    I am afraid I am going to dropout of my college this semester as I am in probation.
    So if I do drop-out,do you think I can be successful in my life,get a life,find a girl and in the future spend my rest of my life as an internet marketer alone and live as a successful college dropout?
    I am just afraid if this can be seen as a lifetime opportunity instead of a part time opportunity.I love doing IM,so do you think I will be a successful person in my life?
    Please help me as I am running out of options,thanks

    Do you mean to say I cannot be a successful Internet marketer or I cant be successful in my life even if I become successful in IM.
    What about various successful college drop-outs who changed the world like Steve Jobs?

    You can not because you come and ask such questions on an internet board. It depends on the person. If you are in a college and thinking about dropping out I doubt you will be successful in IM. It's your attitude and self discipline.

    Don't worry about dropping out of college. Maybe that was just not your thing.

    Find something that interests you (IM) and then make a plan and turn it into a business.

    Some of the worlds richest and most respected entrepreneurs dropped out of school or college.

    Pick yourself up and give yourself a slap!

    I agree.

    Says more about your character when you 1. Don't see something through. But hey, Maybe it wasn't right for you, so this one is excusable. But 2. You ask for life advice on an internet chat board.

    Read any of the threads on here about people discussing whether to go to college, and you will likely find your answer.

    If you have to ask if you are going to be successful in anything then you are already failing.

    Success is a mindset.

    You have to KNOW you are going to be successful.. not ASK if you ever will be

    College degrees are overrated. It will help you join a great company where you can slog and make the company more successful. 99% of people who work in a company are in it for a paycheck and not for serious personal growth.

    Unless you have the ambition to become CEO or go big working for a company, IM is not a bad route at all because you are building on your personal wealth all the time. Success is not guaranteed and you will probably have to work harder than what you would do at a job.

    Most importantly, you need more self belief. How do you expect a forum to tell you if you will be successful or not with IM as a way of living your life. That is up to you buddy. Do it and see for yourself. It all really depends on you.

    Hi There,

    There is no shame in dropping out, I did this as well!!!

    That piece of paper that you get when you finish your studies means squat diddly

    A true warrior knows where to chose his battles to fight.

    After dropping out I got into IT and at my zenith I was earning about 100K GBP a year as an IT consultant and drove a nice new mercedes E class (then I got burnt out, but thats another story and now I ride on buses, trains and taxis:) !!!). This may not sound very much compared to some IM or BH gurus, but it was alot to me and probably millions of others.

    I don't earn nearly as much as that right now, but I'm happier now than I ave ever been and I feel free. Chin up make a decision decision and stick to it nd have the courage of your convictions and you'll be alright.


    Its just a piece of paper I could wipe my ass with!!!

    Thats my tuppence, good luck my friend.

    Warmest Regards,

    Dave

    I know high school kids who make very nice cash from IM.
    its not related if you're a graduate or not, u just need to "fit" into the industry.

    although, college, will broaden your horizons (which won't be interent related) and you might get laid by hot chicks during that period of time :)

    No, but if you manage to make a large amount of money and then invest all that money into secure things then you might be able to live on it.

    Depends on how much you are making right now... If you make few hundred/day save up a little, buy a house, buy a car and THEN drop out... Once you have a house and a car, you can live of of 1000/month very easily and it shouldn't be too hard to earn that.
    (i don't mean get a loan, save up and buy with cash so its yours and not bank's)
