I discovered IM a lot of years back, I wasn't even 16 back then, but I never wanted to do anything because I was still in school and some people told me it's a waste of time.
But after I grow up, I discovered everything by my self, still, I was just looking for a regular job and never did anything until last year, when I just needed money.
I find it amazing how young most people started out. I still have to explain what I do in the most simplest way possible to my friends and family, yet people here were doing this stuff before they could legally buy a pack of smokes!
it probably started for me when i got an old pc and printer and started sending "official" looking letters to friends telling them they had to go to court, or the police where investigating them or they had been awarded nob-end of the year award. It was great to use a computer to be able to create things.
That creative side of IM was a big thing for me too. I was never an artist, a story teller or a musician. I made websites. And I think that should be considered in the same creative bracket!
I started at a pretty young age by starting a .blogspot blog that was a waste of time(I scraped content).I knew nothing about IM or that you can make money online.I was just blogging for my passion and for getting traffic just like that.I abandoned that when I read something about seo on some random blogs while searching for why I didn't get traffic.I had no idea of SEO yet but I knew that I should used unique content.I again started a blogspot as a passion and then blogged for some months and started reading various forums(DP) when I got an email from an android app named "Contactive" much like truecaller!
They paid $15 for a sponsored review from which I purchased a good domain!That is how it all started
Well i did start when i was 16 i guess, i tried to download some hack for game, (when i used to paly games) then i stumbled upon Sharecash download link and as i was outside USA i couldnt download it, and i did google it what the hell and why i cant download it, and i realized people do make money with that, so at that moment, money seemed cooler than games, and i did start with PPD and after i made 1st cash i never looked back
you are certainly right my friend.
It all started with a Dream.
i started im way back when i stumbled on an ebook written by chris carpenter."google cash" but i never really did make money with im until i took it up seriously late last year.now am doing ok.
I couldn't stand working 8 long hours every single day in order to provide for myself, so I looked into IM and the other various platforms of online money making.
The internet is a tool that everybody should make use of for revenue, but a lot of people just don't believe in it. The other day my mother told me that "I'd never make a career out of doing work online", all I did was laugh and tell her that there's people making thousands of dollars every single day.
Some people just can't work outside of their comfort zones, and some people absolutely NEED to do so.
I never got started
Mate. That is exactly how I feel. I still work a full-time job now, but my dream is to work from home full-time. I have done it before in the past but whenever I do I get calls every day from "concerned" family members who push me towards getting another job. People born pre-internet do not see the possibilities and think the only way to make money is to do 12 hour days, deep in some mine shaft developing a severe case of black lung. How little they know!
Oh well..I know very well this kind of feeling lol.
My friends and parents/relatives still ask me every time why I spend so much time online, they just don't seem to understand.
Every time I talk with them it's the same thing: 'you should look for a new job', 'hey, why didn't you send your CV to that logistics company?'.
But I don't really care, they will understand when I will succeed.
I have only been doing this for 18 months, but I was actually in my late 30s, working in a small town in China running a bar. We had our own micro-brewery, and our brewer (an Englishman) made more money from IM than he did from brewing. He started telling me all about it. I started spending all my free time researching, and now I am hooked. Not making much money at the moment, but each month looks a little better than the last, so feeling good about finding success in the next year or so.
Never too late to get started mate. Hopefully it all works well for you!
I almost forgot.
Last year and a few month this year, I worked with Amazon. I really, really worked hard, I completely dedicated my self into the job.
A manager/leader even talked with me and told me that he was stunned by me, that he will definitely put a good word for me with the others managers.
I was happy, I was earning decent money and everyone loved me there.
When my contract expired, they didn't renewed it...and they renewed many contracts of other people. I felt really bad, I worked at 110% and didn't got rewarded.. other people worked at 20% and got rewarded with new long term contracts.
I will never put my self into this kind of things anymore, I want to depend on my self, not other people.
