Not meaning to gloat but give some motivation. Sold my first amazon items today, and have $15 in adsense clicks. I just interviewed today for a job that I went to college for, but I don't really care...its pretty empowering knowing that I can make my own way and don't need some other persons approval who doesn't know me and who I've never even met. So, if your on the edge with this and don't know whether to keep going. Do it. Fight through the animosity and lack of success. What is on the other side is confidence, independence, and happiness. I'm not quite to the point that I can do this for a living, It's taken me some time and I'm not to the point that I can risk it.... but once I get there I'm quiting my part time job. It feels great. Im a bit jaded with how my work ethic has been taken advantage of. But that is why I love internet marketing. The more you put into it...the more you get out of it. It doesnt matter what your boss has to gain from you sticking around in your role. You can dump hours of time into this and you will be rewarded. I don't think any true man can work for a boss. I'm going to make it big and screw what society has to say otherwise. Good luck everyone. See you in 6 months where I'm making double what you are without having to lower myself, and work for a company that I am not passionate about.
