    Hey guys so every time I spend the weekend at my girlfriends house I bring my computer with me to continue to work on a couple projects. She currently does not have a job so im thinking about teaching her about internet marketing so she will understand why I am so dedicated. Anyways do you guys think this is a good idea? If so how should I start her out?

    Agreed. I went through this with an ex. When you work, work hard and get your stuff done but you have to have balance. I wouldnt bring your comp to her place. She will get sick of that and you very fast. Been there done that.

    You stop being yourself and doing the stuff you like, she'll drop you.

    Stick to your guns, if she likes you she'll stay.

    Don't spend time trying to teach her. Wait until you get married. LOL! If she doesn't have the right frame of mind it will never work. Just spend time with her and stay off the lappy.

    Only teach those who are truly interested in learning... I'm trying to push a few of my long time friends into IM, hell even low end development (wordpress), but they're so resistant to learning because they don't care. I care. Thats the problem, they have to care first. Wait for them to ask you, then I say share and share alike!

    NEVER give your girlfriend info on your career.
    Minimum = she knows you do "internet stuff" (no offense to your girlfriend but rarely do you find someone who gives a fuck about small details)

    This is different from working at a "employee" type of job.
    If things go south in your relationship, she'll use the info against you. If you make it seem easy, she'll emotionally rip you to shreds.

    Never change who you are for someone else. When people make drastic compromises it usually ends up in major resentment.

    I have friends that sold their businesses and joined the 9-5 working stiff world because their wives and girlfriends wanted them to. Guess what: they are all divorced now and unhappy.

    Girls come and go....a job/career you love doesn't. Toss the weight over the side of the boat and focus on making money. When YOU are happy everything will fall into place.

    You should stop bringing your computer over to her house man. You wouldn't like it if was the other way around. I know it's hard to stay away from it, but it's for the best.. it's only a couple of days, just enjoy your weekends and get back to it on Monday. I used to do the exact same and my bird would get right pissed off..

    If she was telling me to quit it altogether.. now that be different story!

    If shes unemployed and wants to earn money (she should), then it's better for her to just get a regular job. You life may get frustrating if you're both doing IM.

    It highly depends on what she really likes, if she is interested in, why not.

    If she is just annoyed because you are doing it, then you have my answer.

    Precisely.

    All you need is to be making money, she has trouble earning money with it and suddenly BAM...

    "why am I not making money and you are? so you're saying I'm stupid? well at least (entire another male friends name here) has a REAL job and never makes me feel stupid"

    You'll save yourself a murder charge. Just leave the two worlds separate until she shows you she's as driven as you.

    But really though maybe you shouldn't bring your computer over the weekends, she probably wants you to spend time with her so she won't keep nagging at you

    There is always a need to separate work and pleasure. When you are with her, be with her. There will be a time when you look back and realized you could have had a better time not working. However, if she does genuinely want to learn, show her!
