    Hi guys,

    Just looking for inspiration, I'm a little down today since I had a bad weekend.

    I've become a little disillusioned with IM.

    You have a lot of people saying you cannot do a job and do IM at the same time, you're not a real SEO/IM rockstar unless you are doing IM full time according to some people.

    But how is this possible? I mean I am not expecting to just make money overnight, I will probably need 6 months to a year to build my empire before it can support me right?

    So why are fat potato headed people saying these mean things on twitter?

    Can I do IM and have a job at the same time? Are there any success stories here?

    Thank you

    You gotta have thick skin for this world, kid.

    It's gonna be hard, it's gonna be tough, if you let twitter make you cry you don't have enough.

    I have a "job" and I do IM on some of my sites and for others. Been this way for 20+ years, with the exception of a few years where I took on big projects that made me have to pause IM. Otherwise I do it cuz I like it, IM is what I like doing, getting a method right and seeing it work is the biggest reward there is for me.

    If you have a "real" job stick to it and do IM on side untill you are 100% certain you can go IM full time.

    i wouldn't bother , just get on with building your Empire, if you get involved in an online arguement then you'll spend more time doing that than working on your project, it'll eat you up. Ignore them and get on with it

    Of course you can work and do IM. The alternative is you quit your job some you have zero income then you work full time on learning IM whilst living on nothing.

    Which one sounds more sensible?

    I did full time income in my 3rd month online so it's 100% possible. It's all in your mindset and how hard you want to work to achieve something.

    Because he knows you can. Many can. And he's not feeling good about the competition.

    I pondered that same question 4 years ago. Took me about 3 years to start earning proper money after soaking up info from BHW.

    Its more than possible if you put the time in.

    If you study for a degree, you would need to be dedicated and thorougly research your subject, same applies to IM, don't buy sh++y guru products and expect to make serious bank overnight, instead read, read some more, research and nail down exactly what you are going to do. Write it down, make notes, plan it all out and then go for it.

    Don't let other discourage you. Someone could sit here and tell my I am stupid and my methods were designed to fail. Of course I know that is not true and I will keep doing my thing. Of course im making money now so it helps, but its too early to say that it is going to last.

    I am doing IM and working right now, just started the job but got a bit of time to spend there no matter how good my internet projects do. I recommend that if someone is starting out and not super young or unable to work / in school, to have a job as long as you need to. The average employee works 6-8 hours a day, with up to 10 or 12 for harder jobs.

    That leaves another 12-16 hours of the day, Lets set aside 8 for sleep just to be reasonable, when really you should be fine with 6 or 7 if you really need to create extra time. Set aside an hour or 2 extra for resting, and you should still have a few hours a day to work on IM even days you work. On days off you can get more done. If you dont believe in yourself or your goals others can deter you, when really they should only be there to challenge and smarten you up.

    There are so many losers out there that will try to pull you down with them. When I started out, 90% of the people that I knew not only did not support me, they laughed at me too. Now I make more in a month what they make in a year and it is embarrassing for me to listen how their tones have changed.

    Like for example, a very close friend of mine, after hearing what I want to do (IM essentially), said ¨just do not ask me for money once you need it¨. Not only did he not believe in my ideas, he decided to be condescending about it too. He recently found out that I have been doing very well, and he has been writing to me like we have not just not talked for several years, and calling me a good friend. What?

    He does some internship at some B company.

    The good thing is that you will see who truly supports you and who does not, even in your family.

    Everything is possible with hard work.

    I'm in the same boat as you bro. Don't let that giving-up feeling get to you. I've been working my ass off in IM along with my job. Be patient. Set a small goal at first. That's what I did. Been 3 months since I started to actually work. Made around $62 as of now. I'm confident that if scaled up, I might be making more. That is the only thing which keeps me going. Wish you the best for your IM endeavors. Cheers!
