If you're looking to make internet marketing or SEO your full-time job, don't shoot for a ridiculous goal of $10,000 a month right off. Make your immediate goal to replace your current income. If you currently make $10.00 hr at your 9-5 job then you want to try and make $1,600 a month with IM. Once you hit that goal you can quit your 9-5 job if you choose. You will now have more "free time" to go after your next goal. Shoot for something like $3200 a month and so on. Be realistic with your goals and they will be a lot easier. Good luck.
