    I am just getting frustrated probably, but I am curious; is there anyone on here making significant money? When I say significant, I mean $100,000 annually or more? I really enjoy computers and making money, but I am just not going to invest time into something that doesn't make me more money than I am currently making in the healthcare field. Give me hope that there is good money here.

    Yes you can make really good money from this.

    Is it something that is going to happen over night? NO
    Is anyone going to tell you really how to do it? NO

    You will spend first several months reading and trying things out and spending money. Most people really dont start making money until 6 to 8 months down the road. I would say about 90% if not more that start trying to make money only stop after the first two months as they really dont have the money to invest and learn and try new things.

    Set up a game plan. Stick to it and dont stop and you will make money.

    Best of luck to you.

    Dude, really? Of course people are making money here but with that attitude you will likely quit long before you even had a chance. People are making money here and there are people who are making no money. Depends how bad you want something, how good you are at teaching yourself, and the time energy and patience you are willing to put up with. If you already have your doubts and already looking for someone to hold your hand to tell you everything will be okay, I would say stick to your day job and the security. Just being honest :)

    My advice, stick to your "healthcare field".

    There are people who make way more than 100k/year. But it takes dedication and focus to make good money with IM.

    To make money you have to invest money, time and have patience. Its not an overnite job. Sometimes takes months before you see your first $.

    No, that's exactly what I need....honesty. It's not that I don't have the money or ability. I am just curious, is it only a select few that make good money online? I'm not looking for millions....ever; I know that is a VERY difficult achievement. I am just looking forward to better and from home. I don't like to "go" to work. I simply don't want to answer to anyone but me, but I need to make more than I am right now to be happy. What I am asking is: Can I seriously make that kind of money online by working as much as I do right now?

    Everytime I see this it reminds me of doctors still in college. You can imagine that they have to go through 7yrs of college education and more years before they are qualified. But I never hear them asking, "does this doctor thing ever make money?'

    So its not IM, but rather an attitude problem. Its hard work and many don't want to believe how hard they will have to work to be wealthy.

    But, with enough dedication and focus, is that a select few? I am a nurse in the "healthcare field" and it is very difficult. I love hard work! I am just tired of answering to someone other than me.

    I found working from the house was not the best option for me years ago when i said i am done with the corp world. I tried working form home but never really got anything done. Plus the wife always wanted crap done.
    As soon as i went out and got a small office this is when things really took off for me.

    I now own several companies and i now just get to play online and have fun.

    The figure is achievable but no one can specify how soon you will be able to make that much money. Chances are that you might be struggling to make few hundred dollars a month after a year, or chances are that you might have already attained your dream figure after a year. There is no telling how far a person can go. So,no one can really tell how far you can go with your IM journey. That being said, the size of your success also depends upon the size of your belief. If you don't give up after repeated failures, you will be able to quit your 9-5 job some day or the other.

    Your best bet would be to devote few hours everyday towards your IM dream (while sticking to your regular job) and decide for yourself in the next six months from now if its worth pursuing this thing or not.

    Another suGgestion would be, don't quit before trying. "You miss 100% of the shots you never take" So, give it a shot.

    Yes, you can. But it really may not be your kind of thing. I have seen many people who thought they wanted it and when it really came down to it, they weren't willing to sacrifice. If you are willing to sacrifice everything you have to get to where you want to be, then yes, you will be successful. But, wondering if this is legit and wondering if only the "elite" can make it online is the wrong mentaility.

    This is why we have entrepreneurs and why we have people who work for entrepreneurs. Entrepreneurs and are those who don't think they just do. They do not worry about the outcome, they make the outcome.

    I can tell you that I am not making a lot of money, but I am so feaking close. But when I went into IM, I didn't think about it, I just did it and figured I would learn on the way and I was going to make it happen. If you honestly need someone to tell you if you should do it then you prob shouldnt do it. Many many people fail. Why? Because they expect so much so soon. I have had two close friends give up after three months of this because they simply were not cut out for it.

    If you are willing to sacrifice the things you like to do now, the money you make now, long nights with no sleep, many hours of banging your head against the wall, and no one hundred percent guarantee that you will even make one single dime, then I would say you will succeed no matter what.

    If IM was a horse race and I had to pick a winner, I wouldn't be picking the candidate who needed a pep talk and reassurance to put their tippy-toe in the water.

    You have to learn to program, learn to script, learn how to use programs, learn what works, crash and burn several times learning what doesn't work, sling mud at the wall see what sticks, sling mud at the wall some more when nothing sticks.

    Background in website creation, journalism, programming, using computer programs with a stiff learning curve. You can't even effectively delegate that stuff until you've done it yourself and know what results you can expect by taking any number of different strategies.

    Then ... even after you know it all, you still need the work ethic to actually do it, which is where many people fail.

    Nearly everyone who graduates college with the right courses can get a job in the health care field. Most people who poke at IM with a stick won't make anything near close enough to pay all the bills.

    But yes, there's good money in IM, and once you're making good money it is typically residual and requires little maintenance.

    NO! THERE IS NO MONEY IN THE INTERNETS!!

    I suggest you stick with whatever it is your doing right now that makes you money.

    If you need to ask for a pep talk this isn't for you. IM is for people who work tirelessly through failure and work even harder when they see success (or pay others to work harder for them). It is for people who have a vision of what they want and they figure out a way to make it happen. It is not for people who want to be spoon fed for free and it is not for people who need to be told that it is worth their while.

    This game needs brain and heart. You will see if you have it after 2 months in IM.

    If you dont, just keep your daytime job.
