    I was curious to know that how many people do IM solely as a profession !?
    And if you don't mind, How much do you make through it annually !?

    Lol. Joking apart, $500 a day isn't much when you have overheads and staff to pay!

    Full time IM started with a handful of clients, one of them did so well he brought me on full time. About 6 figures annually, give or take.

    If one person jokes, there's no need to follow him, OP opened this thread hoping for honest answers, not sarcasm or not-funny-at-all jokes.

    In a sense it's a stupid question, thats why there is so many stupid answers. Who cares how much others make, I only care about my earnings.

    Newbies always want to see high earnings, that inspires them, but inspiration and motivation for work are two different things, so, Orbit is right, stop asking us, go and make money urself, than post it, you can have my +rep than : )

    For tax purposes, like Meathead and Orbit, I only acknowledge receiving a few hundred dollars of income per year. Maybe even less. :)
