    - $17 on CJ. Actually they removed them totally 15 days ago
    - $18.65 on Adsense.

    My Issues:

    1. My right wrist is a pain. I think I am using the mouse too much. I also worked in a laptop on my job.

    Anyone else dealing with this pain?

    Use a wristband for your wrist. As for your wife, let her know what bhw is all about. Let her join you as well. She'll understand.

    Get a gel mousepad for your wrist dude, i had the same problem as you a few years back, since using a gel mousepad I've never had the problem again. Laptop track pads are meant for hours of use and will cause you problem.

    As for your wife just explain your doing it to earn a living, would she say you were obsessed with work if you spent 2 hours a day there? Nope.

    When my wife saw one of my checks for $9k from a cpa network last year for a two week period, she never once said anything about what I did ever again. If I was up all night on the computer and never came to bed, not a peep. :)

    Truth is your wife needs to find a reason to believe. Right now she doesn't see it. As a man, you got to lead your family and show her your vision. It sounds like she doesn't understand what you are doing. Tell her about it, get her involved if possible. Most importantly, tell her you need her support to help build a better future for the both of you. She might wake up and realize her toxic behavior.

    If all this fails, ignore, and focus harder on your success. That is the most potent method to ending these types of arguments.

    As for your wrist. It is most likely from the laptop use. You have to bend your wrists really hard when using touchpads and such. If you are spending a lot of time at the computer, it's wise to invest in ergonomic equipment like some recommended. Mouse and keyboard, and make sure your sitting at eye level to your montiors, otherwise you start to have neck issues.

    my wife used to give me fits. about how much time I spend on the computer doing things. But I make more in a month than what she does all year. So now she just tucks her tail and gets me a drink when I ask for it.

    Starting out can be hard as you spend a lot of time online trying new things and reading everything you can to get better.

    Find something that both you and your wife can do. I buy and flip homes as well and this is something that we can do together. She is starting to spend more and more time online finding homes and then helps market them now when we are done.

    Guys,

    That's why I really love this forum.

    Reading your stories really helps and inspires me to continue.

    I think I will go to Office Dpt to get some gel pad this weekend. I already got the ergonomic band for my wrist. I think the missing piece are the gel pads to rest my wrist on them. Actuallly I am Ind Engineer, I donno how I did not see it come.

    Regarding my wife issue:

    I think I've been communicating every move. Every cent spent in IM has been declared as every penny earn. I think she wants to see it faster, and we all know testing, tweaking and improvement conversions takes a lots of time for a newbie like me. The issue I am struggling now is to get my visitors click my affiliate links, but I am working on it, I've read lots of IM courses but still not many about how to apply scientific changes to improve CTR.

    In other words, months a go, I was 0 knowledge about IM, my first goal was learn how to make a blog/site. Then next was how to drive traffic, and rank, I did it, now I urgently need my traffic to convert.

    I know it is matter of time. I really admire you guys, thanks for your comments and I hope really son to me at home like some of you.,

    Have a really good one.
