    There are a lot of posts on BHW from people wanting to make money online...because that is what they love to do...but they don't want to jump into it full time because they are unsure or because there are no guarantees. Well, there are no guarantees in life, so why not take that leap of faith...

    I am going to give you an example from this morning that isn't even related to IM or online marketing...but it makes the same point.

    My little brother had a great job...amazing benefits...great pay...but he truly hated it. He always wanted to work in Major League Baseball. Our family was big into baseball growing up - we all played through high school and college. We were a baseball family.

    Well, about 6 months ago he came to me and was looking for advice. I told him fuck the current job if you aren't happy. He had a lot of money saved so I told him to take that leap and chase his dream. My other brother is much more conservative - he told him he should stay put because the job market is horrible right now. Thankfully he listened to me. To make a long story short he quit his job and set out on a mission to get hired by a Major League Baseball team...and I will spare you the boring details...but he landed his dream job. He now works for a MLB team and this morning I got a very long email form him - saying that its the most amazing feeling waking up every morning and doing what he loves. He is having the time of his life. They are in the middle of a 10 game home stretch and he said it doesn't even feel like work - THAT IS HOW YOU KNOW YOU ARE DOING THE RIGHT THING!

    My point:

    If he didn't take that leap of faith he would still be doing a job he hated.

    So....

    Never be afraid to make the jump - if you want it BAD enough you will land on your feet!

    Good luck to everyone out there - do what makes you happy!

    Ahhhh this is an oldie...got a notification that there was a reply and I forgot about this one. Kind of funny timing as I got off the phone with him about 3 hours ago and he now has another team offering him a very elite position. I took a few trips out to see him in his new city this summer and I must say that he has the best gig - and none of it would have happened if he didn't just go for it!

    As we get older time rushes by and we realize that life is short. Why be stuck doing something that doesn't make you 100% happy?

    Do what makes YOU happy and everything falls into place.

    Wow. This is absolutely amazing. Good for him! I've always wanted to be an actress. Maybe I can make a few professional skits and using some Blackhat I learned on here get a nice amount of views and make it happen. If you don't mind me asking, who is your brother?

    He isn't a professional baseball player. He WORKS in professional baseball. He works for a major league team.

    Good story man. My best friend is at a dead end job that he hates and has been doing it for years. He wants to open is own business but he doesnt have the balls to leave his current job(which pays pretty well). I keep telling him to quit or he will be miserable for the rest of his life...no matter how good the money.

    Great story.

    Life's biggest mistakes, are the risks you don't take.
