    Well, I'm 21 Years Old.. I have been one and a half year in IM. Currently, I'm living in Italy by my own and travelling around in Europe every now and then.

    Education:
    Studying computer engineering "Bachelor" 3 years cycle in Italy.

    I don't really care about this part a lot in my life, I know that digital marketing is my career.. Even if I failed thousands time I will figure it out and I will make it. So I divided my subjects to finish my degree in 5+ Years instead of 3 years to have more time to work and do my degree parallely.


    IM:
    • +3 Amazon Affiliate Sites.
    • 1 Adsense Site.
    • Recently, I started in a dropshipping business.
    I knew about IM from 6 years but I didn't start seriously in it until early 2016.
    I don't give up & I'm a hard worker. For these two reasons, I did a great job in all business models I started in IM.


    General Life:
    • Have a lot of friends & great connections with people in IM.
    • Partying once per 1/2 months.
    • Going to the Gym regularly.
    • I have a healthy diet and I do care about my health.
    • I don't have a girlfriend. 'had one before but she left me because she said I don't give her enough time"
    • I skip a lot of friends gathering and parties due to work. I don't have problems with that.
    • Travelling through Europe once every 2/3 months.
    • Watching Anime. 1/2 Episodes max. per day.
    • I try to keep my relation with my friends strong as much as I can as I don't go out usually due to lack of time.
    • Reading books regularly.
    Overall:

    I'm happy with my lifestyle. Specially that I'm living in Europe without costing my family a penny, Just with IM.

    However, I think it's serious than It should be. Each day I have to go co-working space/cook/gym/clean my house/study "before exams"/. I don't have free time that I can just lay on the bed and do nothing, I really miss that feeling.

    Also, due to my strict schedules and taking the life too serious, when I'm having fun (partying, playing football with friends, etc) I do feel that I wasted a lot of time and I should work more the day after.

    Last words, I'm still 21 year old. I did a lot of great things in my life, I'm quite sure that the future still holds a lot for me as I'm putting in the work.

    What do you guys think? I want to hear your advises and opinions :)

    Drop the fuckin' anime if you want to be taken seriously.

    If "watching anime" makes it in your top ten bullets for "general life", it's taking too much of your time. Spend that time maintaining your relationships instead. If you're constantly blowing off friends and your girl left you because you never had time for her, you don't have as many friends as you think you do.

    Thanks! Yes, maintaining my relationships is more important than watching Anime, I will reduce the time for it. But cut it completely? I don't think so.

    Cheers from another Italy guy :p
    Appreciate your hard work and dedication on IM, I gave up because I'm a lazy person :( maybe you can teach me something lol.
    I also share your mindset, I'm not really interested into finishing degree asap but want to develop my career online, as a front-end/full stack web developer (it's my dream).
    Don't care much about friends and girlfriends (they will all leave at some point), if you want to achieve a goal you have to put dedication and improve yourself, then friends, girlfriends and money will come to you, instead of you pursuing them. (In my opinion)
    It's cool that you have travelled at young age, I wish you good luck with your business(es) and to travel all around the world :)
    Keep doing well (and watching anime :p)!

    Wtf you saying, anime are just a way of entertainment like watching Netflix or playing a game also he is watching only few episodes a day lol.

    Keep grinding brother but don't be afraid to take a step back to relax and enjoy what's in front / around you. Seems like you have an insane work ethic so no doubt in my mind you'll find the success you're working towards. But if you miss that feeling of lying in bed and doing nothing, do it. Everyone needs a work break once in a while....if we didn't all these people selling bots would be out of business haha.

    Dude, you're doing perfectly fine, change nothing and keep the healthy balance u got for yourself.

    You'll get burned out otherwise.

    If it does include a few 15 inch tentacles then that's not our fucking business

    Just focus on one thing at one time. As for the anime thing, it normal for people at your age, just don't tell anyone around you about your hobby, unless if you are into anime forums. I was like you before at 21, but then around 27 year-old, I started getting bored watching animes, that was years ago.

    BTW, your forum username looks like that it is a real name, you might want to consider changing that into a pen name, especially after you've registered to other forums. This tool can help:

    Otherwise, if people Google your name, they might found your identity.

    One advice: change the text color, members using white theme will not be able to read anything.
