    F*cking hell, its so amazing amazing "I have an amazing idea!, I am gonna make soooo much money! Never have to work again from this one idea!!! So easy to set up!!!" , then one hour later poof you just feel depressed because your idea didnt work, or something just went wrong............

    For 2 years its been like this emotional roller coaster, like when I made my first sale from a CPA, then finding that all my youtube accounts got suspened..... To thinking I was in the number one spot to finding out I got sandboxed.... To putting a site up with a great idea only to find out that it doesnt work....

    Today was one of those day, I thought I had something great, but it turned out to be nothing but sh*t, now I feel depressed and knocked out.
    I have trained my self to not get emotionally involved with the outcome, thats the best way so you dont get depressed or over joyed resulting in not doing the work.

    But sometimes i do get emotionally involved and when I do it sucks, like it sucks now. I need a 2 hour break...to recover.

    After trying all together around 20 sumthing ideas, I am actually doing alrite in IM averaging about $150 a day on auto pilot. But still its not enough to fully quit a job.

    PS

    I have a share comming soon on how to make cash, its my first one and should be good!

    $150 is enough to quit your day job. Then reinvest that time into earning more from your websites.

    Same shit happens to me.. get a great idea.. income triples.. start spending more.. site dies.. onto the next one. Just gotta keep on keeping on.

    That should be enough to quit most jobs if it's USD.

    I've been experiencing the same exact thing too. It's especially frustrating when you get something to work only to encounter obstacles that can't be overcome.

    this is why you diversify. so if one thing doesn't work out you have others to fall back on.

    That's totally right you have to treat IM as an investment (a high risk one). Put your eggs in many baskets and always build new income sources. So, if you loose something, you loose only ~20% of your income or something like this.
