    Do you guys get opposition from friends or family when you talk to them about internet marketing stuff? I have a few friends and some family who basically told me to give up and try something 'real' to make money (like what?!). As of today, I've only made around $7 (100% Adsense), but I still can see a LOT more potential, and I won't quit just because my friends and family can't see that potential.

    Hell yeah. People are either ignorant or they feel threatened by it - no one likes to hear that you can set up a leave alone system that makes more than they make in a 40+ hour week of shitty labour.

    I just don't talk about it with those people - let your eventual results speak for themselves.

    The only reason they're giving you a hard time for it is because you haven't actually made any money from it. ($7?)

    Get a job and work on IM part-time.

    Quit your job when your IM income surpasses your full-time's.

    They'll stop hassling you when you start making money. Some people are just like that--they have their own opinions on everything, and if you don't do it their way, you're doing it the wrong way.

    I make a fairly healthy income from the net but I've actually pretty much given up trying to tell people I'm a marketer.

    I'm sick of the dumb founded looks, the disbelief, the "what's a search engine?", the "do people really click on those ads?", the "so how do you get clients?", the "so are you like a freelancer?", the "would you like to make a website for my brother in law?", the "can you help me with my outlook express?"

    I have a full time job...Just want some supplemental income, and if I can grow the IM to a point where it surpasses the full time job? Well hell...That's when I know I've succeeded!

    it's pretty simple, give yourself a year and see if you reach your own standards doing it.
