    I mean not every person living on this planet but everyone who is interested in doing it even though they are not from its related field.

    The real question should be "Is it for you/me even you are not studying business or dont have a marketer mind?"

    I, my self is a computer engg student, and my English is not even good, hell i didn't even complete my high school from English medium.
    And that make me scare a little, make me think is it for me?
    I have never took any business/advertising classes, not even touched any book apart from some shitty WSO's.

    But i get relief when i see graph of my monthly earning, which is only going up.
    I am passionate about it, saw many ups and downs in last 3 years, I read BHW, I understand every IM thread, I experimented, Failed many times but never thought about giving up.

    But i am still worried, we are (peoples like me) dependent on Search engines, affiliate networks and our rankings. Which can disappear in no time and all you go to is 0.

    I don't call myself successful yet, because i am not yet.

    But i want to hear you guys success who don't have any marketing degree or background. Just a clean knowledge from internet and BHW.
    I will appreciate you guy's replies, hope they will make me relief and motivate me to do my shits without questions.

    Yeah, IM is for everyone who is passionate about it. No matter what is the background of the person, I am also a student from india, I am just 16, but I can say that I am IM guy. I learned majority of things from BHW and also didn't took any classes for these things. All you need is to be passionate about the thing which you are doing, and you need to be hard worker, that's it!

    I don't think IM is for everyone but I do think everyone could make some money through IM. Find something you are passionate about and there are multiple ways to make money of it.

    It's as simple as this :
    1. Would you like to work for yourself and define your income each month?
    2. Will you be willing to put in work no matter the circumstances or results?

    If your answer to those questions is yes,then you definitely are for Internet Marketing i.e You're thinking about yourself and personal freedom - financially. And,you don't mind working long hours to see the results that you wanna see.
    Anyone with this mindset is definitely for IM.

    If you're too half-arsed to even read threads or do some research then you definitely don't belong in this field.
    That's what I think. :)

    Nope.

    Besides, business school is fun for the drinking, but not useful for the learning. I learn by doing, not listening to how someone would do it if they actually tried once in their lifetime.

    It´s not for everyone. First of all, they say only 3% of ppl getting into IM get to live out of IM in the long run.

    An then there is another factor. How much are your expectations? Don´t get my wrong, but it´s not the same to make 1k net in some countries and others. For some countries, 1k net USD you live like a king, and others countries with that money, you are way better paid in a 9-6 shitty office middle class job.

    In IM it doesn't matter what country you live in as long as you understand English the only limit in IM is yourself and your skills
    You can earn good amount by not doing anything after setting everything up automatic however few months later you could also bust your ass working 10hours/day just to earn peanuts,so IM is definitely not for everyone
    I choose IM as my lifestyle and not even looking back however I could have chosen the wrong turn, only time will tell

    Dude just go to college and get a degree... I'm so done with this bullshit.

    You know, even Bill Gates was a baby at one point. Things happened in his life that molded him into the genius he is.

    It was a constant process for him.

    You don't just go to the Internet Marketing Store and buy a pill and take it every day.

    Actually you can but they cost a lot. Are you ready to make that kind of investment? Let us know in 15 minutes or less.

    I never said i am going to leave my college, and wont even if i earn more than 9-5 job.
    Having a college degree will be my life achievement even though i am not going to use it. Every friend of mine only talk about how and where they want to job and ask me too and my answer was always "Complete my studies, stick to IM and have my own local business" and the answer has not changed from last 2 years.

    Super good question OP.

    I often think about this question from time to time.

    At the very least, I recommend that people get a college degree. you dont have to use it, but its a great "backup plan".

    About a year and a half ago, I was all about IM. i told everyone college is for chumps. IM all the way. I dropped out of college and pursued my interest in IM. So what happened?

    As you could probably suspect, life happened. Hit with an update, took my entire business down to the ground. I started collecting debt and worked night and day to try and rebuild my IM profit streams.

    You see, I hadn't learned about the risks of IM, diversifying my income, or how to make smart long-term financial decisions.

    I think IM is for people who are persistent, stubborn, and dedicated. However, there are going to be highs and lows within your revenue streams. You need to prepare for the worst at the best times.

    The thing with IM is I don't believe its possible to have a natural talent for getting good results, no one is a natural at making people complete their CPA bullshit or buy their CB products...

    All results are from hardwork and testing none stop. There are no shortcuts, no easy paths to take and you will either make it or you won't... and you probably won't as most don't.

    But don't let that put you off. I have very very limited IM experience, I'm lazy and can earn money with different things which I find easier, but those that make IM work can make anything work and I'm jelly of that.

    Anyone can do IM for themselves, but doing IM for other people may not be for everyone. Its so much easier to build up a website and do promoting for it if you are passionate about that subject.
