    just curious and kind of want to get a ratio going here about how many on this site have IM for a main source of income.


    this doesnt neccesarilly mean that its your one and only job. Just if its more income than you make doing anything else.

    If I made as much as my 9-5 with IM (I make about 30% of it) that would be great

    When you start you will understand how? but I could tell you, someday will make and someday you won't. so it is natural but you will get tension, worry and discourage. This is my experienced. btw you'll loose some $$ too. good luck

    IM is not yet my main source of income.

    I make a healthy 10K USD/mo atm as an IT consultant, and IM is just a "side-project".

    But IM is playing a bigger and bigger role these days.

    In a not so distant future I'll retire from the IT world and live exclusively off of IM stuff.

    For me IM is like a God's Gift to me, here's what i do:

    1) Wake up at 10 AM.
    2)Start computer by 11 AM with a coffee.

    3) Close computer at 1 PM.

    4) Get out with friends (5 days a week) for movie, shopping, fairs etc

    5) Come back at 7PM, enjoy another cup of coffee.

    6) Start computer by 8 PM

    7) Browse Forums for 1 hr.

    8) Dinner with TV :)

    9) 10 PM to 12 AM, i deal with customer support, programmers and some new projects!



    That's the life i have imagined. Almost 3-4hrs of work and rest day is fun day!

    I love IM, can't say more then that.

    Also, every month i make one trip out of station (like Snow area in summers and beach in winters)

    Thanks,
    Carson

    It's close to exceeding but my other business is reliable and long term, IM could go down anyday in my mind or my methods and tools could just die and I'd have to start over.

    I don't have a part time job as a result of my earnings through internet marketing. Going to hurt me when I apply for internships likely though.
