    I've been an outside lurker to BHW on and off for four or five years. I often would circle back and sift through top posts to find interesting strategies. In the last week, my fiance lost his job and I'm looking to turn up my IM skills and start supporting our financial dreams. That brings me to why I signed up and what I'm here for.

    I hope I can contribute as much as I take. My background is in white hat social strategy with some gray mixed in. I've always had to be careful with my IM strategies at the 9-5. Now that I'm branching off, I'm excited to learn.

    Welcome at last.

    Are you still doing the 9-5, out of interest ?

    Good luck, don't quit your job yet. IM takes time and money.

    Welcome welcome welcome! Im still at the 9-5 myself, having to squeeze in IM on the down low.

    Best of luck and I look forward to seeing what you add to the community :)

    Hahaha. No. That's isn't the plan. I'll keep the stable income then keep up with IM as the side hustle. The other half will be the stay-at-home dad until I can pass things off.

    Yes. 9-5 is a super creating marketing position at a ski resort. Sometimes I have to remind myself that what I'm doing is work, not just fun. But it's a ski resort job, and those don't exactly pay the bills. That's what brings me here.

    I just purchased GramDominator. I'm going to start with an IG journey and see where that takes me. I'm also interested in affiliates, authority sites, Facebook groups, and Pinterest.

    Hey,
    Not sure how old you are but grab the chance to enjoy the fun jobs, before life becomes to hectic with kids etc.
    Guy I used to drink with back in the day had 2 years as a ski instructor around Europe and loved it, including the social life. Best years of his life he said.

    Yes, they totally get it. My job is has one foot in the corporate world and one foot in the ski world. It's enough to sustain a family as long as there's a second income coming in too. That's where IM is coming. And you're friends are right. The years I was an instructor just after college were the most fun I ever had. My liver hates me for it now.

    You need to be well prepared to overcome job pay by IM,but if your experienced maybe easier.

    I'm in it for the long haul... plus we live a small life and the house is paid for. $100/day is my first goal. Is that reasonable?
