is used to so they think that you are just not doing enough with your life or you are lazy. If they could only see the amount of time and effort that IMers put into this work then they would finally understand. Yes this looks like a facebook post but I just needed a place to vent a bit. All I can say is that I am glad that I found this forum because without it I would not be in this position right now and I would probably be working at Mcdonalds like most of my friends.
