    Just want to ask if there is a big majority here that are unemployed and doing IM for a living, especially if you're over 25-30.

    Tell your story, for how long you've been doing it and what were the ups and downs?

    I am employed and doing IM for an IT company.

    I started from articles, doing some of my own projects (which failed miserably) and basic business degree. Now I am doing content management and SMM.

    I guess I didn't expressed myself right. My apologies, I am not a native english speaker.

    What I meant by saying an unemployed person doing IM for a living was someone making money online as the only source of income.




    Nice, I hope you are doing great now :)

    My idea for employment was a person that is working for a company/another person.
    I guess I got it wrong all the way until now.

    Seems like I haven't received any serious reply but one, not that I expected anything else from BHW.

    That's what happens when you post an overdone thread with a vague shit question.

    But to add something constructive, I could easily leave my 9-5 and do my ORM business full time. I have no interest in doing that, though. I enjoy the friendships and skills I get from my day job, it keeps me productive, is a great backup in case something happens with my business, and it's very low stress knowing that if something happens to my day job I have a fallback.
