    1 year ago I opened a thread called I'm Going To Do IM [FULL-TIME] Am I Crazy? And haven?t done anything since then. I?ll explain it, I?m sure you can learn something from it.

    When I was 15 my life changed a lot due to the new home country where I will live in, United States. I am from Mexico, so the life opportunity is much better at the other side. I spent 3 years in High School and discovered the Internet Marketing world without knowing it, my first earning online was posting for a Casino blog and I could buy a Nintendo DS in 3 months.

    I never had a normal teenager life, let?s say a first beer and cigarettes with friends, marijuana, girlfriend, fights, etc... My life was only school and computer. When I turned 19 my mind was ready to do business and be financing independent in Mexico, so I used my parents? house that they were renting to do my life. The bad thing is it was my old neighborhood, everyone were on drugs, alcohol, no school, so nobody was at ?my level?. I wasted 6 months in that barrio doing the same thing as those guys and earning minimum money from IM just to party, eat and pay the bills.

    I was tired of being a bato, so I rented an office in order to avoid the noise and friend that wanted to come and see me every time they could. It is hard to work that way if you are working as freelance at your home, you need 100% of concentration. The first month it was cool, I felt like a badass 19 years old entrepreneur but after 2 months I was wasting my time going to a place that was not my nature, I starting feeling awful, I don?t want to stay in an office, most people in companies are working to be out of them and I created one, pathethic.

    I closed the 6 months cycle of the contract and learned that I?m not good being an office man and I like to be free, that?s what make me happy. So, I decided to rent an apartment, stay away from distraction and bad relatives. It was great, honestly I lived so much better, even if I was paying just for something better instead of saving and living in my parents? house. Being there I created a thread 30-Day Trial: Wake Up At 4:30 A.M. I was really inspired, I was making money, eating well, going to parties every Saturday, inviting friends, and so on. I felt really good with my life, I was living a dream, since High School I was thinking every day that my main goal is living at my hometown, have friends, and have an independent life and of course do wrong things, if you know what I mean?

    TO BE CONTINUED?

    You think time has gone by now? Wait until you have kids and see them grow up, and then you'll be like " wtf.. Where has all the time gone"
