    So, I've left sixth form college at 18 (UK) since I've never really had the motivation to revise and work hard enough to get the grades that I need. I haven't enjoyed school since the age of about 12, so leaving felt like the right thing to do even though I haven't got any AS/A Levels.

    Now because I don't have a "real" job as my friends like to call it, I'm working my ass off doing freelance article writing to get the funding to buy SEO services, including backlinks, for my ClickBank promotion. I'm going to be buying up good EMD domains and operating on well-researched keywords in order to obtain traffic, and in turn ClickBank conversions through product/service reviews posted on each website. I've had some success with them in the past, making a total of $250 over my first 3 months of operation. I believe that I can scale this very effectively if things go as well as they did for my beginnings with CB.

    I feel like a scumbag every day, despite how many hours I'm working. I feel like, probably due to my upbringing, that I should be working a full time "real job" or being in college. I'm doing neither of the two, because I want to pursue IM as I think it's potentially immensely profitable.

    I know that no matter what they say, my parents have serious doubts about my capability to earn money on the internet. They probably think that I'm a lazy dropout that can't be bothered to work. As odd as it sounds, that's one of my main motivators. I want to prove them wrong.

    Hopefully in a years time I'll show them this thread and prove them wrong. I'll be posting all my significant updates and earnings here for the foreseeable future. My first goal is $100 a day, and I'm currently earning around $150 per week with freelancing.

    Thanks for taking the time to read this, and I hope you gain some knowledge, inspiration and/or motivation through my upcoming updates.

    Do you have a plan besides freelancing?

    Anyways, good luck staying focused. That's super important for somebody in your situation.

    Yeah man, I've got a a couple of backup plans. The first would be to get an IT apprenticeship in Brighton(UK) where there's loads of IT related work. The second is to go back to college next year if my IM efforts fail(which I'm 99% sure they wont). You're right, though. Staying focused has been my main issue so far, but I guess there's an issue like that with every job so it's just something I've got to get past. I've already amazed myself at how much I've stayed on track so far - with my article freelancing money I've just bought 10 private proxies. I'll be getting more in the future from the same provider if my testing goes well.

    I wish I had listened to people when I started and stopped bumming around, as now I would have had a real job working 8 hours a day. Now all I have to look forward to is going on four month holidays whilst my mates are doing their real jobs. Oh how I wish I had a real job.

    Good luck on your journey! I know what your talking about! I quitted my job last year and started my IM journey, nearly the same reactions!

    Very hard times! Nothing really worked for me! Don't get me wrong! I have not failed. I've just found 10000 ways that won't work!

    But now hard work pays off! Success will come! Haters gonna hate!

    Following your thread!

    It's stuff like this that really boosts my confidence and motivation to work online. I'm glad you've done so well for yourself man. Hopefully one day I'll be able to do the same.

    Cheers Micky!

    As you have already stated, your motivation comes from the doubt which is a good thing. I motivated myself from peoples doubt, people who have shit lives and their life revolves round being someones joey. They have no clue about life. As long as you are not happy to be that person who is someones joey, and as long as you do not give up, you will make it.

    Doesn't hurt to find a "job" for the mean time OP this way you can still fund your internet marketing projects as well.

    Well if you can achieve that, then you are not lost anything, if not then you have to hurry with getting some fast money I think
