    Ok, so this is how it all started. Ive been on bhw since July, and I can seriously can call this place my home. Definitly the best place on the internet I have ever seen. I love coming to this site every day, and learning something new. Theres so many members out here, and they are all helpful. But Im in a serious situation now. My dad had a pointless fight with me this morning. He says that I aint earning jack shit, that im earning pennies by the hour. That I will never be successful doing what I am doing (which is e-pimping, will discuss more of that later on). Ill never be successful in life, and that my grades are shitty cause he never sees me doing my homework even though my grades are fine. He gave me all the lecture, and I didnt even say anything to him.

    But yeah, I have been doing epimpin for about 3 months, day and night. At first, I started doing it manually. Made some money off of that, but definitly not enough. So, I have been researching for the last 2 months on how to automate this. And to be honest, I made my FIRST auto sale just yesterday, so that cheered me up a little bit. I havent been making enough doing this, I have been working my ass off, day and night. One time I sat for 14 hours straight w/o any breaks and only made 40 bucks off of it from cu.

    I have been looking at CPA, and it seems easier. But I dont know what to do. He really depressed me a lot this morning. He made me feel like Im some lowlife pos. I want to jv with someone that is good in anything. Im willing to take 30% and you keep 70%. Im willing to do anything, I just want to learn it.

    Now dont think Im some noob, I DONT want to be spoon fed, just led to the right direction. I want to prove him that hes VERY wrong, and I want him to regret what he did to me. And Im willing to do anything to make that happen :)

    you know what? fuck what he thinks.

    never let anyone else tell you something isn't going to work even when you fail and fail again. in anything in life that is not a sure thing you're going to fail many times before you succeed. sure if you want to go get a job you can do that and be what society calls "successful" but honestly I consider that a failure. You know what success is.

    Don't let anyone tell you you're not going to succeed. If they do then just block them out.

    forever, thats for sure. I went thru a lot of trial and error to even get to where I am right now. Exactly, I think that a job is a failure too. I dont want to be bossed around, told to do this and that, and get on my boss's dick just to get a raise. No way in hell im going to do that. Giving up is not an option for me, cause anyone can just throw the towel in and say "I quit".

    Hey man,

    Don't give up. My parents were the same, I'm always busy with other things and they said I might as well just get a job (I've been offered a few high paying jobs) until recently when I had a bit of a breakthrough and started making about $1k a week from one site.

    Anyway, I'm still really busy, but have a few simple ideas I simple don't have time for. If you fancy a JV I only do 50/50 so I'll up your percentage.

    I'll drop you a PM :) - EDIT - can't PM you for some reason, says you don't allow PM's?

    But bottom line is: don't give up. All it takes is one breakthrough.

    Be careful though man. right now you're living under your parents roof and it's easy to have that philosophy but remember it's just a philosophy it's not reality. When you get on your own don't NOT get a job because you don't want to. Sometimes you HAVE to get a job and do IM at the same time. Learn to see the line between your philosophy and reality.

    Yeah man agreed, just do what feels right for you, and try not to think too much about money being the object of everything. If you don't think money, you will get money.

    Important thing is that you enjoy it, if you enjoy working 14hours straight then do it!

    You have a good "I won't give up attitude", but don't be too hard on your parents.....almost nobody in the offline world understands what IM is and it's potential.

    Have you maybe thought about changing directions? Maybe looked at affilate marketing? You might want to go to the download section and check out the stuff by Kim Roach.

    Dude, sometimes you have to listen to your parents, sounds like he's just concerned because he sees you working constantly and making very little money. I don't think you're letting him know the potential of your business. So share the vision. If you saw your best friend busting his ass at mcdonalds for 150 a week wouldn't you chew him out if you thought he ha more potential? But for all you know he could be working towards taking over that franchise.

    Get away from e-whoring. If you're working 14 hours a day and only making $40 hell, you could have made more rewriting articles for AC. E-whoring won't bring much income unless you have some super unique campaign (which is bound to be stolen by someone) or you can post 25+ ads per day.

    Dabble into CPA. I'm only 15, and my dad once lectured me on morals when I told of him my CL campaign. I mean, if people are gullible enough to sign up under an aff link, it might as well be under mine.

    By the way, following any kind of philosophy is dangerous. Even the "never give up" philosophy can be dangerous too. Don't always want to live your life with no boss, as it could lead to your downfall. Would I work for a boss, but make 10x what I'm making right now? Sure! There's absolutely nothing wrong with having a boss, and if you do your job you won't get fired. Money is money, boss or not. But because IM brings substantially more income than a regular 9-5 job can, I'd take IM over a 9-5 any day. I still have to refine and scale up though.

    Yeah, just like MicroSal said, I do listen to both of them. Its just that he was bursting at me for no reason. Even though i showed him the potential of this whole thing. IDK, it was out of nowhere haha

    Wow, gbmack, 15? Another young member. I wish my 15 year old neighbor was more like you. He just plays with broken tree branches and spare tires and trash can lids in his backyard. Whenever I bring a chick home it's embarrassing.
