    Hello!
    Im in IM from like 3 years. I made account on this forum and forget it, sterted playing poker and made some cash on it but finally got addicted and lost it all.
    Anyway, that's not the point of my post. I was making steady 10 - 15$ daily 2 months ago and i was happy.
    Then my whole business crashed. And then penguin came and taken what left. Since then i was trying to recover but without much success...
    Now i feel really bad. I can't earn anything. Im spending whole days at reading and thinking about new methods but have totally no money to invest so it's really hard.
    What should i do? I need some motivation. There's no option that i will quit IM but i can't earn single penny. My best days are between 1 and 5$, most of days i earn nothing.
    I got thru every single method at bhw and i have some ideas. But how to get money for start? Meaby someone have cash to invest and seeking JV?
    Thanks!

    Well... how are you paying for food? If you're living with parents or friends that are helping you survive, they could probably spot you some cash for a domain or two - but the reality is that if you're earning as little as you currently are, you need to get a regular job - like the rest of us that can't live off our IM incomes - yet. Do that and invest into IM until you can put 6 months income into the bank - then quit your day job.

    That 6 months income in the bank is your 'just in case a Penguin comes in and slaps all my income to shit reserve'. It doesn't have to be a Google algo change - anything can take a huge money maker and turn it into nada overnight - so you have to have a cash reserve to give you time to recover once you go full time IM.

    I'm not there yet - I still work full time as an IT Sys admin - I enjoy it but yea, I'd rather be doing IM full time. Just not there yet.

    Yeah, i live in Poland where you can survive for 15$ a day... and im 17 years old. I live with mom alone and im trying to help her (two months ago i was banking more than she at her daily job). She's really hard working person and i want to help.
    IM was my hope for life as i got tourette syndrome.. i've got quite much tics now but im aware that i can for example start screaming or something - i won't find 9-5 job anyway.
    Any advices how to get motivated and get some funds to invest? I know a bit of everything releated to IM, i spent whole last year reading and learning.
    I could do really black stuff and scam people but i won't. I just want to make our life better, but not at cost of someone else.
    Thanks!

    Being a Jr Vip and earning 5$ a day?? What are you doing with your life?? I could understand if you were a noob but you are not a noob so stop asking for money (which eventually could lead you to playing poker again) and start without any cash

    YT+CPA, ShareCash etc etc

    Excellent advice.

    OP, I was in a similar position about a month ago. My IM money making process came crashing down around me. I went from earning good $$$$ profit a month on auto-pilot, to earning nothing.

    I was gutted, but had luckily saved some $ each month to cover any emergency like this.

    My advice is, to get back on it as soon as possible. I waited a day, then got back on it- and have seen excellent progress this month.

    Keep on working hard, don't let your head drop.

    Im not asking for money and there's no way i will play poker again. I just ask for advice and JV if someone need some hard working and quite qualified person (pretty good english, at least basics skills of everything releated to im, know a bit of SEO and willing to work hard).
