    I'm putting all my efforts into offline ventures at the moment, so this is a bit of a hypothetical question, but I'm wondering:

    Would it be possible (or rather, realistically achievable) for an IM "newbie" to reach £1000 (about $1650) per month with just 4 months of research and hard-work?
    And if so, what "sector" of IM (for lack of a better word) should they be looking at? And what kind of financial input is needed?

    No, I'm not asking to be spoon-fed with ideas. I'm just wondering if I should start looking into IM as a serious venture, and what avenue I should be pursuing if I do.

    I need £1000 per month to supplement my current income and I ideally want to be in that position by the end of this year. Since I only have a bare-bones understanding of IM, I would need to be able to research adequately and start implementing well within the next 4 months. However, I don't want to waste a huge amount of time researching all the various avenues if I'm not going to be able to reach my goal by my time limit, especially since I do have offline projects in the works. I also only get £800 a month from student loans/grants, and I do have to pay for rent, food, bills, travel, study materials etc out of that so I don't have a huge amount of start-up capital. I'm willing to put the money and the effort in, but only if I have a good chance of making a decent living out of it.

    Would anyone be willing to tell me whether this is a realistic pathway I should be going down, and if so, what areas/processes/ideas should I start learning about?

    Thanks in advance.

    Yes it is possible but there are no guarantees. Everybody is different and it depends on what your talents are.
    Nobody can direct you because we don't know you. If you only have a little understanding then it is unlikely but who knows, you might surprise yourself.
    Only YOU can decide if the risk is worth it.
    If you really need money then a part-time job offers a guaranteed income.
