Hello there! Been into IM for about 5 years, but the first 3 years I was dabbling and I've been more serious the last 2 years. I do mostly white hat stuff now and starting to make some decent money. Not enough yet, but getting there. I live in Europe, taxes are high, everything is expensive, thinking about moving somewhere else. It helps to have an online income source that can come with me wherever I go, that's part of why I am into IM.
