    Hello BHW:

    Two Simple Questions:

    1) How many IM projects you failed until success?
    2) How many months (or years) took you to be sucess in IM?

    success = achieve your $ goals and live entirely from internet business.

    1) Probably around 5-7 projects before my most successful project to date.
    2) It took me around 1-2 years or so as I started some BSTs here in BHW (now they are all closed :) ) and you can even read how it went for me in these 2 journey threads :)

    How long will it take me to $100/day? [YT+PPD and more methods!!]
    An "Authority" Site and a "Community" Site to $350/day by December 2015!

    After these threads it was all about creating more projects and expanding :)

    Heck, you can even see in my signature or in (http://b.royserpa.com) that I'm selling one of my businesses that has generated 5 figures since last july :)

    It's all about growing and expanding OP!

    3-5 projects failed... I lost $1000+ and 2 years passed before I became more wise regarding the IM world.

    Failure is inevitable.

    Sometimes they're small, and sometimes they're large; but even the most successful people have to deal with it throughout their lives.

    I failed a couple of time because of improper planning. It took me 3 years to get success, and since then I have been doing fantastically well!

    If you fail. Don't give up! Get up and try again, again again and again!

    It is hard to say. Had ups and downs. But as they all say. find something you are passionate about. Now I was not passionate about gambling, but I had blew more than my fair share to know about it.

    However I had spent years on "IM" "SEO", before I combined my IM / SEO skills to my gambling addiction, so it is hard to say.

    But once combined, it sort of took off.

    Like most people have said, Its not easy at all when you are new and trying to get a hang of everything.To start a new project requires more time and effort, and when it fails, its hard to start a new one.But thanks to the great foum BHW.New posts keep you inspired to do more.
    Back then I used to make pennies and give up when they dont grow to treasures fast.Now I know better that when you plant the seed you gotta wait and let it grow.Before you reap the fruits.Its always applicable in most ventures.Apart from extreme core BH methods, most methods require time.One thing a newbie tends not to have.

    As for me,

    1) about 40
    2) about 3 years

    Now I sell paypal and ebay accounts and facebook ads accounts to big buyers.Also rent ads accounts.These bring very sufficient daily and monthly incomes

    Tried doing it a few years ago failed.
    Got back this year and so far seeing better results. Focused on better goals and made better plans.
    Going slow right now but so far pretty decent

    My first IM project did 5k profit in the first month, I just happened upon a niche that was growing and non competitive at the time. Now that same niche is ridiculously crowded.

    Over the span of 5-6 years I had tried and failed with well over 25 different ideas and projects, sometimes running 5-7 at one time. I consider "failed" to be not recouping any investment of time within one year, and "catastrophic" to be not recouping any investment of my money. Plenty of both. Maybe one or two successes, but they were very blackhat and very short term.

    I finally found some success in my reputation management firm that started a few years back, and it's been paying off my wife's medical school loans ever since. I'm utilizing occasional downtime to practice full stack web development coding skills and building a portfolio for a branding company I'd like to begin and go full time with alongside ORM.
