    I'm curious as to where you're all from and what you do...

    I presume you're all entrepreneurs who ultimately wish to earn money by being your own boss and not having to work 9-5 like all the other ants of society... am i right?

    I would also guess mostly mid 20's, with a relatively good grasp of computers :pcguru:

    Enlighten me!

    :bolt: I'm from the UK, mid 20's!

    Now in the process of cutting out the middle man. ;-)

    17.

    It all started when I played Halo 2. Saw people cheating, bought "softmodding" software called Action Replay that let me cheat in Halo 2 online.

    Got into hacking thus afterwards.

    Was apart of a big hacking community that didn't focus on money, but solely just fucking with people; but then the website went down, so I trailed away from a lot of Blackhat ways for months.

    Signed up with Clickbooth years ago before I knew what CPA was, started to get random webinar emails telling me to see this "Shoemoney Webinar!". Joined all of them, but missed them all. :( .

    Was lucky enough to catch a picture from a blog about Shoemoney and other get-rich-quick people. His desktop had a bookmark to something called BlackHatSEO.

    Googled it, found this website. The rest is history.

    19. Started using computers at age 4 on a "new" computer running Windows 3.1. :)

    Looking back on it, it makes me feel very out of place knowing I could navigate DOS like a pro by age 5. VERY VERY out of place.

    18 here. Definitely a young one as far as these forums go, only been online for a little less than 2 months, but I've made an impact I think. I'm a college student, but I live in Orlando. I ewhore for kicks and giggles and make a little money on the side. Was recently hired at the local Subway so may be straying away from 16-hour IM-ing and researching days in the future.

    Lots of young bloods here I guess... From Jakarta, Indonesia. I am 27, married with no kids yet.
    I am working from 7 to 7 in my business (not IM), Saturday and Sunday included... Making good money OFFLINE but I want to break from my daily grind... Therefore, I am taking my spare time learning IM as many things as I can... I need to focus though...

    Hey guys... Well I'm originally from (the not always so sunny state of) California, but I moved to New Zealand last Christmas... So I've been dubbed a "kiwi-in-training" by the Jafa's (look the term up in urban dictionary... its funny as). I'm 23 and started my own business when I was 13 (selling beaded jewelry to the girls and trading rare Pokemon for cash to the boys). I actually started running my mom's MLM biz when I was 14 (health and beauty products). That got me into WH hacking/security, web design and advertising. Graduated from HS at 15 at went straight into sales... of course that was when it was okay to have a kid selling stuff in a store. Now the working limit for most of these companies has gone up to 18 which is just stupid. But anyways.... from there I got into IM hardcore and never really looked back.

    Also... as you can probably tell, I'm a bit of a rambler ^_^

    Cheers!

    25, Married with a 3 y/o daughter. I am California born and raised and have lived all over this state, currently in So. Cal. Worked hard labor since the age of twelve (from concrete to painting). Lost my job working for family (early in 08) and found some one who told me a bit about craigslist shortly after. I saw my first $200 plus days with just a few hours work and haven't wanted a J.O.B since.
