    Interested in some responses and opinions.

    Jeeze, 12k a month to live comfortably? For me probably only around 3k to live comfortably.​ Definitely not complacent with that though.

    6k to live where I live - after taxes and expenses

    that does not include going out every night though - that's to live just a normal type comfortable life.

    I guess comfortably is relative. I'm with your 12k. The last two years I've been all over the place up and down. Right now at 6k+ a month things are pretty tight. At 12k it was ok.

    I always think worst situations. ie if I scrape by but still have a place to live with my girlfriend and I can eat, that's "comfortable." Including car and phone. Total about $2500 I guess. However, bare minimum living would be like $1900 but certainly wouldn't be a happy lifestyle for me.

    Room to rent in a shared house inc utilities: £400/month.
    Food & drink: £225/month
    Social: £200/month
    Public transport: £100/month
    Misc: £100 / month

    Total: £1025/month / $1700 USD/month

    Would give one a very basic but pleasant existence in Northern England :)

    Brand new here so currently have $0 income from IM but this forum is full of amazing ideas that can be twist into something much larger.
    I think that I would be comfortable with around $3.5k/month (I know this may take 6-12 months to achieve but im determined to make it happen!)

    Prior the G updates i made about 8k a month and after the changes i dropped to about $1500.

    I worked my ass off and now i am back to about 7k.

    My goal is 10k in february cause i want to invest in other things then online marketing.

    Everything above that would mean more money to save for surviving other weird algorythm changes since i am a full time IM.

    Man I would like to know how you all make so much. I can live well off 3k a month but hell I can even get anything. And I have been trying methods left and right.

    Happy at 12k - got by on $4500 for a year - no fun at all - barely surviving on 6k - need 10k to live a stress free live. Anything over 12k would stay in the company account to build a bigger monster.

    My goal, and always has been is £30K a month, in between at the mo. Simply because I know for a fact that people do not really make this much money a month doing as little as I do in a normal 40 hour job.

    I live on between 6-10k a month IM income and 3-5k a month investment income I live comfortably, I also live in the middle of nowhere where cost of living is cheap.
