    Hey mates,

    I just wanted to share my short story in IM.

    I've been earning in IM for about 2 months as a 17-year-old in Hungary. Usually i work 4-5 hours a day, i take it easy.
    I'm a javascript+Imacros bot writer on Fiverr and i have a stable $600+/month income now. I plan to move outside fiverr, run cpc campaigns&advertise here, on BHW as well.

    Maybe it sounds silly, but i don't want to go to school in the next semester (or idk what is the correct expression).
    Why would i study 6 more years to have the ability to get less paying job?
    Here the minimal wage is about $500 net, if you are lucky you can get a job with $2k/month salary. And it is very good here, really.

    I think all i need now is to increase my working hours to 10 hours/day and set up my site finally with the social networks.
    My goal is to reach $2k/month net before the end of summer holiday.

    That was it, thanks for your attention.
    Have a good earnings bhwers, and newbies don't give up! :)

    Studying doesn't guarantee you a job, are you planning to live in Hungry for the rest of your life? You should study because you want to learn. If you do not feel you are learning anything, then stop studying. Don't let anyone tell you to study or not, it is only your decision to make.

    I like Hungary, the people are nice, the food is good. :D
    I want to study just not now. I'm very interested in computer science, but i want to take advantage of the opportunity. I want a flat, a car etc. first to have an easier life.

    You know, Fiverr shaves a lot and makes work their sellers cheap.
    I think i can reach 2k in this 2 months with a website. I'm confident :D

    What do you mean? :D

    I've proved that there is a demand on me. I don't think that i suddenly lose all of my clients and my conversion rate becames 0.
    I think there is always a way to make money... but maybe it is just because i am a naive kid... :)

    I'm not in the content marketing buddy. I have a service to sell, i'm going to rely on paid advertising mainly. Of course i will do seo on my blog section. :)

    Yeah, you've got my point! :)

    Mate to be honnest with you, Im graduating business chollege right now. Even though I'm highly disappointed from what they teached us, I still appreciate plenty of stuff I learned there, and people I got to know with. If the reward of not going to college is $2k/m, then no - it's now worth it at all.

    If you have a good plan on how it could be scaled easily, because with enoough smart decisions you can make it happen, then it COULD work.

    Why don't you give it a 3-6 months go?

    I totally understand you.. I'm making 14x more than average salary here in Lithuania and sometimes it looks pointless to finish my studies.. but when you think about it realistically it's always good to have second plan.. IM is not stable so you never know what's gonna happen.. better get an education because if everything fails you will be doomed to flip greasy burgers for the rest of your life.. Plus School/Uni/College is fun when you don't need to worry about money :)

    you should go to school anyway for the connections you'll make and for the education. It's always a good idea to have a second plan and an even better idea to invest as much as your earnings as you can. Internet money is too dependant on google's algos.

    for me, IM is specially good in a poor/ 3rd country, like mine, because in these countries the currency is undervalued.
    so its good earning $ or € or even £ and then convert it to your shitty currency

    Like others said, school is not just about getting a better job (helps though, but not any sort of guarantee), so dropping out completely might not be as wise choice as you might think now. Then again, if I was doing IM back at my school days and making over the national average of $3100 nett I'd probably think the same.

    Finish college if you really like computer science, you won't regret it. If you're learning only for money, then college is just a waste of time. You can do IM at any age, but you cannot finish college when you get old. I think you can do both side by side, computer science is not that hard and you can work while studying. And one more thing, please start a journey thread mate, I would love to see a journey thread from you. :)

    Go to school and learn something that you can apply online as well, like programming, web development, etc.....that way you amplify your online abilities and give yourself a fall back in case it doesn't work out....plus you're young....don't rush into the stresses of running a business....go travel, meet new people, have fun with ladies, learn new things, etc......

    You'd think a business forum would have fewer lemmings.

    You're smart; make the best decision for you.

    Do a journey thread if you want your method to be saturated.

    I agree with OP. I am in Philippines and it's really great having IM job (big earnings).
    Btw you should finish your studies.
