My problem is not being able to get full access.. I don't live in the US and I am missing out many things, like country restriction and stuff.. but many people say you don't need a lot of money or anything if you really want to do.. so that could be my excuse.. lol.. I also read a lot a lot a lot, but taking too little action.. and big procrastination but i know that i dont have time. IM life is getting harder since a lot of people are jumping in to this life, and I guess if i dont take action now, that is gonna be even more difficult later.. so what i am gonna do from today is -

1. Read 2 hours a day
2. Work 5 hours a day

Like somebody above said.. instead of reading just theories, go out and make mistake yourself. i guess this is the only way it can work..

well my failure is expecting too much too soon :(

Started internet marketing near the end of july, due to being made unemployed.

a) reading too many IM forums
b) getting confused over conflicting advice on the different forums
c) ebooks - some of them are good, but most have the same info
d) stats, worrying about stats - although getting out of this now
e) tag spam - this is very annoying and not sure how to fix, makes autoblogging not as automated as thought


am still learning and will hopefully be able to make some decent money soon

Internet porn | Not marketing adult material, but actually using it myself while trying to get work done.

It's easy to become frustrated, to reach a mental block when working a project and simply turn to the bangbros to rub one out and just take a nap; thus avoiding having to do anything at all.

I was yanking the cord a dozen times a sleepless day when I started IM. I mean shit, I was already in front of the computer.

What you have to do is use internet porn as an incentive, not as a crutch. i.e. When I finish building this linkwheel, I am allowed 5 minutes on realitykings and a 30 minute nap. You would be surprised what a great motivator pornography can be.

Then again it could just be a personal vice.

I think 90% of us have been in this situ:)

the mitchell and webb show even made a sketch about it :)

working from home, wife goes out, instead of market research, just the wanking :)

As a person of vivid imagination this was waay too much info for me. Anywhooo...I wouls say that the thing that is a basterd when your starting out is PROCRASTINATION and FEAR OF FAILURE. Maaan I was so shook of failing that i didnt even want to take ''the plung''. i knew i had a method that i can work with and i thought could make work if only i just TAKE ACTION.

Buying applications/software etc. Seriously, there is a program that will do just about anything you want to do FOR FREE. Maybe it's a free trial, maybe it's an old version, maybe it's slightly dodgy... But don't invest in this sort of stuff until you have proof of concept. A wonderful moneymaking idea is only wonderful if it actually makes money.

Throwing money at a problem is easy. Fixing it is the hard part.
