    When your friends/family ask you what you do for a living what do you say? I say I do advertising for a company, which is technically true (I do CPA) what about you all?

    It's simple: online advertising for some companies.

    I think my boss is now fully aware that I make more money than he does. My go-to is "branding on the side for high level clients, and a bunch of projects I do for myself".

    Another good one I use from time to time is a "professional surfer, riding the swells of the SERPs". But that just makes me sound like a moron.

    I tell them the truth. I sign on every other Tuesday, spend my time in bed smoking pot and fucking my fat bird, trying to get her pregnant for the Ninth time so we get a bigger cheque and bigger house.

    They all real jealous coz they only got six kids.

    Well, at first I gave a couple sentence explanation, but that would go over people's heads. Now I simply say "website stuff".

    I explain that I rank websites and get money when my visitors clicks ads. It's that simple. But I don't do ads at all.

    My mom thinks I am scamming people and I am also being scammed at the same time
    My dad doesnt really care and just pretends to be interested
    My friends think I'm some kind of spooky 1337 hacker

    I imagine you with a surfer body and a long blonde wavy hair, with a joint in your hand.
