    I am about to passout from my college in a month or two. I am making pretty good online but all that was done part time($3k+ a month as of now). Should I make my career in this field? How can I make sure that I don't risk out later after moving full time into IM? I need some serious advise from those who have made IM their career.

    I have done it full time since 1995 it has given me freedom to live in Spain - Macau - Hong Kong - Indonesia - Malaysia - Thailand - China - Singapore and more...

    Have I made money of course! Have I lost money yes IM is the same as most jobs good times mingle with bad times. Is it exciting you bet! Both the traveling and the online experience!

    If you want to be a free spirit and at the same time make money - Then Try It!

    ...if you haven`t found a way to make an stable income over a decent amount of time - one that would enable you to cover your life-upkeep - then your answer is your nick.
    ...do not trust on IM from the start. do something to have on board when IM fails and build your career there and IM on the side-track.

    you will know when to switch...
