    I had a nice going full time offline job, but i thought i deserved more then that. My job was to handle a team on the operations and make sure I cheer them up and make sure they are working fine and happily.

    Then I decided to quit that job and take up my passion [internet marketing and web-mastering] full time. Now, its been 2 months and I have made almost nothing. I got only about $100 left in my bank account.

    I've seen some success for SEO with some of my website, but that didnt bring any good money [ i think it needs a lot more time]. I have contacted some offline clients for SEO.

    At this point, i am totally frustrated and discouraged. Which is resulting in fights and arguments with my family and girl friend. Please cheer me up.

    I know its kinda weird, but it really helps when people talk good with you.

    Never give up, We are all For you.. Some of us didnt even earn a year on IM but like you who has a passion for this might earn a thousand next month or even a week.. Just continue what your doing and check for errors that you might have gotten . Optimize your site if the conversion is really low.

    :)

    Read up on gold rush time... So many people went out, all thought they would be millionaires find tons of gold... 99% failed.... Its not much different on the internet, you just need to be better than the mass cos if it was easy everyone would do it successfully....

    No my friend, your not at the bottom! Now, at this time, you are so close to success, that you just have to continue working what you working at. You are so damn close that it's only a few days from money income.

    Believe me, been there done that, get back to work!

    Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn't learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn't learn a little, at least we didn't get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn't die; so, let us all be thankful.

    Why not offer your SEO service in Fiverr and make some quick bucks?

    You should consider asking for your job back or finding another job. It's always better to do online marketing as a hobby until it takes off. I hope this cheers you up.

    It does happen when you work online. I have been with this situation and eve though right now i am not earning any huge money from internet marketing. I have been successful getting some clients for SEO and SEM with forums and internet marketing Freelancing is my new profile from last two years.

    This is it bro, this is one of your important steps in the road to success.

    This is the time that you are suppose to give up, but you wont, and after you walk over these hard times you will be on your golden plane to success.

    First you go on youtube, and watch some motivational videos. Then search for "The secret" you can watch the first 20 min. on youtube but I suggest you download the whole movie, it can change your life.
    Write some sticker notes near your desk, hit them up with Success quotes, Motivational Quotes, etc. search on google for quotes.

    Then you have to improve the physical state of your body and mind. Start drinking enough fluids and properly hydrate your self. Drink only one coffee a day. Start running in the morning, and you don't need to push it a lot, just enough so you lose the negative energy. Meditation can help you a lot. I personally smoke weed, listen to some chill summer music, and in the background i turn on some "Waves splashing in the sand" music on low volume. (I'm experiencing heaven this way :) )

    Now this is the most important for you I guess. There are many working money making methods here. Do a little research, ask some people, find what suits you and start working with it. Remember, You must stick with one method at start. Jumping from one method to another just to see if it works, wont get you anywhere. Many people start with Fiverr, but it's your choice.

    I wish you good luck man, and never ever at any circumstance give up !!! never...

    Take a couple of days off,clear your head,then get back to it! I have learned that patience is key in this business. I made my first $1.67 on january 16th, five months after I purchased my first domain. So far this month, I've earned $250. Not much, but it's a progress and I've only just started.

    Ignore the naysayers, what do they know about IM? My GF and friends were busting my nuts all the time, but googling for something was mission impossible for them ffs

    star boy is right

    quitting your job to do internet marketing before your even earning anything in on the internet? umm i guess you learned the hard way that was STUPID! Ok im sure you realize that by now..

    so fixing the problem is your next step..

    try to get your job back, if you were a good hand they prolly let you come back.. i have done this before and it worked so worth a shot.

    get a job somewhere else

    or while your working on getting a job find a sure fire way to earn online.

    you need money dude so get a job just don't go suckin dick for it.. unless thats your thing.

    sorry i dont even know why im posting im just bored. anyways good luck man and make that money so you dont lose your gf.. cuz they like money and dick and if your missin one they seem to leave from my experience

    The situation is not good. You almost give up. Wake up! Do not limit you mind. Read this thread: http://bit.ly/olpaRH Read the elephant story too. Do you realy believe you can just quit you job and start making huge money so soon? Relax, breath deeper and keep working. If you fight with your girlfriend, only because you fail, so you are too weak person. Never fight with your family, only because money/job problems.

    No, you don't watch the secret. And you don't sit on youtube wasting your time.

    You take a day off, go to a place where you can think and you plan ahead in a positive mindset.

    You first say - OK, do I have enough skills to go on?
    And then you ask - Do I have the required resources to keep on doing this now.
    And then you think of the consequences of either of your decisions.
    And then you think about what's holding you back. Many people who are let alone working for themselves discover shady areas in themselves. Smoking all day, procrastinating, not waking up in the morning or anything else. You need to be honest with yourself.

    If you risk too much, you go find yourslef a descent job and keep doing what you like at the evening.
    If you risk a little - You go on.

    You certainly don't drain your bank account and then come to a discussion forum for encouragement.
    I don't know what's $100 for you. Where I'm at, $100 won't last for more than 3 days. If you are in the Philippines then you are doing pretty good I assume.

    Responsibility comes before anything when you are past your 18.

    Hey my friend,

    This state of mind is not helping you.

    Like someone else was saying you can be very close to the gold. Do not give up, take some easy steps like Fiverr jobs to bring you some money. Then when you will feel better your mind will be clear and more good ideas will come to you.

    Everything is MIND! :)

    These stories ALWAYS come from broke dudes that think they can quit their job and instantly bank using SEO.

    SEO is for people who have time and money. It's a suckers approach for guys short on experience and money.

    Start offering your SEO services to the world, and get a job.

    It takes a special kind of person to go from nothing to something in this game, and they NEVER do it playing the SEO Google dance.

    Good luck and please cheer up! :) :) :)
